To be fair, let's start with a warning: If you don't know the difference between Khan and a Klingon and you have trouble remembering what a tribble is, then you'll probably wonder what all the fuss is about.
However, being a huge fan of the original series (TOS for the Trekkies) and its cast, it was an absolute delight to see performer Michael Schaldemose boldly go into "Call me Kirk": a one-man adventure that weaves together -- and makes hearty fun of -- many of the best and cheesiest moments that Captain Kirk and crew had to offer.
Primarily performing as the Captain, Mr Schaldemose plays "William Shatner playing James T. Kirk" with a comic precision that approaches eerie at times. In not more than split seconds throughout the show, he skilfully shifts character to each of the other seven original cast members and many of our favourite aliens, holding down entire conversations and even vocalising a few of the sound effects himself.
If you're a sci-fi fan looking to add some light-hearted entertainment and skilled character acting to your evening, I highly recommend this Star Trek Adventure.
