One of the best (and strangest) of the Star Trek spoofs
4 December 2006 | by NavyOrionSee all my reviews

It's scary to think that this movie is considered by some to be "a masterpiece among Turkish movies"; that says a lot more about the state of Turkish cinema than I'd care to know. But the film, more commonly known as "Turkish Star Trek" in English-speaking countries, is one of the most enjoyable of the many Star Trek spoofs in circulation.

The viewer is treated to an outsider's view of the Star Trek universe, as a Turkish slapstick comedian (Turist Ömer) escapes a shotgun wedding thanks to the timely intervention of the starship Enterprise. Borrowing shamelessly from several classic Star Trek episodes (particularly Star Trek's first broadcast episode "The Man Trap") an ability to speak Turkish is not necessary for Star Trek fans to be able to follow the plot, although it may well baffle non-Trekkies. In fact, picking out the various homages (and deciding which characters are being depicted by the actors) may well be one of the most enjoyable aspects.

Interspersed with the familiar scenes are more bizarre sequences, involving a mad scientist (a dead ringer for Alfred Ryder, who played Dr. Crater in "The Man Trap"), as well robots in loincloths, bikini-clad alien girls, and some of the most hilariously bad pre-digital special effects ever committed to film.

It is probable that the dialog makes some sense of the goings-on, but until a subtitled version emerges (don't hold your breath), you're better off to just sit back with some wise-cracking buddies, pass the Romulan ale, and enjoy the show.
