Fascinating Captain!
19 July 2004 | by See all my reviews

Well, maybe I won't go that far. The documentary charts the beginnings of the Original Series through to its final season and closure in 1969. Although the information presented is interesting and sometimes thought-provoking, it's unlikely to be new to die-hard fans of the show.

For those who remember the show fondly all those years ago, but are not Trekkies (as they were then) the information provides a welcome insight into the casting and show's mentality. All of the major cast members get a good amount of air time to reminisce and tell stories about their experiences and the whole thing is presented in a harmless and affectionate light.

There are no real in-depth discussions of particular episodes, though several are touched upon, which was a shame, but the running time is only 60 mins so it's hard to expect too much detail.

Inevitably, the documentary touches on the morality of Star Trek and points at the many episodes which were written to highlight a particular aspect of the human condition or the state of the world at the time the show was aired. Admittedly, although most viewers will know this about Star Trek anyway, it amazes you more now to see how different a world it was in the late 60's from what we have today. The infamous inter-racial kiss scene is perhaps the most noteworthy example of just how different things were back then.

In summary then, the documentary won't really tell you much you don't already know, unless you are a complete Star Trek novice, but it is gentle and entertaining nonetheless.
