The upcoming ‘Star Trek’ documentary ‘What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’ just released the first image from the supposed eighth season of ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.’ Check out the image above!
The image comes from one of the animated segments and features Ezri Dax, who has become a Starfleet captain. It should be noted that her uniform is different than the Starfleet uniform used during the seventh season of ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.’
‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’ showrunner Ira Steven Behr pulled together a team featuring four key writers from the original series – Ronald D. Moore, Robert Hewitt Wolfe, Hans Beimler, and René Echevarria. The group was tasked with developing with the plot for the theoretical eighth season of ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.’
The world premiere of ‘What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’ is set to happen at Destination Star Trek in the Birmingham, UK. Blu-ray copies will be released to backers before the end of the year, and will include select scenes from ‘Star Trek: Deep Space Nine’ in HD!
Behr released an update for backers of the project recently, saying:
“Well, for starters, we’ve got over 100 hours of new interviews with cast and crew to go through, plus fan submissions, archival materials, animations, audition tapes, convention footage, and over 170 broadcast episodes…endless possibilities! And sure, you SAY you’d be down to see a 4-hour documentary, but really that’s just excessive even for us. Carefully and artfully assembling everything down into a reasonable length film (with a story of its own!) is an even longer process.”
She continued, saying:
“The good news for you in all of this is that we’re continuing to find new elements and stories to include as we go along, and we’re committed to making the best stand-alone film we can, however long that takes. (And, suffice to say, we’ve got HOURS of bonus content to release later on down the line!)”
