Default "The Captains"

Anyone except me seen this documentary yet?

It debuted last Friday night on TV, and is available for online viewing on the epix website, I also think it was shown at Comic-con. I don't know since I wasn't there, but I know there was a panel discussion about the film involving Avery Brooks, William Shatner, and Patrick Stewart, since there was press about it.

I'd like to open discussion on this forum about it.

Basic information: William Shatner interviews all five Captains, or rather the actors who played them (Patrick Stewart, Avery Brooks, Kate Mulgrew, Scott Bakula, and Chris Pine). He is attempting to determine common themes or background that might have led them to playing the role of Captain on Star Trek. He elicits their thoughts on life, playing Captain, how it effected their personal lives, etc.
