Make It So
by Rick Moyer

Make it so

Original song written and recorded by Rick Moyer

Imagine my thrill when on my TV
Star Trek was coming back and it would be weekly!
This time they would have a whole new crew
The sky was the limit on the things they would do

 With a bald headed captain Who loved Shakespeare
And quirky first officer with a solid career
The security chick with a green uniform on
And later on replaced by a butt head Klingon

Chorus

They say all good things must come to and end
But when it was over I lost a best friend
A comfort to watch seven years in a row
And week after week we would make it so

Make it so

 A cosmic cheerleader that could read our mind
A Doctor with hair that changed color all of the time
The engineer that wore a barrette on his eyes
And a boy wonder that would save all our lives

 An android  Pinocchio with Robot like distractions
Longing to be human but can’t use a  contraction
An Irish chief that keeps the transporter a flyin’
With Keico and Molly the family Obrien

 They say all good things must come to and end
But when it was over I lost a best friend
A comfort to watch seven years in a row
And week after week we would make it so

Make it so

 The villains each week were a must see to
From Romulans, Ferangis and the ultimate Q
Cardassians, Shelliack, whatever they were on
Resistance was futile To the Borg automaton

 The ship was run tight with Jean Luc at the head
And every single officer did just what he said
Like a family in space we would watch them every week
To uphold the prime directive and new life to seek

 So thanks for your friendship Captain Jean Luc Picard
Give my best to Riker and the crew that you Guard
What a cool old ship the  Enterprise D
You were the best television a person could see

Goodbye Dr. Beverly, Data and Yar
Deanna, Wesley & Worf in the 10 forward bar
Geordie keep her running, Rodenberry’s creation
Cause now that it’s over I miss the next Generation

They say all good things must come to and end
But when it was over I lost a best friend
A comfort to watch seven years in a row
And week after week we would make it so

 

We would make it so

When Data was linked up by Geordie

When Data was linked up by Geordie

Fist Full of Data’s is such a great episode of Star Trek TNG.  Not only do we get to see the “Ancient West” but Worf as a sherrif!  Fantastic!  Watch out, there’s trouble in the Holodeck sub routines!

When Data was linked up by Geordie
A parody of Charlie Daniel’s “The devil went down to Georgia”
Lyrics by Rick Moyer, sung by Rick Moyer

When Data was linked up by Geordie they were looking for a back up live
He would be used, neural network fused a fancy space hard drive
When Worf barges in to the captains room and tries to make work a lot
And the captain put his flute on down and said Worf let me tell you what:
It’s time for a vacation, I know you need one too
So stop your work, quit being a jerk, boy   don’t make me order you
Now you work hard like a warrior boy, but you live with someone else too
I’ll bet a fella not old, against your code, wants to spend time with you

The boy said, I’ve got it all planned out, with Barklay it might be a wreck
Let’s see who we arrest in the Ancient West on the Enterprises  Holodeck

Data link your neural net and Geordie tell Picard
The system has been overloaded Data’s speaking bizarre
And if we turn the holdeck off, before the stories done
But then we lose the Father and the son….

Sheriff Worf got his first case and said “your coming with me you know”
And Eli knew what he was gonna do said “better let me go”
He smirked at them in his jail cell and said with an evil hiss
My Pa will be joined by a band of thugs and they’ll all  sound something like this

In the local saloon Senior Frank he said, Sheriff give me back my son
Worf says no, but where’d his deputy go? The kidnap has been done

Problem in the core, of the main machine
trouble in the holodeck sub routine
Data’s showin up as the characters too
Can we fix the program, what do we do?

Counselor Darango helps Sheriff Worf make a little trade
Meeting in the street, it was really neat he wasn’t even afraid
Turning on his shield he saves the day and says’ never come back now get”
Miss Annie  hugs Worf and the Enterprise flies off into the sunset.

Problem in the core, of the main machine
trouble in the holodeck sub routine
Data’s showin up as the characters too
Can we fix the program, what do we do?

