Well, this was a fun time. Tonight I nerded out with my friend Aaron at Impro Studio for a couple of cool Star Trek-themed events. The first was a talk with Larry Nemecek, AKA "Dr. Trek," and Andreea Kindryd, who told stories only she could tell as the assistant to Gene Coon, who was an instrumental writer for the original Star Trek series. The second half was a performance by The Improvised Generation, an improv group that performs Trek-themed "episodes" live in front of an audience. They executed a story about the eclipse of seven moons on Rigel 7, and how the captain of the ship (Aliza Pearl, pictured left) had a striking resemblance to one of the world's gods. It was hilarious and so brilliantly done. I was amazed at how well they weaved a story together that included action, humor, and a moral/message — just like a televised Star Trek episode — but on the spot. If you're in the Los Angeles area and you enjoy Star Trek, don't miss this group.
