In June, we will be reprising our gender-swapped take on the classic Star Trek episode “The Doomsday Machine”, first performed in January at the 2024 Arisia science-fiction convention. There will be three performances, with a talkback with director and cast after Friday’s performance. While we will happily take donations, attendence is free, and no reservations are required; just show up!

Investigating a distress call from the USS Constellation, Captain Jane Kirk finds it dead in space with the commanding officer, Commodore Decker, alone on board with a harrowing tale of a giant planet-killing device. With Captain Kirk stranded on the broken-down starship and a distraught Decker bent on revenge, can the crew of the Enterprise survive their encounter with the planet killer and stop it from continuing its destruction?
