Trek in the Park

In its fifth and final season, this year’s Trek in the Park is a fun, creative and family-friendly way to spend an afternoon. It’s everything you’d expect from a live-action adaptation of classic Star Trek, and Allied Arts couldn’t have picked a better episode to perform. The 45-minute “The Trouble With Tribbles” presents Kirk and crew protecting a shipment of grain destined for a colony on a newly settled planet. While on shore leave at a local space station, the Enterprise becomes infested with thousands of rapidly reproducing, hamsterlike balls of fuzz called Tribbles, which, while adorable, threaten to eat everything in sight. Director Adam Rosko and his team obviously put a lot of love into this production: Live-action technical limitations are handled as well as anyone could hope (a sound man plays dopey effects on a keyboard), and a fight scene with Klingons is performed with all the faux grace of the original series. Any nerds who haven’t yet crossed Trek in the Park off their bucket lists should see it before its five-year mission ends forever.
