This review is from: Captains [DVD] [2011] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This was a great purchase. I got it after seeing the ad in the Star Trek magazine, and was not disappointed. Bill Shatner is brilliant as always, and conducts some pretty honest interviews with all of the Captains from Star Trek. What was fabulous was the way they all questioned him as well as him questioning them. It was very insightful to learn about how they REALLY felt about portraying our fave Captains, and to hear of the ups and downs of gruelling filming schedules and pressures on their lives. The whole documentary is fascinating, but it was the last moment with Bill and Patrick (Stewart) that really caused my eyes to moisten more than they should. I've been an avid Trek fan all of my life, but have never heard either of them talk quite so frankly about their roles, nor express such personal feelings about the characters they portrayed. This DVD is an absolute must for any fan of Star Trek.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trekky and Shatner heaven, 26 Jan 2014

William Shatner is on another planet throughout this. It purports to be serious interviews but is alot of fun and says more about Shatner than his colleagues, in so many ways. Just enough to be an insight in to different lives, but not a serious or searching DVD. If you like Shatner, you'll love this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Better than expected, 25 July 2012

If youre a trekkie youll enjoy this look at the different captains in ST. The actors talking about the workload, what they wanted from the role etc - all very honest. Shatner is his usual humourous self but showed his serious side in discussing such topics as death(!) which he knows may be just around the corner. The only interview I found tedious was with Avery Brooks who played Sisko in DS9. He appears to have some sort of mental health issue (im not saying this in any jokey way) and tended to ramble or just play his piano. His interview just lasted a bit too long for me.

So all in all Id recommend this documentary to any ST fan.
