Captain Kirk vs The Six Million Dollar Man
6 June 2012 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

This is a special episode to see because William Shatner (Josh Lang)is here as a astronaut with a problem. He's got a special gift and it's up to Steve Austin to help him.

William Shatner is playing with his typical emotions as seen in Star Trek the series running from 1966-1969. It's also made just before they started with the second Star Trek series (1973-1974) and just before the big break through of William in the classic Kingdom Of The Spiders (1977) and of course the flicks of Star Trek starting from 1979 until now.

It do has a few nice moments again with stock footage from outer space. Steve doesn't need that much bionic powers and it's even Josh who can break him down with his powers. Also strange to see it doesn't has a happy ending. Not as strong as other episodes but surely one to watch due William's appearance.
