Star Trek Dance Floor by Sloane is a feminist critique of the 2009 Star Trek film, posted a month after the film's release. The vid juxtaposes clips of different characters from the film with The Flight of the Conchords' song "Too Many Dicks on the Dance Floor" to show the gender imbalance in the cast.

The vid was reviewed on the Political Remix Video blog[1], where it was the most-viewed post as of March 2010.[2]

This vid also inspired at least one other vid: the video game remix "Too Many Dicks" by Anita Sarkeesian of FeministFrequency.com[3] On September 10, political remixer Jonathan McIntosh released a version of "Too Many Dicks" remixing Daily Show footage (to comment on the lack of female comedians and perspective on the show) and explicitly cites Sloan's Star Trek vid as his inspiration in the credits.
