Star Trek: Renegades Kickstarter Funding Drive Begins!
Special greetings to the loyal supporters of Star Trek: Of Gods and Men! We appreciate your interest in our project and how you have helped spread the word about ST:OGaM over the years.
And now for our next big endeavor — announcing an exciting new adventure from the creators of ST:OGaM. Boldly going where no Trek has gone before!
It has been seven long years since Enterprise left the air, and though we have had the recent big screen adaptation of Gene Roddenberry’s futuristic vision (and the sequel coming next year), we feel the true home of Star Trek is as a continuing episodic series. The goal of this project is to make that happen.
We, the team who brought you Star Trek: Of Gods and Men, are proud to announce Star Trek:
Renegades, a professionally produced pilot intended for presentation to CBS as a possible online series.
And the best part is YOU can play an important role in making this happen!
We’ve just launched a 60-day funding drive on KickStarter.com the premiere funding platform on the web for creative projects. At kickstarter, every project is all-or-nothing funding, supported by friends, fans, and the public in return for rewards. It’s a no-risk situation – if we don’t reach our funding goal within the 60-day time period, you don’t pay!
For as little as a $10 pledge, you can help us produce this new Star Trek project! And every single pledge receives a reward, from exclusive access to online content, to DVDs or Blu-Rays, to limited edition t- shirts, leather jackets, visits to the set and even walk-on roles in the film! You can just watch from a distance or even become involved in the production as an associate producer. The stars are the limit!
Renegades will be 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.
Renegades will feature a combination of familiar Star Trek faces, plus a collection of hot, new rising actors (to be announced). Tim Russ (Tuvok in Voyager) has signed on to direct Renegades. Also currently in the cast are Walter Koenig (Chekov, Original Series), Tim Russ, Gary Graham (Alien Nation; Soval, Enterprise), Garrett Wang (Harry Kim, Voyager), Robert Picardo (the holodoctor, Voyager), Ethan Phillips (Neelix, Voyager), Manu Intiraymi (Icheb, Voyager) and Richard Herd (Admiral Paris, Voyager).
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.
