  1. I just watched the Netflix William Shatner documentary ‘Chaos on the Bridge’ which looked at an ailing Roddenberry and the production of ‘StarTrek the Next Generation’ which had more drama and backstabbing politics behind the scenes than in the show itself. Could it be that the production politics still continues, one thing though, the least the producers can do is give a guest star role for William Shatner, he is always feeling left out.
