Have to admit, I just saw “The Captains”. It was done from an artists perspective and was very entertaining. And informative. ( I would’ve liked to have heard from Morgan Woodward (Ron Tracy) – he was a captain after all and they talked other people who weren’t even that)….That aside, I think even Shatner’s detractors would be surprised. Shatner is kind of becoming a historical documentarian of the property. And is hitting areas others haven’t addressed or thought of. I mean, he really is. I look forward to this.

Hi Guys, I hope some of you upload this show somewhere so your “family memebers” in Oz can enjoy the fun! Looks like a hoot!

Ahh, Bill, I could tell you what Star Trek meant to me as a little 2 year-old remembering the old Black and White television screen back in the late sixties, and I remember seeing the Fesarius, Commander Balok’s ship, and I was transfixed…hooked, yes a TREKKER, never a TREKKIE.

I really don’t recall where the word “TREKKIE,” came from. I am a TREKKER, Jim, not a TREKKIE…lol.

I think it was Gene Roddenberry who said he invented the word ‘Trekkie.’ I’ve been thinking about Terminators and who their unstoppable Trek cousins might be… Wouldn’t it be awesome if hollywood made a movie titled Terminators vs Trekinators?

Hopefully its not totally self serving like his Captains doc. Even when interviewing the other actors he just ended up talking about himself the whole time.

I want to be Bill when I grow up.

My wife and I got to thank him when we got to go to his Horse show and few months back. He told us about this then and we have been waiting ever since. Cannot wait to the Vegas Con.
