Hertzler Joins Star Trek: Renegades

Star Trek: Renegades has one week to go in its Kickstarter fundraising drive and today news comes from the project that another familiar face will be joining the proposed film.

Star Trek: Deep Space Nine‘s J.G. Hertzler (Chancellor Martok) is the latest Star Trek actor to join Star Trek: Renegades.

Hertzler joins Director Tim Russ, Walter Koenig, Gary Graham, Garrett Wang, Robert Picardo, Ethan Phillips, Manu Intiraymi and Richard Herd.

In Star Trek: Renegades, Hertzler will play Borrada, the “main antagonist” in the film.

But before Star Trek: Renegades can begin production, $200,000 must be raised. The project has already been pledged $176,000 and needs to raise the remaining amount by next Monday.

Russ spoke with Subspace Communique about Star Trek: Renegades, telling them that if the $200,000 is raised, the film will begin production, “late Spring or early Summer of 2013.”

According to Russ, the storyline for the movie “takes place a number of years beyond Voyager‘s return home.” Producer Sky Conway promises that Star Trek: Renegades will be “action oriented, [and] filled with suspense and espionage; all [this] while exploring new worlds, encountering both familiar and new alien species, and boldly going where no Trek has gone before.”

Russ will be playing Tuvok, who “will basically be the same character as was portrayed in Voyager, but his choices and actions within the storyline will be based on the unusual challenges he faces.”

    Considering the fact that Vic Mignogna is serving in a producer’s capacity on this film, it is clearly obvious that Star Trek – Renegades, like Mignogna’s Star Trek Continues, is going to be a huge flop.

    Fred Freiberger’s ‘series killer’ reputation has come back to haunt Star Trek and in the worst possible way.

    Star Trek Continues didn’t even start filming yet, so how can you call it a flop? Oh wait, I forgot—you’re the guy who has been paid to badmouth it on every post.

    By the way, Renegades made its Kickstarter goal…I thought it looked like a bad idea, myself, but now I can take pleasure in the fact that you will be angry it is happening.

    I assure you, I have not received any fiscal/financial payment for stating strong criticisms and objections concerning Vic. Why people continue to make such false observations is beyond me.

    More like appalled that Mignogna(who has a bad reputation in Star Trek fan film and other fan circles)and his BS involvement is going to mishandle and ruin Star Trek’s name, by being a part of this soon-to-be misfire. His actions have clearly demonstrated that his character is nothing more than the equivalent of a doomsday machine/black hole that consumes Star Trek and other fan projects for his own demented purposes.

    And, for your information, I’m not the only one who feels the same way about Vic. If you will note the following link, I think you can understand why I ‘badmouth him’ and his toxic BS. If not, that’s your loss.

    Think about it. You people constantly badmouth J.J. Abrams really viciously(which I think is wrong), and he hasn’t done anything wrong.

    Vic Mignogna and his associates have done serious wrong in their unethical BS. Need I say more?

    Taking pleasure in one’s anger is not only illogical, but most distasteful. It could lead to unfortunate side-effects, both mentally and physically.

    Specifically, the physical loss of one’s eyesight and the wearing out of a certain part of the human anatomy.

    The trollioliolio’s words are unimportant. We do not hear them.

    Maybe your handle should be one of the Capellans from Friday’s Child. Or Edward Jellico, himself.

    All that aside, Star Trek Renegades is going to wind up as a dud. Right up there with Starship Farragut and Farragut Films’ Star Trek Continues.
