Now I am probably younger than most here (29), but I had never seen this before...found it on youtube. I have heard of the album (I own the LP actually), but never heard/saw a video for it.

My daughter (5) said, "Why would anyone sing that?" I am still struggling to find an answer.

Aweful song, aweful video. Brian May must have had too much extra time on his hands to do that.

Yeah but the tapping solo Ed does at 2'40 is pretty damn good! :D

I actually love the song (because of Ed's solo)...the video was kind of scary. I just had to post it.

Safe to summize Brian May wasn't the driving force behind those Queen melodies and counter melodies. Makes you wonder what a new Queen effort would be like without Freddy.

If I remember correctly Starfleet was a show Brian's kids watched, so they wrote a song based on it.

I am guessing that strange video is from the show. Hopefully he did the vid for his kids.

Scary is right! I never made it to EVH's solo - what time frame are we talking about here so I can mute that bitch until then???

I think the video is what makes the song seem like is suck 100% when it is really probably 65% of total suckyness.

The song is actually a remake of the Starfleet theme song which as stated was a favorite of Brian's son. The video is a collection of clips from the show.

Either way, it's pretty awful.

The other two songs on the EP are kick ass. I have it on cassette.

the solo is amazing but the video is scary and the songs chorus is hilarious. so bad i love it in fact.

backwards tapping!

Wow. Ed said in an interview once that at one point during this project he broke a string and just kept on playing out of tune. Sounds like it might have helped...

Star Fleet!
Star Fleet!

its funny how usually on the second star fleet thats when they show brian mays giant afro floating head singing the song all serious like hes a commander.

and is it me or is the chorus in a totally different key then the rest of the song, and that also makes it sound real weird?

Agreed! I listened long enough for the guitar solo, and had to stop when it was over. Holy hell that's a horrible song.

This is a good topic for the new You Tube forum. I will move it there.:)
