Led by producer/showrunner Ira Steven Behr, a Who's Who list of Deep Space Nine actors are committed to the project including:
Nana Visitor, Armin Shimerman, Terry Farrell, Ira Steven Behr, Jeffrey Combs, Chase Masterson, Max Grodenchik, Hana Hatae and Casey Biggs came together to film a special video to support the fundraising campaign...
Contributors can select from a wide variety of perks, including DS9 pin sets, Blu-ray/DVD combo packs, screen credits, one-on-one talks and/or lunch with Behr, NY and LA screening packages, and more.
"I have been a fan of Deep Space Nine ever since I watched David Carson brilliantly direct the pilot episode back in 1992," Nimoy told StarTrek.com. "As I have traveled the world with For The Love Of Spock, I've been amazed at the resurgence of interest in DS9 and the incredible camaraderie among the cast members. I’m honored to have been invited by 455 Films and Ira to come on board as director to help complete this look back at one of the jewels in the crown of the Star Trek franchise."
StarTrek.com also spoke to Terry Farrell, who said, "It was a great honor for me to have played Jadzia Dax on DS9. This year past year, 2016, when I was out at the conventions celebrating the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, I was overwhelmed by the love and support fans have for DS9. There is a whole new fan base of kids watching us on Netflix. It’s very exciting to have new fans say they are binge-watching the show, 20-plus years later. I’m looking forward to getting behind the scenes in What We Left Behind and learning about what happened on the set and in the writers' room when I was at home or, more likely, in my trailer waiting to work."
