T is for Trekthriller! A great story creates a sense of danger like a threat to the ship or an invasion force beaming aboard drawing the viewer into the experience! Remember when Kirk gave the Klingon Commander a boot in the face sending Kruge flying into the fiery abyss of flames in Star Trek III. Who were you rooting for? Perhaps, the greedy Klingon got what he deserved! Geeze, those flames sure must have hurt!!!

Or how about when Darth Vader grabs Emperor Palpatine and sends him flying down the death star's reactor shaft in Star Wars, all to save Luke Skywalker. In an epic moment of sheer exasperation Vader proves he not just a killing machine and then all is revealed. How did you react? Were you terrified? Be honest now, you did lurch left and right in your seat, didn't you? Were you rooting for the Jedi or the darkside?

Treklong and Prosper, trekkers.

Star Trek Heroes

Science Fiction has lots of villains, right? "Fire when ready, Mr Chekov. Lay in a pattern, fire, fire, fire!" is the Kirk attitude! When a ship gets blown to blue blazes or the bad guy is melted by a ray gun, hey thats what we call an epic sci-fi experience.

My reaction is nearly always, Yessss!! or the exact opposite, WHY Oh WHY! Remember when Commander Data in Star Trek's TNG movie "Nemesis", got blown to bits aboard the Romulan spaceship? Well, the actor Brent Spiner cowrote the movie, so maybe he wanted Data to die. What was you reaction? Which sci-fi characters death brought a tear to your eye, Captain Kirk's under the bridge, the Borg Queen or Commander Data's big bang?

Robotic Datas' Epic Win

Heres our Robotic Enterprise-D Science Officer, Commander Data awaiting word on missing DNA fragments essential to locating a super humanoid master species. Anyway what makes this youtube funny is the fact Data's positronic brain is encased in battleship armour!

He has the strength of 10 men, doesn't get tired, rust or ever sleep! In an epic encounter with the Klingon Nu’Daq, our metal friend Data is challenged to an armwrestle, Klingon style. When Nu’Daq loses he tries a new move. Lets just say the Klingon isn't counting on Data's very hard head.

Data: "My upper spinal support is a polyalloy designed for extreme stress. My skull is composed of cortenide and duranium."

When you listen closely you can hear chuckles in the Enterprises Ten Forward bar. Should Guinan aka Whoopi Goldberg have intervened? Did you know about Data's molybdenum-cobalt, tripolymer or polyalloys? What would you have done in the same situation?

 Laugh Long and prosper, trekinators!

Qapla! Klingon for Success.

Qapla is the Klingon word meaning success! Its often used in conversation when bidding someone farewell. Some useful examples are from Star Trek III: Search for Spock and TNG's Sins of the Father and Aquiel episodes.

Sins of the father was Worfs story and a relaunch of the Klingon Mythos. The Klingon Dictionary is the Official Guide to Klingon words and phrases which explains how the grammar works for all you aspiring Klingons!

 In an interesting twist, STNG Klingon General Martok was elected to office last Novmber for New York's state elections.

Do you want to go targ hunting with Martok? Perhaps you think like a Klingon or speak the lingo?

Well then trekker your all set for a rach time! Qapla!

Cable Guy Star Trek Battle

Remember Kirk and Spock's duel in Star Trek's classic episode of Amok Time? Well, here's Jim Carey's skit of trek's famous fight to the death scrap. It's an epic "Cable Guy" parody really. When you play the clip you'll see the master of crazy comedy lampooning around as Chip with a terrified Kovac slugging it out in the arena. Listen out for Carey's improvised "Star Trek" sound effects which are a total hoot.

"All right you want to play rough? Daddy can play rough." Da-na, na, na, na, na, naaa, na-naa, na, na.

"Like when Spock had to play Kirk on Star Trek, best friends forced to do battle." - Cable Guy.

"Chip this isn't funny, will you stop it!!"

"The name is Spock, if we don't battle to the death, they will kill us both." - Cable Guy.

 "This isn't Star Trek" yells Kovac.
