The Lyrics

[ Captain Kirk's Log: ]

I met a brute today, oh boy
A cosmic yucky man who's named Trelayne

And though this fool was rather mad
Turns out he's just a lad
His parents said he's bad

He knew he'd find
Out in the stars,
Through telescopes,
Some new delightful game

His proud god-ego bloomed and flared

He'd be this great new lord

Squire of the planet Gothos, he was sure he'd be adored


I saw a film today, oh boy
The Nazi army's going to win the war
If Edith Keeler's life is saved
I feel like I could cry

Now Keeler must die

Although I love...her...now...


[ Captain Picard's Log: ]

Woke up
Got out of bed
Need no comb for my bald head

Replicator's on, I drank a cup,
Of something hot, my favorite tea Earl Grey

Found a probe, out there ahead
From a star sys-tem long dead

Suddenly it flared
Our shields it broke

To me it spoke
Of a lifetime in a dream

Ahh...ah-ah-ahh...ah-ah-ahh...ah-ahh...
Ahh...ah-ah-ahh...ah-ah-ahh...ah-ahh...


[ Captain Kirk's Log: ]

They bred explosively, oh boy
Four million Tribbles on this star-base here

And though they're cute and rather small
Jones will pick up them all

It'll take him seventeen-point-nine years to collect them all

While they hiss at...Kling-ons...

Great job, Captain JD. Nothing like jumping between generations.

I'm pretty sure the writers of TNG got the idea to Q from the Trelayne eppy of TOS. Damn, do I feel nerdy making that kind of analysis or what... :-)

Very clever,. accurate and concise re-telling of those memorable old original episodes. Aye, Captain Johnny, I'd beam ya' over some 5's but the blasted transporter is on the blink again, so I'll just eject 'em out the cargo port...I'm sure you'll be able to pick them up soon since it appears you have been roaming around the galaxy a bit lately here on the site...

Johnny: For the benefit of Mr. Scott, will there be a parody? You could do "Good Morning, Good Morning" for "Mission: Impossible," another Leonard Nimoy show (as in, "Good morning, Mr. Phelps"). Know 1: You're hardly the first to make that inference. In fact, there's even a ST novel (though Paramount points out that such books are not "canon") that confirms your suspicion, and when Trelayne grew up, look out... Trelayne, the Squire of Gothos, was played by William Campbell, who also played Klingon Captain Koloth in "The Trouble With Tribbles" and an older Koloth in a DS9 episode.

Thanks Michael. For the benefit of no one in particular, there will indeed be another parody...stay tuned. And I have read that non-canonical ST book, "Q Squared", about how the grown-up Trelayne does battle with the John-DeLancie-Q we all know and love and sends him back to the beginning of the universe, from which time he (the JDL-Q) has to struggle back through billions and billions of years to work his way back to the "present" to put Trelyane in his place...a fun read indeed, but not exactly challenging to the intellect --- but hey, nobody ever accused ST of being THAT, did they? ;-)

And I know of William Campbell's multiple Trek appearances as you described --- he obviously relished them all!

Let's see, what rhymes with "Koloth"...
Kristof Robertson - March 08, 2005 - Report this comment
As Paul R is the don of pirate parodies, and Pacholek is the lord of Edmund Fitzgerald, I can see a Johnny D Star Trek dynasty emerging....good job. 555

Thanks Kristof.

Congrats on getting a whole album under your parody belt. Your finale was anticlimactic as it was too Trek-specific for me, but it was a good job done all around.

Thank you, Agrimorfee.

in case you haven't noticed, I've been trying to read and comment on most your parodies... Anyway, this is a good parody, I've been having trouble thinking of a good way to parody this song.
