Star Trek: Renegades (Pilot Episode 1)

 

About Star Trek: Renegades:

Star Trek Renegades is an indie fan funded and supported Web tv Series, produced by Sky Conway and includes a combination of familiar Star Trek characters and actors, plus a group of sizzling, new rising stars.

The Story:

When a seemingly unstoppable new enemy threatens the very existence of the the world, Admiral Pavel Chekov (Walter Koenig – Star Trek TOS) is pressured to work outside the boundaries of Starfleet’s rules to fight this lethal new foe.

When planet after planet winks out of existence and Starfleet refuses to act, Chekov turns to Commander Tuvok (Tim Russ – Star Trek Voyager, who additionally takes on the directing cap), the brand new head of Starfleet’s covert operations division, Section 31. Collectively, they assemble a brand new elite strike-force, consisting of rogues, outcasts and criminals, led by the fearless but haunted Lexxa Singh (Adrienne Wilkinson).

The Renegades’ mission is straightforward: tackle an army and cease their chief, Borrada (Bruce Younger), from destroying the the world. Outnumbered and outgunned, the ragtag crew is in an adrenaline-fuled race against time and space. However they quickly discover their foes are the least of their worries: the real trouble could also be coming from within!

Star Trek: Renegades stars Walter Koenig (reprising his position as Admiral Chekov), Adrienne Wilkinson, Sean Young, Manu Intiraymi, Gary Graham, Robert Picardo, Corin Nemec, Bruce Young, Tim Russ, Chasty Ballesteros, Edward Furlong, Courtney Peldon, Larissa Gomes, Richard Herd and Herbert Jefferson Jr., and introducing Crystal Conway.

Star Trek: Renegades – boldly going where no Trek has gone before!

Trivia

Moordenaar is the Dutch word for murderer.
Captain Alvarez is the captain of the USS Archer which is named after commander Jonathan Archer who was captain of the first interstellar ship enterprise.
According to Star Trek Canon (as well as Star Trek: Voyager (1995) and Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country (1991)), Tuvok was born in the year 2264, which would make him 124 years old at the time setting of this film (2388).
The quote that Lexxa Singh recites is from the poem Invictus by William Ernest Henley
No Stardate is given at any point in the episode, merely that it is set in the year 2388. Since this is set in the original Star Trek time line, and 10 years after Star Trek: Voyager(1995), the appropriate Stardate would be somewhere in between Stardates 65000 and 66000.
The film takes place in 2388.

    This could be a series on Science fiction Network. Can’t wait for episode
    two!

  2. hmrhuang on January 4, 2016 at 1:57 pm

    Bitch in the glasses annoyed the hell out of me; just shitty acting
    and camera presence. And who in the 24th century wears glasses?! (A visor
    I can understand if you’re blind…)

  3. Boris Babic on January 4, 2016 at 3:46 am

    One thing is sure, it’s far better than Tim Russ previous Star Trek
    project: Of gods and men.
    One more thing, many people don’t seem to understand that this is not a
    stand alone movie, it’s meant to be a pilot for a series. As a pilot I
    think it’s good. There’s room (a lot) for improvement but there’s something
    there and I think the potential is worth exploring.

    <3 Tuvok, Icheb, Chekov and among the new characters I mostly like Lexxa
    and Fixer.

  4. solitonqt on January 3, 2016 at 9:04 pm

    Love you Icheb. Thanx for bringing Icheb back from Voyager

  5. Movie Talks on January 3, 2016 at 8:48 pm

    Why is everything have to be dark and saving earth. Why couldn’t you just
    give me a first contact story of a new species that would be cool

  6. Gregg Wion on January 3, 2016 at 5:35 pm

    Very much enjoyed, Mr. Russ. Nice to see how a timeline might fold. You are
    invited to consider the briefings of the allies of humanity, because
    #homeworldsecuritymatters

  7. Ross Manitoba on January 3, 2016 at 5:22 pm

    Love this… I read in the comments after watching Renegades.. That this is
    a fan film. But as i was watching it I was thinking that it was low budget
    pilot.. If it is a FAN FILM it is probably the best ever made… thanks for
    sharing it…

  8. Robert Pearson on January 3, 2016 at 1:24 pm

    Like others have said, it’s hard to be critical of someone’s labor of love.
    Just for some viewer feedback though, the thing that turns me off is the
    violent, brutal tone of some of it. Coming up for unique ideas of violence
    (ie “first kill”) with so much real violence in the culture is kind of
    irresponsible. Action film violence and horror movies (as in the reboot of
    Dr. Who) don’t have to be merged with sci fi. I know that will eliminate a
    large audience who doesn’t like that kind of stuff.

