Really enjoyed it except for Avery Brooks portion. He seemed, to me, to be high on something other than life—

Without Jellico and Harriman this show is an empty farce. Jellico was the only one of the bunch who actually seemed to know what a captain is supposed to be doing. Which of the other captains would have put military discipline ahead of titillation and ordered Troi back into proper uniform.

And Captain Harriman, who accomplished what a thousand Klingon and Romulean captains had never been able to accomplish. He got Kirk killed. That alone should put him on the top of the pyramid. Kang sure couldn't do it.

Re: Without Jellico and Harriman this show is an empty farce...

And of course, they forgot the real, very first female Captain of the Enterprise... Captain Rachel Garrett of the Enterprise-C of Yesterday's Enterprise

More info at http://en.memory-alpha.org/wiki/Rachel_Garrett and Tracia O'Neil's Imdb page

And after I got Kirk killed... I got to do all those porn jokes on "Spin City!"

Technically, Picard got Kirk killed. He couldn’t just leave him alone in the Nexus to enjoy his retirement.

That’s actually how he really is, he’s one of the hard core artsy types. It’s crazy how he could play the tough guy so well.

Re: Technically, Picard got Kirk killed. He couldn’t just leave him alone in the Nexus to enjoy his retirement.

Sorry, fj, Kirk didn't retire to the Nexus... Captain Harriman's ineptitude got Kirk killed by explosive decompression just as the Nexus energy ribbon passed by--

Yeah, fj, after I found out that jump didn't scare me... you think I could have enjoyed my so-called retirement? No way!

So, fj, if you cannot say something that is Star Trek Cannon correct... then don't say anything at all--

It wasn't his hard core artsy fartsy persona I saw... it was someone who been smoking more than tobacco!

including uber pc actress’s Janeway kills the whole documentary.

Her character was PC, her real life was left, and she played the character like she played Mrs. Columbo. IOW BADLY.

No, longterm, Spock knew he had a "special" friend... back in the Original Series--

He's... gay, too, Spock!

What was her solution to everything? Eject the warp core and make tea.

Sorry. Not following that one. I know George T. is gay...which of the three that you show here is also gay?

Was just joking above. To the best of my knowledge, neither Bill, Leonard or DeForest swang that way... but Zachary Quinto, the new Spock, has come swinging out of the closet to beat the band!

mccoy? his wife would find that surprising.

If the new series reboots khan, this time spock should stay dead. That nuSthpock “actor” has ruined the series.

I’m willing to stretch believability as far as Troi and Seven of Nine were willing to stretch their uniforms.

oh great. The new Star Trek has a gay spock and a communist Scotty. Who does the casting of these movies sheesh?

Zachary Quinto does a good job at Spock but his personal life just takes the spot light away from the movie. It used to be in the 50's and 60's where movie stars tried very hard to avoid taking the spot light away from their characters they played in the movie.

They should just drop the whinny weasel communist Simon Pegg that plays Scotty he is just way to annoying.
