Template:Realworld Template:StarTrekParodies The following are Star Trek parodies and references in film.


The A-Team

A bogus movie sent to Murdock as part of his escape stars "Reginald Barclay," which had been played by the original Murdock Dwight Schultz. Schultz himself appeared in an after-credits scene involving Murdock.

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective

In this film, Jim Carrey – as Ace Ventura: Pet Detective – does impressions of several characters from Star Trek: The Original Series. While investigating an empty pool for clues as to the abduction of Snowflake, the dolphin mascot for the Miami Dolphins, Ace impersonates Captain Kirk, holding his sunglasses as though they were a communicator. As Kirk, Ace "records" a log entry into his sunglasses, complete with William Shatner's clipped dialog, stating:

"Captain's log, stardate 23.9, rounded off to the... nearest decimal point. We've... traveled back in time to save an ancient species from... total annihilation. So far... no... signs of aquatic life, but I'm going to find it. If I have to tear this universe another black hole, I'm going to find it. I've... GOT TO, MISTER!"

Ace then jumps forward to look at a drain in the pool and, with his face in the camera, impersonates Scotty:

Ah just can't do it, Captain. Ah don't have the POWER!

And Dr. McCoy:

For God's sake, Jim, I'm a doctor, not a pool man!


After the rock band, The Lone Rangers, take over a radio station one of the band members shouts into the microphone "Warp Speed, Mr. Sulu."

Airplane II: The Sequel

The Enterprise in Airplane II: The Sequel

While the original Airplane! movie was a parody of airplane disaster films, the second picture parodied science fiction, including Star Trek with scenes such as:

  • The doors aboard the Mayflower hiss open with the same sound effect used for the doors on the Enterprise in Star Trek: The Motion Picture and Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.
  • The Mayflower is equipped a "worp drive" (sic), an obvious reference to Star Trek's warp drive. The maximum speed is "worp 0.5", which is the first speed ordered by James T. Kirk in Star Trek: The Motion Picture.
  • The "voice-activated doors" at the Alpha-Beta Lunar Base are activated by the user imitating the door sound effect from the The Original Series.
  • Commander Buck Murdock is played by William Shatner, who plays him in the vein of Captain Kirk.
  • Commander Murdock is confronted with "this thing that has red lights that keeps going back and forth" which seemingly has no other function. The prop, is in fact, part of the Regula I set from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, where it serves the same function. The same prop later by appeared in Star Trek V: The Final Frontier, Star Trek Generations, and frequently on The Next Generation, Voyager, and even Enterprise, although some of these times the blinking lights were blue instead of red. (The prop even appears in some non-Trek films such as "Last Starfighter", as noted by internet reviewer Mr Plinkett of Red Letter Media in his Star Trek: Generations review) Later, Murdock is confronted with "lights that are blinking out of sequence", a reference to the computer displays on the bridge of the Enterprise in TOS.
  • Murdock orders "a complete file on everyone who's seen The Sound of Music more than four times." The Sound of Music was directed by Robert Wise, who directed Star Trek: The Motion Picture and stars Christopher Plummer, who later played General Chang in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country.
  • While gazing through a periscope, Commander Murdock is astounded to find the Enterprise flying through space.

Another You

As the main characters are in a mental hospital one of the patients stars an impersonation of Captain Kirk.


After having been asked by the United States government to save the world from an impending impact event, Rockhound (Steve Buscemi), member of the drill team briefed by NASA, shows his enthusiasm by uttering the famous lines "Beam me up, Scotty!"

Austin Powers films

Although the movies are a parody of various James Bond films, the so-called "Fembots" in the first movie – Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery – are a parody of the androids seen in TOS: "I, Mudd". They are even described as "the latest in android replicant technology".

In the second movie of the trilogy, Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me, a scene involving time travel also pokes fun at Trekkies' notorious reputation for analyzing seemingly inconsequential continuity errors. Doctor Evil travels back in time from the 1990s to 1969 in order to steal Austin Powers' "mojo" while Powers is cryogenically frozen. When the future Austin realizes his mojo is gone and is about to be sent back in time to stop Doctor Evil, he and Basil Exposition have the following exchange:

Austin: "So, Basil, if I travel back to 1969 and I was frozen in 1967, I could go look at my frozen self. But, if I'm still frozen in 1967, how could I have been unthawed in the '90s and traveled back to the sixties? Oh, no, I've gone cross-eyed."

