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.

A quantum entanglement threatens to endanger the crew of the Sisyphus and takes root right where it hurts most - within the ship's handheld loose meat. DuFarge and Lorem get to know each other. Rip upgrades his communicator.

This episode was improvised on May 14, 2017 from a suggestion by Joel Svensson via Facebook.
