The newest teaser trailer for the potential web series Star Trek: Renegades features Admiral Chekov and Tuvok issuing a call to arms. They’re filming the pilot right now and will be launching a Kickstarter campaign on their website to hopefully turn it into a web series. It’s intended to be a follow-up to the independent fan film Star Trek: Of Gods and Men, which came out back in 2008.
Renegades will be a departure from previous Treks – delving into the dark side of the human psyche, pushing our heroes to their limits, forcing them to carry out actions that they never would have as Starfleet officers. The rules have changed, and they realize they might be the last hope to save the Federation.
Both Walter Koenig (Chekov) and Tim Russ (Tuvok) believe that Star Trek is best as an episodic series rather than as feature films. They’ve assembled a group of prior series’ cast members including Gary Graham (Soval, Enterprise), Garrett Wang (Harry Kim, Voyager), Manu Intiraymi (Icheb, Voyager) and Richard Herd (Adm. Paris, Voyager) as well as new actors to bring this darker version of Star Trek to life.
