Plot Summary
Amateur filmmakers and self-professed science fiction geeks Mark (Eric McCormack) and Robert (Rafer Weigel) cannot help parsing their adult lives into a series of "Star Trek" references. When they randomly meet their childhood idol, former "Star Trek" star William Shatner (as himself), the actor quickly becomes their friend and mentor despite being a vulgar, self-effacing drunk. As time passes, Mark and Robert come to learn the difference between fantasy and reality.
