I have loved Gilbert & Sullivan since I first saw HMS Pinafore in 5th Grade...and I have been professionally involved in STAR TREK since I put it on the cover of STARLOG #1 in 1976. To see these two unlikely worlds merged -- with such positive energy and excellent talents -- was pure delight. May this show live long and prosper!

Quotes & Highlights
“Spectacular! Wacky! I smiled so much my cheeks hurt!” —_The Tolucan Times _
“U.S.S. Pinafore’s mixing the rhythmical musical score with a Treky-based theme is one gigantically, terrific, musical takeoff. The adaptation fits the satire beautifully!” —Broadwayworld.com (5 of 5 stars)
Adapted by Jon Mullich from _H.M.S. Pinafore _and other Gilbert & Sullivan works
Musical Direction by William A. Reilly
U.S.S. Pinafore takes Gilbert and Sullivan farther than they’ve ever gone before…to outer space! The nineteenth century ironsides of the title has been fitted with anti-gravitation gear and lasers set to kill! It takes to the air in a brand-new version that is guaranteed to blast you out of earth’s atmosphere and send you to a solar system filled with laughter and delight. The trivial antics of G&S’s veddy British lords and ladies seem far less trivial when they’re fighting for their lives against alien lizard men!
