A week from today the new Star Trek parody webseries Red Shirt Diaries premiere and TrekMovie has a couple of clips, including an exclusive, plus all the details on the new show.
Red Shirt Diaries coming next week
As TrekMovie first reported in July, The Red Shirt Diaries is a new Star Trek comedy webseries set on board the USS Enterprise during the five year mission. The show is presented as the personal video blog of Ensign Williams (played by Victoria Robinson) who is a member of Starfleet Security. Each webiside will take place during the events of one of the original Star Trek episodes, starting with the first episode "The Man Trap."
In this exclusive clip from episode 4 "The Naked Time" Sulu drops by Ensign Williams’ quarters.
As you can see from the clip, members of the crew will appear in Red Shirt Diaries, (with the exception of Uhura) they will be off-camera or cropped. Here is a clip from episode 5 "The Enemy Within" with Williams dealing with (half of) Captain Kirk.
Each episode will be 3 minutes long. The first season of Red Shirt Diaries will cover the first 10 episodes of Star Trek, but the team behind the show hope to return and finish up the the rest of TOS season 1 with a second season of webisodes. Episodes will be released on a weekly basis every Monday starting next week.

Ya gotta love it!
Love the premise!
Alas someone has no idea how James T. ShatKirk talks — he, ummm, doesn’t have a British accent …
But the series looks funny. I like the premise, and the young lady.
Somebody does, however, do a good Takei impression
I can’t believe Anthony Pascale gets upset over poo puns but finds it perfectly okay to post an incredibly suggestive image like that.
Good for a laugh. I look forward to seeing them as they become available.
Now this shows promise. Would love to see what they do with Mirror Mirror.
yes, very good premise! and Ensign Williams is like-able…
…might become annoying fairly quickly… but hope not ;-)
The premise sounds great! This would be a great animated series as well – imagine a group of seven “lower decks” crewmen from different departments who star in every episode of TOS, showcasing it from a different viewpoint. Didn’t Star Wars have a comic book series like that, with two comedic stormtroopers? They both had funny names, I can’t remember what it was….
OMG! They got Sulu’s sword wrong! This is a disaster!
Does look promising.
it should be fun a likable actor playing the red shirt
Lately I think I’ve come to the realization if you come across something that isn’t your cup of tea that it’s best to withhold your comments.
This looks funny, although the impressions of Sulu and Kirk are pretty bad. Hopefully, the original crew won’t interact with the red shirt too much.
Carrying on a long and glorious tradition of the enlisted crew mocking the officers….
Just noticed Kirk was in a JJverse shirt.
