Trivia

When dedicating the statue of Captain Kirk versus Khan, Linus (Chris Marquette) jokes that it looks nothing like either of them, to which Admiral Seasholtz (Seth Rogen) states "Yes, thank you for pointing that out. Unfortunately the whores at Viacom threatened to sue, if we used their likenesses." This is an in-joke, due to the fact that none of the "Trekkies" wear official Star Trek clothing, and the Starfleet symbol looks nothing like the one from Star Trek. See more »

Goofs

Quite a lot of the merchandise displayed in the movie was not released in 1998. Most noticeably the Master Replica Force FX Sabers (2005) throughout the movie (held by the Darth Vader statue, used by fans in the theatre), and the 12" Taun Taun in the 2002 "Saga" collection packaging in Eric's bedroom.

Just Plain Fun
16 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you grew up on Star Wars and Star Trek, especially with those who were in love with either series, this movie is the bomb.

This fun romp makes fun of both series and has surprisingly great cameos, which I won't name. I will watch this again. Some movies are timeless in the way you can run into it on cable and will stay for a bit...that is this movie. The actors throughout the movie are from the genre we expect. Cameos and more cameos are numerous. Watch out for a gross hospital kiss, but I'm not giving anything away.

The cast is perfect for this performance. You'll feel for them.

Great job!
