We have been waiting since early 2017 for this day to come, and we are at the finish line for the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine documentary “What We Left Behind” to be released.
Made by showrunner and director Ira Steven Behr, “What We Left Behind” was successfully funded via crowdsourcing with over 9.5K backers, and features the first fully remastered HD footage from the show. Today, the trailer was finally dropped, and we have a better idea of what we can expect from the film.
Check out the trailer below:
IGN got the scoop about what to expect on the DVD:
- The film presents a fascinating in-depth look at the past, present, and future of a series whose dark, edgy take on Gene Roddenberry’s vision was often misunderstood when it premiered, but has grown into a beloved mainstay in the Star Trek franchise.
- Featuring extensive new interviews with the cast and crew of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine as well as newly remastered HD footage from the television series, What We Left Behind also focuses on the original writers of the series as they craft a brand-new episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, developing what would be the eighth-season premiere if the show were to return to the air today.
- Following the feature presentation, a taped roundtable discussion with directors Ira Steven Behr, David Zappone, and the film’s producers will provide audiences with a comprehensive look at the making of the film, the show’s fans and the series’ ongoing appeal to Trekkers of all ages. Fathom attendees will also receive an exclusive double-sided poster with the theatrical poster art for What We Left Behind on one side, and an original illustration from the film on the other. (Quantities limited, while supplies last.)
Fathom Events is bringing What We Left Behind to more than 800 movie theaters in the U.S. on Monday, May 13, 2019. They will be available to purchase starting on April 12.
