Next Installments of ‘Star Trek: Renegades’ to Be Koenig’s Last as Chekov

With just a few days to go and less than $50 thousand from reaching their goal on Kickstarter, the team behind Star Trek: Renegades hopes to complete the second and third episodes of the crowd-funded independent fan-series.

Promoted as the final on-screen performances of Walter Koenig as Pavel Chekov (now a Federation Admiral), the next installments of Star Trek Renegades will feature several other actors returning to their Star Trek roles, including Terry Farrell as Jadzia, Robert Beltran as Chakotay, Cirroc Lofton as Jake Sisko, Aron Eisenberg as Nog, and Hana Hatae as Molly O’Brian.

Additionally, Tim Russ will return to the role of Tuvok, Adrienne Wilkinson as Lexxa, Gary Graham as Ragnar and Corin Nemec as Alvarez, from the first episode.

In order to be funded, the project must hit its goal of $350,000 by Wednesday, December 2.

Official Description

Star Trek Renegades is an independent, fan-funded and supported Internet television series, executive produced by Sky Conway. Renegades features a combination of familiar Star Trek character and actors, plus a collection of hot, new rising actors.

Set a decade after Voyager’s return from Delta Quadrant, ST: Renegades focuses on a team of fugitives, who are on the run from the Federation while secretly working for the head of Starfleet intelligence, Admiral Pavel Chekov (Walter Koenig) and Tuvok (Tim Russ, who also directs) to root out internal corruption within the Federation as well as external threats.

Together, Chekov and Tuvok secretly assembled this new elite strike-force, consisting of rogues, outcasts, and criminals, led by the fearless, yet haunted daughter of Khan Noonan Singh, Lexxa Singh (Adrienne Wilkinson). The Star Trek: Renegades’ Pilot stars Walter Koenig (reprising his role as Admiral Chekov), Adrienne Wilkinson, Sean Young, Manu Intiraymi, Gary Graham, Robert Picardo, Corin Nemec, Bruce Young, Tim Russ, Chasty Ballesteros, Edward Furlong, Courtney Peldon, Larissa Gomes, Richard Herd, and Herbert Jefferson Jr., and introducing Crystal Conway.

    Thats fine, because renegades was garbage. They already lost me with those nasty starfleet uniforms, not to mention the first federation ship you see (which is supposed to be post Nemesis) is using the captains chair, tactical, ops, and conn consoles from TNG…serious!? That be ghetto. Just so mismatched and sloppy. Not even mentioning the shoddy acting and subpar story. Renegades, Horizon, and Captain Pike are the B movies of the fan film world. Prelude to Axanar is superb as i am sure Axanar will be. Pacific 201 look promising, especially the way Eric Henry speaks of his passion for doing “original Star Trek and not just for the sake of Star Trek.”

    • Not to mention the inordinate amount of time they kept showing that
      one chick’s tits over & over & over again. lol

    • daniel

      Well they had a limited Budget what could they do.

  • Jesus, how desperate are these people, that they appear in garbage like this?!? lol I guess the con circuit’s drying up.

  • daniel

    I enjoy this Episode but since it was done with a Low Budget it hurt the episode, If we got CBS to make it into a series that would be great cause Future Star Trek series must be like this it has to be based more on Action Adventure in order to Pull in a new mainstream Audience cause if it goes back to being TNG most people will think it’s too Nerdy.

    • It doesn’t matter. Mainstream-wise, “Star Trek” is dead.
      It absolutely kills me to say that, but the truth is the truth.
      Oh, sure-Trek has it’s fanbase.
      But I’m talking about widespread, mass appeal.
      It’s all superheroes, wizards & hipster vampires now.
      They’re even worried over at Disney that the new “Star Wars” might not catch on.
      Fucked-up, I agree. But there it is ….

      • daniel

        Well the JJ Abrams movie had widespread Mass Appeal and it opened Star Trek to a modern mainstream audience, so if Star Trek is to Survive it has to adopt modern Storytelling lots of Action Adventure little to no Commentary and Cerebral stuff as that Stuff would just turn off a modern Audience it has to be more of a Sci Fi Action series then ever before.
