Canadian acting legend William Shatner takes viewers inside the creation of Star Trek: The Next Generation, the bold attempt in 1986 to recreate the success of the original television series, in which Shatner played Captain James T. Kirk.
High-budget science fiction series derived mostly from original stories by top SF authors. The unrelated stories (two by John Varley) are re-set in a future Utopia, Betaville, which is being undermined by out-of-control technologies.
The year is 2045 and "tek," a highly addictive computer-based reality drug takes the users of the drug into a fantasy world. Jake Cardigan, a cop who was jailed on trumped charges, is hired by the mysterious Walter Bascom to fight the drug. Jake's first partner was Sid Gomez who was replaced by sexy Sam Houston; Nika is a computer wiz who works for Bascom; Cowgirl and Spaz are two "cyberpunks"; and Shelley Grout is a government agent trying to stop Jake.

A pity we lost this after only one season. Great cop show with a twist. The matrix sequences were the closest I've seen to a realisation of William Gibson except for the film Johnny Mnemonic. Good cast especially Maria del Mar and Natalie Radford. I hope William Shatner gets round to writing some more novels some time.
