The Star Trek-Psy parody you know you wanted: Klingon Style

This was destined to happen, and it's all in Klingon. What better way to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Star Trek: The Next Generation and the internet, all at the same time? (video link) (via Comediva)


  1. Tangentially related—I never got the Klingon/Shakespeare thing. It seems like the central conflicts in most Shakespeare plays would be downright incomprehensible to a Klingon. Examples:

    King Lear: a monarch is torn by the decision of which of his bickering offspring should inherit his kingdom. (Klingon reaction: whichever one kills the other two. Duh!)

    Macbeth: a nobleman is torn by the decision to kill the king in order to ascend to the throne himself, and is subsequently overwhelmed with guilt as he tries to cover up the crime. (Klingon reaction: what crime? All hail King Macbeth!)

    Hamlet: a prince is torn by the decision of whether or not to avenge his father’s murder.  (Klingon reaction: I don’t even understand the question.)

    1. Maybe they really like his comedies? or maybe the dirty jokes that saturate shakespeare’s work translate better into Klingon than modern english?

      Honestly though, if I were going choose an ancient human story for a species of warrior culture aliens to adopt as their own, it would probably be the Illiad, battles, heroes, and tragedy, all wrapped up in a ten year long war, seems like everything they could want. They might side with the Trojans though, depending on their opinion of treachery as a legitimate tactic in war.

        1. When you get right down to it, wasn’t the horse that the Greeks used to infiltrate Troy basically just an early cloaking device?

          1. Kinda. They needed it, because those dishonourable Trojans hid behind walls. 

            You know why dishonour always fails? Because it it succeeds, no one dare call it dishonour.

  2. This is all my fault. I had avoided watching the original forever no matter how many people wanted me to watch it. Earlier this week I relented and gave it a watch. Then….this travesty was created.

    1. You just reminded me, I meant to get some friends together this weekend to do the “Star Wars” version. Thanks, Admiral!

  3. This is spectacular. I’ll admit I’ve watched it three times since it started hitting the science fiction sites this morning.

    Clicking around the group’s other videos, the “BAMF” ones are absolutely hilarious.

  4. Ugh! Nice concept but they were more concerned with keeping too close to the Psy video. His parody worked. This one does not. Please remake & use stronger Trekkie jokes. (On behalf of the Klingons, I’m offended.)

    1. His parody worked. This one does not. Please remake & use stronger Trekkie jokes.

      Why don’t you just post the one you made so we can compare the two?

  5. That was pretty good, but there is just something about the bobble head Bill Nye that generates a high level of LOL in me.
