Back in 2013, director Tim Russ and his team took to rewards-based crowdfunding platform, Indiegogo, with a mission to raise only $20,000 for their production, Star Trek: Renegades. During its run, the campaign quickly surpassed its initial goal and by its closing date captured over #$130,000.
“Ten years after Voyager’s return from the Delta Quadrant, the Federation is 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…”
Among those starring in the film are Walter Koenig, Tim Russ, Adrenne Wilkinson, J.G. Hertzler and Robert Picardo.
