-->-- '''S.P.O.C.K''', ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WjF9zYx8Jy4 Star Pilot On Channel K]]''

The synth band S.P.O.C.K specializes in ScienceFiction geekery. The band members usually wear ''Franchise/StarTrek'' uniforms on stage during their concerts, and most songs are built around tropes or characters in ScienceFiction.

Common themes are ''Franchise/StarTrek'', ''StarWars'', {{alien invasion}}s and generic ScienceFiction concepts - that often gets twisted around quite a bit.

Named after the [[Characters/StarTrek Star Trek Character Spock]], who is also the TropeNamer for TheSpock.

-------
!! the band S.P.O.C.K itself is an example of:
* PublicDomainCharacter: Inverted & Defied - Spock is ''not'' public domain, and thus the band is named SPOCK instead. If some copyright lawyer starts bitching about it, they can always pretend that the title of their song "Star Pilot On Channel K" is the "real" name of the band.

!! S.P.O.C.K. songs has examples of:

* AlienAbduction: The main character in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvQG26XqNjI Next In Line]]" - and eventually also the audience: the title is the protagonist's warning "you are next in line".
* AlienAmongUs: The protagonist of "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V7KWx0J9pn0 ET Phone Home"]].
* AlienInvasion: Aliens invade in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bk4d-qFCO1Q Alien Attack]]" as well as "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plG8rctx4pA All ET's aren't nice]]", "They Are Here" and "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvQG26XqNjI Next In Line]]".
* AliensFromEarth: The aliens in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bk4d-qFCO1Q Alien Attack]]" are actually dinosaurs.
* AlwaysChaoticEvil: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-CSCQ-fSnfs NEVER TRUST A KLINGON]]!
* CrapsackOnlyByComparison: "Beam Me Up", (surely inspired by ''Film/StarTrekIVTheVoyageHome'') sums up our world with the words "Beam me up, there's no intelligent life down here where I am".
* TheDarkSide: Featured in "The Dark Side Of The Force" (where Darth Vader is the protagonist) as well as in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CSFp6q3Ywv4 The Stormtroper]]" (where the protagonist is a reluctant minion of the evil Empire).
* DreamWithinADream: In the song with the same name.
* EarthAllAlong: In "Beam Me Up", the characters encounter a barbaric culture that they eventually realize is 21:th century Earth.
* EarthIsYoung: Subverted in ''[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bk4d-qFCO1Q Alien Attack]]''. It starts out as a straight Type B, ranting about how geology is just a theory that shouldn't be trusted. And then it turns out that they are not talking about the earth being young (which would have made more sense from the first lines). Instead, they are talking about how the dinosaurs actually survived the extinction level event by fleeing out into space. Now they are back, and furious that the humans evolved and took over their planet in their absence.
** ''"Alien, alien attack. [[PunctuatedForEmphasis They. Want. Their. Planet. Back."'']]
* EndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt: Parodied in the song "End of the universe", which is actually about the DouglasAdam novel The Restaurant At The End Of The Universe.
* GiveGeeksAChance: In "Every Single Day", the protagonist tries to convince a woman that it would be great to be with a geek like him. In "Android's Dilemma", the protagonist is not only a geeky humanoid computer, but also a virgin who is trying to get a love life.
* GravityIsOnlyATheory: See Earth Is Young example above.
* HesDeadJim: Invoked in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zEtb2t4s3c4 Dr McCoy]]"
* HookerWithAHeartOfGold: "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JvhQ_dQapI4 Astrogirl]]" is a quite sad story.
* LastOfHisKind: The protagonist in "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1BB83ofAlU The Last Man On Earth]]".
* TheMasquerade: Evil aliens infiltrating earth government et cetera. Featured in several songs, including "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cvQG26XqNjI Next In Line]]" and "They Are Here".