Enterprise

Author: moyer777  //  Category: Science Fiction Songs, songs, Star Trek Parodies, TNG, Uncategorized

My friend Brett Hammond suggested that I use the song “Fireflies” by Owl City to do a parody, well.. here is his wish. My son Nathan is into all this auto tuning stuff, so I let him sing on it and I wrote the lyrics. ENJOY! It’s about the Episode of Star Trek TNG called “Conspiracy”

ENTERPRISE
to the tune of Owl City’s “Fireflies”

Conspiracy on Enterprise
Is that the way it flies?
A message sent from Walker Keel

Priority message see
To meet up on Dytalix B
The captains gather
In a old mining ….shaft

I’d like to fly back soon you see
TO planet Earth …warp three
It’s hard to say what’s going on
In Star Fleet
Cause everything is messed up it seems

Cause I saw a thousand bugs
When the admirals turned into thugs
As they tried to get me to eat their food

Riker he acted instead
A fake tail out of his head
He fooled them all and he shot some dead

I’d like to fly back soon you see
To planet Earth please …warp three
It’s hard to say what’s going on
In Star Fleet
Cause everything is messed up it seems
When I dig deep
We could be under alien attack
(Please take me away from here)
We’ll have to take the planet back
(Please take me away from here)
We can’t let their message reach deep space
(Please take me away from here)
The crew will rescue Earth and save face

Back on the Enterprise
Quinn tries to fool those guys
Kicks Warf’s butt, but then he fell
The bugs are in Remick still
Jean Luc and Riker’s Kill
A meat puppet the aliens they fill

I’d like to fly back soon you see
To planet Earth please …warp three
It’s hard to say what’s going on
In Star Fleet
Cause everything is messed up it seems
When I dig deep

I’d like to fly back soon you see
TO planet Earth please …warp three
It’s hard to say what’s going on
In Star Fleet
Cause everything is messed up it seems
When I dig deep

I’d like to fly back soon you see
TO planet Earth please …warp three
It’s hard to say what’s going on
In Star Fleet
But I think it’s a conspiracy

My Bajoran

My Bajoran



The Knack was able to implant the riff to “My Sharona” into our brains after the first listen. I couldn’t resist doing a parody of Ensing Ro Larin of TNG’s Star Trek. It was a great episode, and now it’s a fun geeky song. ENJOY!

My Bajoran
Lyrics and sung By Rick Moyer
(clip)
Ooh my little wrinkle nose, wrinkle nose
When you gonna go back to jail Bajoran?
Ooh you beam on down, beam on down
‘splain it all to the captain Bajoran..
Never gonna stop, give it up
Such a snarky tude,
Head band with the hair so short
Always in awful mood
My, My, my I yi woo, M M M M My Bajoran
Your first name is the last, is the last
When you gonna give me a smile Bajoran?
Oh you’re just an Ensign hon, an ensign hon
On a Starfleet mission  Oh Ro Larin
Oh they let you out, for a bit, that’s the plan
Admiral got you settin up for  the Cardassian
My my my I  yi woo, M M M M M My Bajoran
(clip)

Guinan she’s a friend to you, a friend to you
Got you tight with Jean Luc -Bajoran
Orta lets you have ship, have a ship
Fool em with a sub light ruse Bajoran
Admiral’s got a cold, oh so I’m told,
Dancin’ diplomats not here
Way to jump your career
My, My, my I yi woo, M M M M My Bajoran
(repeat)
(clips)

Rooooo  My Bajoran
Rooooo Oh Ro Larin
Rooooo My Bajoran

Just what we needed

Author: moyer777  //  Category: Science Fiction Songs, songs, Star Trek Parodies, TNG

As a kid growing up in the 80’s I had all of The Cars albums. I just loved them. So when Rico decided to cover the TNG episode of The Most Toys, I just couldn’t resist. It’s my all time favorite Star Trek Next Generation episode. So I took that line that Riker says to Kivas Fajo, that the Enterprise was sure fortunate that Kivas had just enough Hytridium. I know, this is really geeky, but oh so fun! Thus, Just what we needed was born. Enjoy!

“You had just what we needed”
by Rick Moyer
Parody of The Cars song “Just what I needed”

The Enterprise is coming near
There’s not a lot of time
Tricyanide is causing fear
It’s upfront in our minds

We’re glad you have Hytridium
it’s volatile and rare
And I don’t mind you coming here
You got here just in time

I don’t mind your shuttle craft
The cargo Data gets
But on the final trip and back
It appears he blows to bits!  Yeah
We can’t believe our eyes just now
Our sensor readings on just how
The mystery just deepens here
Kivas Fajo’s just in time

I guess you had what  we needed
(just what I needed)
On Beta Agna Two
I guess you had what we needed
(just what I needed)
and just enough for us too.

