(The lack of) Star Trek in Japan

So I have noticed that there have been inquiries as to the state of Trek fandom in Japan. The truth is that there really isn't much of a fandom here.
As my fellow based-in-Japan made of awesome people know, it's hard to find ST stuff unless it's the odd promotional item (kewpie Spock), at Tower Records, or you look through a world-character comic specialty shop (I can think of only 1 in all of Tokyo).

For your reading, an article on GaijinPot on the state of Trek in Japan:

While GaijinPot sometimes has stuff that makes me roll my eyes, I figured this is a decent intro to the issue.

It's that time of the week again: Friday!

So here is the weekly post where you GQMFs can post links to their own Star Trek-themed fan videos, art, fiction, crossover macros, and anything else that you feel best belongs right in here.

We recommend that you comment with a link to your journal/youtube/DeviantArt/etc, where we can all bust a gut laughing at your talent, as opposed to posting all the pictures/videos/etc in a single comment.

pimp it!
