They have created this listing to clarify their relationship to the traditional Trek Timeline:   http://bit.ly/sisyphustime .

It is not yet clear that this well retain a page rather than going under Comedy Shorts.

They also have live on stage offering for those who live in the area of Chicago.  See  http://paxtonconfiguration.blogspot.com/2013/02/final-frontier-of-fun-alliterations.html

"Three Long Days" from Improvised Star Trek. On March 23, 2019, they performed live on the Cards Against Humanity Comedy Stage at C2E2 in Chicago, IL. This is online on Youtube as a an audio recording with a slideshow of the performance: sort of halfway between an audio drama and a film! Improving their project management strategies causes the crew of the Sisyphus more problems than they can count on their many limbs. https://youtu.be/8kewURRv0wo (47:04).
