Turkish Star Trek @ The Alamo Drafthouse Theater in Katy

A Turkish Star Trek. This has got to be seen to be believed.
In the early 1970s, Turkish filmmakers decided that they wanted to make lots of money. In order to ingratiate themselves with an audience that was already familiar with their subject matter, these filmmakers studied popular American films. Then they said: "We can do this much better." And so, a mass surge of the most insane and hilarious rip-offs in the history of movies began. The Turks were not afraid to utilize footage, music, and sound effects from other movies. They were also not afraid to make a movie that featured Spider-man as a serial killer.

TURKISH STAR TREK "re-imagines" three episodes of the original STAR TREK series ("Man Trap," "Amok Time," "Tomorrow Is Yesterday") while adding a subplot about a time-traveling comedian. It was the first full-length TREK movie ever produced in the world. To this day, it is also the best. If you don't believe us, believe Mr. Silphatos, a fan from Istanbul, Turkey:

"In my opinion this movie had been the best science fiction film at Turkey. I can't remember that how many time I have watched this film. Also STAR TREK theme helped film to reach its watcher. Mr. Spak was absolutely well, Turist had slacked off him by the way of computers and words. In one part of the film he asked for lotto numbers to computer and breaked down it, these are amazingly funny. I said that this is the best. I love that. So Give you a change to watch this film; then you are glad to be." (Joseph A. Ziemba)

      MST3K bait: "all we could afford was a cheap projector screen instead of the NCC main viewer..."
