The documentary What We Left Behind: Looking Back at ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’ will arrive on Blu-ray, DVD and digitally Aug. 6 from Shout! Factory.
The film, which was financed through an Indiegogo campaign, examines the third live-action “Star Trek” series, “Deep Space Nine,” which ran from 1993 to 1999 and stood out among the franchise as the only show set on a space station as opposed to a ship of exploration.
Series showrunner Ira Steven Behr co-directs with David Zappone and interviews cast members and behind-the-scenes crew to get their memories of making the show and insights about its legacy.
Behr also brings back some of the show’s original writers to imagine what a new episode of the show would look like 20 years after the series ended.
In addition, clips from the series have been remastered in high-definition for the first time.
ShoutFactory.com is offering an exclusive special edition of the Blu-ray, limited to 1,500 copies, which will have a special second Blu-ray disc containing a 50-minute roundtable with the documentary filmmakers, and a “Musical Reunion” featurette with composers Dennis McCarthy and Kevin Kiner. The $29.95 limited edition can be preordered here.
