Star Trek now has competition in a new video, Cats in Space. But unlike Kirk and Spock battling evil aliens in the constellation Orion, cats exploring frontiers of space on an Enterprise-like starship have only one mission, fighting space mice.
Trek movie thinks it is not surprising that Cats in Space has become a hit. "The most popular viral videos are either something geeky or something to do with cats, so this was inevitable." Gawker believes that with Cats in Space, the long debate over which is greater, Star Trek or Star Wars is over.
The new Star Trek-inspired viral video is a two-minute film created by Dastoli Digital, and tells the story of a dramatic space battle between cats and mice. The film also comes with a companion "making-of" video that gives surprising revelations about the movie: The only technical aspect of the production was the robot in the movie.
