The Actual Star Trek: Generations Video

Some of you were bitching that the recent Star Trek trailer makes the movie look like some dumb action flick, and not Trek. Obviously, most of the world considers that a good thing, and I can’t help but wonder if Gene Roddenberry would be among that crowd. For instance, the original series had as much action as a low-budget sci-fi series in the ’60s could muster, which admittedly meant a lot of fist-fights instead of interstellar battles, but it’s not like a few good action scenes ever stopped a movie from being thoughtful.

Case in point — someone made a mash-up of original Star Trek series footage, cued to the sounds of the new trailer. I think it works out shockingly well, myself, but I’ve always preferred Kirk and crew best. (Via /Film)
