Captain Kirk is climbing a mountain, climbing a mountain. via

Another favorite of mine from these folks: Tangerine.

"Back to the Ship" is definitely one of the finest Shatner derivatives on the web at the moment.

I was a bit "meh" on the Kirk one (spoofing Shatner just seems redundant--the original clip is more compelling--and more bizarre), but the "Tangerine" one is great.

And Charles Nelson Reilly made sweet sweet love to a manatee... it all makes sense to me now.

I liked the part where Captain Kirk talked about a mountain erotically.

Awesome original video is, indeed, awesome.

See, even when he made this, he was already self-aware. With self-awareness there is no camp, only irony.

I need idents on a few of the movies in that Back to the Ship one.

scurius, if memory serves, a lot of those intercut scenes are from the original Battlestar Galactica, including the four-eyed disco chicks with two mouths. I feel like I'm breathing underwater. Hello, Kirk to crew?

My own favorite bit of Star Trek comedy is Kevin Pollack's bit about a recasted Star Trek. It truly must be seen to be believed.

Aw, man, just watched the clip and he stops the bit abruptly! Way the original clip ends is that: Bill Murray as Gen. Kang answers the hail, and remotely zaps Kirk unconscious. Spock tells him Chekov "Warp Factor 90" and tells Uhura to get Kang off the screen. Only to find that Uhura has become ... Rodney Dangerfield.

Got this off of Star Trek Comedy: the Unofficial Album, which is really a very fun album for any Trekkie.

boo_radley, I'm almost astonished nobody's made a Vladimir Putin Facts website yet.

I found the Star Trek Cookbook today at the library, right between books of "Russian Recipes" and "Old Fashioned Recipes." I don't know if that's a flaw in the Dewey Decimal System or what, but I just thought I'd share.

I didn't take it out, but reading more online, it appears it was written by the guy who played Neelix. Eww. Also, the reviews on Amazon are fun, and they're sincere, unlike the Tuscan milk reviews.
