Star Trek Live is a Star Trek-themed interactive stage show developed by CBS Consumer Products and Mad Science. Based on the 2009 film Star Trek, it ran at performing arts centers across the United States, including at Cape Kennedy, beginning in 2010.

The premise of the show involved audience members playing the roles of Starfleet cadets under the tutelage of Captain James T. Kirk and Spock aboard the USS Enterprise. The Enterprise, as well as Earth, comes under attack, and it is up to the cadets (the audience) to help save the day. The show, which lasted sixty minutes, combined special effects, audience interaction, and an exploration of real space-age technology.[1]
