We had no idea what to make of Starfleet Dental. The web site looks like a dentists’ professional organization, until you actually start reading the site:
Starfleet Dental is the galactic voice for dentistry, dedicated to the advancement and leadership of a unified profession and to the promotion of optimal oral health, an essential component of general health.
Okay. A little odd, you know, dentists don’t usually talk about being galactic in scope.
And then you go on and read:
Founded in 632, the Starfleet Dental is a non-profit professional association representing the galaxies billions of dentists, and Dental professionals.
Located in Coruscant with ancillary offices and stations across galaxy, Starfleet Dental serves its members and the public by managing key oral health issues and by coordinating dental health awareness programs across the galaxy.
And it’s at this point that you know you’ve been had. It actually appears to be some kind of shill site for the new Star Wars game from LucasArts, currently in beta and costing over $100 million dollars to produce.
But they have a great machinema music video they did using SWTOR (Star Wars: The Old Republic). It’s not science fiction music, so it won’t end up on the Krypton Radio playlist, but what they did with the SWTOR engine was so cool that we couldn’t let this one go by without sharing it with you.
