Steam Trek: The Moving Picture (Star Trek Parody)

Given the importance that it played in my life growing up, it is hard to resist a Steampunk inspired "Star Trek" parody.

Wikipedia says of "Steampunk" that it is

subgenre of fantasy and speculative fiction which came into prominence in the 1980s and early 1990s. The term denotes works set in an era or world where steam power is still widely used—usually the 19th century, and often set in Victorian era England—but with prominent elements of either science fiction or fantasy, such as fictional technological inventions like those found in the works of H. G. Wells, or real technological developments like the computer occurring at an earlier date. It is often associated with cyberpunk and shares a similar fanbase and theme of rebellion, but developed as a separate movement (though both have considerable influence on each other). Apart from time period, the main difference between cyberpunk and steampunk is that steampunk settings tend to be less obviously dystopian.

So, I present to you without further delay, "Steam Trek"!

In Christ,
