(125) Retail Star Trek

125 Retail Star Trek is a live action silver age film by adult fans using green screens, costumes, and with much improved writing, acting, and film and audio quality when compared with their prior effort (Star Trek Roddenbury, discussed infra.).  It is described as a training video for a store, but I didn't see the training.  Instead, I saw a version of Trek Ayn Rand could love.

Centers on a member of the United Trade Federation (Federated Department Stores?).  Their rival space-faring retailer?  Wal-Mart!

Wal-Mart has stolen a prototype time travel device to become the dominant retailer in the Quadrant.  The United Trade Federation ship follows him back in time through his vortex (with footage taken from the movie, Star Trek: First Contact.)







These are the same people who created Star Trek Roddenberry, released in 2004, with some of the same actors.  They work out of Nottingham, UK.

This is the single episode of ST: Roddenberry, which ended, "To be continued..." but wasn't completed for 10 years:

Part 1 of 3 (2004): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWalhy63EgY  (5:21)  Remastered (January 9, 2015) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bCXxfTJ2Xrc (13:33)
Part 2 of 3 (2004)  : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XtalicR1xNE (7:28)  

Part 3 of 3 (2014):  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnDfsz1e1iU (8:52)
REVISE Part 3 of 3: (Jan 2015):  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rO3ss7_O5cQ (9:12)

Sound and video quality are pretty poor.  Ten years after the 2004 release of Parts 1 and 2, November 2014 saw it completed with Part 3.  Donald Leveratt and Robert Yates are the major movers.

In a PM dated February 17, 2012, Wardmarshall has had stated that he does not intend to continue either of these as a series, but might still create an ending to Star Trek Roddenberry.  Clearly, he did just that.

  1. on youtube the series is named "Roddenberry".
    not sure why you'd write "Roddenbury". maybe they changed the name?

    greetings, eMBee.

  2. I have to thank you YET AGAIN. This mistake has been on this website for at least 4 years, and no one had previously raised this to me. I believe I have now corrected it.
