We're off to explore space, the final frontier, with the ten classic Star Trek movies. There are the great ones with the Borg, the whales, and Khaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan!!!!!!!!!!! There are also the not-as-great ones like when William Shatner directed and had Captain Kirk face off against God.
Every weeknight last week and this week, SBS VICELAND has been airing a Star Trek film. From Wednesday night the Next Generation team take over, with Patrick Stewart and all your ST:TNG favourites.
