Gender-Swapped Star Trek

The original Star Trek series, forward-thinking in so many ways, was in large measure a product of its time when it came to gender roles. So how do the stories change — or do they — if Captain Kirk is a woman? Director Mindy Klenoff explores that question and guides Jane T. Kirk, Ms. Spock, Dr. McCoy, and the rest of the gender-swapped crew of the Enterprise on a journey to boldly go where no woman has gone before.

Arisia ’17: The Naked Time

At the 2017 Arisia science-fiction convention, the Post-Meridian Radio Players will present Gender-Swapped Star Trek: “The Naked Time”! While investigating a lost research team on a dying planet, Ms. Spock’s landing party discover that the crew of the previous expedition froze to death under bizarre, irrational circumstances. When they return to the Enterprise, they start to behave erratically, and even stoic Ms. Spock has trouble controlling her emotions. Has whatever madness befell the research expedition spread to the crew of the Enterprise?

Arisia ’16: Journey to Babel

“Why did you marry him?” “At the time, it seemed the logical thing to do.” At the 2016 Arisia science-fiction convention, the Post-Meridian Radio Players presented Gender-Swapped Star Trek: “Journey to Babel”! The Enterprise finds itself host to a number of bickering diplomats - including Spock's parents. When an alien dignitary is murdered, the prime suspect is Spock's mother!

Arisia ’15: Space Seed

Khaaaaaaaaan! At 2015’s Arisia science-fiction convention, director Mindy Klenoff again presented a gender-swapped interpretation of a classic Star Trek episode. This time she showed us a new perspective on “Space Seed”, the episode that introduced the genetically engineered superman superwoman Khan.

Arisia ’14: The Trouble with Tribbles

No tribble at all! Actress-turned-Director Mindy Klenoff (“The Do-Nothing Detective”) presented a gender-swapped interpretation of the classic Star Trek episode, David Gerrold's “The Trouble with Tribbles” at the 2014 Arisia science-fiction convention. This was the first in a series of performances featuring the adventures of Capt. Jane Kirk, her half-Vulcan science officer Ms. Spock, and the crew of the Enterprise, in which devious saleswoman Cordelia Jones trades in small furry animals and inadvertently throws a cute purring monkey-wrench into a secret plot.
