Star Trek Renegades News

1 min read

Changes are happening at Star Trek: Renegades, with a familiar character leaving the fan-produced series, and two new Star Trek actors joining it.

Walter Koenig announced that Admiral Chekov’s last appearances in Star Trek: Renegades will be in episodes two and three of the production. Koenig’s first appearance as Chekov was in the original series’ episode Catspaw.

Cirroc Lofton, Jake Sisko on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, has joined Star Trek: Renegades, where he will reprise his role as Benjamin Sisko’s son. Aron Eisenberg, who played his Ferengi friend Nog on Deep Space Nine, is also involved in Star Trek: Renegades.

Another Trek actor, this time from Star Trek: Voyager, is joining Star Trek: Renegades. Robert Beltran will be returning to the world of Trek as Commander Chakotay.

Star Trek: Renegades plans on making more episodes, and in view of that, will announce new details about their Kickstarter project at the end of the month. “These new episodes will take the story to new heights, introducing new cast members, as well as bringing back some of Star Trek‘s most beloved characters from Deep Space Nine and Star Trek Voyager,” they said in an announcement on their website. “Every part of production is being ramped up, from the creative team involved in the scripts, as well as the design team, wardrobe, and many more Star Trek actors, as Renegades moves into creating and producing the first full twelve-episode season.”

  1. πŸ™ The Chekov stuff was my main draw to the series. I want to see him in as much as possible while he still can be. That is extremely disappointing to me.

  2. I think his main gripe was the lack of focus/screen time on the Chakotay character. Perhaps they’ve offered him a substantial/pivotal role in Renegades.

  3. I’m still on the fence about this series, but I’m pretty psyched for Nog and Chakotay to be joining the crew. I can’t wait to see how they fit it into the storyline.

I feel honored to have the opportunity to play Chekov throughout the past 40 plus years. Yet, I did always wish there was a way to have Chekov be more involved with the action in the series.nAs I hear the story being developed for Chekovu2019s send off, I am pleased and excited to see all of the ways the character will expand and explore new grounds. Here is the direct link to the page, so you can be a Renegade & claim your reward there πŸ™‚ nnHappy Thanksgiving to all of you and your families :)"n————————————————————————–nTone of the show is Darker & Edgier & that's nice πŸ™‚ Phase 2 is for prod. of eps. 2&3 & hope that goal is reached. With Kickstarter it's reach or get canceled. With Indiegogo is different, but Kickstarter is better choice for STR. For example, if STR team only netted 100k, that would not be enough to make the episode – so they don't want to be responsible to make an episode without the necessary funds with which to do it. Some new faces in Eps. 2&3 are beautiful talented Terry Farrel "Jadzia Dax from DS9", Cirroc Lofton "Jake Sisko from DS9", Aron Eisenberg "Nog from DS9" & Hana Hatae "Molly O'Brien from DS9". nnSome new Writing strength has joined for future episodes: http://melindasnodgrass.com/ She's worked with Star Trek: The Next Generation & has made other good projects. New experienced SFX Makeup Artist has joined the team for future episodes. Quality will Go Up from Pilot Movie No Doubt "wasn't bad then" & it's a Joy moment for many Trekkie's to see Jadzia Dax, Jake Sisko & few other Trek cast returning to Trek Universe with Star Trek Renegades :)nnThoughts by Tim Russ: https://www.facebook.com/STRtheSeries/videos/1070533049644754/ nHe sings & plays guitar.

  5. Planned time for next episode is only few months πŸ™‚ I hope you support and wish you good times with Renegades. Check out the FB fan page that i linked “didn’t know that this site gives direct videos” and join there πŸ™‚

  6. There might be even more some surprise cast later πŸ™‚ Walter wants to have a explosive ending for Chekov and i hope you spread the message of Renegades project and maybe even become a backer πŸ™‚ Wish you good rest of the year 2015 and time with Renegades πŸ™‚

  7. Yes, I found Chakotay to be quite an interesting character overall.nnnAgain, from what I understand of the situation, if Mr. Beltran had been perhaps a little less forthright in his dealings with the producers, his character would have been featured more in due course.nnnCaveat though, none of us know exactly what went on behind closed doors for sure. Who knows how complex the tensions and politics were off set.nnnOf all the Star Trek shows, it appears Voyager had the most stresses and strains between actors/producers.