Basil: "I suggest you don't worry about those things and just enjoy yourself." (turns to camera): "That goes for you, too!"

Back to the Future

Before attempting to convince his father to accompany his mother to the upcoming local "rhythmic ceremonial ritual", Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) dressed in a radiation suit, wakes George (Crispin Glover) and introduces himself as "Darth Vader" - an extra-terrestrial from the planet Vulcan; the pronouncement closes as he gives the requisite Vulcan salute, a custom common to its people. In the deleted extended version Marty also mentions that the Supreme Klingon was ordering George to take the human unit known as Lauraine to the dance. The film starred Christopher Lloyd.

Batman: Mystery of the Batwoman

In this 2003 animated movie, Detective Bullock (voiced by Robert Costanzo) describes a plasma rifle as "Something out of Star Trek." Other voice actors include David Ogden Stiers and Timothy Dang.

Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey

Another film that parodies "Arena." While Bill and Ted are watching the episode, they are visited by their android duplicates (aka "evil robot us-es"). The androids drive them out to Vasquez Rocks, the location where "Arena" was filmed, and the ensuing sequence duplicates the camera angles and editing from the "Arena" scene Bill and Ted had just been watching.


While watching an episode of The Original Series with his girlfriend, Eddie Murphy's character, Marcus Graham, talks about how he is a Trekkie. In the discussion they talk about the fatality rate of the non-regular cast members on the away team. Later, Marcus Graham brags about how he knows everything about Star Trek. He mentions that he knows Kirk's first name, James T. Kirk and Spock's last name, Spock Jenkins, he is one of the Jenkins boys from Vulcan.

The Cable Guy

This dark comic film, released in 1996, stars Jim Carrey (see also: Star Trek parodies (television)#In Living Color) as a lonely, television-obsessed cable TV installer named "Chip Douglas". In the film, the fanatical Chip befriends Steven (played by Matthew Broderick), his latest "customer". In what is perhaps the most memorable scene in the film, Chip and Steven visit a Medieval Times restaurant, where they engage in a staged jousting and fighting tournament. During one of the fights, Chip begins to picture their fight as the battle between Jim Kirk and Spock in the TOS episode "Amok Time". He battles Steven – whom he refers to as "Jim" – while handling his pole-axe like a Vulcan lirpa and vocalizing the highly-recognizable music used during the "Amok Time" battle sequence. The real music from the episode begins playing in the background as Chip and Steven continue to duel. Also, on a list of Cable TV company employees, a Jean-Luc Picard is found.

For the record, Andy Dick portrays the Medieval Times host who assists the two combatants.

Canadian Bacon

Characters in this 1995 Michael Moore political satire mention Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan on a list of movies where "the black guy dies first". A TOS promotional photo of William Shatner can also be seen in a montage showing famous Canadians living in the United States.

Casper: A Spirited Beginning

The main character, Chris is a big sci-fi and space fan and has a lot of Star Trek memorabilia in his room, including a model kit of the original series Enterprise. His teacher, Ms. Fistergraff asks him if he likes Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan and he replies that it's his favorite one. (The film also features Michael McKean.)

Chicken Little

In the Hollywood version of the film about Chicken Little's life, Chicken Little has an appearance and mannerisms similar to James T. Kirk, with Abby Mallard in a role like that of Deanna Troi or Nyota Uhura, Fish Out of Water speaking in a role similar to Spock or Data, and Runt of the Litter having a similar appearance and mannerisms to Worf. Chicken Little's ship also resembles the redesigned Constitution class starship.

Chicken Run

When Mrs. Tweedy snags the airplane the chickens are in, the 'scottish' chicken calls out "We've picked up a cling-on, Captain." The scottish chicken also says "We're giving it all we've got."

Close Encounters of the Third Kind

The character of Roy Neary has a Klingon model hanging above his desk. Teri Garr had a leading role in the film.