  9. Joe Buss on January 3, 2016 at 12:51 pm

    This comes off like “A bunch of b-list Sci-Fi Actors all got drunk after a
    Convention and decided to make a movie”. I really think the effects were
    okay on this, and the production values were good, but what was the point,
    exactly?

  10. Admiral Randell on January 3, 2016 at 10:42 am

    I don’t like the yellow interior

  11. Geoff Upton on January 3, 2016 at 8:41 am

    damn brilliant film! i want more of this! ? keep going! keep supporting
    them everyone!

  12. CS1B3 on January 3, 2016 at 4:54 am

    Still better than many other Fan Films… in my oppinion. I can say that
    I´m looking forward to the next Episode… well done Gentleman ;)

  13. svartvist on January 2, 2016 at 1:23 pm

    TOOOOOO much music. Tension and drama is created by story and acting. And a
    bespectacled matron in the 24th century??? A star wars clad bounty hunter
    character??

  14. meamscifi on January 1, 2016 at 1:36 pm

    no close captions? I am deaf and can’t understand a damn word what they are
    saying….

  15. stuart940 on December 27, 2015 at 9:21 am

    That was great, apart from the glasses.

  16. Frank x on December 27, 2015 at 6:15 am

    i think Aliensex will be fun. 8-)

  17. SUPERSIZEME2DAY on December 27, 2015 at 5:33 am

    real b rated, but i love it its gritty and dark a star trek for a new
    millenia

  18. jason cheng on December 27, 2015 at 12:15 am

    very nice ! very exciting !

  19. Mara natha on December 26, 2015 at 4:40 pm

    Why don’t they realize that the very heart of SF is in the writing? I was
    and remain confused about much of this movie. I did enjoy seeing so many of
    my favorite characters and actors, however. Icheb was AWESOME! What a blast
    from the past. Great crossovers from Stargate, Star Wars, and Alien Nation.
    Koenig still can’t act. I was really hoping his great, great granddaughter
    would sacrifice herself as her so called acting was painful to watch. I
    liked the new female Kirk like character in Singh, but she acted too much
    like Worf (no brains and hit something). Still, she had a good look. Too
    many chicks were added to the cast. In fact, the cast needs a good buzz
    cut. Start with the Orion and the assassin. Buh bye!

  20. Charles Alexander Zorn on December 25, 2015 at 7:28 pm

    I think it has D and direction problems. Writing and acting can be revised
    and reshot.

  21. Shawn Hollahan on December 25, 2015 at 9:16 am

    YAY… I’m so impressed by this work of fan art. I feel its off a bit in
    terms of the Trek premise of EXPLORATION but still was fun. Please develop
    Sean Youngs character (why is she wearing glasses in the 24th century??)….
    i already love her…. I’ve never liked the actor who plays the captain of
    the Archer…. please kill him off. Please give Echeb a chance to enjoy life
    again…. redemption and forgiveness… the techno-man who has a spiritual
    awakening? Does every original trek cast member have to wind up as an
    admiral? How about chekov becomes a stained glass artist or something.?
    He’s no admiral. The villains weren’t scary enough…. rubber mask look and
    dread locks were kind of racist. Make the aliens WEIRDER……Looking forward
    to episode 2

  22. tanx360 on December 24, 2015 at 5:04 pm

    I have been a Horror Scifi fan for 30 years and I Thinks Renegades is well
    done, and great! and deserves A series or another movie! Bravo the the cast
    and CREW!

  23. Reptilian DNA on December 24, 2015 at 4:14 pm

    People need to appreciate this. The new movies are killing the franchise.
    Its going to be the fans that keep the true spirit of star trek alive, not
    big hollywood.

