For the last couple of summers TrekMovie has reported the fun Trek in the Park plays from the Atomic Arts theater company in Portland, OR. Now the group has gained new famed, being featured in the latest episode of IFC’s comedy Portlandia. Check out a clip of that below, plus a clip of Star Trek and Battlestar Galactica’s Ron Moore guest starring in a BSG-themed segment.
Trek in the Park
The second season of IFC’s comedy Portlandia, co-created and starring SNL’s Fred Armisen, aired its fifth episode ("Cops Redesign") on Friday. The episode opened with an incident during a performance of "Trek in the Park," featuring the Atomic Arts theater group. Check it out.
And speaking of Trek/sci-fi connections, the 2nd episode of the season (“One Moore Episode) had a major Battlestar Galatica theme with Fred and Carrie becoming so obsessed with BSG that they solicit "Ron Moore" to write another episode, but they just picked a random Ron Moore out of the phone book. BSG stars James Callis and Edward James Olmos guest starred as themselves, with the real Ronald D. Moore appearing as a guy from a local theater group. Watch the clip.
