The upcoming “What We Left Behind,” the crowdfunded documentary on the history and impact of “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” has hit a stumbling block.
Adam Nimoy, son of Leonard Nimoy, has stepped down from the director’s chair on the project to “order to focus on personal commitments and other creative endeavours”. In a statement included in the project’s most recent update, Nimoy says:
“The real creative force behind the DS9 documentary was well in place before I came along. I was happy to lend them support and guidance to push the project along so that it could be completed in time for the 25th anniversary of the show which is coming up in 2018. I wish the creative team all good things as they Boldly Go!”
Nimoy will remain as part of the team as producer and advisor, David Zappone and original DS9 executive producer Ira Steven Behr will co-direct the film in its final stages. The film won’t make its previously targeted February 2018 release but those involved are still aiming for a release in the first half of 2018.
