| Interesting, but with some very weird stuff
Most of this is very interesting but there are a few odd moments. Kate Mulgrew clearly is not very fond of William Shatner and there are indications that Jeri Ryan's veiled mentions of Mulgrew's true nature appear to have some foundation. (The woman grated on my nerves in everything she's done.) There is one part that is totally, absolutely bizarre. Shatner and Brooks are both extremely right-brained types, with Brooks being so esoteric that one wonders what universe he lives in. When you put him together with Shatner, who is prepped to fly off with the pixies and lose himself in every moment, it produces the weirdest improvised play acting I've ever seen. The two could have been totally stoned on acid for all we know. This is worth watching just to see these two lunatics riff off into the ether together. Overall, this is good stuff for any Trekker.
