Here’s a brilliant and hysterical fan-made short created with just a green screen, one TNG uniform, a digital background, two VFX shots from TNG, a bunch of voice-overs, and one very relatable guy from the IT department on board the Enterprise-D. Long live IT Guy!

These are “mini” fan films that just make a Trekkie wanna laugh!
New video added to FUNNY STUFF: “Star Trek TAG TEAM”
Like wrestling? Hate wrestling? Either way, you’re sure to to get a laugh out of Star Trek: TAG TEAM, a short parody from the folks at Spiffy Films. They describe themselves as “…animated parodies, with a bent towards tactical flubbery, contextual inconsistency and immersion-busting minutiae; poking holes in all the places your brain had quite happily decided to leave the heck alone, because you were trying to enjoy your popcorn, gosh dernit…” Here’s what happened when Spiffy Films got their hands on Star Trek:
New video added to FUNNY STUFF: “Sepia Trek”
I think its time for a much-needed laugh and smile here at Fan Film Factor. So check out this very creative, original, and well-edited fan interpretation of an iconic scene from Star Trek III: The Search for Spock…IF THE MOVIE HAD BEEN MADE BACK IN 1907!
New video(s) added to FUNNY STUFF: “Make It So” and “TIE After TIE”
In late 2013, the Earth was invaded…by a song. The song would go on to win the Academy Award a few months later, but long before that, nearly every little girl on the planet (and many little boys, too) were singing it everywhere they went! And while most adults couldn’t remember the lyrics no matter how hard we tried to memorize them (frozen fractals???), we all knew the three-word name of the song from the chorus: “Let It Go!”
It took less than two months for a Star Trek parody of that infectious melody to make its appearance, compliments of a Canadian singing duo from Toronto known as Debs & Errol. Their band broke up in 2015, sadly, but not before giving the world numerous geek parody songs and music videos…most of which can be found on their YouTube channel. And of course, what better way to parody the words “Let It Go!” than with Jean-Luc Picard’s patented command catch-phrase: “Make It So!”
But aside from simply being a clever idea, the parody lyrics are amazingly fitting to the plot of the eighth Star Trek feature film First Contact, the movie clips follow those lyrics perfectly, and the singing is refreshingly on key (thank God!). Take a look:
But wait! There’s more!!!
Debs and Errol have a whole bunch of parody videos up on their YouTube channel, but my absolute FAVORITE, even more than the “Make It So!” Star Trek one, is this brilliant Star Wars parody music video, “TIE After TIE.” You’re NOT going to regret this:
New video added to FUNNY STUFF: “Star Trek Beyond Cast Dubsmash Compilation!”
Whether you loved, hated, or felt ambivalent about Star Trek Beyond, I think you’ll really enjoy this fun video compilation of the cast Dubsmashing. And if you don’t know what it means to Dub Smash, well, watch the video and you’ll figure it out pretty fast. Get ready to smile…
New video added to FUNNY STUFF: “CEASE and DESIST”
If you feel the way most Trekkers do about the new fan film guidelines, take a look at what writer/director/steadicam operator (who also did camera work on Renegades) Scotty Baker put together…
New video added to FUNNY STUFF: “Which is Nerdier: Star Wars or Star Trek?”
We haven’t had a good laugh around here for a while. What better way to bring back a little fan film levity than with the hilarious comedic brilliance from the folks at CollegeHumor…
New video added to FUNNY STUFF: “Thank God I’m a Star Trek Boy”
Pretty clever lyrics–whether or not you like John Denver (which I do!)…
New video added to FUNNY STUFF: “Star Trek Rap Battle – Picard vs Kirk”
This well done rap battle between Picard and Kirk mixes in just a wee bit of marketing for a Star Trek app, but it’s still amazingly clever and well done…
New video added to FUNNY STUFF: “Musicless / KIRK vs. GORN”
This all-too-familiar battle between Kirk and the Gorn becomes hilarious when you take away the music and hissing…
