The lighter side of TREK...
Over the years many have tried their hands at parodies or comedic versions of trek story lines and its characters. With the exception of a few SNL skits and some MAD magazine parodies most of them have been terrible.
A few years ago G4 began airing episodes of the original Star Trek and in order to promote this they came up with one of the funniest and most clever ad campaigns I have seen in years.
These commercials were actually very funny and some of the few examples of funny characterizations of the trek personas. These spots pack more laughs than most episodes of Robot Chicken. Here they are in all their glory including an extended version of Star Trek cribs.
