As we reported earlier, this weekend marked the premiere of Trek in the Park and their live performance of "Space Seed" in Portland. We have video and pictures, plus news of another outdoor Star Trek performance of "The Naked Time" coming to Seattle.
Space Seed Live in Portland
The Atomic Arts company in Portland, OR began its second year of Trek in the Park with a live performance of "Space Seed". The free performances are done live at 5 PM in Woodland Park every Saturday and Sunday in July though to August 1st.

OregonLive reviewed Atomic Arts "Space Seed", saying in part:
The local reenactment of the episode can be seen in the park on weekends, and it is unexpectedly polished. Lines are said without a stumble, actors come and go without a hitch, and the familiar sound effects are faithfully reproduced. The costumes are true to the original, with Lt. Uhura’s wig a presence all its own. The entire production has the air of an enthusiastic but respectful labor of love.
And the guys at CulturePop were so inspired by Trek in the Park, they created a special comic just for it.
Outdoor "Naked Time" coming to Seattle in August
The Northwest is getting another live Star Trek this summer as Hello Earth will be doing free performances of "The Naked Time" at Blanche Lavizzo Park in Seattle (Saturday, July 31st and August 7th at 7pm and Sunday, August 1st and 8th at 2 pm). More info at www.helloearthproductions.org.
