Hoping to bring the universe of Star Trek back to television, production has begun on Star Trek: Renegades.
Starring Trek alums Walter Koenig , Tim Russ and Garret Wang, this new, professionally-produced pilot is intended to be a “bold, edgy and a little dark” take on Star Trek. The cast is intended to be one of familiar and new faces to the long-running franchise.
The project’s web site describes it as “a departure from previous Treks – delving into the dark side of the human psyche, pushing our heroes to their limits, forcing them to carry out actions that they never would have as Starfleet officers. The rules have changed, and they realize they might be the last hope to save the Federation.
Star Trek: Renegades will be action-oriented, filled with suspense and espionage; all while exploring new worlds, encountering both familiar and new alien species, and boldly going where no Trek has gone before.”
A trailer for the project has been released. You can check it out below:
