Arisia ’14: The Trouble with Tribbles

The Trouble with Tribbles


Actress-turned-Director Mindy Klenoff (“The Do-Nothing Detective”) is presenting a gender-swapped interpretation of the classic Star Trek episode, David Gerrold's “The Trouble with Tribbles”.

The show will be performed at the Arisia Sci-Fi convention ( in January over MLK weekend.  Rehearsals will be in the Davis Square area of Somerville, once or twice a week.  Not all actors will be called to each rehearsal.

For those unfamiliar with the episode:

“A dispute over control of a planet brings Enterprise to a space station, where they must deal with Klingons, edgy Federation officials, and a previously-unknown species of small, unbearably cute, voraciously hungry and rapidly-multiplying furry creatures.”

—Plot summary from

The show will stick to the original TV script as close as possible (which unfortunately means the character of Sulu is not available, as he did not appear in this episode).
