Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning is a 2005 motion picture. Produced over seven years by five friends in a flat with a small budget and the support of hundreds of fans it became a huge internet hit with over 8 million downloads to date. It is a dark science fiction comedy about domination of the world and the universe, and a parody of the Star Trek and Babylon 5 universes.
It’s hokey. So was the original Star Trek really. It’s Star Trek New Voyages. It’s a fan fiction organization that lives on what you’ll donate to them on a Home Depot card. This show wouldn’t further the franchise commercially, but most Star Trek fan fiction is so bad that it hurts. This production is the brain child of professional Elvis impersonator, James Cawley. Is it Captain Kirk or is it Elvis? Sometimes this show gets really stupid, but it is a well done production given it’s done by a bunch of fans. This looks like fun. Unlike a lot of the fan fiction stuff, this show doesn’t chroma key things. The sets are real, including a replica Enterprise bridge.
I don’t know if this is the answer to what was wrong with Into Darkness, but this solution is funny.
There are quite a few attempts at Star Trek fan films and this one is one of the finest. I loved this story about the Freighter Aurora with it’s young captain and Vulcan first officer. It’s a remarkable job of a 3D animated movie.