    Think about it this way. hollywood just wants your money. The people of
    this film just want to entertain you and keep the series alive.

  24. DeadPixel on December 24, 2015 at 12:50 pm

    It has an interesting story, but the dialogue and acting needs some serious
    work, a bigger budget wouldn’t hurt either. It has potential though, you
    have my donation.

  25. DrGJames Baxter on December 24, 2015 at 12:43 pm

    i liked it , looking for more and better

  26. Chris Warzenski on December 24, 2015 at 8:44 am

    I really don’t want to say this because I was hoping for more, but this
    just didn’t work for me. The writing isn’t that great, and the acting isn’t
    either. Too many different aliens makes it feel more like Babylon 5 and the
    plot and main characters may be sci-fi but are totally out of place in the
    Star Trek universe. It feels like someone wanted to take all the things
    they thought were cool about the Star Trek universe and various series and
    put them all into one episode. It just doesn’t work.

  27. Excel 101 on December 24, 2015 at 2:54 am

    Wait… i’m confused… why is princess Leia in this?

  28. Lou Perna on December 23, 2015 at 5:50 pm

    I’ve been a ST fan since I sat watching it on NBC with my dad so long ago.
    This was a fun to watch little movie. Enjoyable. Wasn’t expecting Gone with
    the Wind caliber. It was entertaining. But I was wondering if there were
    any others that got a particular vibe out of this like me. Did I just see a
    new A-Team meets Star Trek pilot?

  29. GoldenSandslash15 on December 23, 2015 at 4:16 pm

    Is anyone else kinda annoyed that one of the characters in this show wears
    glasses, despite the fact that The Wrath of Khan showed that glasses
    weren’t used anymore in the Star Trek universe?

  30. Joseph Mollohan III on December 23, 2015 at 7:04 am

    This is amazing, good luck on working the next episode.

  31. Hope Lanza (Embra) on December 23, 2015 at 12:59 am

    All you haters need to go back & take a Red Pill. This Blows Away any of
    that JJ Abrams Crap. I’ve been with Trek since TOS first premiered. I’ve
    Seen Every Episode of Every series. This is probably the best “fan film” I
    have ever had the pleasure to watch. Maybe there was no big Hollywood
    budget. But Guess What? TOS had next to No budget. And the show was still
    great. Because You Cared about the characters, and what happened to them.
    And they told great stories. Same thing here. I also liked how they “wove
    in” all the other *Trek* universes & still stayed true to the premise of
    TOS.

  38. THOMAS ADAMS on December 21, 2015 at 3:03 pm

    I am a retired professional writer. After watching Star Trek: Renegades, my
    comments are from the heart. I believe Renegades has a chance of succeeding
    if you keep the stories simple. Using “Star Wars – A New Hope” as an
    example; the story line is very basic. In addition, we learn who the bad
    guys are right from the start, and they’re very well defined. In Renegades,
    it’s let’s do this, so we can do that. Nothing or no one is clearly
    defined. That happens later in the story. Meanwhile, the viewer is off to
    the kitchen for more snacks.Keep the stories simple. and the villan well
    defined and you’ll do great.

  39. TheChobyter on December 21, 2015 at 9:25 am

    Nice Work Guys! I looking forward to Episode 2 ;)

  40. James Monahan on December 21, 2015 at 5:33 am

    This was fun. Being a Star Trek fan for something like half a century ( I
    saw “The Cage” in a S.F.east bay theater or possibly on KTVU before the
    series started) , I have learned to look past the thin spots in special
    effects and accept the over acting as part of the show. What keeps me
    watching is the whole sociological aspect of the show.

  41. Tony Anderson on December 20, 2015 at 8:35 pm

    Geez everyone calm down. It wasn’t any worse than the pilots for every Star
    Trek series. Rough acting and poor story polishing is part and parcel. I
    don’t think it was that bad honestly. A little syfy channel, but not bad.
    Ever since the year of hell episodes of voyager, I’ve been interested in a
    darker Star Trek storyline. I’m appreciative of all the actors who signed
    on, and the super fans who made it a reality.. Was fun reminiscing.

