Tickets are now available for its long-awaited, crowdfunded”Star Trek: Deep Space Nine” documentary movie,”What’s Left Behind.”

Launched in movie theaters Throughout the country for a night only around May 13, 2019, published by Fathom Occasions, the film presents a fascinating in-depth look at the past, present and potential of a series whose black, edgy take on Gene Roddenberry’s vision was often misunderstood when it premiered, but has grown to a beloved mainstay at the”Star Trek” franchise.  

When it first aired in January 1993,”DS9″ — since it’s generally shortened to — felt a little out of place from the”Trek” world. Another series set at the 24th century appeared superfluous, since”The Next Generation” was very successful. Added to which it would be put on a space station, that didn’t move, as opposed to a starship, so how would the characters have adventures exciting to sustain a collection? The response was to allow the experiences. Plus they did.

The relatively fresh, darker design of”DS9″ represented a break from convention to”Star Trek” and undoubtedly paved the way for a welcome, new style of darker, more nerdy literary — all you need to do is look at Ron Moore and”Battlestar Galactica.”

“DS9” showrunner Ira Steven established the fundraising campaign two years ago, and each single member of the cast results in the film, including Nana Visitor, Terry Farrell, Rene Auberjonois, Alexander Siddig and Andrew Robinson. \Regrettably however, Avery Brooks’ contribution is restricted to archive footage. 

The official preview provides a glance of what we could expect, such as remastered, high-definition transfers of the original movie footage, as well as newly enhanced visual-effects shots especially made for the documentary, and insights from the cast and crew, tears of joy, tears of despair, storyboards and so much more.

To determine which cinema is showing the documentary, just search on the Fathom Events website — plus you’ll be able to buy your tickets too.
