It seemed like a straight forward enough assignment, take a bunch of spoof writing nut jobs and get them to cobble together an amusing team effort Star Trek spoof for the enjoyment of spoof readers everywhere. Just make it like a proper Star Trek story only with lots of erotic content and the biggest vagina in the universe.
But there have been problems aplenty. World renowned satirical website TheSpoof.com has been inundated with Star Trek sex pervert stories that have no connection with the original concept, as conceived by BuckwheatsButt, championed by the legendary Jalapenoman and sanctioned by Captain Morse, founder of the original Spoof collaboration, Below Decks, which in the half light of day can be viewed as a plethora of missed opportunities.
Much to Mr Lowton's chagrin.
"It's all bloody Star Trek!" he complained, prompting an emergency editorial meeting which vowed to encourage potential contributors to pitch their stories on the message forum to entail some kind of order to be maintained.
So it was agreed that all submissions should be posted on the forum, so that contributors don't jump the gun, and so that the organizers can take the piss out of potential participants.
In a similar vein, renewed interest in the Below Decks saga has prompted Steven Spielberg to renew interest in a movie version of said saga. Rob Reiner accused the beardy one of being a bandwagon jumper and warned him to keep his filthy fingers off the Star Trek spoof extravaganza.
Sexually orientated material is rumoured to have caused the movie projects to have attracted a XXX rating before production has even begun.
The Star Trek saga is hoped to attract upwards of forty contributors from around the world. And twenty-seven readers.
More as we get it.
