Star Trek: Enterprise information

Star Trek The CaptainsThe Captains premieres this Friday, July 22nd, on Epix. It’s William Shatner’s new documentary in which he chats with the Star Trek TV captains (Patrick Stewart, Avery Brooks, Kate Mulgrew, and Scott Bakula) and Chris Pine, Captain Kirk from the latest movie.

Here’s the official description:

The Captains, is a feature length documentary that “boldly goes where no man has gone before,” giving viewers an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at one of the most durable and profitable franchises in entertainment history, and the men and women who made the Star Trek brand an international phenomenon since 1966. Written and directed by William Shatner, The Captains chronicles Shatner’s quest to explore the impact that Star Trek has had on his life. Why, in spite of his voluminous stage, screen, and television credits, as well as his numerous Emmys and Golden Globe Awards, does one role in his career loom so large that it nearly eclipses all others? To find the answer, Shatner enlists the help of the elite group of actors who also assumed the mantle of Starship Captain. In the process, coupling their own unique stories with their compelling insights, five Captains give Shatner a better understanding of his own life and solve this “mystery” once and for all.

While you're out shopping in stores today, you could see some of the talent from cancelled TV shows. Others may be hard at work on shows like 90210, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Samantha Who?, and Damages. Those keeping busy include William H. Macy (Sports Night), Rob Thomas, Ken Marino and Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars), Martin Starr (Freaks and Geeks), Adam Scott (Tell Me You Love Me), Jane Lynch (Help Me Help You), Lizzy Caplan (The Class), Kristin Chenoweth (Pushing Daisies), David E. Kelley (Boston Legal), Matt Lanter (Commander in Chief), Tracy Pollan (Family Ties), Marissa Jaret Winokur (Stacked), Barbara Eden (I Dream of Jeannie), Dean McDermott (Tori & Dean: Inn Love), Rena Sofer (Just Shoot Me!), Connor Trinneer (Star Trek: Enterprise), Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood), Billy Zane (Twin Peaks), Kevin Sorbo (Hercules: The Legendary Journeys), and Wendy Diamond (Greatest American Dog). Remember on Bewitched when Dick York was replaced by Dick Sargent? Well, the same thing's about to happen to another Sam, this time on ABC's Samantha Who? sitcom. Apparently Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood) is so busy working on FX's Damages that he's not available to reprise his role as Christina Applegate's ex-boyfriend, Funk. As a result, they're recasting the role with Billy Zane (Twin Peaks). Geez, don't you think this is messing with poor Samantha's noggin a bit much?
<em>Star Trek:</em> Another Original TV Show Castmember to be in J.J. Abrams Movie

Star Trek: Another Original TV Show Castmember to be in J.J. Abrams Movie

December 11, 2008
One of the most-anticipated movies of 2009 is J.J. Abrams' new Star Trek movie, a prequel to the original 1960s series. Fans have been looking forward to the return of Leonard Nimoy as an aged Mr. Spock. Now, another original castmember is also returning. Of course, you'll never see her. The original Star Trek TV show was created by Gene Roddenberry and follows the U.S.S. Enterprise. The starship is commanded by Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner) and his first mate, Mr. Spock (Leonard Nimoy). Kirk's close friend is the cantankerous Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Leonard McCoy (DeForest Kelley). Other personnel include Chief Engineer Scott (James Doohan), helmsman Sulu (George Takei), communications officer Uhura (Nichelle Nichols), navigator Chekov (Walter Koenig), head nurse Chapel (Majel Barrett), and yeoman Rand (Grace Lee Whitney). As anyone familiar with modern culture knows, the series was cancelled after three seasons on NBC but found new life in syndication. Eventually, this new popularity spawned an animated series, four more live-action series, ten feature films, and a slew of books, toys, magazines, and other licensed products.
