We love starships. They’re the magical conveyances that can take ordinary people like us within reach of extraordinary adventure. They’re our protectors, our friends and our constant companions as our imaginary alter egos explore the galaxy. That must be why this video by Bironic resonates.
Originally produced by video editor Bironic for VividCon 2012, this jaw-dropping music video uses Nicki Minaj’s ‘Starship!’ as a sound track. It’s a celebration of pilots, captains, engineers, crew members, and the spacecraft they love to fly.
Here are all the movies and TV shows Bironic used: 2001: A Space Odyssey, Alien/Aliens, Apollo 13, Archer, Battlestar Galactica (2004-8), Cocoon, Community, Doctor Who (2005-), Dune, Farscape, The Fifth Element, Firefly/Serenity, Forbidden Planet, Futurama, Galaxy Quest, Independence Day, The Muppet Show, Odyssey 5, Planet of the Apes (1968), Spaceballs, Star Trek (TOS, Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager; movies II, IV, VII, VIII and XI/Reboot), Star Wars IV & V, Stargate: Atlantis, Stargate SG-1, Sunshine, Superman (1978), Toy Story 2, Virtuality, WALL-E.
Warning: this video uses the original version of the song, so it’s got some not-safe-for-work language in it. Probably not safe for kids either – but the version we play on SCIFI.radio is the family-safe version.
