Viral video: Star Trek's Captain Kirk watches Miley Cyrus 2013 MTV Video Music Awards performance

As Miley Cyrus, writhing on stage with tongue askew, looking somewhat like a prototypical "Star Trek" alien babe, appears on the bridge's video screen, the crew of the USS Enterprise reacts in horror.

A new episode of the sci-fi classic?" No, just a hilarious re-imagination of how the crew might have responded had they encountered the bizarre Ms. Cyrus in space. The video, published on Aug. 29 by AriesHeadFilms , already has nearly 3 million views on YouTube.

"I have never encountered readings like this before," says Mr. Spock.

"Try another channel lieutenant," Kirk orders Lt. Uhura. "I cannot filter out the distortion sir. It's getting worse," she responds as Miley continues her foam-fingered gyrations.

As the dancing continues, Kirk, In his trademark style, exclaims, " What ... is ... that?"

The facial reactions of everyone from Sulu to Uhura to Spock are priceless as Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke go on to perform their raunchy version of "Blurred Lines." 

Eventually, the crew goes mad and, well, things don't end well.
