The Enterprise is raided by some chick who steals Spock’s brain
After coming back from cancellation, Star Trek kicked off it’s third season with this silly episode…perhaps some wondered if they should have written all those letters. Ironically the CBS-D team have more to work with than in some recent weeks. Expect to see a new ion drive ship, a new matte painting and some expert rotoscoping of Kirk in front of the main viewer showing a data display
Spock’s Brain – The Play
How do you make a gag out of this…well maybe you don’t. 3 years ago "Spock’s Brain" was performed live in a licensed performance at the Improve Theater in Irvine, CA (and once at the Vegas Con). They played it word for word with sound effects and music….no need to parody it all it, it still got the laughs….here are the first 8 minutes
…and here is a news story and more clips from the show

UPDATE: I have been e-mail chatting with Mike Carano (who is respsonsible for the play) and he says that they are thinking of doing other productions if CBS allow. He also sent over an image of his living room including his ‘ipod controlled captain’s chair‘…this guy is a serious fan.
