Found Star Trek Footage (Video)

I don’t know about you guys but I was a big Trekkie when I was a kid. My Dad and I would watch Star Trek: The Next Generation religiously each week. Those were some great memories, but I didn’t really carry my enthusiasm for Star Trek into my adult years. Don’t get me wrong I am still a fan of The Star Trek Universe but not really a big fan of the movies or later series. Anyways, I remember wanting to visit the studio set so bad as a kid and got close when I was able to go to the “Star Trek: The Experience” that was in Vegas for a short while.

I think it’s pretty much safe to say that I have been a Nerd all my life. However, the guys in this video take Nerdism to a whole new level. Apparently this video was shot in 1988 by a couple of goofs who must have thought they were a daring Away Team exploring an uncharted planet. the story goes that these two super fans broke into the Paramount lot where the sets from Star Trek: The Next Generation were housed to shoot some sort of amateur documentary. One of them is even wearing his own Star Fleet uniform. The video is complete with terrible camera work, even worse dialog, and is topped off with them getting busted by security and running off without their camera. Seems like a waste of a trip but here is the footage some 26 years later for us to enjoy.

I can’t say I watched the entire thing (mainly because it’s over a half hour long) but what I did see was actually pretty cool even if it was really low resolution. It’s just kind of cool to see the set back when it was actually being used for the show.  Anyways, check out the video for an interesting look behind the scenes of Star Trek: The Next Generation even if only to laugh at the two guys in it.
