Captain Picard and the Enterprise Crew Sing “Let It Snow”

Captain Picard and the Enterprise Crew Sing “Let It Snow”

When you think about it, not having any seasons has got to be one the real drawbacks of living on a starship. “Day” in and “day” out, there’s just that same view of cold, dark space through your viewport. And how can anybody get in a festive mood when interstellar travel pretty much abstracts the very notion of a calendar year? Well, if you’re of an iron will like Jean Luc Picard, then you’re just going to force it to happen. You’ll simply… make it so.

Game developer James Covenent has applied his own mandate to The Next Generation, dicing up and re-editing countless clips to make it look like the ever stoic Starfleet Captain is finally letting his hair down (well, in a manner of speaking, at least). The montage sees him lead the whole Enterprise crew through a delightfully authoritative riff on a classic holiday jingle. For any Trekie who’s ever noted that the chorus of “Let it snow! Let it snow! Let it snow!” rhymes quite easily with Picard’s catchphrase, here’s the oh-so-silly supercut to make you smile. It even manages to fit in gags about the Captain’s highly-specific tea preferences and Wesley Crusher’s… interjections. Please, enjoy.

Alongside footage of video games he’s developing, Covenant’s channel features plenty of other montages wherein geek movie ensembles “sing” pop songs together. He’s made the Lord of the Rings cast do some Ke$ha karaoke and the Star Wars crew cover Carly Rae Jepsen. Most relevant, though, is this clip where the Avengers (and a surprise “evergreen” guest) sing a whole medley of Christmas carols.

Did this goofy little video “make” your day? What other geeky holiday edits are worth streaming? Please share in the talkback.
