Watch: James McAvoy Stars In Homemade Star Trek Spoof ‘Star Force: Sci-Fisolation’

Everyone has found different ways to cope under the isolation of quarantine. Actor James McAvoy and some of his actor friends decided to spend part of their time in isolation making their own Star Trek-inspired show titled Star Force: Sci-Fisolation. They’ve already released two short episodes.

Star Force: Sci-Fisolation – episodes 1 & 2

A few weeks ago Scottish actor James McAvoy (Split, X-Men) announced Star Force: Sci-Fisolation on his Instragram as “a piece of work I’m immensely proud of and cannot wait to share with you all.” He later posted the first episode of this spoof in which he stars as a starship captain. The cast also includes Caitriona Balfe (Outlander), Steven Cree (Outlander), and Kevin Mains (Outlaw King). The film was made entirely on phones and shot from home using whatever props, costumes, and makeup each actor could work out on their own.

A few days ago the second episode was posted.

McAvoy finally gets his Star Trek fix

James McAvoy has longed to be in Star Trek. When J.J. Abrams was first putting together his cast for his first Star Trek films, McAvoy expressed interest in the role of Scotty and was even rumored to have landed the role. When Abrams was prepping his first Star Trek sequel, McAvoy stated he would “kill” for a part. The actor may be best known for playing the younger version of Charles Xavier in a series of X-Men films, taking on the role first played by Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Sir Patrick Stewart. When Star Trek: Picard was first announced, McAvoy suggested he could play a younger version of Stewart again if the new Trek show needed young Picard flashbacks. Last year he brought up the idea again, saying he was “jonesing for some Trekkin‘” and even demonstrating his Picardisms and ability to command from a captain’s chair.

This is incredible.

woah… i posted this to a friends group and got this message?

audition for a short trek

As Dr. Smith would say…..Oh the pain…..the pain… dear boy…..

That was fun!

Episode 2 was more engaging than the first.

I’m looking forward to a third.

SH should give them the opportunity to make a Short Trek.

Very clever! I love it! I’m sure there will be an episode three to search for the clone…


Bravo! Better than Discovery!

That’s setting the bar low. But agreed, this was way more engaging.

I came to the comments expecting to find this: lame, but expected.

Well, that was…something.


Aye. Truly Awful.

Call me a fanboy, as McAvoy MUST MUST MUST be brought in for a Stargazer flashback on “Picard”!

Might be tricky to have the same Jack Crusher actor age-wise… Maybe Matt Bomer instead?
