Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: What We Left Behind Producer Ira Steven Behr updated fans in a TrekMovie interview on the progress of the documentary.
According to Behr, the documentary is well underway, and they have “started a very rough assembly” of the film, sorting through “various interviews to identify the salient moments that work the best, and that is a pretty big job right there.”
The documentary will be ninety minutes in length after cutting it down from “one hundred-and-fifty hours of interviews plus everything else,” said Behr. “…There are going to be extras galore, like the Writer’s Room: Breaking Episode 1 of the mythical season 8. I really want to present all six hours of that to the fans.”
Behr had no luck getting Avery Brooks to take part in the project, as “[Brooks] has said everything he pretty much wanted to say and had to say about Deep Space Nine, and he didn’t feel he has anything important to contribute.”
Fans attending Star Trek Las Vegas will be filmed for the documentary. “We will be filming fans and hopefully non-fans to tell us how they feel about the show,” said Behr.
