Very pleasent Sci-Fact documentary based on lead role of Star Trek, as he goes into space!
I grew up with Star Trek. I see the future as Sci FI always. I date an android for example lol. Anyway, very interesting little documentary showing William Shatner, the former Captain of the Star Ship Enterprise, preparing and discussing going into space. You get to see into Jeff Bezoses, Blue Origin space company more, and you get to see the view points of the idea of going into space too. If you like the idea of going into space this documentary is very good. A good way to burn 45 minutes, and also an eye opener of wonder about Shatner and his future as well seeing as hes much older these days. Im a firm believer the soul learns from this life experience and you use what youve known in a new reality somewhere else. Hes got nothing to worry about. It never ends life experience, and he will be happy when its all over and his energy returns. It will make him feel like Captain Kirk again for sure. Enjoy the documentary, it is warm and very light entertainment if your bored.

A personal perspective on Earth from a man who inspired many others to reach for the stars
In most situations, William Shatner can come across as very bombastic and larger than life. Yet in this documentary he seems, ironically, more "down to earth". An interesting view from a man who is so associated with space finally experiencing it for himself. An enjoyable watch.

What an experience
I enjoyed watching the experience William Shatner had, I felt moved by his reactions.

As most people I watched Star Trek with my dad and still watch all the movies today, if I had the chance would I go to space, hell YES in a heart beat...

The press here in the UK didn't show us much of Willian Shatner's trip, thank goodness this was recorded and shared.

Idolisation of Actors
It's an interesting watch, but they should've put helmet cams on all of the astronauts and had a lot more views of Earth. I also find it annoying that an actor should be so esteemed, mostly just because he played a fictional Captain Kirk. There are many millions of more deserving people who should get this experience, no offence to Shatner!

Beautiful and touching historic moment
I had tears in my eyes watching this. Bezos no matter what the press says he is giving persons an opportunity of a lifetime. As for Sir William, it must be a kind of full-circle moment. To be that natural playing a space captain and then in the future have the real opportunity to go to space is amazing. Thank you for sharing and wow just wow. I will watch again.

Rounds Up A Perfect Story
I thoroughly enjoyed seeing Shatner take this journey. It must be a perfect roundup to a Startrek fans journey with his character in movies to the real experience. I recall being inspired and daydreaming about space. The only downside was this Bezos philosophy of Earths waste going to space..... Grrr. We already have dangerous litter out there. Is it a form of more stupid? Well that aside nice movie doc. Congratulations to a 90 year old man. You did it!

Enjoyable
Enjoyable documentary, with the Shat appearing a tad more humble than usual. There's very likely a part of him that's sick to death of being so intrinsically linked to Star Trek, but Jeff Bezos' cardboard ST tricorder and communicator from his childhood are charming reminders that ST remains an enduring legacy for so many, and often the raison d'être for much technological progress. And to be fair, the Shat's journey from bemused observer/commentator to space-faring participant is intriguing and moving to watch.

Enjoyable to watch
A down to earth documentary on the man behind captain kirk, making his trip into space for real.

Enjoyable, although I felt a sadness that his beloved co stars such as Leonard Nimoy, James Doohan and DeForest Kelley have passed and didn't get to share the experience alongside him.
