Star Wreck: In The Pirkinning

After hearing all the buzz, I finally broke down and ordered a DVD copy of Star Wreck: In The Pirkinning.

For those of you not familiar, Star Wreck is a Finnish parody of Star Trek. In The Pirkinning, which took a few years to complete, tells the story of what happens when the Trek and Babylon 5 universes collide.

This film is subtitled, which is fine (I've watched countless samurai and anime films to start complaining now). In this case, the translation is hilarious: worm holes are now maggot holes, warp (as in the warp drive) is called twist, phasers and photons are twinklers and light balls.

In some odd way, both universes are represented fairly (albeit humorously).
