Although not eligible, since they were only guests on an episode of Star Trek, no one would beat the Space Hippies.

Fuckin’ Space Hippies, maaaaannnnn!

I can’t find a specific clip of what’s next, but next Spock makes like a Final Frontier version of John Sebastian and jams with a hippie chick on a space autoharp.

Here’s Captain Kirk keeping it gay!

Here’s Uhuru singing AND playing an intergalactic lute!

Take that, Sting!

This time it’s Spock accompanied by the intergalactic lute—played by the little guy from Wild Wild West no less!

    This is too late to be a contender, but it makes me very happy:

    I was never a fan of TNG, so those submissions are automatically eliminated.

    For pure kitsch factor, Kirk wins it. Ever since his “Lucy In the Sky With Diamonds,” his singing has “enthralled” me. This is one of my favorite performances: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MGr2zf_x8IU

    Uhura has the best voice. I always was a fan of hers.

    But the best performance is by Spock. That intergalactic lute number is from a favorite episode, “Plato’s Step-children,” in which members of the crew are forced to act in ways that they naturally wouldn’t, all for the entertainment of the host Platists. Not only did the episode feature an inter-racial kiss (between Kirk and Uhura) but poor Spock had to emote all over the place by singing that lute ballad. Poor Spock. But notice his dignity, even when having to wear that teal toga.

  3. Man, that show, in all its iterations, is really embarrassingly stupid. I’ll go with Shatner just because his stuff is so over the top.

    I have a soft spot for Spock’s singing the line “ah ah ah ah, bitter dregs”.

    But Shatner’s rendition of “Common People” has got to be far and away the best thing and fully worthy of RTH appreciation, though mainly due to the rest of the track.
