The Lyrics

Yes, it's another piece of Star Trek filk. I apologize for nothing.
Stood there calmly
Gazing at the throng
Star Trek convention
Lines were very long
My ears were pointed
My attitude was calm
Like a Spock

Registration
Need to buy a pass
Offered my katra [1]
But they wanted cash
Vulcan Express card
Got me in at last
Like a Spock

A lone Mugato
Was hunting passers by
A group of Klingons
Just gave a battle cry
So fascinating
I raise an eyebrow high
Like a Spock

Like a Spock, always thinking logically
Like a Spock, living long and prospering
Like a Spock, spreading I.D.I.C. [2]
Like a Spock

And I stand arrow straight
As I swiftly calculate
The odds of meeting Michael Dorn
Then I head down the hall
Toward the dealer stall
That sells the rare beanie Gorn

Never knowing
Grief or joy
But I do
Get annoyed
From all of those damn arguments
With McCoy

But now it's late at night
And the characters reunite
Zoe Saldana comes in my sight
And I blank out
I blank out

Like a Spock, taken by pon farr [3]
Like a Spock, feeling k'oh-nar [4]
Like a Spock, time for kal'i'farr [5]
Like a Spock

Like a Spock, I'm rushing to the stage
Like a Spock, now it's time to mate
Like a Spock, they're dragging me away
Like a Spock
Uh, like a Spock?
[1]: the essence of the Vulcan mind [2]: Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations, the basis of Vulcan philosophy [3]: the Vulcan time of mating, driving Vulcans to madness if they don't mate [4]: emotional vulnerability [5]: marriage

Spock-tacular!

Fascinating, Captain. The writer is apparently making linguistic substitutions to a previously written well known song inverting in the process the sense of the original song. Apparently this was a 21st century comic art form know as "song parody". Furthermore, he appears to be engaging in an act of self parody as well, in that he is using a song with heroic overtones to describe his not too heroic activities ....Most intriguing. I believe the appropriate response in this instance would be to award him a score of three fives

I find your expression of gratitude to be most illogical in this instance, Mr Ungericht, as I was merely making a routine psycholinguistic analysis of your efforts and following the numerical recommendations generated by the ship's historical comedy computer
