A documentary that Star Trek deserves
on 5 June 2013
The Star Trek franchise doesn't get the amount of documentary that it's 700+ hours of TV shows and movies could feed. This is one of those documentaries: a bold, well-researched, full-length profile of every one of the captain-protagonists of the canon Star Trek universe.
Differently than William Shatner's 2011 "The Captains", this documentary focuses exclusively on the characters, not the actors. Because of that I find it a nice pair to Shatner's film.
The downside, to me, is the addition of Christopher Pine's Kirk. Call me reactionary, but I think the "Abrams-verse" belongs somewhere else.
All in all, if you're a trekkie, you just can't afford not having this DVD in your collection.
