Our beloved Tuvok (Tim Russ), after having a huge hand directing a private Star Trek movie many trek fans have not yet seen called "Star Trek: Of Gods
and men", is going to wow us again with another new project called "Star Trek Renegades", which is a fan made movie set 10 years after the return of
"Of gods and Men", was a stand alone "fan made" movie which was set shortly after the events of "Star Trek Generations", a few years after the events
in the past following Kirks loss on the enterprise B to the Nexus. This fan made movie is filled with MANY familiar faces to the Trek world.
"OG&M" simply kicked ass with plentiful space battles, answered questions to some TOS issues, as well as gave a glimpse of the possibilities for "what
could have been" had the TMP era series been made and continued with a new captain(sulu?) in the void of time between the last original cast movie and
the TNG series. It was great and all but was a "little" dinky in certain production aspects, but over all was simply epic. I do mean a little, dont
get me wrong it was SOO worth the free watch. PLEASE WATCH IT...for your own good.
SO this isnt about "Of Gods and Men". This thread is about "Renegades". This piece is another fan made production but THIS piece however is designed
to be a pilot for a series should ANY studio with ANY sense pick it up and run with it. It is going to be set in the normal cannon universe like "Gods
and men" was, just in the future following where "DS9" and "Voyager" left off. So NORMAL UNIVERSE!!! which should make you screech with joy if you
arent a big fan of the little number JJ did to the Trek world....ahem! ...blasphemous heathen....J/K
There really is allot to say about this venture and really all of it is good.
It is going to be a little darker and a little more edgy like DS9 was, and is going to be freaking orgasmic to the inner nerd in us all. Follow this,
support it, and do your part like many Trek fans before you to get us yet another great show for our kids generation, as was done for us.
The characters will include many familiar faces like the "OG&M" movie had, but will also introduce some new ones into the mix.
here is the first part of an interview with Tim Russ about it.
I think this project still needs some help with production and other stuff, so if you can offer any help please contact them and let them know if you
are available. Heck if the show is picked up maybe you can get a job working on a Trek show....I know right!.. well at the very least you can know you
helped the trek world along in your own way.
for a little of a spoiler go to IMDB..... www.imdb.com...
Peace and long life! Live long and prosper ATS.....
I thought I would add some more tit bits.

good hands we can trust.
Scott Nakada – Art Direction

This guy basically designed the sovereign class and has been around for some time. Another classic from the
"home team"....or A team.
I thought I would throw this in here as well so those who havent seen some of the better fan made episodes can get a glimpse of another great project
"Star Trek continues". The captain here (Vic Mignogna) will be in "Renegades".
