Giant Freakin Robot says fans at a convention voted J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek: Into Darkness the worst Star Trek movie ever. The fans also anointed the Trek spoof GalaxyQuest an honorary Star Trek movie and voted it seventh on their list of favorites. With both thoughts in mind GFR passed along the latest video in the satirical “What if J.J. Abrams made….?” canon, a trailer for the Abrams version of GalaxyQuest.
First off in this reimagining, if Abrams helmed Galaxy Quest it would bear the overly serious subtitle The Omega 13 Prophecies…. You may also notice a lack of Abrams’ trademark, and oft debated, lens flare. I’m okay with that.
James H. Burns has noticed this trend of creating Trek humor at Abrams’ expense himself. When he sent me a link to the science news item titled ”At last Voyager 1 slips into interstellar space” he added, “A Star Trek, The Motion Picture PREQUEL? Just don't tell J.J. Abrams!”
NASA’s Voyager 1 spacecraft exited the vast bubble of particles that encircles the sun and planets on August 25, 2012, mission scientists report …
NASA launched Voyager 1 and 2 in 1977 to explore the outer planets, but from the beginning Stone’s team hoped the probes would survive long enough to investigate the region of space where our star’s dominance finally wanes.
