It’s been 45 years since the first series of Star Trek appeared on television sets. Though the original series staring William Shatner as James T. Kirk only lasted for 3 seasons the show has turned out to be one of the most well known show around the world. In the 45 years since it’s airing, Star Trek has had 4 different television series as well as 11 feature films with a 12 in the process of being made. What made these shows so popular and long lasting is a combination of stories, effects, the ship, but most importantly it was the Captains that helped make the shows so much fun to watch. The Captains is a film by William Shatner that gives a insight into what it took to become a Starfleet Captain, what it took out of the actor/actress while being the Captain, and giving a behind the scenes look of what it was to be a captain on Star Trek right from the people that filled the roles.
