The movie starts out the way you think it will... but then it goes somewhere else entirely.
I thought he gained a great insight into the actors' personalities and how they brought their own personal experiences into the way they portrayed their characters.
This is a well done series of interspersed interviews between the Federation Captain actors: Shatner, Stewart, Brooks, Mulgew, Bakula and Pine.
It is a delightful documentary, and I was glad to see some of the well-known and well-loved faces again, as well as hear their backstories. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Kausik Datta
If you're a "Trekie" then you'll probably enjoy this flick. William Shatner gets a bit overbearing after a while which is why I didn't give it 5 stars. Read morePublished 1 month ago by R. Stempien
