In 1988, Two Star Trek: TNG Fans Broke Into The Enterprise And Filmed A 'Documentary'

Star Trek: The Next Generation ended almost 20 years ago, but given the series lasted a healthy seven seasons, it's guaranteed we'll be hearing stories about the sci-fi TV show for some time to come. Though those stories won't always be from the cast and crew, as this, uh, "documentary" by two interlopers proves.

According to Dan Roth over at Blastr, the film was made back in 1988 by a pair of fans who found a way onto the set during a three-week hiatus of the show. They decided to go for a bit of an adventure through the various areas of the Enterprise-D, including engineering, sick bay and the partially-dismantled conference room.

As an actual documentary, the clip isn't particularly exciting. It has its share of funny moments — such as when the host, one Captain Stone (who reminds me somewhat of Reginald Barclay) knocks over a biobed and when the pair gets caught in the act right at the end — but, overall, you're probably not going to learn anything new by enduring all 32 minutes, but I'm sure as heck not going to stop you from watching it.
