    I wonder how many here are going to a theater tonight vs. waiting for the disc release.

    As a backer I was able to stream it early. Great documentary, and long overdue!

    I didn't know it was even a Kickstarter. Just saw ads about the movie event and my wife and I had just finished up watching DS9 several months ago, so thought it would be fun. 7pm tonight, looking forward to it.

    Thanks!

    I will obviously be available somehow eventually, I surly doubt they would go through all this to only show it one time.

    I think you're confusing the word when, with if.

    Just got home. It was definitely fun, seeing the HD clips was neat, and even took home a free poster. I loved the bit in the end credits :D

    They didn't have any of the posters at the theater I went to. Not a big loss, I suppose.

    Definitely a good look back at DS9. If I had to quibble, it would have been nice to have more full-cast roundtable... and if I'm not mistaken, Avery didn't participate at all, which is a little disappointing. (I think all of his stuff was archival clips from other documentaries, particularly "The Captains.")

    The thing I'm left with, after watching the documentary, is a sense of loss all over again. Everyone that participated seemed to enjoy DS9 so much, and there was a feeling of "Let's get the band back together..." but then you realize that won't happen, especially when you have some of the cast referring to "that time in our lives" that clearly is something in the past.

    Similarly, watching the HD clips, you get that thought that it'd be so nice to see the show in HD... and then you realize that won't happen either, especially because they said that CBS would only scan the film if the documentary people covered the full cost.

    Backers just received an update that says "in the coming days, you may see news about home video release plans and dates through our distribution partners at Shout! Factory". When we get more info I'll post it here.

    Also next month the film will play at theaters in the UK, Ireland, and Germany.

    Pretty much how I felt too. And I feel that the chances of a full HD remaster of the entire series are even *more remote* now than before I saw the documentary. :(

    The slide show mentioned a home video/digital release in August.

    I saw the documentary/movie last night - our movie theater was pretty quiet but full - not many people in costume though. I liked being able to see the clips of the series as well as the actors now. Unfortunately DS9 isn't available on TV reruns like other Star Trek series have been. I am currently checking out the DVDs available through my library to rewatch the seasons.

    It's on the H&I ("Heros & Icons") cable channel Sunday nights and weeknights. H&I is on Comcast and many other providers in your area. It's also on Netflix which offers a free trial month, but good luck finishing all episodes in one month. :)

    There was a promo about a blu-ray version of the documentary that played before the show started. I think it had an exact date but I'm pretty sure it said August.

    It's actually on every day of the week. It's part of their nightly "All Star Trek, All Night" programming block. They show TOS, TNG, DS9, VOY, and ENT all in a row.

    Star Trek: Deep Space Nine

    Edit: in fact, tonight is "What You Leave Behind, Part I", which would mean they'd re-start with "The Emissary, Part I" on Thursday night.

    Thanks! I've edited my post. Amazing to think there's basically a "Star Trek channel" outside of Silicon Valley now. :)

    (I originally found that H&I when we wanted to revisit the old Kung-Fu TV series. It's just amazing the whitewashing that folks accepted back in the day. Not just David Carradine, either. In one episode, a 16 year-old blue-eyed Don Johnson was playing a Native American! But I'm getting OT.)

    Besides Netflix and H&I, I believe CBS All Access also has it. However, it's hard to say that service is worth it unless you're subscribing for ST: D (or STD, as some call it).

    All of the major SVOD platforms carry Trek. (Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu.)

    I never watched DS9 or Voyager. I liked NG, Enterprise and Discovery. Maybe I should go back and watch these. I'm not a "treky" but I do enjoy the genre.
