Somehow, we missed this cool new teaser trailer for William Shatner’s documentary The Captains when it debuted a few days back. Better late than never, though – particularly when it comes to the greatest of all Star Trek captains (yes, we said greatest. Did Picard beat the Kobayashi Maru test at Starfleet Academy? We didn’t think so.).
Now that we’ve cleared that up, Epix will be unveiling The Captains at this year’s Comic-Con on Friday, July 22nd. Is there a more fitting venue for this film to debut than Comic-Con? If there is, it hasn’t occurred to us. The film will be the centerpiece of Shatnerpalooza, a celebration of all things Shatner. Other exciting Shatnerpalooza events include a live panel from Comic-Con featuring the man himself and moderated by Kevin Smith, a live Q&A open to online viewers who can’t be at the con, and airings of some of his lesser known films.
Hailed as Shatner’s “final farewell to Star Trek”, The Captains looks to be a good time – and a fitting way for Shatner to say goodbye to the franchise and fans who made him an icon.
So, check out the clip below and set your DVR for Friday, July 22nd at 8:00 PM EDT. If you don’t have Epix as part of your cable or satellite programming, you can also catch the film on EpixHD.com.
