Improvised Star Trek (episode)
Improvised Star Trek explores the final frontier of comedy by turning Star Trek into an improv office comedy. Taking suggestions submitted on Twitter and Facebook, the cast (featuring some of Chicago’s top improvisors) creates a fully improvised episode detailing the adventures of the USS Sisyphus, a less enterprising starship. New episodes are posted every other week. To learn more about the show check out our website, facebook page, or twitter!
Improvised Star Trek is fan production. Star Trek is property of CBS/Paramount.

The Sisyphus accidentally happens upon the Borg during their quarterly fundraising drive and no one changes the station in time and pretty soon the crew starts thinking about how they've always meant to assimilate but just never really got around to it and maybe this year is the year to finally just shell out to help fund the really great antonistic activities that the Borg can always be relied on to produce every single day whether it's on your commute or during your workout or just while you're doing chores around the house. Plus, that tote bag!
