SAN DIEGO – William Shatner said he always loved “Star Trek,” but he recently developed a new fondness for his fellow starship commanders.

Shatner came to Comic-Con in San Diego on Friday to discuss his new documentary, “The Captains,” in which he interviews the various actors who have played “Star Trek” captains. The film was set to premiere Friday night on the Epix TV channel.

Avery Brooks, who played Captain Sisko on “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” also scored the film.

Brooks and actor Scott Bakula appeared alongside Shatner at the panel, which was moderated by Comic-Con favorite Kevin Smith.

Shatner called the “Captains” documentary “a work of love” and said “it was a voyage of discovery” because he learned so much about himself during its making.

He interviewed each of the “Trek” actors in different settings, taking Bakula horseback riding and arm-wrestling Chris Pine on Los Angeles’ Melrose Avenue. Other captains appearing in the film are Patrick Stewart and Kate Mulgrew.

“I discovered traits among the six of us that I had no idea about, and I discovered things about myself,” said Shatner, 80. “That’s what my voyage was on this film.”

He’s also developing a new show about fan conventions because he has been so moved by “Trek” fandom. “People have taken ‘Star Trek’ into their hearts,” he said.

Gun-toting ‘Burn Notice’ actress an ‘ardent pacifist’

NEW YORK – Gun-toting vixen Fiona takes great pleasure in firing off guns and explosions in the TV series “Burn Notice.”

But the woman who plays her isn’t comfortable with that. Actress Gabrielle Anwar said she’s “adverse to any kind of weaponry and violence.”

The 41-year-old British-born actress describes herself as an “ardent pacifist” and said she has a “really hard time” with handling weapons that sometimes come from the military and may have been used in actual warfare.

The USA Network show, airing Thursdays at 9 p.m., describes Fiona as the “trigger-happy ex-girlfriend” of Michael Weston (Jeffrey Donovan), a spy stranded in Miami after he’s discredited or “burned.” Among those he turns to for help is Fiona — or Fi — a former IRA operative with a violent streak.

Anwar said she is “faking everything” she does with weapons. The show’s “amazing prop master” instructs her on how to look like she knows what she’s doing.

TV producer: Anthony will talk for $1 million

LOS ANGELES – A television producer said he has scored the first television interview with Casey Anthony, a $1 million deal arranged when he met her in a Palm Springs, Calif., hotel.

Al Taylor divulged few details about the alleged agreement, which he announced Wednesday by telephone on Dr. Drew Pinksy’s HLN show.

“I got a call early Tuesday morning, from a representative that said if you want to meet with her, be in this certain area in 15 minutes,” Taylor said on the show. “I was game. I showed up. I wasn’t for sure if I was going to meet her, and sure enough, she was there.”

Anthony, 25, was recently acquitted in the death of her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.

Taylor refused to name the hotel where the meeting allegedly took place or say who had accompanied Anthony to the meeting. When pressed for photos or video proving the meeting happened, he said he wasn’t allowed to bring a camera or cellphone and was searched before speaking with Anthony.

Taylor did say, however, that Anthony was concerned about two things: The $1 million he promised her and whether or not she would have to take a lie detector test.

Ohio-based Schalmo Productions has offered Anthony $5 million for an interview, a spokesman told Orlando’s FOX 35 on Thursday.

“I think it’s going to take that much for her to talk,” Jake Schalmo said.
