Improvised Star Trek
For ten years Improvised Star Trek explored 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. Improvised Star Trek is a fan production. Star Trek is property of CBS.

Please enjoy this week's bonus scene.

"Taxi, Follow that Shuttle!" was improvised as a warm-up scene on July 22, 2018 from a suggestion by TalonLardner via Twitter.

If your IST episodes 191 or 194 sound funny (in a weird way. not in the usual way) simpy re-download the episodes on your podcast app. We had some technical issues that have since been addressed!
