'Star Trek' takes on 'Call Me Maybe'

Carly Rae Jepsen, meet Captain Picard

‘Star Trek’ takes on ‘Call Me Maybe’

Wild, right? That was all footage from the series Star Trek: The Next Generation (supplemented with snippets from the film Star Trek: First Contact). I think I saw Scotty from the original series, and Whoopi Goldberg as Guinan and even James Cromwell piloting some craft or other.

There were Ferengi and Klingons and … wait a minute, wasn’t this the series that introduced that evil invasive alien species, the Kardashians? Oh, it was the Cardashians? Never mind.

Zyphorg, the You Tube handle for the fanatic who put this clip together, says it took him only a week. But there are rumors he has 12 arms.
