What Scripts Are For
24 August 2017 | by wirenwitSee all my reviews

I feel certain that the creators of "Star Trek Continues" have found it difficult to present new and original stories yet remain true to the setting and spirit of the original series. "What Ships Are For" is an excellent solution to this conundrum. The heavy-handed moralizing is not seriously presented, but as another nostalgic prop recovered from the original scripts.
