Star Trek Fan Film - The Search For Spock's Body Parts

3 posts in this topic

In 1988, years before Star Trek fan films became the latest rage, my brother and I made a mock episode of TOS (with a VHS camcorder!). Now that fan films have become so popular, I decided the time was right to digitize the "movie" and put it on the web for other Star Trek fans to enjoy.

 

"The Search For Spock's Body Parts" is a 20 minute comedy adventure featuring Captain Kirk, Dr. McCoy, Mr. Spock, and some surprising supporting characters. (Warning: if this video were a movie, it probably would be rated PG-13, as it has one profanity and one somewhat racy scene).

 

Before the web, I didn't have a good way to share this video with other Star Trek fans (other than my friends and family). Now I've unleashed it to the world at large on YouTube and Blip.TV -- and I welcome any feedback. In terms of production value, keep in mind that my brother and I made the movie as college students with very primitive equipment and that the version on the web has been digitized from VHS and then compressed for the web; even so, I think Star Trek fans will enjoy the story and the humor.

Also, if you enjoy Star Trek humor, then you also may want to check out an audio Star Trek parody I wrote, directed and produced with Shoestring Radio Theatre in the 1990s:

 

"Captain's Log, Accidental" (5MB MP3 file)

 

Plot: The crew of the starship "Exitprise" encounters one obstacle after another while attempting to deliver a vaccine to plague victims in this 12-minute "Star Trek" spoof.

 

If you'd like to listen, you can go to my personal web site and look for the "Captain's Log, Accidental" hyperlink to download the 5MB MP3 file.
