This film is hysterical. I laughed the entire way through.

As a die hard scifi fan I thought this would be terrible. I think it was actually better than quite a few major productions. The special effects definately give a lot of major productions a run for there money.

If you have a sense of humour, loved films like galaxy quest, babylon 5 and startrek, you will love this.

Just watch it and laugh! I'm a diehard Star Trek fan and this film has everything that makes Star Trek great! The storyline is a little weird at the beginning but everything falls into place at the end; oh and watching the International Space Station get blown up by 3 `Light balls/Photon Torpedos' is something more films should have!

One reviewer mentions how an incredible amount of bear must have been involved in the making of the film and they are right but not for the wrong reasons. The light hearted fun (and use of `Light beer' in the `Light balls') coupled with watching the film in a foreign language (with UK subtitles) makes for a crazy night in.

I can understand that for some viewers the unrefined humour wont appeal to them but for anyone who has seen at least one naked gun film (and liked it) should watch this to!

If you're not familiar with both Star Trek and Babylon 5 you'll miss a lot of the references in this. But if you are, and you've ever wanted to see them fight, you have to see this!
Was OK at the start, but once they got into space it really took off.
While the scenes with people show their low budget origins, the space scenes are excellent (better than Babylon 5's) - considering that they didn't come from a major studio I was astonished.
Generally quite funny.
In my opinion wouldn't be quite so good for someone who wasn't a B5 & Star Trek fan.

I've only seen the original movie, not the new Edition (in the original they just used real Babylon 5 / Star Trek Models instead of their modified ones).

I think this movie is great. Many people say, because of it being a low-budget production and having not as good a script as other movies (Spaceballs, Galaxy Quest, etc.) it's not worth watching, but I totaly disagree. Yes, it is a low-budget production, but does that make every movie a bad movie? The special effects can compare to every other movie made back then and are pretty damn good for a low budget production.

The jokes are funny (although that's just my subjective view), the plot is original and I really enjoyed watching a parody of Babylon 5, since there are no other.

After reading some comments here I just don't get why people are so annoyed by watching a movie in a foreign language. English is NOT the only language there is and there are many good non-english movies out there! But for those who don't get that: don't buy this movie, look for something like Transformers, you will have no trouble understanding that!

Normally I would rate this movie 4/5, but since it was made under these circumstances, I give it the relative mark: 5/5!

Excellent low-budget comedy science fiction. The space-battle effects however still put many big-budget films to shame.

If you are a fan of Babylon 5 and Star Trek with a sense of humour you should love it - and when I say fan, I mean someone who enjoyed watching them, not some Obsessive Compulsive spod who has a toilet shaped like the Captain's chair, thinks its all real and can draw blueprints of the Enterprise from memory....

Its a Dark Star for the 21st Century and proves that money doesn't make a film (just look at Kingdom of the Crystal Skulls...*shudder*)

And to those who gave one star-ratings because of the subtitles; perhaps you should have stayed in school long enough to learn to read?
Good God, I'm waiting for someone to complain that it's in widescreen because "it wasted half the television screen with black bars on my old telly"
Just you wait.

Much much better than I expected. This is a brilliant parody of both Star Trek and Babylon 5. Fans of both shows will love it.

For me , the Babylon 5 elements were the most effective. Watching the antics of Sherrypie, Garybrandy, Ivanovitsa and Festerbester made me truly nostalgic for that great departed show. Loved the hand communicators and the Vorlon is hilarious. Check out also the subtitles for "Scotty!"

.
When I first heard of Star Wreck I was not initially impressed by tales of a fan-made tribute.
The first time I saw Star Wreck I have to confess that I was definitely, and significantly, drunk, and thought it was <r@p.
The first time I saw Star Wreck sober I was stunned.
The home-made sets very strongly resembled 1940's Flash Gordon-style but everything else was, and is, SILLY but SUPERB.

Score out of 10 - a ludicrous but well-deserved 14.
Regards,
Kenn.

this was great, a star vtrek parody that picks on a lot of the little things about the show, which when listening to the commentary i learned just how "nerdy" the makers of this were. It also crosses over with babylon 5 which i didn't know much about but that didn't matter as it was still humorous. The story is the follow on from a previous short film which can be seen on youtube and is technically star wreck 6, though this is irrelevant to my review. The commentary gives interesting facts and trivia from the makers and is in english compared to the film (subtitles but that doesn't detract from it being a good spoof)
I would recommend for sci-fi fans and possibly non sci-fi fans as it doesn't require you to get too absorbed in it to bee able to follow