The Coneheads

At the end of this film's teaser, a RADAR operator is watching "Arena" on television while the Coneheads' spaceship appears as a blip on the RADAR screen. The music cue from the "Arena" scene (a stock cue from Sol Kaplan's score to "The Enemy Within") segues into a similar melody in the film's score (by David Newman), leading into the main titles.


While discussing the design for a spaceship, one of the assistants comments that the ship should have photon torpedoes. Also, a UFO believer protester is holding a sign saying "Beam Me Up".

Crimson Tide

The 1995 submarine thriller starring Denzel Washington and Gene Hackman has multiple Star Trek references. When repairs on the ship's electronics are proceeding badly, the first officer of the damaged sub asks his sonar man if he has ever watched Star Trek and then tells him how Scotty always repaired everything and gave more power whenever the Klingons harassed them.

Cruel Intentions

The character Kathryn has the line "You'll be like Captain Picard. Boldly going where no man has gone before."

E.T.: The Extra-Terrestrial

Regrouping in a park after breaking free from containment and fleeing in a van, Greg (K.C. Martel), a friend of Elliot's (Henry Thomas), asks why can't E.T. "... just beam up?" to his spaceship.

E.T.'s spaceship seen in the beginning and climax of the film was designed by Ralph McQuarrie, conceptual designer for the aborted Star Trek: Planet of the Titans feature.

Its Oscar-winning sound effects editing was provided by Ben Burtt.

Star Trek: The Motion Picture effects alumni Douglas Trumbull and Richard Yuricich were once again recognized by the Academy with a nomination for Blade Runner, however Industrial Light & Magic won the Oscar that same year in the category of Best Visual Effects for this film.

Family Guy Presents Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story!

See Family Guy.


In this film mainly centering around Star Wars fans, Star Trek fans are depicted as a rival group, who often clash with the films protagonists.

In the scene in Riverside, Iowa, one of the protagonists fights with a Star Trek fan dressed up as a Vulcan in a manner reminiscent of the famous fight scene in "Amok Time", complete with calling "time out" in the moment T'Pau stopped the fight in the episode.

The two groups engage in various debates such as whether or not Darth Vader could take on the Borg Collective in a fight or who would win in a fight between Han Solo or James Kirk. Seth Rogan's character calls Han Solo a bitch, in reply of Jean-Luc Picard being called gay, and a large brawl ensues, ending in the large statue of Khan Noonien Singh and Kirk fighting (which actually doesn't resemble the characters at all, because of the fans fearing a possible lawsuit from Viacom) being destroyed as Seth Rogan loudly weezes "KHHHHAAAAN!!!". The group are later provided with vital blueprints of the Skywalker Ranch from William Shatner who claims he can get hold of anything, including Jeri Ryan's underwear.

Also in the DVD special features, two cast/crew members are seen play wrestling, where one will only release the other after he admits that he touches himself while watching Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

Tim Russ as an angry soldier

"Snotty" a parody of Scotty

The Mel Brooks film Spaceballs parodied several popular sci-fi movies including Star Wars, Star Trek, Alien, and Planet of the Apes.

Several moments of Trek-ness stand out in particular. First, there is a short scene with a Scottish engineer named "Snotty" (All-New Dating Game host Jeff MacGregor) whom Commanderette Zircon (played by future DS9 guest star Leslie Bevis) says "Snotty beamed me twice last night. It was wonderful." After Zircon suggests President Skroob be transported to the command deck, Skroob says "What the hell? It works on Star Trek." "Snotty" beams Skroob about fifteen feet into the next room only to find he has beamed the president's head on backwards. He manages to reverse the process and reassemble Skroob, who opts to WALK to the command deck, which is just outside his office.

The merchandising scene – which included Spaceballs: The Toilet Paper, Spaceballs: The Cereal, and Spaceballs: The Flame Thrower – was poking fun at the innumerable merchandising ventures made under the Trek brand, modeling its naming convention after Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

Later, Lonestar, the hero, attempts to do the Vulcan neck pinch unsuccessfully. The guard he's doing it to corrects him and he knocks the guard unconscious. He later performs the pinch on another guard after attacking him with shaving cream.

