The “Devil in the Dark” episode was originally written by Gene L. Coon and aired in 1967 for the original Star Trek series. Director Joy E. DeLyria brings to life the Federation starship USS Enterprise, under the command of Captain James T. Kirk. The Enterprise is sent to the pergium mining colony on planet Janus VI to investigate reports of a strange creature that recently killed 50 miners with a strong corrosive substance and is destroying equipment.
The curiosity of Kirk’s First Officer, Science Officer Spock, is aroused by a spherical object on the desk of the mine supervisor, Chief Engineer Vanderberg, who explains that it is one of thousands of silicon nodules found in the mine, but is of no commercial value. Soon, another guard is killed, and a circulation pump, vital to the colony’s main reactor, is stolen. Join Hello Earth Productions to see the exciting conclusion of “Devil in the Dark.”
Bring your family, sun loving pets, and friends (alien buddies included.) Cushions for comfort are recommended. Although free of charge, the company happily accepts donations during performances.
