…is one of the most underrated movies ever. On the surface it’s witty satire about Star Trek and its fandom.
Beneath that superficial layer it’s a film about nerds by nerds for nerds. And its commentary on nerd culture is so thorough and accurate that it’s awesome. Granted, I don’t think it…
why does nobody on tumblr talk about this movie?
I mean seriously:
“The alumni cast of a cult space TV show have to play their roles as the real thing when an alien race needs their help”
It’s a Star Trek spoof where the actors get sucked into a real space battle.
It has Tim Allen (Buzz Lightyear, Santa Claus, and Tim Taylor of Tool Time), Sigourney Weaver (Dana Barrett from Ghostbusters, and Ellen fucking Ripley from Alien), and Alan Rickman (SEVERUS SNAPE) playing the Kirk, Uhura, and Spock roles
Sigourney had lines like:
“Well, Alex, at least you had a part, okay? You had a character people loved! I mean, my TV Guide interview was six paragraphs about my boobs and how they fit into my suit. No one even bothered to ask me what I DO on the show.”
“Look, I have one job on this lousy ship. It’s stupid, but I’m gonna do it, OKAY?”
which spoke directly to how ridiculously sexist so many female roles on TV (especially shows that can get away with throwing their female characters into skin-tight suits) are written, and also perceived by the fanbase.
Alan Rickman plays a character who is pretty much 900% done the entire way through the movie, and still managed to give me massive amounts of feels.
Tony Shalhoub (Monk) plays a perpetually stoned Scotty character who falls for a hot alien chick. Yes, there is interspecies romance in this movie.
Yup, an interspecies couple where the chick has tentacles and the guy is really into it.
The villain is played/voiced by Robin Sachs (Ethen Rayne from Buffy)
Sam Rockwell (we know him as Justin Hammer from Iron Man 2) plays an extra.
One of the awesome aliens is played by Enrico Colantoni (Veronica Mars’s dad)
back when he was this cutie
The above cutie is Justin Long (star in another all time favorite movie of mine, Accepted) who plays one member of a group of fans who analyze the show like we do with our shows, and ends up saving the fucking day because they analyzed everything so well.
This movie is about fans saving the actors when the show turns out to be real.
If you haven’t seen it…
Go watch it.
So heres a portrait of Lydia Martin/Holland Roden which i livestreamed yesterday, took me approximately 10 hours and Im so happy with it!

When did I start saying “oh good it’s only 12:30” on school nights
one time i saw someone skipping rocks and eating a sandwich along the beach and idk he just tossed his sandwich in the water and bit the rock and he just stiffened a bit but i saw him dying inside after realizing what had just happened
You don’t even need to ask what show this relates to.
God I didn’t even realize until I read the caption that it didn’t say.
now hold on just a diddly-darn minute
If I was an author, I’d go into bookstores and find the shelf with my books, randomly sign one, and put it back on the shelf to be sold.
the worst thing about being shy and introverted is that you most of the time come off as cold and arrogant like you think you’re better than everyone else and thats why you don’t talk to people or hang out with them but it’s really the opposite its like you’re so uncomfortable with yourself that you don’t wanna share it with anyone else so you just dont and people think you’re an asshole but you’re actually just really scared
I love how sometimes John Green’s like
and at other times, he’s like