You kidnapped Data with no tact
In a chair you want his pose,  pose
Surrounded by the artifacts
Scent of gum it’s in his nose, yeah
It’s not the clothes he wants to wear
It’s Varria that starts to care
A Varon T disruptor here
She’s shot and disappears

I guess you had what  we needed
(just what I needed)
On Beta Agna Two
I guess you had what we needed
(just what I needed)
and just enough for us too.

I guess you had what  we needed
(just what I needed)
On Beta Agna Two
I guess you had what we needed
(just what I needed)
and just enough for us too.

I guess you had what  we needed
(just what I needed)
On Beta Agna Two
I guess you had what we needed
(just what I needed)
and just enough for us too.

Elephants in the Ready Room

Author: moyer777  //  Category: Science Fiction Songs, songs, Star Trek Parodies, TNG

 

Chain of Command is a two part episode of Star Trek The Next Generation. I really dig that episode where Captain Picard is replaced by Captain Jellico. At one point during the show Counselor Troi visits with the captain as he shares pictures from home. One is a little stick figure drawing of an elephant. I just couldn’t resist, and thus “Elephants in the Ready Room was born to the tune of Smokin in the boys room. Enjoy!

Elephants in the Ready Room
to the tune of Smokin in the boys room
By Rick Moyer

(Spoken)
How you doin out there?  Y’ever seem to have one of those days
where it just seems like transmissions from a Cardasia say they are making biological weapons of mass destruction?
Well you know, it’s just run of the mill stuff in the federation, but get this the Enterprise has a new captain and it’s no fun, let me tell you about it.

(Sung)

Pickin up emissions, on the world Celtris 3
Picard Crusher and Warf book passage to see
Federation sends a guy Jellico’s his name
Tries to be the captain but drives everyone insane

Elephants in the Ready Room
Elephants in the Ready Room
Now, Jelico, don’t keep treatin number one like a fool,
Cause everybody knows that Jean Luc is way more cool.

A-checkin out a planet, the captain taken for sure
Strip him of his clothes, and Gul Madread torture
Back on the enterprise things are rather tense
Deanna wearing a uniform and four shifts are quite immense

Elephants in the Ready Room
yeah
Elephants in the Ready Room
Now, Jelico, don’t keep treatin number one like a fool,
Cause everybody knows that Jean Luc is way more cool.

(Clips from episode)

Give picard injections just to tell the truth
but defense of Minos Korva still remains aloof
Makin him all crazy by brainwashing into the night
Finally in the end the captain screams there are FOUR LIGHTS!

Elephants in the Ready Room
yes indeed
Elephants in the Ready Room
Now, Jelico, don’t keep treatin number one like a fool,
Cause everybody knows that Jean Luc is way more cool.
One mo!

Elephants in the Ready Room
oh oh.
Elephants in the Ready Room
Now, Jelico, don’t keep treatin number one like a fool,
Cause everbody knows that Jean Luc is way more cool.

Give him back the Enterprise would ya?

That thing with Q

Author: moyer777  //  Category: Science Fiction Songs, songs, Star Trek Parodies, TNG

Qpid is one of my favorite TNG episodes. This is where Picard is dressed in Robin Hood clothes and has to rescue his love from the castle before she is married to Sir Guy. So I took the song “That thing you do” and wrote it from Picard’s point of view and thus “That thing with Q” was born. ENJOY!

That thing with Q

You
Doin’ that thing with Q
Orbiting like your eyes, I’m gonna speak now
To some archaeologist guys

And Q,
He kidnapped all the crew,
He knew that I liked you, to hold you oh Vash
I’m  in love with you
Well I try and try to forget you girl,
And I don’t share with the crew,
Every time you do that thing with Q

I,
Robin Hood I’m forced to play
And I’ve got to find a way, to get you back from Sir Guy
You’ll be mine someday
‘Cause we,
Are in Q’s fantasy
If you’d only let me come to rescue you
Take you back in space with me

‘Cause I try and try to forget you girl,
Yet I don’t share with the crew
Every time you do that thing with Q

I don’t ask a lot girl,
But I know one thing’s for sure,
I won’t let you be beheaded
And my friends will help me a whole lot more…
whhhhhhaaaa!

‘Cause we,
Might be orbiting Tagus Three
But were in Sherwood forest together with my crew
Vash I need to be with you

Cause it hurts me so just to see you go,
Around with pompous Q,
And if I know you you’re doin’ that thing,
Every day just doin’ that thing,
I can’t take you doing that thing with Q

Help Tom

Help Tom

http://www.takehimwithyou.com/songs/helptom.mp3


This week Rico covered the TNG episode “Second Chances” the one where unbeknown to Riker he was split in two eight years prior in a transporter and atmospheric accident. Well, I love the Beatles, and I love Star Trek.. so here you go. HELP!

