Our Score
In this comprehensive retrospective of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine from the cast and creatives behind the sci-fi series, showrunner and director Ira Steven Behr travels from pilot to finale, looking at the impact of the show's performances, storytelling and social context. As you would imagine, things get very nostalgic and sentimental, but Behr never shies away from the show's struggles with the fandom, and areas where it could have improved. What's most appealing is the format of the documentary itself. Instead of a procession of "talking head" anecdotes, the film mixes performance and animation to look at the past, and even create a new episode. It's an engaging way to deal with the subject matter that makes the documentary feel like a film and not just an extended DVD extra. While the length and depth of detail may lose newcomers, What We Left Behind provides everything a fan of the show could want.
