Just 54 Hours Left

... in our Indiegogo campaign. Incredibly, we've met ALL official stretch goals, and we're well on our way to creating a worthy (we hope!) tribute to Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

But how great would it be if we end this campaign on an even stronger note? We KNOW there are many more #DS9 fans out there, so we're challenging YOU to help us reach 10,000 backers and make a statement to the world that NINERS are out there & are actively making their voices heard!

A new contribution at ANY amount counts towards this goal! And don't forget, we've still got our REFERRAL CONTEST going, so keep sharing your personalized referral link and you might have a shot at one of Terry Farrell's original DS9 Cast & Crew Jackets!


Rule #239: Never Be Afraid to Mislabel a Product

We wanted to let you know -- after speaking with Ira Steven Behr about the complete Rules of Acquisition, we've decided on the T-shirt to list ONLY the official rules spoken on screen in the series. As you probably know, there are other rules floating around the internet and from DS9 novels, but as many conflict or are mis-numbered, we've opted to only include ones written or otherwise approved by Ira.

The good news is, this will make them even easier to read on the shirt! The bad news is, for those of you expecting the full 285 (or so) rules, we're not afraid to admit we *may* have mislabeled that product, slightly. Our apologies. But as Quark would say... "A contract is a contract is a contract... but only between Ferengi."

Don't miss your chance to add-on this & other great exclusive merchandise before the campaign ends!


Final Rewards

Many of you are asking if we have any new perks coming in our final days. Those of you who missed out on the Complete DS9 Signed DVD sets previously will be happy to hear that we're releasing a final batch of 25 tomorrow in the early afternoon.

It's possible that we may also have one or two more (small) surprises, but for the most part... that's it, folks! We hope you'll consider grabbing any remaining limited packages (like the STLV bundle and the new LONDON Screening!) before time runs out. And never fear, all additional funding goes straight into the continuing goal of including more HD DS9 content in the final film, so it's still going to great use!


DS9 Daydreams...

And in case you missed it, we just released the second part of our #DS9Daydreams video series. You can watch BOTH here:


We hope you enjoy, and keep making some noise for DS9!

Final Stretch Goal: Achieved!

Just a quick note to say… WE’VE DONE IT! We’ve surpassed what, just a few weeks ago, we thought would just be a crazy dream. And it’s all thanks to you. Niners rule!

As you probably know, this final stretch gives us the financial ability to follow up with our intent to scan and remaster selected shots from the series for presentation for the first time in HD. While we want to reiterate that nothing’s guaranteed until we can get into details further with various departments, we’ve been empowered by our positive talks with CBS Television Studios, along with guidance from familiar faces Mike & Denise Okuda and VFX master Doug Drexler, among others.

With the campaign just days away from an incredible finish, we’ve decided not to announce any further stretch goals… but that’s not to say that additional funding isn’t vital to the continued success of the project. Any additional funds will continue to be put towards additional interviews, custom graphics, and most importantly, the costly process of licensing (and re-scanning for HD!) archival clips for use in the film. It’s as simple as that: the more we can raise, the more we can include.

More updates to come. But for now, celebrate! We’ve all earned it.

We're just shy of our final stretch goal... Incredible! Of course, it doesn't stop there. 

While we don't plan on adding any further stretch goals in our final days, please know that any additional funds raised will go straight into production for the film and will give us further opportunity to potentially up-res and include more clips from the show itself!

(Not to mention, the bigger news we can make for DS9, the better!)

UK Premiere Added!

You asked, and we listened! Our most popular response to our screening location survey, by far, was LONDON... so we're adding a screening event! To simplify, we've removed the afterparty option and some of the other physical swag from the other packages (you can still add-on these items separately with other bundles!), but we assure you, this will still be a one-of-a-kind event not to miss. If we can sell over 100 packages, we'll even send along one or more VIP guests to host the event and do a meet & greet afterwards!

