Today, Ira Steven Behr launched his Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign for the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine documentary we’ve been hearing about since last summer.
Adam Nimoy, who did such a beautiful job with For the Love of Spock, is directing, Behr is producing, and the finished doc will feature interviews from the main cast as well as guest stars, behind-the-scenes production people, and a gathering of five of the writers who talk about what they’d do if DS9 had an eighth season.
Cast members Terry Farrell, Nana Visitor, Armin Shimerman, Max Grodénchik, Casey Biggs, Jeffrey Combs, and Chase Masterson all showed up for the video with Behr to screen a bit of the footage and talk about why they need help from the fans. Costs include everything from post-production to licensing, as every clip from the show they include comes with a price tag.
Fans who signed up for email updates got a sneak peak last night and a chance to be among the first contributors to the campaign, with perks ranging from DVDs, pins, and website mentions to on-screen credits and personal experiences (dinner at Nana Visitor’s! Hang out in Vegas with the whole team! Studio tour from Ira Behr!). To be fair, Behr insisted that the cast cough up a little money to help as well.
