Star Trek Acapella Medley! From The Warp Zone

Welcome to The Warp Zone! Known for their parodies and acapella magic ranging from Jurrasic Park to Star Wars to Darkwing Duck and beyond … here they present the theme songs from Star Trek: The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager, and Enterprise… sorry Discovery maybe next time.

From their facebook page, the self-described The Warp Zone “is nerdy sketch comedy, gaming, and music videos brought to you by five loveable dudes” Davis, Schroeder, Ryan, Fish, and Odom… check them out here on youtube! They are well worth your time.

Just getting back into the posting habit after the birth of our “boo-tiful baby” granddaughter. Celebrating her third month of life just in time for Halloween expect to see lots of Star Trek themed baby wear if Grandma has anything to say about it!

Consider following The Warp Zone on Facebook or YouTube… They are well worth the follow just to brighten your day and enjoy more nerd stuff… and who doesn’t want more nerd stuff in their life?! I know we take all the nerd fun we can get… of course our heart belongs to Star Trek but there is room for all flavors and colors in our nerdy hearts.

What do you think of The Warp Zone? Have any favorite Star Trek parodies you’d like to see featured? Let us know in the comments below! Happy Haunting everyone… and as always… boldly go Star Trek style!

Live Long and Prosper!

And just because we also have a fondness for The X-Files… here is The Warp Zone acapella version of The X-Files theme song to round out your visit to our blog. Granted they are dressed more like the dudes from The Men in Black but I suppose we can forgive them that small error since they nail the song itself. Take care everyone! Enjoy.

Star Trek TNG Make it So / Let it Go Disney Parody

Back after a short hiatus for the birth of our granddaughter (and Jacob’s niece!) In honor of our new little girl here is a (really … really really) well-done parody of Disney’s Frozen: Let it Go…

From Debs & Errol on Youtube comes this Let it Go parody which, as you probably know, is an exceptionally hard to sing song. Well, Debs nails it. And the lyrics… perfection! Following the plot of The Next Generation movie First Contact.

“You’re all Astronauts on some kind of Star Trek”… arguably the best line ever.

First Contact was the first Trek film that did not include the cast of the Original Series and featured the cast of Next Gen instead. Time Travel. Borg. What more could you ask for?

In case you somehow missed the movie (and if you did please correct that asap…) here is the trailer…

Star Trek: Enterprise – Faith of the Heart

Yes, yes, I know. We don’t like Enterprise. Or we’re not supposed to like Enterprise. (Disclaimer: I actually do like Enterprise.) I wanted to share Faith of the Heart from the opening credits for the first two seasons because they are so well done. Keep scrolling down for an extended mix of the theme song…a cover of the Rod Stewart single sung by Russell Watson.

By the way… the featured pic above is Connor Trinneer (far left) and Scott Bakula (far right) in costume alongside three members of the crew of the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise (CVN-65) U.S. Navy photo by Chief Journalist Mark O. Piggott.

Faith of the Heart… Enterprise Opening Credits…

But what we all CAN agree on is that the theme song for this installment of the series was mind-blowingly, grab a tissue, pretend you have allergies, deeply moving. Yes, I teared up watching this. No, you don’t have to do the same. I know I’m freakish like that. I remember watching when the space shuttle Challenger exploded and I will never forget. Christa McAuliffe was and is an inspiration to all us ‘regular girls’ that dreams do come true and they are worth the risk.

STS-51-L crew: (front row) Michael J. Smith, Dick Scobee, Ronald McNair; (back row) Ellison Onizuka, Christa McAuliffe, Gregory Jarvis, Judith Resnik.