  42. Soutrik Banerjee on December 20, 2015 at 4:30 pm

    Slow clap

    discharge in [that] war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are
    given to it.

  44. Ivana Peixoto on December 20, 2015 at 7:25 am

    Very nice! But I was expecting more renegades like Nichols, maybe Shatner,
    Takei, and someone from DS9… 🙂 But I really had a good time! I’ll
    support it!

  45. SciFiGuy66 on December 20, 2015 at 3:08 am

    About 44 minutes into the film, the lead alien (whose name I have
    forgotten) tells Lexxa, “Your mother should have ripped you from her womb!”
    That should tell you everything you need to know about the script. I was
    tempted to stop watching at that point, but as one of the early financial
    backers of this project, I felt compelled to labor through the rest of it.
    Look, I know it’s a low-budget fan film, not a major studio production. I
    also know that even big-bucks Hollywood movies sometimes suffer from a bad
    script and even worse acting (I’m looking at you, George Lucas and Hayden
    Christensen). Gary Graham, who was wonderful as Ambassador Soval in
    “Enterprise,” is utterly wasted here. A BIG disappointment after the
    unexpectedly good “Of Gods and Men.”

  46. leshpar on December 19, 2015 at 4:12 pm

    I am a huge Star Trek fan, and I grew up with TNG. I am going to be
    comparing this to encounter at farpoint because I think that episode did a
    perfect job doing what it needed to do. It introduced characters and gave
    you a chance to feel like you got to recognize them, it told a complete
    story, and it didn’t feel rushed. All of which this episode does wrong. It
    has too much going on and even introduces side stories that get unresolved
    (either that or I am too stupid to understand what’s going on). The pace
    feels rushed, some of the reactions don’t feel authentic, and, worst of
    all, this doesn’t feel like star trek to me. Star Trek is my ideal future.
    Its what humanity needs to strive for. This is dark, filled with
    conspiracies, and the technology and costumes feel like a huge step
    backwards from even TNG season 1. I mean, one character wears glasses.
    Noone wears glasses in the 24th century. What I assume to be the main
    characters (the rebel ship) doesn’t at all feel like a crew that I could
    ever like. It, again, does not feel like Star Trek at all.

    I really like the CG work though.

  47. thedavecorp on December 19, 2015 at 2:58 pm

    Well made, poor story.

  48. Jonah Blake on December 19, 2015 at 3:34 am

    Holy crap dis is epic!

  49. Holly Hollywood on December 18, 2015 at 8:20 pm

    Yay for Corin.

  50. Nick Sambides Jr. on December 18, 2015 at 3:15 pm

    This is a really good effort.

  51. Flying Sloth on December 18, 2015 at 2:50 pm

    it’s a good effort but man, I frick’ n hate deep space 9 and voyager and
    this takes most of its stuff from DS9 and STV it just makes me want to
    cringe I like it back before everything was a soap opera pretending to be a
    legit sci Fi story on top of that, that’s what made DS9 so offensive to me
    because star trek is the top dog of fleshed out legit sci Fi TV shows, and
    to see such a lame soap opera take its place, curse you DS9.

  52. David Fisher on December 18, 2015 at 5:57 am

    After acting in several independent films, I know first hand how hard it is
    to create something of this magnitude on a tight budget. I’m actually quite
    impressed with what has been done here. I hope more keep coming. Even just
    a few years ago, this kind of thing wasn’t possible, and even if done, was
    only seen by a few. What a great way to showcase good work, expand a
    budget, and make the future episodes even more robust. Well done to all
    involved.

  53. FIREFOXNEWS ONLINE™ on December 18, 2015 at 3:23 am

    I have been a Star Trek fan for decades and this was an awesome film. Makes
    me wish my dream of being an Actor and being part of Star Trek come alive
    again; if anyone connected to this reads my comments think about it…

    Live long & prosper…

  54. platformone on December 18, 2015 at 12:15 am

    A suggestion. You need to reduce the background music quite a bit, as it’s
    very hard to hear what the actors are saying.

