Even though it is made by the same team behind the 2016 documentary, right from the start you can tell this new docuseries is coming at the franchise with an entirely different take, although one familiar to fans of some other docuseries. With a quick overview of Star Trek history, a playful narrated introduction by TNG veteran Gates McFadden, and a series of rapid-fire cuts of various Trek celebs laughing, you immediately can see that The Center Seat is going to have some fun while it tries to scale the enormity of this 55-year-old franchise. This time The Nacelle Company is approaching Star Trek with the same whimsical-yet-meticulous style of their popular Netflix docuseries The Toys That Made Us and The Movies That Made Us.
