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. 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, What We Left Behind will be available August 6, 2019 on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital, as well as a Shout! 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.

This is about as deep as you can get with a Deep Space Nine documentary. 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.

    Star Trek: Deep Space Nine first aired in January 1993, well over a year after the death of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry. When compared to The Original Series and The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine was written off as too "dark," and "edgy," "the black sheep" of the Star Trek family, a show that did not fit Roddenberry's vision of the future. Though polarizing within the franchise, the show pushed narrative boundaries for seven seasons and gained a rabid cult following. Now, over twenty years after the series ended, fans and critics 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. What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, takes a detailed look at this historic series and consider the reasons Deep Space Nine went from a family outcast to a Star Trek mainstay.
