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.”
