Life beyond Star Trek features............

......................you know, the ones on the Remastered DVD Sets.

Why did Shatner choose to bore us to death with all that shit about his horses ?
Really "Bill", at least try a leg and be interested in the hand that fed you very well for nearly 50 years.

Nimoy, Takei, Koenig, Nicholls all spoke highly and lovingly about Star Trek and to see Shatner ponsing about on his trusty steeds annoyed me immensely.

OK your not really James Tiberius Kirk, but at least pretend that at one time you were proud to be.

James T, I loved you as Captain of the Enterprise and you were and still are, the greatest Captain of all, but that little extra was too much to take

What's with all the Shatner bashing lately, did he make a few more million doing something?

Re: Life beyond Star Trek features............

Is it really that big of a deal? He has talked and written so much about Trek already...maybe he figured that people might enjoy hearing about something else for a change, something important in his life that he enjoys?

I'm not interested in horses, but does he really have anything new to say about Trek at this point? Do any of the actors from the show?

Re: Life beyond Star Trek features............

Look. Say you're producing the DVD extras. Do you want him sitting around, recalling olden times, or doing something visually dramatic, like riding horses? Besides which, it's obviously the man's passion, so let's all give it a pass.

I agree that it wasn't that interesting a feature, but I also agree with the poster who said that so much has been written and said about Star Trek that there really isn't any new stories for the folks involved to tell.

Now, have you seen Leonard Nimoy's featurette for Life Beyond Star Trek on season two? I'll be interested to hear your views on that. Personally, I found it more interesting, but that's only because I like photography more than horses.

The man has written two books about his "Star Trek Memories." That should be enough for anybody.

It certainly is, especially since his ghost-writer googled them all.

I don't hold his passion for horses against him, but it DIDNT belong as an feature on a DVD.

I don't see why it was any more irrelevant than Nimoy's passion for photography. These were short documentaries on these actors and their lives after Star Trek, of which these two preoccupations (horses and photography) are not insignificant.

I havent watched the Nimoy photography one yet, but it would be as out of place as Shatners horses on a Star Trek DVD, in my opinion of course.
