In this documentary I found the best parts of it were when he was talking about his own career and looking back and when the person he was interviewing was asking him questions too. You get a good sense from the interviews the personal sacrifices that the "Captains" on each Trek show had to make and how their jobs were certainly different than the rest of the cast. The highlights were his conversation style interview with Patrick Stewart at Stewart's home as well as his interview with Kate Mulgrew in a theater in New York City.
Overall though the best part of this documentary is Shatner himself. As he describes his long life and career and even discusses his thoughts on the end of life and his closeness to that end. That gave the documentary a slightly sad and nostalgic feel to it.
It felt in some ways almost as if he were saying farewell just slightly. I say just slightly because as you will see when watching that Shatner has a zest for living that few his age can muster. He truly is a marvel to watch and I wish him many more years. If you are a fan of Trek and of Shatner then this documentary is a must see.
You will enjoy it immensely. Start your free trial.

The Captain’s Daughter
I have not had a chance to attend a Trek Convention but now I am so motivated to attend I can hardly wait!! William Shatner gave me a look into not only the careers and lives of the Actors who have been Captain of the Enterprise, but also of how their lives and others have been affected by their roles, both good and challenging.
The interviews, the transparency of the Actors and the realism of feelings they displayed was was awesome!!!! I was glued to the show the entire time. I commend all of you for your craft that is so powerful that can pull me away into a good place as I watch you. I did not realize the scope of your personal sacrifices until I saw this film.
I appreciate your commitment and I hope that life treats you kind because of them.
