Synopsis: The Captains is a feature length documentary film written and directed by William Shatner. The film follows Shatner as he interviews the other actors whom have portrayed Starship captains within the illustrious science-fiction franchise.

Reaction: Maybe not as in-depth as you might hope for, but it does give some interesting insight into some of the actors who have sat in the big chair over the years.

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Right after the scene showing Captain Sisco on the bridge of the original Enterprise, there's a shot of Voyager dropping out of warp speed. The shot must be running backwards as no ship has even been shown to warp aft end forward.
