1. Anthony Thompson - June 30, 2011

Yes, I do happen to live there (near Mpls.)!!! Should be fun! But I want the Experience also!

2. Snugglepuff - July 1, 2011

Why is it that everytime something cool is going on it’s always up north or out west, never in the south!!

3. Desstruxion - July 1, 2011

Not cool enough to me. Leave it where it is.

4. Captain Ucklak - July 1, 2011

I was born in the south and escaped it many years ago. With all due respect, the cool stuff happens in those other places because they are cooler places.

New Orleans is pretty awesome, but nothing “Star Trek” ever happens there…

5. Bill Binder - July 1, 2011

Anthony, if you enjoy the show. You should check out Huge Theatre up there. It’s really got the best improv in the area. (Nothing against Brave New Workshop that also has great shows)

6. CmdrR - July 1, 2011

Makes me appreciate how hard TOS staffers worked to make the unis look good.

Anyway, looks like silly fun.

7. Desstruxion - July 1, 2011

Dr. McCoy thought the South was pretty cool.

8. Sybok's Secret Brother - July 1, 2011

Trek in the Park RULES!!

Btw – Netfilx now is streaming all the Trek’s (Except DS9) now.

9. Let Them Eat Plomeek Soup - July 1, 2011

I watched Trek in the Park on YouTube…I wanted to go to Oregon so badly after that! But last year my dad and I took a trip there during Thanksgiving….and we both sort of swore we would never travel there again.

So, YouTube people, I am relying on YOU to take your camcorders and iPhones, and get the performances on video for me…I mean us!

10. Lukas Ketner - July 1, 2011

Actually, last year’s Trek in the Park was Space Seed. Amok Time was the year before. Adam and the gang really put on a killer show. They fill the park for every performance!

11. Lukas Ketner - July 1, 2011

Oh that’s right, Naked Tine was in Seattle. My mistake.

12. John - July 1, 2011

Ok who clicked on this article because on the front page image had a a girl in a short blue dress, come on admit it! :)

13. Hannah - July 2, 2011

Thanks for the mention! I’m the director of the Minneapolis show (and the voice of the ship’s computer). We’re trying to get the word out that tickets are *free* for our show if you show up dressed in Star Trek costume.

14. Adam - July 2, 2011

Thanks for the mention, Anthony!! The cast and crew of Trek in the Park wish a big LLAP.
