The show is described as follows: "The Big Bang Theory's charming and nerdy group of scientists have spent 12 years finding love and experimenting with space-age theory until their lives are turned upside down by their favorite Star Trek character come to life! A hilarious romp through past, present, and future, this pop/rock musical spoofs the gang at their best, their worst, their most musical, and at their absolute wildest. BASINGA!"
