Whether it's the Marshmallow Peeps spoof featuring "Alexander Hamilpeep," the fake "Got Milk?" commercial "Got Hamilton?" featuring Leslie Odom, Jr./Aaron Burr, or the musical itself, you'd be hard-pressed to find someone who hasn't been made aware of the existence of the Grammy award-winning musical and instant modern classic Hamilton.

The success and artistic merit of the film even won over Star Trek and Star Wars director J.J. Abrams, who asked the musical's creator and star, Lin-Manuel Miranda, to pen some of the new music featured in The Force Awakens' cantina scenes. Now, it seems that there is another Abrams-Hamilton connection - this time in the form of a Hamilton spoof that honors the director's 2009 reboot of the Star Trek franchise.

Written and performed by Jackson Lanzing, the talent behind comics like Batman and Robin Eternal and Hacktivist, the song "My Spock" is a riff on Miranda's "My Shot," which catalogues protagonist Alexander Hamilton's rise to the top. Like the original it's based on, "My Spock" also charts the upbringing of the half-human, half-Vulcan that shares his name with the song's title, and his eventual hook-up with U.S.S. Enterprise.

Keeping true to form, each Star Trek character has a Hamiltonian parallel (at least when it comes to corresponding song verses), with Spock's father Sarek as Hamilton, Captain Kirk as Hercules Mulligan, Chekhov as Aaron Burr, Bones as John Laurens, and Spock himself as the General Marquis de Lafayette.

It has seemingly spawned one of the more excellent portmanteaus in recent memory: HamilTrek.

Fans of both Hamilton and Star Trek have seemingly taken to the parody.

It can pretty much be guaranteed that after listening to the Hamilton tribute rap, you're not going to want to throw out your Spock, either.
