Today 455 Films, the team behind the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine documentary What We Left Behind and others, has launched a brand new crowdfunding campaign in support of their latest Star Trek documentary. This time they are turning their gaze to Star Trek: Voyager and as of today you can support the effort and secure yourself a copy, along with many more perks.
The Voyager Doc needs you
Just as they successfully did with What We Left Behind, 455 is looking to the fan community for support to help complete the as yet untitled Voyager documentary. Production began in early 2020 with the filming of the cast on Star Trek: The Cruise. Production has slowly continued during the COVID pandemic but it’s still in the early stages and there’s a lot more to shoot.
Funding will go to support additional filming as well as post-production, which includes editing, music, animation, and licensing of Voyager footage. The team is also hoping to remaster that footage in HD as they did for the DS9 documentary. Currently, they are seeking $150,000 for their first goal, and in just a few hours they have almost reached it. More funding will allow them to add additional stretch goals, including the HD remastering.
This video released today features Voyager stars Garrett Wang and Tim Russ talking to Lolita Fatjo about the documentary, plus a few surprise guests.
Pre-order for Fall 2022
There are many different levels of support and perks you can select for the Voyager documentary. If you want to secure a digital release you can pick up the Digital Bundle for $25, with a target release of September 2022. The Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack perk is $35 with a target date of October 2022, and if you bump that up to $50 you can get the “Bragging Rights” perk which adds some collectibles and your name in the end credits of the doc.
Perks include collectibles and celebrity meet-ups
In addition to securing your copy of the doc, there are also perks for support levels ranging from $15 to $10,000. There are quite a few collectibles available for support in the $35 range including various tee shirts and pins.
