To The Journey: Looking Back at Star Trek: Voyager is an upcoming production from David Zappone and 455 Films set to examine what made Star Trek: Voyager special twenty-five years after the series premiere, through new interviews with the cast and crew.

The working title had previously been A Long Way Home: The Star Trek Voyager Documentary. [1] By March 2021, the film was being reported as yet untitled. [2]

Fundraising campaign

Production launched an Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign on 1 March 2021, raising more than $450,000 in the first twenty-four hours. [3] By 15 March 2021, the campaign had become the most successful Indiegogo documentary campaign ever, reaching more than US$740,000. On March 28, the campaign funding reached and exceeded one million dollars. [4]

Features made possible by having reached various fundraising goals include additional 3D graphics and animations, filming a November 2021 cast reunion in London, expanding the film from 60 to 90+ minutes, composition of an original score for the film, and licensing the original title music from Jerry Goldsmith. [5]

The Indiegogo concluded on 31 March 2021, having collected $1,260,245 from 11,728 backers, almost double the $630,000 raised by What We Left Behind, and breaking the record for most successful crowdfunded documentary (a title previously held by Who the F*@% is Frank Zappa (Save the Vault, Tell the Story), at $1,126,036.)
