I love this dumb movie, and I had vague thoughts about how much it parallels the under-appreciated by wonderful Star Trek III. Those thoughts are not in this vid explicitly because making this vid took an unexpected amount of time, what with one thing and another, including politics. But they do underlie it (if you liked this movie, you should go rewatch Star Trek III, because there are a lot of parallels and also STIII is delightful) in various ways. 

Other than that, it does (I hope) what it says on the tin. The technical process was a bit nightmarish this time around, not helped by jetlag; I was about 1/3 of the way through clipping a 720p release when I freaked out about clip quality and decided I needed to use 1280. (Also, my video card is slowly dying.) I was about 80% of the way through reclipping before I realized that I could just use the existing clips and only redo whatever I wound up actually using in the vid. Then I wound up using quite a few bits from clips I hadn't redone because that section was the part where the Enterprise crashes on the planet. Whoops. My outlining process also failed me, because I hadn't written down my initial thoughts when I'd had them last summer, so I only had vague notions when I got to actually vidding, and I wound up obsessively recutting the first section before I found a rhythm I liked. The real breakthrough came when I did the stutter cuts on the first chorus. Thanks Kesha.

Oh my world, what is it with Kesha and Star Trek (both TOS and AOS) that they go so well together! I loved the Spock & McCoy interactions in both Star Trek III and Star Trek Beyond. This vid is so fun and it just makes me want to dance my butt off, and it is a great overview of the film as whole. <3

Thanks for the download! This is so much fun, the clip choices always make me smile.

Sorry to hear that the process was particularly hard! If it makes you feel better, I ended up re-doing one of my vids for the exchange with better quality footage as well (thankfully it was quite a short vid so it didn't take too long).
