Did You Know?


The registration of the ship parked in the "handicapped" space is actually the Finnish registration of director of photography Sami Aho-Mantila's 1989 Ford Fiesta. See more »


In the beginning, when Dwarf looks at Pirk's magazine, the magazine title says "Tiede"; when it's on table, it's "Tiedä". (Tiede is an actual Finnish monthly science magazine, and "Tiedä" would be a spoof of it.) See more »


[subtitled version]
Info: [to Commander Dwarf] Whatever you may think, the VCR remote stop button doesn't harm me.

All hail emperor Pirk!
17 September 2005 | by arlagareSee all my reviews

I was very eager when I sat down to watch the movie, did it meet it's expectations or not? Well I'm eased to say it did, and with a long shot as well. The whole world domination thing with a comedical straw is brilliant and a bit goofy (as it should be). Well, what you say, be proud Finland, a very good comedy-parody production of a well known sci-fi series. And I'm sure both you and me sometimes had wondered what would happen if the time directive would have been broken, well you have the answer just right here :). Summary: A very well made Finnish movie that makes a laugh out of both the Babylon and the star trek series with a success. The special effects are good for a movie in this class, and the acting is very well done good as well. The whole making fun of the emperor thing is brilliant, and the relates to the time directive is good as well. The jokes are funny as well, so I enjoyed this movie very much and recommend it for every star trek and babylon5 fan out there. I give this 10/10 for as this isn't the ordinary Hollywood production and very much deserve it. Thank you Finland !
