Movie Probe: Chaos on the Bridge
Reviewed by Joe Crowe, @RevolutionSF, © 2015

Format: Movie
Review Date:   August 21, 2015
RevSF Rating:   8/10 (What Is This?)

This is almost an hour of discussion about the history of Star Trek: The Next Generation, in the form of interviews with the cast and creators of the show. A ton of people are interviewed from Patrick Stewart to Brannon Braga and more.

When the story cuts to Gene Roddenberry and other principals who have gone to Ten Forward in the sky, they do a neat thing with animation. They illustrate their dialogue and history with animated versions of each person in which everyone looks like black-and-white film noir and moves like characters in Jonny Quest. It looks pretty neat.

William Shatner is the interviewer, so he's the omniscient narrator and also an interested observer. He brings this whole project ever so closer to full Shatnition.

He's the Barbara Walters of the whole thing, and youíll see many cuts to Shatner nodding.

It goes by so fast. I feel like there are a thousand details the makers didnít have time for. But this will do fine for now. Iíll be anxiously awaiting the Deep Space Nine edition.
