    If it's Portuguese then it should be close enough.

    Got my "Backers Edition" yesterday :) It was well worth the wait!
    Was pleasantly surprised with the special cover.
    What a wonderful retrospective and love letter to DS9 and it's cast in front and behind the camera.

    Fingers crossed we'll get all of DS9 in HD in the next couple of years.
    It looks fantastic!

    Meh. I missed an attempted delivery but I have a customs charge and handling fee, so it's an extra £11.68 on top of the $49 I spent originally to get it in the first place. $9 international postage fee as well. ;)

    I actually teared up watching this; it really brought into full focus not only how good DS9 is, but how much those involved creating it really loved it. Wishful thinking, but, I'm REALLY hoping this doc is the beginning of the show finally gets its due and perhaps help to ensure the series could get a full HD remaster.

    A tiny peek at one of the deleted scenes...



    Avery Brooks fully nailing Marc Alaimo in the face. Ouch!

    Spent 4 or 5 hours working my way through the disc last night. Loved it. Sat with a smile on my face for most of the 2 hour doc, it was so great to see all of these old friends again.

    After it finished, I was very grateful that this exists - DS9 deserved something like this, but, equally it leaves me saddened that a full remaster of the series remains in limbo. The HD-remastered scenes in the doc are gorgeous.

    So I finally got my disk and I fell in love all over again. The HD scenes were amazing this time I saw it, being as it wasn't on my crappy laptop. ;) The battle in Sacrifice of Angels really took my breath away.

    I'm about halfway through the special features but I need to do something else. I can't wait for my Trekkie friend to see this.

    Finally watching this. Amazing stuff and can’t help laughing at the parallels as they are reading the complaint letters. Sounds so familiar for some reason!

    Only managed to watch half of it so far, but damn - what a way to start! Brilliant remastered space battle before Andy Robinson interjects. :lol:

    This was a fantastic project. Hats off to everyone involved. Finally getting to see the series in HD is a thing to behold. It was a bit jarring to see the switch between HD and SD where FX shots were involved. I first noticed it when we saw SIsko eject from The Saratoga. I thought "Huh? ... Ohhhhh, of course". Same with The Great Link and shots with phaser fire. Great they were able to redo the AR-558 scene.

    Can't wait to watch the rest later today.

    I'm so happy that this project got the level of support that it did, and was able to funnel that support into creating such a great product (both film and everything associated with it).

    I feel like where I live there aren't a lot of DS9 fans around, so yeah, this did help with some feelings of isolation, heh.

    I feel sorry for terry Ferrell. It sounds like she got the short end of the stick

    The Backers Only release is the only unlocked release so far. The Shout Factory editions are both locked to A.

    I have the backer edition but am curious about the Shout exclusive material. Not curious enough to buy a second disc but might consider a digital copy. Can anyone whose seen them offer any comment as to whether it’s worthwhile?

    I’m also curious if anyone has bought a digital copy and can confirm if the Shout stuff is included. It looks like iTunes ($14.99) includes It. Vudu ($9.99), Google Play ($9.99) and Amazon ($14.99) seem like they don’t.

    Yes she did and they kinda glossed over MUCH of the story.

    I don't have it, but the only extra it has over the Backer is a fifty minute version of the Filmmaker Discussion. (Backer version is fifteen minutes.) My advice would be to watch the 15m one (if you haven't already) and decide if a longer version of that is something you need.