To me, this encompasses all we love about Star Trek. It’s not just a cool geeky sci-fi series for technonerds, although it is all that. It is also about dreams and visions and hopes about what we can accomplish when we try, when we explore, and when we boldly go where no one has gone before…

Faith of the Heart by Rod Stewart

It’s been a long road
Getting from there to here
It’s been a long time
But my time is finally near

And I can feel the change in the wind right now
Nothing’s in my way
And they’re not gonna hold me down no more
No they’re not gonna hold me down

Cause I’ve got faith of the heart
I’m going where my heart will take me
I’ve got faith to believe
I can do anything
I’ve got strength of the soul
No one’s going to bend nor break me
I can reach any star
I’ve got faith
Faith of the heart

It’s been a long night
Trying to find my way
Been through the darkness
Now I finally have my day

And I will see my dream come alive at last
I will touch the sky
And they’re not gonna hold me down no more
No they’re not gonna change my mind

Cause I’ve got faith of the heart
I’m going where my heart will take me
I’ve got faith to believe
I can do anything
I’ve got strength of the soul
No one’s going to bend nor break me
I can reach any star
I’ve got faith
Faith of the heart

I know the wind’s so cold
I’ve seen the darkest days
But now the winds I feel
Are only winds of change

I’ve been through the fire
And I’ve been through the rain
But I’ll be fine

Cause I’ve got faith of the heart
I’m going where my heart will take me
I’ve got faith to believe
I can do anything
I’ve got strength of the soul
No one’s going to bend nor break me
I can reach any star
I’ve got faith
Faith of the heart

Leonard Nimoy Sings! Bilbo Baggins

I’m so sad that I never got to meet Leonard Nimoy in person. Isn’t that an excellent pic of him? Photo Cred: Leonard Nimoy by Gage Skidmore.

Of course, we all remember him best as Spock but he also had a lot of other memorable moments for us to enjoy. One of the best that takes me right back to the 1960’s (time travel… it’s a thing) is his rendition of The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins.

I’ll post the original for you but then I’ll also post a convention clip of him doing a few minutes live. (Scroll down! It’s worth it… I promise!)

Leonard Nimoy The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins


Okay, I really wish I had seen this in person but I’ll have to settle for the video same as you. Honestly, it is impossible to watch this without smiling. Try it I dare ya! This is from the Fan Expo in 2009 posted by tsukishime.

I’ve never been to a Fan Expo but you can tell from the video these guys are just super friendly and super caring of the fans. I think that is one thing that makes Star Trek stand out from all the other franchises out there… the family feeling you get. You can be the nerdiest geek ever and still be welcome. That is pretty special!

Star Trek Beyond costars on Lip Sync Battle!

Adding some music to the mix is always worthwhile… so today… for your listening and viewing pleasure… the fantabulous costars of “Star Trek: Beyond“, Zoë Saldaña and Zachary Quinto mix it up on Lip Sync Battle! Zoe Saldana performs TLC’s hit “No Scrubs” with special guests T-Boz and Chilli then Zachary Quinto brings it on as Missy Elliott with his performance of “Get Ur Freak On.”

Who won this Lip Sync Battle? Vote in the comments below!

TLC’s No Scrubs…  (partial lyrics)

“No, I don’t want no scrubs
A scrub is a guy that can’t get no love from me
Hangin’ out the passenger side of his best friend’s ride
Trying to holla at me
I don’t want no scrubs
A scrub is a guy that can’t get no love from me
Hangin’ out the passenger side of his best friend’s ride
Trying to holla at me”

Missy Elliott’s Get Ur Freak On… (partial lyrics)

“Missy be puttin’ it down
I’m the hottest ’round
I told y’all mother-ooh
Y’all can’t stop me now
Listen to me now
I’m lasting twenty rounds
And if you want me then come and get me now
Is you with me now?
Then biggie-biggie-bounce
I know you dig the way I switch my style
People sing around
Now people gather ’round
Now people jump around”

Technically I know… not Star Trek… but Lip Sync Battle hosted by LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen is just plain fun and when you toss two of our favorite new Trek stars into the show what’s not to love?! I hope they invite more of our favorites onto the show and you know, if they do, I’ll add them here… I can’t resist! In the meantime, I’ll keep searching for more fun Star Trek related music… have some you’d like to see here? Let me know!

Before you go please comment with your vote… who won this challenge? Zoe or Zachary?
