| fun William Shatner
William Shatner presents a light-hearted documentary about Star Trek and its influence on today's technological world and social justice. He does it with a nudge and a wink. The advances include interstellar space travel, cell phones, racial sexual equality, smaller computers, medical devices, virtual reality and so on and so on. He also ropes in Jonathan Frakes for the next generation gang as well as Walter Koenig and Kate Mulgrew.

It's a lot of Shatner having fun. It takes a fond look back at some of the old concepts. It looks at the new TV shows. It's at a time when all the shows have been canceled but Shatner still looks back fondly on the original's optimism. This is very much for the fans. It's nice to see Shatner camping it up as always.
