As I mentioned before, Warp 11 was initially spawned as an idea for a weekly Internet TV show we were doing back in 99 called the Prime Directive. The show was a half an hour long and the band was created to fill about 4 minutes of said show each week. We also did things like Trek News, Trek Haiku, Trek Commercials and Trek Segments like the one you’re about to see here.
I’m actually pretty proud of this one. It’s a 15 minute piece about a boy bad called the “New Cadets on the Block.” Other than the fact that it looks like we didn’t know what “lights” were at some points, it’s pretty well put together. If you’ve ever wondered what a “boy-band” song written by Warp 11 would sound like, check out the 8 minute mark. Enjoy!
Oh and can you tell I’ve learned how to add custom thumbnails on YouTube videos? Watch that hit counter go!

We also did things like Trek news, Trek haiku, Trek commercials and the intros to fake Trek TV shows like the one you’re about to see here. With the benefit of hindsight I would have made it about half the length it is but hey… when you’re filling 30 minutes a week you tend to pad where you can. This song was written by Warp 11. The music was performed by our drunk sound man, David Baxley, because it’s impossible for us (Warp 11) to play music that doesn’t f#@%ing ROCK. Enjoy!
Wesley Crusher Yeah!
In times of need we all need a helping hand
Someone to care someone to love and understand
From the stars so far away he has come
With a smile on his face, that’s brighter than the sun
You know he’s gonna make it better
Wesley crusher yeah
A clean-cut lad in his new sweater
Wesley crusher yeah
He is a friend to you and me
Wesley crusher yeah he’s cheering up the galaxy Wesley crusher yeah
He can fly any ship that was ever made
He’s not like Captain Kirk, he never gets laid
But he can travel anywhere through time and space
With his hair like Bob’s big boy and a smile on his face
He’ll save the universe
He’ll never say a curse
He’ll help us see the light today
He’s always so polite
Yeah he won’t scratch or bite
He’s effeminate… But he isn’t gay
Back in the year 1999, three incredibly handsome and talented boys had a dream. A dream to create the greatest Star Trek themed band in the Alpha Quadrant. To bring their music to the masses they also created one of the first tv shows (The Prime Directive) to ever be streamed live on the internet. They really didn’t know what the hell they were doing and their sound man was perpetually drunk on “Romulan Ale” so the sound drops in and out the entire performance (DON’T TURN YOUR SPEAKERS UP TOO LOUD WHEN WE FIRST START PLAYING!) but regardless…. Please enjoy the very first appearance of Warp 11. (Look how young and skinny we all were!)
There’s an old Ferengi proverb which states, “The more you pay for something the more you’ll appreciate it.” With that in mind, think how much you’ll enjoy seeing Warp 11 TONIGHT (Nov. 21st) at the SacTrek convention in Sacramento! SacTrek

Crewmembers! Warp 11 is absolutely double-dumbass-on-you thrilled to announce that on October 24th something is going to take place that has only happened six times before in the ENTIRE SPACE-TIME CONTINUUM (and no, there aren’t any other Warp 11 bands in other time streams or parallel universes — WE’RE THE ONLY ONE!! We checked.) Warp 11 will have our CD release show for our seventh album, “Rock Out With Your Spock Out”!Continue reading →
