Spock 'n' Roll: Local Star Trek Band

Five guys in Star Trek uniforms are hardly a surprising sight at Gen Con, which will bring more than 40,000 gamers and geeks downtown this month. But the Trekkies from Five Year Mission, an Indy-based band that will play the convention on August 17, are boldly going where no nerds have gone before: writing a song about each episode of the original, 1960s Star Trek series. That’s 80 episodes in all, which the band is dividing into five 16-track albums, including the already-released Year One and Year Two, plus an EP with seven tunes about the classic episode “The Trouble with Tribbles.” (Fans voted to determine which Tribbles track will appear on Year Three, scheduled to drop in November.)
