Star Trek: Renegades, a new production aimed at bringing Star Trek back to television, has begun production on a professionally-produced television pilot, and fans can help courtesy of a new Kickstarter project.
Star Trek: Renegades is “set a decade after Voyager’s return from the Delta Quadrant, [and] finds the Federation in a crisis that pushes the heroes to their limits, and explores the darker side of the human psyche.”
Familiar Trek actors will be taking part in Star Trek: Renegades, including Walter Koenig, Tim Russ, Garrett Wang, Robert Picardo, Ethan Phillips and Gary Graham. Russ will direct the pilot. The pilot will be co-written and co-produced by Ethan H. Calk.
“Star Trek: Renegades will be action oriented, filled with suspense and espionage,” said Sky Conway, producer of Star Trek: Renegades. “All [this] while exploring new worlds, encountering both familiar and new alien species, and boldly going where no Trek has gone before.”
The Kickstarter project for the pilot seeks to raise $200,000 by November 26. Those who contribute $10 or more will receive various gifts, ranging from digital downloads and exclusive web content, to set access and Associate Producer credit in the titles and in IMDB.
