Trek Nation Review

Posted in Review's with tags , , , , , , on June 9, 2012 by getbent57

Months ago I talked about a documentary called Trek Nation.  Finley got to check it out.  Going to start off saying the only Star Trek show that I really like to watch was The Next Generation.  Saying that, you don’t have to like Star Trek or know any thing about the shows/movies to watch this documentary.  The base of the story is Rob Roddenberry getting to know more about this father Gene Roddenberry (the guy who made Star Trek) thought the fans and people he worked with.

It was an interesting watch.  Getting to see a candied look at famous people with out all the Hollywood take.  A nice story told my a down to earth guy taking to every day people and famous ones and they are all treated the same and how Star Trek brought them together.   This documentary was shot over may years.  Which I like as well.  Brings more of the story out.  Did like it but can’t see myself watching it again.  If you do get a change to see, do it even if you are not a fan of the Star Trek stuff.

TrekNation Was flipping though the TV channels the other day.  One of the channels I don’t get was playing a movie called Trek Nation.  Had to look up what it was about.  It turns out it is a documentary about the impact Star Trek and Gene Roddenberry have made on peoples though the eyes of this son, Eugene Roddenberry.  After watching the trailer (below), had to say it does look very interesting.  Will had to wait and see if it will air on a channel I get or wait for the DVD.  I know it will be out on DVD, just don’t know when.  All so there are some good clips on their YouTube Channel.
