It is ten years after Voyager’s return from the Delta Quadrant, and the Federation is in a crisis.Like the Axanar films, Star Trek: Renegades is a crowdfunded independent movie that the term "fan film" does a great injustice to.
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.
For this, Admiral Pavel Chekov, head of Starfleet Intelligence, turns to Commander Tuvok, Voyager’s former security officer and current head of the newly reorganized Section 31.
Tuvok must put together a new covert, renegade crew – mostly outcasts and rogues – even criminals.
This new crew is tasked with finding out what is causing the folding of time and space, and stopping it – at all costs.
But will they be able to put aside their differences and stop trying to kill one another in time to accomplish their mission?
Featuring several well-known faces from the Trek franchise, as well as a number of recognisable character actors, Renegades looks like a lot of fun, in the grand old style of Deep Space 9 and The Original Series.
Look out in the trailer for a brief glimpse of versatile Tonbridge martial artist John Carrigan as Admiral D’Agosto (he also doubles as a Klingon captain in the film)!
