Just a quick word to say...


The #DS9Doc was released today into world at large on home video (well, ok, North America & Europe for now -- but more regions coming very soon!), and we are touched by the wonderful words of support for Deep Space Nine and of course for the documentary itself.

We couldn't be more grateful to have shared this experience with all of you, and we thank you, truly, for helping make this film a reality.


Some quick updates for those who might have missed them previously on social media...

SDCC 2019 Panel Is Online!

For those not able to attend this year's San Diego Comic Con International in person, our partners at Shout! Factory have put up an archived version of the FULL Deep Space Nine Documentary Panel, featuring Andy Robinson (Garak), Cirroc Lofton (Jake), Aron Eisenberg (Nog), Chase Masterson (Leeta) and Penny Johnson Jerald (Kasidy), along with filmmakers Ira Steven Behr, David Zappone and Kai de Mello-Folsom...




Much of our team was out last week at Star Trek Las Vegas, and had a great time seeing a lot of our old convention friends and making new ones. David, Kai and Joe joined our #DS9 guests Andy Robinson, Nicole de Boer and Jimmy Darren onstage for a panel on Thursday.

A brief recap of the panel can be found by clicking below or visiting

Now that disk shipments are completed, we're in the process of packaging our posters. Please be patient with us as these take a bit more time to prepare and ship. You'll receive a NEW tracking email notification once your package(s) go out.

If you haven't bought a BACKER NAMES poster, there's still a little time left to pick one up (and have a shot at getting a signed on from Ira Steven Behr!).

And for those asking about the music -- our film's original soundtrack is being released later this year through a partner record label company. Once details of that are settled and public release is announced, we'll be sending out digital redemption codes for backers who were eligible for a free copy during our Indiegogo campaign challenge. We'll also announce it here and on our social media for friends and family who may have missed out!


Stay tuned for details on both of those items soon.


In the meantime, we hope you'll continue to talk up the film to your friends family, hey, even strangers. We've made a huge splash throughout this whole process and definitely turned some heads. We may be nearing the end of our story, but Star Trek: Deep Space Nine will continue to live on.

Who knows where it will go from here.

First off --


We are happy to say ALL Backer Edition disk sets have shipped!



We handed off our international sets to our shipping partners earlier this week, and non-US backers should see their tracking numbers emailed out through BackerKit within the next day or two... but all packages are either on their way or already in your eagerly-awaiting hands!



No, don't fret. Your poster didn't get lost in shipment. Because they're much larger items, they ship separatly -- and are a much longer process for us to safely roll and package. Our team decided to prioritize getting the disk sets out to everyone first before starting on these larger tubes. Now that we're through the first portion, expect to see new tracking numbers for these poster shipments in the coming few weeks.


Ira stopped by our office today to kick off shipping and even sign surprise a few lucky supporters with a signed version...




We still have a few of our limited-edition Backer Names poster prints availalable to purchase... so if you've been on the fence about order this new 'add on,' don't miss your (random) chance to luck out with a surprise signed poster!



Star Trek Las Vegas 2019

We'll be stopping by the annual Star Trek Las Vegas convention NEXT WEEK to join in the fun and show some all-new clips on our #DS9Doc Panel! Follow our social media (Facebook or Twitter) for more day-to-day news, and be sure to say 'hello' if you see us at the con!


We've been delighted to hear all the wonderful feedback from those of you who have already received your disks. Thanks for your kind words of support, and help us spread the news to non-backers about the public release on AUGUST 6th!

Until then, keep trekkin' on.

Don’t forget — if you've moved since supporting the project, there are just a FEW DAYS LEFT to update your mailing address (through BackerKit) for the Blu-Ray/DVD sets, and now... POSTERS!

That's right, we've gotten the full-size theatrical posters back from our manufacturer, and they're looking great! We can't wait for backers to hang these full-size (24" x 36") posters proudly on their walls.

But today, we’re far more excited to debut something new for you…


Rather than just release a long list of names in text format on our website, our team has been cooking up a more-visual way of showing off our many thousands of backers. Based off your own suggestions, we decided the best way to do that was to compile them into something a little more special — a full-sized poster!

