    I enjoyed the first movie/doc. I appreciate Shattner’ s ability to keep the Star Trek family together, in his own way. We fans love the added footage.

    I wonder, are these new interviews or extended editions of the originals? I’m just wondering whether we might get a coherent Avery Brooks this time, or whether we’ll get another bizarro piano man interview.

  • SJStar

    I wonder, if you ever know what your talking about? (except spin and speculative crap) Eh. dogpoo?

  • Mike

    lol I guess… See, I did watch the previous set of interviews, and Avery Brooks was out of it. I’m not alone in thinking that… and probably not in questioning a repeat of the performance…

    But, if you want to reopen a discussion of all the things you don’t get, we can… Shall we start with your fundamentally lacking understanding of the Prime Directive?

    I asked a question I legitimately would like to know the answer to, and that is whether these are new interviews or larger cuts of the old ones… But, you can have whatever fit you want… One thing I know: Your fit probably is not going to be about Star Trek, since you’ve been made to look like a fool on that footing.

    So… keep up the good work!

    Oh, yeah, that was weird. Could it be that he was high or something? If there’s an interview with him again, I too am hoping that the contents of it will be more intelligible. I’m looking forward to this one.

  • John (not McCain)

    Avery Brooks always seems to me, whether in interviews or in character, that he just doesn’t give a damn about anybody who isn’t Avery Brooks. So yeah, it could be the weed.
