Thanks this week to Cassrain, AudioDramaNut and Georgetheavguy for new iTunes reviews!
We also have a project underway where you can do us a favor just by relistening to old episodes.  If you look at our current episode descriptions they all include a cast list, including all the various aliens and ensigns and we play. We're hoping to get lists for all of our old episodes so that you can just look at the episode description to immediately see if Greg, or Lackey or Smelt make an appearance. If you go to our website you can see instructions on how to help. You can do one episode or many, but everyone who chips in will get exclusive access to a special unproduced episode of Improvised Star Trek.

Improvised Star Trek Needs Your Help to Build Character Lists

Picture by Tiffany Keane


The USS Sisyphus would like your help, and all you have to do is listen to your favorite episodes again.

You'll notice in recent episode descriptions we've got full lists of all the characters we play.  We'd love to go back and add those cast lists for all our episodes, but we're too busy making new episodes for you to enjoy. So we're wondering if you could put together a list for us.

While listening through the episode, simply write the names of the crew members who have speaking parts on the episode, as well as any aliens (by name, if given) and miscellaneous characters. No Ensign is too insignificant!

Wouldn't you like to know every episode Lt. Greg is in? Of course you would! Just look at the list below to see which episodes still need a list!
If it's not crossed off, give a listen and add the list in the comments for that post(a list of the main cast are in the comments for this post).  If you don't know who plays someone, list the characters name anyway and we'll figure it out. You can do one episode, or many! Once you've done that, email us at social@theimprovisedstartrek.com so we have your email and cross out the episode from the list below. Everyone who participates will receive a link to an exclusive un-produced episode from the archives!
