This Morning: Latest Star Trek Episode Beams Into Jackson

(WLNS) – The latest episode of the web series “Star Trek New Voyages” is landing in Jackson tonight and it’s for a good cause.

The episode is called “Mind-Sifter” and will be shown at the Michigan Theater in Jackson at 7:30 p.m. The free event will feature a panel discussion with actor Brian Gross, who portrays Captain James T. Kirk in the series, and screenwriter Rick Chambers, a communications consultant from Kalamazoo.

Tonight’s event will also be a fundraiser for early grade reading initiatives through Energizing Education.

In “Mind-Sifter”, a tortured Kirk is lost in the past and presumed dead. Newly promoted Captain Spock (actor Brandon Stacy), must deal with a resentful crew, enemy threats, and haunting images of his suffering friend Kirk.

Before tonight’s debut Gross and Chambers visited 6 News This Morning to talk with Chivon Kloepfer about the event and the episode.

Admission to the event is free and people are encouraged to dress up in a Star Trek costume or other science fiction outfit. For every costume, Rick Chambers and Associates will donate $10, up to a total of $500, to Energizing Education through United Way of Jackson County.

We welcome thoughts and comments from our viewers. We ask that everyone keep their remarks civil and respectful. Postings that contain profanity, racist, or potentially libelous remarks will be deleted. We will delete any commercial postings, as well.
