This is a documentary made up of interviews(from different times and places) with franchise(and outside ones who are fans) cast(albeit Shatner's absence is hard to ignore. They do talk about him, and it's almost all positive. Well, the other captains aren't there, either. I could go into the many smart, thoughtful people's names, but it would quickly become a list, and a lovefest), crew, scientists, etc.(they of course don't get equal time), show and film clips, zooms on stills, and historical footage. It goes into, well, see the title. It's 1 hour and 24 minutes without ads. According to what I read on here. I watched it with, and couldn't tell you for sure. For me, it was 117 min.

They discuss a lot of subjects. Diverse people working together to solve problems: women, Asians and African-Americans: right there next to white men, with responsibilities, receiving respect. The technology and how much of it we have today. Inspiring generations. Everyone has something to say and is interesting to listen to. It's edited well and goes into the right amount of detail. Here and there they dive deep into a certain special effect, scene or important conversation. And yet they manage to cover half a century's worth of series and movies. It doesn't really touch on J.J.'s reboot and its trilogy. So, you know, all of Star Trek is gone into. They're fairly honest, admitting when there were missteps.

This contains some disturbing content and two bleeped swears(you know exactly the words used). It spoils countless of the big plot points in the many hours of ST. Keep that in mind. I recommend this to anyone, Trekkie or otherwise. 8/10
