We Have the Technology: Building a New "Star Trek" Series

I recently came across the news there's a new "Star Trek" series (of sorts) in the works, and after running off to research the four corners of the webosphere, my initial excitement quickly abated. In short: it's been a long time since we've had a new Trek series, so some of the series' actors (Walter Koenig, Nichelle Nichols, Alan Ruck, Tim Russ, Garrett Wang) decided to "gift" fans with a homemade production. (The same group previously got together to create "Star Trek: Of Gods and Men.") Funded by a kickstarter, "Renegades" is set to begin production this summer, even as one of its "rising actors" heads to jail for six months.

Here's the trailer; whose tagline claims "...not your grandfather's Star Trek;" but the rate of speech argues otherwise.


I think we can do better. Heck, I think I can do better--at the very least--in assembling a cast. Let's get this thing going on SyFy, people. Additional cast suggestions welcome.


The Captain: Jamie Bamber
