(written from a Production point of view)
Star Trek Live is a Star Trek-themed interactive stage show currently under development by CBS Consumer Products and Mad Science. The show will be based on the 2009 film Star Trek and is set to run in theme parks and performing arts centers across the United States beginning in 2010.
The premise of the show will involve audience members playing the roles of Starfleet cadets under the tutelage of Captain James T. Kirk and Spock aboard the USS Enterprise. The Enterprise, as well as Earth, come under attack, and it will be up to the cadets (the audience) to help save the day. The show, which will run sixty minutes, will combine special effects, audience interaction, and an exploration of real space-age technology.
