What was "The Captains" about?
 
It said star trek on it and captains and it apparently was a movie not a tv show so I watched it on Netflix but there was no enterprise.

They also weren't in space.

It had all the captains though.

There was Captain Picard, Captain Janeway, Captain Sisko, and that's it.

It seemed to be like about there philosophy.

For some reason though the main focus of the film was on this fat, red, swollen guy who seemed completely drunk named Bill. He looked kind of like Santa Clause just without the red suit or reindeer or presents.

He was so wasted and out of touch in one section he is sleeping in a box in the nyc streets, what a clown.

Fortunately Captain Janeway arrived in time to save him from breaking vagrancy laws and invited him into her own personal broadway theater. I don't know why though.

If you've seen this movie do you know what the deal with the fat guy is?

There was also this other guy I think his name was Scott Archer never saw him before wonder where they found him. He had starbucks and was sharing it with the fat guy so maybe he felt bad for him and wanted to give him a drink or something so they sat down and chatted while they drank their starbucks.

Is this what you guys meant when you mean J J Abrams is taking Star Trek in the wrong direction? If it didn't have Sisko, Janeway, and Picard in it and didn't say Star Trek on the cover there's no way to tell this is actually a Star Trek movie.

I hope J J Abrams does a better job for the sequel.

What would be really cool is if they brought William Shatner to reprise his role as Captain Kirk for the next one (if there is even going to be a next one this film seemed to be a flop too me it wasn't even sci fi) is he even still alive?

J J Abrams I'm talking to you bring William Shatner as Captain Kirk, bring back Captain Janeway, Captain Sisko, and Captain Picard, for the sequel and you are going to have a blockbuster on your hands.

^ :guffaw:

It was about 113 minutes.

Poor Avery Brooks. He is either nuts or he got the short end of the editing stick with his sequence in that film.

Nope.

Also wrong forum, but I'll do the GTD mods a favor and not send this over.
