Kirk and the Gorn duet in Star Trek: The Middle School Musical

Looking for an antidote to J.J. Abrams' slick, lens-flared vision of Star Trek? The Mythical Show with Rhett and Link gives us a Star Trek that doesn't even begin to take itself seriously, right down to its singing all-child cast.

Star Trek: The Middle School Musical could have used a dose of Sulu, but the slow-mo battle love song between Kirk and the Gorn is pretty great. Next step: stage different Trek musical adaptations across the country with real middle schools classes. I can't wait to see a 12-year-old sing about the pathos of being a red shirt.
