Star Trek: Renegades is hoping to create a “full new Star Trek pilot” in hopes of getting an online or cable series from CBS.
To produce their pilot, Star Trek: Renegades has started an Indiegogo campaign to raise revenue for the project.
The Renegade story will begin “ten years after Voyager’s return from the Delta Quadrant,” with “the Federation … in crisis. Someone has caused space and time to fold around several planets, all of which are the Federation’s main suppliers of dilithium, essentially cutting off the supply for several millennia. Starfleet’s methods to stop those responsible have been ineffective. This necessitates more drastic measures, some of which are outside the Federation’s jurisdiction. It now falls to Admiral Pavel Chekov, head of Starfleet Intelligence, and Commander Tuvok, Voyager’s former security officer and new head of the clandestine Section 31, to put together a new covert, renegade crew – primarily comprised of outcasts, rogues and even criminals. But can they refrain from killing each other to accomplish their task? That may be the bigger question.”
Plenty of former Star Trek actors will be in Star Trek: Renegades, including: Tim Russ, Walter Koenig, J.G. Hertzler, Robert Picardo, Gary Graham, Garrett Wang, Manu Intiraymi, and Richard Herd.
Others included in the project will be: Adrienne Wilkinson, Corin Nemec, Edward Furlong, Larissa Gomes, Tarah Paige, Grant Imahara. Courtney Peldon, Vic Mignogna, Chasty Ballesteros and Kevin Fry.
Part of the reason for the need for additional revenue is the desire to add more cast to the pilot, add several additional shooting days, better makeup and props and to build sets for an alien world to be featured in the story.
Rewards will be given to those contributing, with the perks ranging from a digital download of the official movie poster and full access to exclusive web content for those donating $10, to a set visit, associate producer credit, exclusive autograph package and more for those contributing $10,000.
The Star Trek: Renegades Indiegogo campaign will run through Friday, September 13. To donate and to see more information on Star Trek: Renegades, head to the link located