HELP TOM
a parody of Help by the Beatles
sung by Rick Moyer

Help, I need somebody,
Help, not just anybody,
Help, you know I need someone, help.

When I was younger, eight years ago today,
I beamed down with my Starfleet buds on the team away
But now my team is gone and I’m left all alone
Somehow the transporter created me a clone.

Help me if you can, My name is Tom
And that guy that looks like me can’t play that song
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won’t you please, please help me?

And now my life has changed here on Nervalla Four
I want to prove myself by retrieving the computer core.
My brother disagrees he thinks that I just whine,
So I’m gonna go after Troi and really make her mine.

Help me if you can, my name is Tom
And the clone of mine has taken up the com
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won’t you please, please help me.

So with my phaser I make a real cool pic
Jenarin Falls where me and Deanna took a trip
But with two of us it just doesn’t seem to work
It wouldn’t matter if my name had just been Kirk

Help me if you can, my name is Tom
and I can’t stay on this ship for very long
Help me, get my feet back on the ground,
Won’t you please, please help me, help me, help me, oh.

I’ve got Trek Under my Skin

Author: moyer777  //  Category: DS9, songs, Star Trek Enterprise, Star Trek Parodies, TNG, TOS, Voyager

My friend Rob from Orlando, Metron7 on the Treks in Sci Fi Forums, did an arrangement of “I’ve got you under my skin” with his cool keyboards. Anyway, he let me use it as a soundtrack for my version called “I’ve got Trek under my skin” I will be posting the Bill Murray remix in a few days, and think you will get a kick out of it! Rico is reviewing the DS9 episode “His Way” and with Vic Fontain being on the show, I just couldn’t resist! Thanks Rob for everything, and I hope everyone enjoys this!

I’ve Got Trek under my skin.
 
 
Ive got Trek, under my skin
Ive got Trek deep in the heart of me
So many episodes, that are really part of me

Ive got Trek under my skin.
Ive tried so to speak in Klingon
Ive said that this obsession with Kirk won’t go well
But why should I try to un geekifie when starfleet will I know then well
Ive got Trek under my skin
Id collect everything come what might
For the sake of having Trek near
In spite of my credit card statement that came last night
And re-runs, reruns on my tube
Dont you know you fan, you can never win
Use you eventually, wake up the next century
But the next episode, that’s when I explode
Makes me rewind and start it again
Cause Ive got Treak under my skin

TNG

Author: moyer777  //  Category: songs, Star Trek Parodies, TNG

AC/DC can play four chords like no other band. I’m not much into them anymore, but some of their classics live on. Rico covered the very first episode of Star Trek the Next Generation at Treks In Sci Fi and inspired me to do a Star Trek parody song to AC/DC’s song TNT. As I started humming the song, TNG seemed most appropriate. I remember watching the premier and just being giddy. The Enterprise was back, but this time it had a whole new crew! OH BOY!  We would huddle around our TV set on Saturday nights to catch the latest installment of Star Trek: The Next Generation. So I borrowed some clips from the show Encounter at Farpoint, added some from another episdoe and then tried to put as much grit into my voice as possilbe. Yes, my throat was sore for the evening after recording. What came out is what you hear! 🙂 So enjoy this week’s song called “TNG” it’s outta site!

T.N.G.

See the newer crew in space
On your colour TV screen
They built a whole new  TV set
If you know what I mean

Deanna to the left of me
And Riker to my right
Aint got no Kirk, Aint got no Spock
Just some Romulans to fight

‘Cause we’re T.N.G
on Saturday Night
T.N.G
And we’re outta site!
T.N.G
A brand new Enterprise
T.N.G
What a great surprise!

We’re newer, cooler, with a bigger ship
Gotta Klingon on board
A lady doctor and security cheif
and a visor man named Laforge

So warm up your warp core, and warm up your cards
Watch out for Wesely and  Captain Picard
There’s a new crew in town
So don’t you mess  around

‘Cause we’re T.N.G
on Saturday Night
T.N.G
And we’re outta site!
T.N.G
A brand new Enterprise
T.N.G
What a great surprise!

‘Cause we’re T.N.G
with that Android guy
T.N.G
Data’s got our eye
T.N.G
A brand new Enterprise
T.N.G
Rodenberry surprise!
