The Lyrics

Short note: Reading from start to finish will reveal there's one cast member who is severely disliked and one that makes us shudder...but that's not bad going when you consider everyone in the song. Every series gets a mention in some shape or form.
The legend was born - show was trippiest in town
Starred a big flake they called Captain Kirky
The aliens said “He’s not right in the head”
Beats their guys, beds their women - “It’s work, see”
Well, I know he’s adored - Yet I am mouthin’ “Oh Lord...”
At this large-egoed fellow’s propens’ties
That arrogant dude, he alone, ‘pon review’s
Why the rest of the quadrant hates Earthies...

That Spock was denied an emotional side
Coming from, as he will, planet Vulcan
As for pointy ears though, his were bigger than most
Made it through to the last, from first season
Man moody with germs were that Bones’ main concerns
Not forgetting down in Engineering
Translator required then for his harangues:
‘Twas young Mister Scott’s brogue they’d been hearing

The next in the sky made to potter around:
Was Picard, well-spoken, hair failing
As pher’mones exude, all the women conclude
Riker bristles with sexual feelin’
Forlorn, he waits, as the mol’cules conjugate
There’s the transporter man named O’Brien
Pos’tronic drive train runs our Data’s brain
No debate: ‘Fully funct’nal, Yar’s sighin’...

With mating time games our ol’ Worf, he piped up
Sayin': "Tell ya, Earth women are fragile"
And just now and then - man named Barclay came in
Stuttered “Ju-ju-just for a short while”
The youngest guy there’s been saw Will Crusher drafted in
Steered the good ship - at helm somewhat mellow
La Forge’s main blight is his sight went outta light
Say! That Trek had these interesting fellows

His syllables slow - for the love of Sisko!
Words, he makes, turn from minutes to hours...
Gelatinous ways see the Changeling obeyed
It’s the promenade constable - Odo
Bashir’s still in search of the ultimate prize:
He prays to give Dax what he oughta
And holosuite games are the famous-y domain
Manned by Quark and by Rom, who take orders

“Make you own road”, shrewd Chakotay thinks
‘Head, it looms, spirit guide-type expansion
Tom Paris, it seems, likes his girls extreme
The mind-melding ways are for Vulcans
In mess hall though, crew says “Oh no no...”
Takes in food that Neelix has tended
And the Doc’s concerned so, as the viewers’ll all know
With the way E.M.H. is remembered

There’s Ferengis recalled with Romulans, hey?
And Cardassians, don’t forget Klingons
The Borg were slime but sublime throughout their time
Every man, as assim’lated fellow
No mention is found - you may have noticed, look ‘round
Of the last series called Enterprise - see?
“Scott Bakula’s” (I’ve said) “acting fills me with dread”
And he fails as a Captain quite poorly !

Isn't there a show on E! about the Cardassians?
Great job, with lots of episodic jokes ("Fully funct'nal, Yar's sighin' ", stuttering Barclay)
Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. To boldly stay where no one has stayed before!

It wouldn't be an official "Wreck" parody or an official "Trek" parody if I didn't at least comment, but I have to say I found this one to be highly illogical. There wasn't a single line that made me laugh -- even with my emotion chip activated. I wanted to like it, but I guess my humor receptors were non-responsive. Sorry, Hobbitses, but this one won't go to warp.

You covered them all from soup (Neelix) to nuts and bolts (Data?). Somebody here is a Trekkie!!! (At least for this parody). I really enjoyed it! 5's Gotta go...Voyager' on!! :)

Resistance is futile Mr. Pacholek! You must be assimilated! This parody is worth 555 bars of gold pressed latinum.

To the human called Pacholek: Hab SoSlI' Quch! We would be honored for you to attend the 2nd Right of Ascension ceremony - there will be painsticks involved.

If you do not not know who we are, look us up in Google pics, you will not be disappointed...

Michael Patcholek, did you really have to spoil the 5s rating on this simply because you wanted to make it an 'official' parody?
Guy - July 12, 2008 - Report this comment
M&P - Not sure which one makes me shutter - But there is one that is made to stutter. And the one disliked character is life imitating art as there is one commenter that everyone seems to have a dislike for the voting and comment that were input by this individual. I have to disagree with that commenter's critique of this fine piece of parody. This one is stellar.

Q: What did Spock see when he looked in the toilet?
A: The Captain's log.

I don't think they really had toilets on any of the starships that were featured on Trek. Has anyone ever seen one in any episode? Wanna know what I think they did?
I knew you would so my conspiracy theory on Star Trek water closets is there were none. They used the transporter for that function.

Scotty: Scott to bridge.- Wut is goin' on up there? Engineering is being flooded with anal matter.
Kirk: Scotty repeat last message - did you say anti matter? Go to yellow alert.
Scott - Captain - we've gone beyond the yellow alert it's more like a yellow and brown alert we're seein' here.
Kirk - Cancel yellow alert - flush the jeffries tubes and dump the anal matter. Reset HEADing and go to warp 5. Kirk out.
