Somewhat random musings....
9 July 2017 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

In recent years, William Shatner has make several documentaries through which he and others talk about how "Star Trek" has effected them, society, science and more. "The Captains", "Reflections on Spock" and other documentaries have starred him as he interviews many famous folks and in his latest, "The Truth is in the Star"...he interviews A LOT of folks. While the general theme is the future, the documentary really goes all over the place as he interviews a huge Trek prop collector (Be Stiller), actors who have played guest spots on the various Trek series (such as Jason Alexander, Whoopi Goldberg and Stephen Hawking) and a variety of others...astronauts, scientists and the like. All of these interviews, though not obviously related, tend to be very interesting...especially since Mr. Shatner's style has gotten a bit quieter, a bit friendlier and a bit more 'nice'. Overall, well worth seeing.
