Feb. 15 (UPI) -- A bemused passenger on the London Underground captured video of a bizarre performance featuring actors in Star Trek uniforms on a crowded train.

The video, recorded Wednesday, shows the performers in Star Trek costumes standing among the passengers on the Metropolitan line.

The actors recite a scene about being on the bridge of a starship, and engage in coordinated movements when their "ship" comes under fire from "laser phasers."

''I was sitting on the tube when these group of actors got on and began performing a scene of a captain and crew on the bridge of a starship,'' the filmer later wrote online.

The purpose behind the performance was unclear, as were the identities of the actors involved.
