Watch The Trailer For Star Trek: Renegades Starring Chekov & Rachael From Blade Runner


Last year, a Kickstarter campaign was launched to fund a special film/pilot based in the Star Trek universe. But this wasn’t any old fan film. Walter Koenig, aka Chekov from the original series, and a few other familiar faces from Star Trek and sci-fi history had joined to create something unique – Star Trek: Renegades. According to the official website, “It is ten years after Voyager’s return from the Delta Quadrant, and the Federation is in a crisis. The Federation’s main suppliers of dilithium crystals are disappearing. Space and time have folded around several planets, effectively isolating them from any contact with outside worlds. And this phenomenon is not natural – someone or something is causing this to happen. This necessitates drastic measures; some of which are outside the Federation’s normal jurisdiction.” And now we’ve got our first official trailer. What do you think?

    Still better-looking, more original and more daring than anything that J.J. Abrams and his crew have cooked up so far!

    Isn’t the main person Xena’s daughter?

    natural – someone or something is causing this to happen.”

    I know this’ll never possibly tie into the Pocket Books universe, but this sounds exactly like something the Tzenkethi would pull.

    Did I see Mia Kirshner and Edward Furlong in there?

  • Herbert West

    Their own promotional blurb advertises this as a dark and edgy Star Trek, action-oriented, filled with characters being forced to act unlike they would in the Federation, etc etc etc. So yeah, I’ll pass. This isn’t Star Trek any more than J.J. Abrams’s movies were.

    How? The teaser is just a bunch of close-ups and some people fighting in the dark.

  • Herbert West

    Yes.

  • Morley

    As opposed to Abrams’ totally different scheme of lens flares, close ups, and people fighting in the dark of course.

    Wait, so did Checkov somehow survive in a fluke temporal/stasis accident like Scotty and Kirk, or is that supposed to be his son/grandson?

  • Herbert West

    My point exactly, it’s the same crap, on a smaller budget.
