This is simply a fan video of the not-quite-as-new Star Trek movie trailer set to footage from the old Star Trek cartoon. It’s as simple as that, and I really have nothing else to say on the matter, except that the Star Trek cartoon is never not funny. I could watch the alien yink that thing out of Uhura’s hand for a week straight, and watch little Spock push over that Vulcan kid for a few days shy of forever. Thanks to Snoodle for the tip.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
