The Star Trek: Deep Space Nine documentary, titled “What We Left Behind” is now available on Blu-ray, DVD, and 4K. The documentary took a look back at the series to celebrate its 25th anniversary.
The film features interviews and behind-the-scenes stories with the original cast and crew, and was helmed by Ira Steven Behr and David Zappone. There’s also footage from the show that was remastered for the first time ever in High Definition.
When compared to the original series and The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine was written off as too “dark,” “edgy,” and “the black sheep” of the Star Trek family; a show that did not fit creator Gene Roddenberry’s vision of the future. Now, over 20 years later, fans all over the world are rediscovering Deep Space Nine and embracing the show with an enthusiasm rivaling the affection they feel for any other Star Trek series. Critics are even calling the show the “jewel in the crown” and the best of the Star Trek franchise. A devoted sci-fi fan might rightly ask themselves; “What the hell happened?” What We Left Behind: Looking Back At Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, takes a detailed look at this historic series, including brand-new interviews with members of the cast and crew, and considers the reasons Deep Space Nine went from a family outcast to a Star Trek mainstay.