For the record, the film also features Tim Russ in one of his first screen roles as one of several Spaceball soldiers literally "combing the desert" (using ridiculously over-sized combs) for the escaped prisoners. When asked about his progress, Russ' character (who is using an over-sized Afro pick with another black Spaceball soldier) raises his helmet's visor and angrily responds "We ain't found shit!" Brenda Strong also appears as Dr. Schlotkin's nurse Gretchen, and Dey Young is one of the diner waitresses.

Star Warp'd

This claymation film parodies Star Trek, Star Wars, The Terminator, Robocop, E.T., Predator, Alien, and 2001, which features the Constitution-class refit USS Consolationprize, with Captain Kwirk, Mr. Spuck, Robofuzz, N.T. and Squatty, battling Dark Vapor and Mini-Maul on the Imperial Star Destroyer. Kwirk, Spuck and Squatty are wearing 2280s style uniforms with laser pistols from The Cage, The theme from Star Trek II is used throughout the movie, the theme music mixes the Star Wars theme and the Star Trek: The Next Generation theme together. In one scene, Kwirk yells, "KHAAAAAAAN!" before Spuck sends him flying to deactivate the magnet beam. And another, Spuck enters from the turbolift, wearing black Terminator's sunglasses, says, "Gas! Gas, captain. Whatever their designation is merely, foul-smelling gas." then Kwirk replies, "What about that extra equipment for cataloging gaseous anomalies. Guys! It's got to have a tail pipe" similar to the scene in Star Trek VI.

Star Wars films

Both the Trade Federation droid and Republic Clone Trooper armies have uniforms with yellow/gold, blue, and red "shoulders" marking different types of troops. The "red shoulder" droid troopers, in particular, are destroyed in vast numbers (the "command" droids have gold shoulders as well). The Trade Federation's name may have itself been a reference, as in Episode II, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Yoda refer to their vessels as "Federation Starships", while the word "starship" is rarely used in the Star Wars films. In Episode I, Qui-gon Jinn uses something similar to a Vulcan nerve pinch to subdue a panicky Jar-Jar Binks. He is then told by Obi-wan Kenobi that he "over did it."

Prior to supervising the visual effects for all of the Star Wars prequels, John Knoll acted as visual effects supervisor for Star Trek Generations and Star Trek: First Contact.

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith effects supervisor Roger Guyett assumed the role as supervisor for Star Trek.

Stay Tuned

This film features parodies of a large number of TV shows, and includes a scene in which John Ritter's character Roy Knable finds himself as Captain Jean-Luc Picard, sitting on a command chair on the bridge of the USS Enterprise-D. The scene features alternate versions of Data, Worf and Troi (all portrayed by Spike, the main villain, played by Jeffrey Jones), and concludes with Ritter exclaiming "Holy Shatner!"

This Ain't Star Trek XXX

Following the Sex Trek parodies, This Ain't Star Trek XXX is the tenth adult Star Trek parody. Written and directed by Axel Braun and co-written by Roger Krypton, it was released by Hustler Video on the 12th of May 2009, after the theatrical release of the 2009 Star Trek film. The film is a two-hour feature-length adult movie, professionally lit and filmed on sets, with uniforms that resemble those of Star Trek: The Original Series. The film follows closely the plot of TOS: "Space Seed", with references to TOS: "Amok Time" and TOS: "The Naked Time". There are also elements present from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country, TOS: "What Are Little Girls Made Of?", TOS: "Where No Man Has Gone Before", and TNG: "The Neutral Zone".


