Thank you Captains!!! and KUDOS to you Mr. Shatner
11 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

I have been a fan of all Star Trek Franchises. This Film AMAZING!! I have not had a chance to attend a Trek Convention but now I am so motivated to attend I can hardly wait!! William Shatner gave me a look into not only the careers and lives of the Actors who have been Captain of the Enterprise, but also of how their lives and others have been affected by their roles, both good and challenging. The interviews, the transparency of the Actors and the realism of feelings they displayed was was awesome!!!! I was glued to the show the entire time. I commend all of you for your craft that is so powerful that can pull me away into a good place as I watch you. I did not realize the scope of your personal sacrifices until I saw this film. I appreciate your commitment and I hope that life treats you kind because of them. Mr. Shatner, LIVE LONG AND PROSPER!!!
