We are elated to share the THEATRICAL release trailer and news for Ira Steven Behr's Star Trek: Deep Space Nine documentary, What We Left Behind.
Just last month, it was announced that SHOUT! Factory had picked up the worldwide distribution rights for the docu, and that plans for "multiple format release" were in play.
What We Left Behind is co-directed by DS9 showrunner Behr and David Zappone (For The Love of Spock). It boasts some of the most in-depth interviews with cast and crew from the series, as well as a look at the third Star Trek series in HD, as promised by Behr back in December of 2018.
SHOUT! Studios VP Marketing Michael Ribas said in a statement to Deadline:
"Deep Space Nine has a passionate fanbase—as shown by the successful crowdfunding campaign that brought this movie to life—and we're thrilled share their love of and dedication to the show by bringing the What We Left Behind to an even wider audience."
Fathom Events will be bringing the docu to theaters for "one night only", on May 12th. Tickets will go on sale for the event on April 12th.
"Deep Space Nine is described as 'dark,' 'edgy,' and 'the black sheep' of the Star Trek family – a show that did not fit in Gene Roddenberry's vision of the future. 20 years after it left the airwaves, fans all over the world continue to watch Deep Space Nine with the same affection they feel for the other Star Trek series.
Through extensive interviews with cast and creators, show footage presented in HD for the first time anywhere, and brand-new animated storyboards showing what could have been and what still might be, directors Ira Steven Behr (showrunner of the original series) and David Zappone (Star Trek docs The Captains and For the Love of Spock), bring you What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, an in-depth look at this beloved show, its fans, and its ongoing appeal to Trekkies of all ages.
This one-night event will include an exclusive two-sided poster (11×17, limited quantities) as well as a roundtable discussion on the making of the documentary."