So now it's up to you, UK fans, to come through and spread the word in our final days!

More Time with Terry!

To celebrate our final week on Indiegogo, we've just released a new exclusive sneak-peek of an interview with the fabulous Terry Farrell. Check it out here:


In addition, we're pleased to announce that Terry has agreed to join Ira and actor James Darren for our  VIC FONTANE ONE-NIGHT SPECIAL perk! That's right, we're sweetening the deal and making this an evening of fun that you're not soon to forget.

Don't miss your last chance to jump on to this great, one-of-a-kind reward (and support the film at the same time)!

In the meantime, don't forget that our REFERRAL CONTEST is still going strong. Even if you can't contribute more than you already have,  ANYONE has a shot at winning one of Terry's own DS9 CREW JACKETS by sharing your unique referrer link by email and on social media! Check our last update for further details!

That's all for now, but keep making noise this week... and we have a feeling we'll be checking back in with you real soon!

Third Stretch Goal Passed!

Wow, two updates in one day?

We'll keep this short... We've successfully passed our third stretch goal, and that means we've also unlocked a FREE BONUS ITEM for our contributors!

We're excited to announce that since our stretch goals now also allow us to record an original score for the film, all backers at the $35 level and up will be receiving a FREE digital copy of our soundtrack, once available! Huzzah (Qapla?)!!

If you've not yet made the leap from digital to physical rewards, like the T-Shirts or the DVD/Blu-Ray combo, now's a great time to do so and gain this bonus reward as well!

Thanks for the continued push! Join in on our REFERRAL CONTEST, if you haven't already, keep sharing, and make some NOISE for DS9!

Moving into our FINAL STRETCH!

That’s right, we’re about to head into our final week and we couldn’t be more excited with how far we’ve come. But with yesterday’s news and the reveal of our final stretch goal, there’s still plenty at stake with this campaign, and it’s up to YOU to help spread the word!

Just imagine, if each of our contributors encouraged JUST ONE family member or friend to join in at the ‘Streaming’ level (or convinced them to buy a t-shirt!) we’d instantly surpass the $500k stretch goal!


To sweeten the deal, we’re announcing a new REFERRAL CONTEST for the final week of the campaign! The person who shares the campaign and generates the most new contributions* through their personalized link will win one of Terry Farrell’s original Deep Space Nine crew jackets

These jackets were not officially sold and were only made available to cast & crew. Only ONE available (in women’s size medium) FREE to the winner of our referral contest!

It's easy to participate! Simply LOG IN to Indiegogo and use Indiegogo’s share tools (the icons next to the “BACK IT” button) to spread the word on Facebook, Twitter, and by email.

* Contributions counted based off the highest cumulative amount brought in through unique referrer ID. To be eligible, contributions must direct to the page through your referral link and complete an order. Contest begins 9:00AM PST on March 2, 2017 and ends at 11:59PM PST on March 10, 2017. Winner will be contacted by email provided to Indiegogo after campaign completion.


As promised, we’ve also got a handful new rewards out today!

  • Because you’ve made it abundantly clear that you can’t get enough of everyone’s favorite tailor, we’re releasing our "JUST A SIMPLE T-SHIRT!" Bask in the complexities of the enigmatic Garak in style in this ALL-NEW add-on perk.

  • Think you can talk ‘trek’ with the best of them? Then grab this limited ENGAGE PODCAST PACK, which includes a special invite to guest on Jordan Hoffman’s ENGAGE: Official Star Trek™ Podcast, DS9 Season 4 crew hat & MORE! Only THREE of these packs available!

  • Due to the extended scope of the film, we are adding 2 final “Associate Producer” perks! If you’re looking for a high-end reward like no other, check out this package now before it’s gone!

We’ve got more content coming throughout the week, so stay involved, check back & SHARE THE PROJECT! (Who knows, you might even win some cool swag from Terry Farrell!)

Our continued thanks, and love.
