Scroll down to watch the entire film embedded below.

Synopsis:

When a seemingly unstoppable new enemy threatens the very existence of the Earth, Admiral Pavel Chekov (Walter Koenig) is forced to work outside the boundaries of Starfleet’s rules to combat this deadly new foe.

When planet after planet winks out of existence, yet Starfleet refuses to act, Chekov turns to Commander Tuvok (Tim Russ, who also directs), the new head of Starfleet’s covert operations division, Section 31. Together, they assemble a new elite strike-force, consisting of rogues, outcasts and criminals, led by the fearless yet haunted Lexxa Singh (Adrienne Wilkinson).

The Renegades’ mission is simple: take on an army and stop their leader, Borrada (Bruce Young), from destroying the Earth. Outnumbered and outgunned, the ragtag crew is in an adrenaline-pumping race against time and space. But they soon find their foes are the least of their concerns: the real trouble may be coming from within!

    Star Trek Renegades – Star Trek’s own answer to both The Dirty Dozen and Blake’s Seven

    If E.M. Nathanson had seen his classic anti-war novel ‘The Dirty Dozen’ converted into a classic Star Trek adventure, he probably would have been flattered. But, if he had seen his classic story, or the concept thereof, turned into something like Star Trek Renegades, he would have been bored to death by it and fallen asleep during its showing.

    No doubt I did and I had to go through a second viewing. Or at the very least, picked up where I dozed off.

    Thankfully, MGM did a better job in 1967.

    All that aside, the plot of the Star Trek film is this.

    Set a decade after the return of the Starship Voyager, some strange phenomena is erupting in certain sectors of the galaxy.

    When a seemingly unstoppable new enemy threatens the very existence of the Earth, Admiral Pavel Chekov is forced to work outside the boundaries of Starfleet’s rules to combat this deadly new foe.

    When planet after planet winks out of existence, Starfleet refuses to act. As a result of the current intergalactic crisis, Chekov turns to Commander Tuvok (Tim Russ, who also directs), the new head of Starfleet’s covert operations division, Section 31. Together, they assemble a new elite strike-force, consisting of rogues, outcasts and criminals, led by the fearless yet haunted Lexxa Singh (Adrienne Wilkinson). A woman who is surprisingly the daughter of the ill-fated and Khan Noonian SIngh, himself.

    The Renegades’ mission is simple: take on an army and stop their leader, Borrada from destroying the Earth with his space-folding technology. Outnumbered and outgunned, the ragtag crew is in an adrenaline-pumping race against time. But they soon find their foes are the least of their concerns: the real trouble may be coming from within!

    The tag-line wasn’t kidding when it said boldly going where no Star Trek has gone before.

    And as our favorite Russian character(i.e. Pavel Chekov)points out in the film, ‘How far is too far?’

    Judging by the end results, Sky Conway, Tim Russ, and even Alec Peters, himself went too far.

    It is no wonder that CBS/Paramount rejected the idea of turning this pilot episode into a series. Assuming if you believe such a story.

    Honestly, this film almost makes Conway’s first effort(i.e. Star Trek – Of Gods And Men)tolerable, despite that film’s own shortcomings.

    Okay, here are my gripes about this latest fan funded endeavor.

    1. Walter Koenig once stated that his appearance as a much older Pavel Chekov in the Star Trek – New Voyages/Phase II episode ‘To Serve All My Days’ would be his last appearance as the stalwart
    Russian officer. That it was his way of saying good bye to the character of Chekov and bringing the character a sense of closure. If that was the case, then why did he decide to return as a 142 year old version of Chekov? Was he taking a cue from the late Leonard Nimoy? Who knows?

    2. Vic Mignogna. Seriously, does this man have to be in every Star Trek production or incarnation, thereof? Whoever said that Vic was The Doomsday Machine of Star Trek fan films was not joking. His performance in his P2 rip-off Star Trek Continues proves that point. His antics on the set of Star Trek-Phase II’s ‘Kitumba’ was so bad that it was one of the many factors that made james Cawley turn the role of Jim Kirk over to professional actor Brian Gross. Mignogna’s antics even caused David Gerrold’s P2 episode ‘The Protracted Man’ to be scrapped. Then his and certain other individuals involvement in the theft of the Starship Ajax production’s newly built sets caused Ajax to be set back to the point of no return, and give the Starship Farragut production’s own reputation a severe tarnishing and major ruining(i.e. a black eye). Anyone from those productions that will tell you any different is just trying to create a smokescreen and cover their tracks. The role of the ill-fated Cardassian Garis certainly fit Mignogna like a glove and the character’s death all the more refreshing. As well as the derogatory descriptions branded the character by some of the leads(i.e. blasphemor, coward, butcher, etc). I’m amazed that Michele Specht was not in this dud in some supporting role.

    3. When on Earth did Khan Noonian Singh have time to have a daughter? Seriously? A daughter? Unless this happened back in 1996 before Khan and his ill-fated folowers fled Earth in the Botany Bay, the very idea of Lexxa Singh’s existence is a pretty far fetched one. An idea that stretches credibility to the very breaking point. The late Ricardo Montalban and Benedict Cumberbatch must be wondering the same thing.

    4. The production design not only looked cheap, the CGI effects were not all that up to par. It is almost as if both Conway and Russ were trying to cheaply copy the CGI effects that was used in the science fiction classic Babylon 5(which also starred Walter Koenig in the recurring role of Psi-Cop Alfred Bester).

    5. Finally, some of the sound effects used in this episode were borrowed from the science fiction classics Space:1999 and the original Battlestar Galactica. Something that was done quite often on Phase II and Starship Farragut. Note to those involved in Star Trek fan productions, use your own sound effects or those from Star Trek instead of recycling others from different science fiction productions. You can do better than that.

    While I found the new Starfleet Uniforms a bit interesting and the idea that Starfleet’s own black ops department Section 31 has gone through a complete overhaul, plus the idea that a century old Pavel Chekov is now a great grandfather, those elements really did nothing much to save Sky Conway’s second independent Star Trek film from total boredom.

    While Star Trek Renegades boasted a cast from other Star Trek productions and those from other genre related productions(i.e. the latter being Louisville, Kentucky native Sean Young who starred in the classic Blade Runner and the surrealitic flop Dune, Corrin Nemec from Solar Crisis and Stargate SG-1, Edward Furlong from Terminator 2 – Judgement Day, and Herbert Jefferson, Jr from the original Battlestar Galactica), such a cast did little to make this Star Trek production an interesting one.

    The Dirty Dozen concept was already used successfully in the original Battlestar Galactica two-parter ‘The Gun On Ice Planet Zero’. The Blake’s 7 format had fit perfectly in that universe. Unless the production had some clever ways of writing such scenarios and making them unique, they don’t really fit into the Star Trek universe.

    If this is going to be a fan series, it is certainly not going to be an entertaining one.

    To Sky Conway and Tim Russ, better luck next time gentleman. You’re going to need it.

    Star Trek: Renegades stars Walter Koenig, Adrienne Wilkinson, Sean Young, Gary Graham, Robert Picardo, Corin Nemec, Tim Russ, Edward Furlong, John Corrigan, Richard Herd, Vic Mignogna, and Herbert Jefferson, Jr.
