(96) Star Track

This large Comedy/Parody group has produced over 20 episodes.  The basic show is a spoof on TNG, but with an action/adventure element. It is allied with another independent group, which is producing Star Track: The Metric System,  another series set in the Star Track universe. Star Track: Idomo is clearly spoofing the crew of The Next Generation, and based on that,  I am placing it here.  Produced in Montreal, Canada, The thing that struck me about the episodes I watched to place this blog was that this show is so distinctively Canadian... there is an admixture of French, and a general sense that the producers well understand the difficulties of sleeping in the same bed as an elephant.  Because drunkenness on the job is treated as amusing, and other issues, I would rate this PG-13 or above.

NEW SERIES; DAMN KLINGONS... bottom of this page!

This is their You Tube home:
This is their Vimeo home:
These are their Facebook homes:

These first episodes are posted with a warning that they are not well done.  They are entitled simply, "Star Track"  at the website.  All episodes are characterized as "Star Track, the Next Hesitation" at the You Tube home.  The last few episodes (I have not watched the early shows) are distinctive for many reasons, not the least of which is the coherent story lines, sometimes more coherent than some of the dramas.  These are comedies which also tell a real story.  Star Track exists in a universe as distinct from the Star Trek universe as the mirror universe... or our own.  It therefore cannot be judged for consistency with anything but itself.
