Star Wreck: In the Pirkinning is a Finnish science fiction comedy film released in 2005. It is based on the fictional universe of Star Trek and parodies many of the elements of the franchise. The film was written and directed by Timo Vuorensola and produced by Tero Kaukomaa. The plot of the movie follows the story of Captain James B. Pirk (Antti Satama) who is the captain of the USS Kickstart, a small spaceship that belongs to the Finnish Space Navy. Pirk is a womanizing, arrogant, and reckless captain who dreams of becoming the ruler of the galaxy.

The story of the movie takes place in the year 2018, when the Earth is on the brink of destruction due to a nuclear war that has been going on for thirty years. Pirk and his crew find a time machine which sends them back in time to the year 2004, where they discover an alien race that is planning to invade Earth.

Pirk and his crew face many challenges as they try to prevent the alien invasion and save the future of humanity. Along the way, they encounter various characters from the Star Trek universe, including Mr. Spock and Captain Jean-Luc Picard, who are portrayed in a comical way.

The special effects in the film are impressive, especially given the low budget of the production.
