What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine beams on Blu-ray in August

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine dared to mess a bit with the Star Trek formula. Instead of a crew on a spaceship named The Enterprise as done for the original series, the feature films and The Next Generation, viewers would be taken to a space station. The series was a hit when it debuted in 1993 and lasted seven seasons. What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine is documentary that digs deep into the show and its impact. The documentary is coming out in August with plenty of bonus features for fans of the series. Here’s the press release from Shout! Factory:

From directors Ira Steven Behr (Star Trek: Deep Space Nine showrunner) and David Zappone (producer of For the Love of Spock, The Captains) comes the critically acclaimed documentary feature What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

Factory exclusive two-disc Special Edition Blu-ray.

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.

Both the Blu-ray and the DVD of What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine come loaded with nearly ninety minutes of bonus features, including over a dozen deleted scenes, behind-the-scenes featurettes with the cast and crew, a discussion of the HD restoration process with the producers, and more! The Special Edition Blu-ray also includes the featurette A Musical Reunion with Composers Dennis McCarthy and Kevin Kiner, as well as a 50-minute roundtable discussion with directors Ira Steven Behr, David Zappone, and the film’s producers that provides 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.
