Shout! Factory has taken the wraps off the details for the Blu-ray and DVD releases for the Deep Space Nine documentary What We Left Behind.
Earlier this month Star Trek fans flooded local cinemas across the country for a one-night screening of What We Left Behind, the crowdfunded documentary about the beloved series Deep Space Nine. By all accounts, the screening were a huge success, with the film garnering glowing reviews and spiking interest in the show.
However, there are many a Trek fan who were unable to make it to a screening and have been waiting for details about the home release of the documentary. Well, at long last Shout! Factory, the company handling the release, has finally taken the wraps off the Blu-ray and when fans can get a copy.
The Blu-ray and DVD will both be arriving in stores on August 6 in the United States and Canada. It will also be available through all the usual online retailers as well as Shout! Factory’s store. It will include What We Left Behind and well as these special features:
