Since first soaring onto TV screens in the 1960s, Star Trek has become one of the most beloved franchises of all time. Following up on his 2011 film The Captains, William Shatner recently directed and starred in the 5-part documentary mini-series "The Captains Close Up," which aired this year on the Epix premium cable channel.
Now, the original Captain Kirk, William Shatner, travels around the globe in this new five-part series to interview the elite group of actors who have portrayed the role of Starfleet Captain, giving fans an intimate and exclusive look at the pop culture phenomenon. Includes interviews with Sir Patrick Stewart, Scott Bakula, Kate Mulgrew, Avery Brooks and of course, William Shatner, himself. Chris Pine, the newest Enterprise Captain, turns the tables to interview the original Captain of the Enterprise, William Shatner, and the two "Captain James T. Kirks" compare notes about love, life and family. Plus, each half-hour episode also includes additional interviews with such Trek regulars as Jonathan Frakes, Walter Koenig, Michael Dorn, Rene Auberjonois, Rick Berman, Brannon Braga, Robert Beltran, Ron Moore, Terry Farrell, Nana Visitor and Ira Steven Behr, to name a few.
