LOS ANGELES, Nov 27 — Trekkies aren’t going to be happy with the news that the crowdfunded documentary about the history of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine has been delayed.

What We Left Behind was supposed to be directed by Adam Nimoy, the son of Star Trek icon Leonard Nimoy and fiancé of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine star Terry Farrell. However, Nimoy has announced that he will be leaving that position while staying on board the project as a producer and advisor.

In an update on the Indiegogo campaign page, Nimoy is quoted as saying: “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!”

The update also clarifies that the release date, originally slated for February 2018, has been delayed though the creators say they are “still are aiming to have the film done in early 2018”.