It is the 23rd century. The USS Enterprise is on a recon mission in the outskirts of the Neutral Zone, entering Sector 14. The ship is taking an elliptical course to avoid entering the Neutral Zone, even though a straight line would have accomplished this as well, as pointed out by Sulu. A distress signal, caused by a suspension capsule malfunction, is intercepted from an old Federation-type vessel, the mid-21st century ship, SS Botany Bay. Of the four passangers who have spent 200 years in the suspension capsules, two are alien females, a human male in the malfunctioning capsule and one who didn't survive. Spock is ordered stimulate the two females from stasis, while the male is transported aboard the Enterprise by Scotty. One of the female aliens, Ruth (wearing a uniform similar to the one worn by the android Andrea in "What Are Little Girls Made Of?"), states she had been dipped into venus fluid moments after her birth. She also stated being the most popular female alien in her fleet, and that her life's purpose is to pleasure men. The male wakes up in sickbay and states he is Commander Khan Noonien Singh of the SS Botany Bay. Kirk orders Lieutenant Marla McGivers to interrogate Khan. They meet him at his quarters on deck 4. After inviting him to dinner, Kirk leaves Lt. McGivers to make Khan feel at home. The second alien female, Chandra, is beamed aboard. She is a Vulcan, who is looking for Khan, warning that "the craving" has come aboard the Enterprise and that Khan is not what he appears to be. She claims to have the strain-B17 pon farr, that affects some females, to explain why she wants to have spontaneous sex with Kirk on the transporter pad. Khan wants to take control of the Enterprise, in order to take leadership of the galaxy. Khan orders the submissive McGivers to distribute the Psi 2000 virus to the ventilation of the ship. A virus that was eradicated centuries ago. Nurse Christine Chapel is infected, but Dr. McCoy remembers a study about the sudden release of endorphins to stimulate the production of antibodies to eradicate the virus. McCoy is also infected, but Chapel helps him cure himself. Khan knocks out Mr. Scott in the transporter room and uses the transporter to spread the virus to the entire ship. Uhura helps to cure Kirk on the bridge. Khan is defeated and demands to be beamed back to his ship, or he will slit MacGivers' throat. Scotty however uses pattern retrieval and Khan materializes back to the transported pad. Khan and MacGivers are taken to the nearest Federation detention center.

When a Senator learns that time travel is possible, he states "Well, beam me up, Scotty."

Toy Story

Toy Story, the first feature length CGI film, was made by Pixar and Disney. It is about a pull-string cowboy doll named Woody and a spaceman action figure named Buzz Lightyear in the world where toys come to life. In the back of Buzz's suit, a symbol resembles the Star Trek badge. Buzz Lightyear does his mission log similar to the captain's log. Buzz is stationed at the Gamma Quadrant in Sector 4, that reference is taken from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. In the fight of the gas station, Woody jumps on Buzz Lightyear the same way Admiral Kirk does at Commander Kruge from Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, Buzz does a Vulcan salute at Woody after the fight. At the commercial of the Buzz Lightyear action figure, there is a reference of the wrist communicator from Star Trek: The Motion Picture and as Buzz Lightyear fires lasers in the commercial, the laser sound is from Star Trek V: The Final Frontier when the Klingon Bird of Prey destroys God of Sha Ka Ree.

Before being spun off as Pixar, the Graphics Group of Lucasfilm's Computer Division created the Project Genesis demo seen in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

Toy Story 2

The sequel features a scene with the camera pulling back to reveal Buzz Lightyear put into a box on a toy store shelf, surrounded by multiply versions of himself in same boxes, a similar pull-back scene to that revealing the assimilated Captain Picard among thousands of Borg drones in the beginning "nightmare sequence" of Star Trek: First Contact. Later in the film, when the real Buzz says goodbye to the other Buzz he flashes the vulcan salute.

Also, at the beginning of the film, Gamma Quadrant is mentioned in the video game featuring Buzz.

Transformers (2007)

Written by Star Trek scribes Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman and featuring Glenn Morshower and Robert Foxworth, the Transformer called Bumblebee – who only communicates using recorded sounds and songs – can be heard relaying messages using sound clips of Uhura from Star Trek: The Original Series, using the lines "Message from Starfleet, captain" and the famous "Hailing frequencies open".

Although Orci and Kurtzman, both Star Trek fans, wrote the script for Transformers, Orci stated that the Uhura references were not in the script but were rather added during post-production. [1]

"Turkish Star Trek"

Captain Kirk

Spock and Turist Ömer

Turist Ömer Uzay Yolunda (literally translated, "Ömer the Tourist in Star Trek") is part of a Turkish series of comedy films focusing on a character called "Ömer the Tourist" who winds up in strange situations while traveling across Turkey. In this film, Ömer is beamed aboard the Enterprise – or a bad copy thereof, with an effeminate Kirk and a more-emotional-than-normal Spock – and winds up as part of The Original Series episode "The Man Trap" (but also with elements of "Amok Time" and "What Are Little Girls Made Of?"). The special effects are notable, as some of which are ripped directly from copies of classic Trek episodes.
