“Star Tract” is a low-budget parody of Star Trek (the original series) in which Kirk, Spock, and Scotty roam the universe in search of godless heathens to convert to the Gospel. It’s harmless and thoroughly non-crazy but also mightily amateurish.
The primary mode of “Star Tract” is, thankfully, comedic. The actor playing Kirk reads ... every ... LINE ... in ... the ... classic… patented ... Shatner parodic fashion in which seemingly every syllable is enunciated all on its lonesome. Spock works the word logically into every sentence, and Scotty’s main traits are that he is clumsy and Hispanic.
Two episodes are available online. The first one focuses on 1 Corinthians 1:27 and uses Scotty’s incessant klutziness as an occasion to reflect on the counterintuitive methods of the Godhead; in the second episode, “Captain Kirk and crew man #37 head to planet Moy Moy and learn about having the mind of Christ” and the key texts are 1 Corinthians 2:12 and 2:16. In case you were wondering, the denizens of Moy Moy talk like Keanu Reeves in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure.
The two videos were uploaded in 2009 and I’d also guess (based on a throwaway reference to XBox) that that’s about when they were filmed, as well.
Below, watch the two episodes of “Star Tract”:
