The documentary, What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Star Trek Deep Space Nine, is being produced, in part, by Ira Steven Behr, who worked as the showrunner on DS9 from 1995-1999. According to The Hollywood Reporter, as part of the documentary, which will also include interviews with cast and crew members, he brought together DS9 writers Ronald D. Moore, Rene Echevarria and Hans Beimler to craft a story that could take the original characters into Season 8 with the creation of a first episode for that season. His goal was to make sure that the documentary wasn’t just filled with the typical talking heads, and that the film would give fans something they’ve never seen from another Trek documentary before. Everyone was told to prep before hand by either watching the last episode of Season 7, or reading the Wikipedia entry for the episode.
