The Captains ( – an Epix Original Documentary produced and directed by William Shatner will have its world premiere on July 22nd at 8pm ET on the multiplatform premium network, EPIX and For those without EPIX a free trial of will be offered (more information coming soon).

Featuring in-depth interviews and vintage Star Trek footage with actors Patrick Stewart (Captain Jean-Luc Picard), Kate Mulgrew (Captain Kathryn Janeway), Avery Brooks (Captain Benjamin Sisko), Scott Bakula (Captain Jonathan Archer), and Chris Pine (Captain James T. Kirk, Star Trek 2009), The Captains was shot on location in Toronto, London, New York, Princeton and Los Angeles, where Shatner could capture his fellow Captains and peers in their home environments. The HD film exposes the Captains in all their “humanity”, stripped down to the barest of earth-bound qualities and heavenly thoughts. It offers a rare and candid glimpse into the inner sanctum of each actor. The film is grand in its sincerity and reflective of the passion and compassion each Captain demonstrated over the last 45 years on both small and large screens. The Captains is all about the working challenges and personal rewards each actor garnered from the groundbreaking role of Starship helmer.

As the only female Captain in the TV series, Kate Mulgrew is emphatic that acting is pivotal to her happiness in life and that, indeed, that is evident from her 35-year career. Shatner, too, takes in a deep breath of pure joy when it comes to the acting bug.
“The acting is absolutely central to my happiness, to my well being and to my life. If that is erroneously or wrongly criticized, I really resent it.”
— Kate Mulgrew on the importance she places on acting
