The footage will be brought together as a high-def video encyclopedia DVD set exploring the franchise's characters and mythology.
The Toolbox footage "consists of interviews with cast and crew, as well as behind-the-scenes material shot over the past 20 years" and encompasses the Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise series.
Eugene "Rod" Roddenberry, who is the CEO of Roddenberry Prod. and son of the late Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry and the late "First Lady of Star Trek" Majel Barrett Roddenberry, will serve as host on the DVDs.
No release date has been set for the DVDs. [Variety]
