Star Trek: Renegades, a new production aimed at bringing Star Trek back to television, has begun production on a professionally-produced television pilot.
The show, which will feature familiar Star Trek actors as well as newcomers to the Trek world, claims to be “bold, edgy and a little dark.”
Star Trek: Renegades is described on the show website as “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.
Star Trek: Renegades will be action-oriented, filled with suspense and espionage; all while exploring new worlds, encountering both familiar and new alien species, and boldly going where no Trek has gone before.”
Directed by Tim Russ, Star Trek: Renegades will include: Walter Koenig, Gary Graham (Soval), Garrett Wang (Harry Kim), Manu Intiraymi (Icheb) and Richard Herd (Admiral Paris).
A trailer for the show may be seen here.
