Budget-less Star Trek Spoof Is Fantastic, But Needs More Lens Flare

Posted by Tim Sheehy on May 12, 2010 in Fandom, Star Trek |


This little video might spoil J.J. Abram’s Star Trek for you, but if you haven’t seen the film, you deserve to have it spoiled by now. While I was reading Simon Pegg’s (Scotty) tweets, I stumbled upon a link to this hilarious, albeit short, spoof of the 2009 sci-fi blockbuster. Push It Films, known on YouTube for their various low-budget spoofs, really went all out with this one — though I have to admit I a bit disappointed by the lack of lens flare, because if anything about has yet to be spoofed to death, it’s that.

I’m really not even sure which part of this entertains me most, the a capella soundtrack, shoddy prop ships, or that impression of Eric Bana’s Nero. All of them are just so perfect, I just about died of laughter before the clip even finished. While I wish I could say I enjoyed more of Push It’s spoofs, I’ve yet to come across one as good as this, but if you’re interested, check out their YouTube channel here.
