Tuesday Tune: The “Star Trek” Fight Music Remix

One of the most iconic scenes of the original Star Trek series appeared in the Ted Sturgeon-written episode “Amok Time“, in which Kirk and Spock fought to the death to a music soundtrack that haunts me to this day.

That Star Trek fight scene was beautifully spoofed by Jim Carrey in The Cable Guy. Here’s a YouTube playlist with both the Star Trek fight scene and the one from The Cable Guy. Because this is apparently how I get my kicks.