  55. Deaf-Tariq Al Ghufayli on December 17, 2015 at 9:06 pm

  56. Rod Guy on December 17, 2015 at 4:05 pm

    Bloody fantastic
    some bad acting and plot holes
    however so many great ideas that belong in Star Trek. It looks like Star
    Trek to me 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 :)

  57. Sinbad Naiver (Sinbad316) on December 17, 2015 at 12:55 pm

    although it,S unfair that starfleet are the bad guys in this… :/

  58. Tilo Christen on December 17, 2015 at 5:01 am

    The approach was not bad! It lacks a Spielberg!

  59. Captain Squareyez on December 16, 2015 at 11:20 pm

    This was awesome. Great story telling, effects, acting. What more could
    anyone want….other than more trek :)

  60. Sonic Boone Media Group on December 16, 2015 at 4:42 pm

    that prison scene didn’t remind me of guardians of the galaxy at all

  61. Yolo !!! on December 16, 2015 at 4:10 pm

    such….bad…..acting.
    shame on you tuvok.

  62. Randy Moffat on December 16, 2015 at 3:47 pm

    Overall, i’d say it was almost a First rate production. If it had even a
    portion of the production money the Paramount films have, this could be
    awesome

  63. Catherine Smith (none) on December 16, 2015 at 9:06 am

    This simply can never be called Star Trek. The cinematography is very poor,
    the music is bollocks – literally. The story line is not grabbing and
    intriguing, but plain annoying.
    I see some familiar acting faces. If those guys have any self respect as
    actors they should bugger off from this disgrace ASAP.

  64. Don O'Rear on December 16, 2015 at 6:10 am

    I thought that they did a good job….good to see more Trek….

  65. Jeffrey Lancaster on December 16, 2015 at 1:57 am

    great for a fan film. granted there are a lot of weaknesses, but I’m keen
    to see more, and that’s the goal of a pilot.

  66. SomeCreepinaVan on December 15, 2015 at 9:09 pm

    Way too many close-ups. Please stop, it’s just ugly uninspired
    cinematography. Close-ups are not needed. I’m not into watching talking
    heads. The shaky cam needs to go also. Why make these sets if you’re going
    to waste filling the canvas (screen) with faces.

  67. C. Coleman on December 15, 2015 at 3:35 pm

    Very good: decent acting, great production values and enough space vixens
    to satisfy even the pickiest nerd! I give it five stars. Also Chekhov and
    a few others from older shows helps ground it in the Star Trek continuum.

  68. alan lawless on December 15, 2015 at 12:02 pm

    Star gate and Star trek in one movie? But Ilike it!

  82. Siansonea Orande on December 11, 2015 at 5:00 pm

    There was a lot I liked about this. I think if it just had a bit more
    post-production, a retake or two, and maybe another pass at the script,
    this could have been a home run. I think just looping all the dialogue
    would have made a huge difference. It was great seeing so many familiar
    faces.

  83. Violanta on December 11, 2015 at 3:53 pm

    Renegades seems very dark for Star Trek. I cling to Star Trek because it is
    based in the ideas of utopia, a rarity among a vast landscape of dystopian
    fiction these days. Now it seems that both Star Trek and Star Wars are
    skating down this path. Is not Game of Thrones enough portraiture of
    humanity at its lowest? I want to see the intellectual mythology of DS9
    tapped into again. I will say I liked Icheb’s returned character, but after
    Voyager left us with the Doctor fighting for the rights of holograms, it is
    difficult to see society backsliding from that, transforming a rescued Borg
    back into a Borg. Perhaps, however, things aren’t as bad as they seem and
    further development will reveal circumstances to the darkness that do not
    compromise what makes Star Trek, well, Star Trek.

    It’s good. I like it. It could be better though. One touch in particular
    that could help, would be removing the music during dialog, outside action
    sequences.

    Also, I realize that you guys were going for something like the new films
    with some of your angles and lighting, but that will distance this from the
    other shows, and make it feel more like Andromeda, or Lexx, or other future
    punk shows.

    it’s not a bad thing, but it’s different, and will bug some people. lol.
    Brace yourselves.

    I’m subscribing. This is really cool, and I hope it keeps getting better.