This digital poster will be debuting later this week on our website, and includes all backers eligible for the “Name on the Website” or “Name in the Credits” rewards. It’s available for you to view & download for free HERE: (

Click to view the poster!

With the downloadable file, you can even print a version at home if you like! But, because we’re so excited with how this new design turned out, we’ve decided to professionally print some of our own full-sized copies of this poster to accompany the standard theatrical one!

For the NEXT TWO WEEKS ONLY, backers who are already receiving the official theatrical poster can ‘add on’ a high quality 24x36” print of this alternate design for just $25 (with NO ADDITIONAL SHIPPING!). These two posters will ship together in the coming weeks after disk sets go out.

Missed out on the original poster as a reward during the campaign? We've still got a few left over while supplies last. You can order either poster design independently or togeher for a short time on our website or online store at

Visit our store for more!

We hope you'll stay tuned for more updates on disk shipping and upcoming events (like San Diego Comic-Con 2019!). In the meantime, keep trekkin' on!

Some of our backers with 'locked orders' have found a way to still update their preferred address in their BackerKit profile... while this will update your preferences for future shipments, this DOES NOT update your shipping address for the existing orders.


If updating your shipping address, PLEASE BE SURE YOU ARE CHANGING THE ADDRESS FOR THE ORDER ITSELF AND NOT JUST YOUR BACKERKIT PROFILE. When done correctly, order details will appear beside and below it on the page:


Updating your profile preferences WILL NOT automatically transfer over to an order that is locked down in the system. If any parts of your order have already shipped, you will need to reach out to our team directly to change your shipping address.


If you have any questions or concerns whatsoever, please do not hesitate to reach out to our fulfilment team at and we'll be happy to assist.

Hello friends!

It’s July at last and we’ve got a lot of exciting news coming up. First of all, our team is hard at work getting everything ready for our Blu-Ray/DVD mailings. Importantly for you, that means…



We’re leaving our BackerKit fulfillment system open for ONE MORE WEEK to allow for any last minute changes and mailing address updates. We encourage EVERYONE to check on their order status there and make sure your details are up-to-date and correct.

You can view your BackerKit order page by visiting and entering your email address on file with our team.

Some reminders about address changes:

• If you have MULTIPLE ORDERS, you will need to update FOR EACH ORDER. You can swap between them on the BackerKit site by selecting the yellow banner at the top of order screen.

• If you have more than one order, please make sure you ar changing your address FOR THE CORRECT ORDER(S).

• If parts of your order have already shipped (usually t-shirts or pins), your address may be automatically locked down by the system. If this is the case, REACH OUT TO OUR TEAM DIRECTLY at with your new address and we’ll be happy to update it for you.

• Mailing addresses are handled solely through BackerKit. Changes in BackerKit do not automatically update into your Indiegogo, but the address listed on your Indiegogo account / profile does NOT affect shipping. If you have previously updated your address in Indiegogo or another system, be sure to check the correct mailing address is on file in BackerKit.

- If you have any issues updating for multiple orders at the same time, concerns or questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our support team at


And now that the reminders are out of the way...


Yes! As was just announced this week, we'll be beaming down ot SDCC 2019 this month with our friends Andrew Robinson (Garak), Cirroc Lofton (Jake), Aron Eisenberg (Nog), Chase Masterson (Leeta) and Penny Johnson Jerald (Kasidy)! Our team will be hosting a panel on Friday, July 19th at 7PM and sharing some exclusive never-before-seen clips from the cutting room foor. If you’re in the area, be sure to drop in or stop by the Shout! Factory booth throughout the week for free giveaways and a chance to say hello to the team!



We’ve just gotten the full-size theatrical posters back from the printer, and they look beautiful! We’ll be shipping those out later this month to eligible backers (if you missed out, you can still buy one while supplies last HERE).

Based off of suggestions we received from YOU, we’re also getting ready to debut an ALL-NEW (DIGITAL) BACKER NAMES POSTER which will offer a more creative way to show off your names on our website and will also be available for you to download and print at home. Stay tuned for another email with the release of that in the coming days!


In the meantime, don't forget to confirm your mailing address, if needed, and follow your email for important updates throughout the month. And for those in the USA -- have a great holiday week!