    Live long, and prosper!

  85. Patrick McIntosh on December 10, 2015 at 9:05 pm

    I certainly do not mean to be a kill joy. And this message is to the folks
    who made this movie. At the beginning of this movie you’re asking the
    viewer to be a monetary contributor to future episodes with the promise of
    a DVD. Do (apparently not) you all not realize that any video posted to
    this site can be freely downloaded?

  86. thomas vinelli on December 10, 2015 at 9:54 am

    +thomas vinelli I respectfully disagree. Have you seen Star Trek Continues?
    The feel and look of TOS. It has to do with writing and acting. Even, “Of
    Gods and Men” worked well. I did Graeme , I don’t care for it.Talk about
    bad acting except for Vic as Kirk, he is a pro, but rest of the cast not so
    good. As far as the feel of TOS ,it does ,however i’m done with Kirk and
    Spock, there is more to Star Trek then Kirk & Spock. As a hard core fan,
    I’m looking for new stories and characters,not Star Trek rehashed over and
    over again. It seems people want Star Trek as it was. You realize the tv
    series were all different from each other.DS9 was a big change from the
    rest of them. If you were an actor on Star Trek would want to keep doing
    the same thing over and over again?? Renegades is an attempt to do just
    that. This and other fan based projects need money ,but also writers. As
    far as I know EP2 does have a former Star Trek writer plus new former Star
    Trek cast members ,donating their time to make Star Trek better. How many
    actors do you know are willing to act for free to make something better?
    Renegades is what it is with what they have.

  88. TheReaverOfDarkness on December 10, 2015 at 12:41 am

    This was really terrible by Star Trek standards, but it’s still by far the
    closest to what I want. I support.

    Please explain Tuvok. He should be younger, and with a degenerative
    condition in advanced stages. Shouldn’t he be dead by now?

  89. Vendrix on December 9, 2015 at 8:58 pm

    a lot of hasbeens in this movie….

  91. Avraham rosenblum on December 9, 2015 at 8:04 am

    Wonderful and fantastic. Thrilled to see Star Trek again.

  92. D L Johnson on December 9, 2015 at 7:23 am

    I hate to thumbs down it too though I give it “E” for effort. Acting too
    weak. Surprise ending with Fixer though (nice turn around). Tuvok didn’t
    keep his promise, magic marker eyebrows on the Vulcan. Weak space and
    ground fighting scenes. I expected far more and probably won’t waste my
    time with upcoming episodes. You stole dilithium, can’t help you even
    though you all saved us from death….what??? smh

    Work witch dialogue and plot. Make episodes shorter but more interesting.
    FX and 3D are wery good:) Make more modern hand combat.
    Good luck!

  95. Tomi Mcdoom on December 8, 2015 at 6:31 pm

    So Icheb’s parents engineered him to be a sacrificial weapon to be used
    against the Borg, which he escapes thanks to Starfleet, and then Starfleet
    makes him into a weapon. Harsh Starfleet…harsh.

    I am so happy with so much of this, the music, the sound effects from
    different series, the ship designs the new(ish) enemies and the epic flavor
    of the show. I was skeptical of this attempt at making Star Trek darker and
    grittier, but now it sort of reminds of of “Firefly”. That’s not a bad
    thing. 🙂 I really LOVED how you had a worshiper of the Pa Rate (sp???) in
    there as well as a Nausicaan, BUT I didn’t like that either one of them
    died. I would love to have seen both of them develop. Please please please
    bring in a Nausicaan who is more than just a plot device or piraty scenery.
    I can’t wait to see the Klingons!

  103. tideoftime on December 5, 2015 at 4:34 pm

    Some people may bitch, but for a non-studio work this is pretty good. The
    script is woody, true, but the cast is good and the visuals are as good as
    anything SyFy ever puts out, generally speaking. I give it a thumbs up.

    I can’t believe how many people came here just to piss on this. Then again,
    actually, I can. Seems YouTube is mostly a hangout for haters and people
    willing to sit around on their asses and piss on the cornflakes of people
    who are actually getting out there and doing things and making things.
    Nobody says you have to watch it. Problem is, because so many of those
    willing to be vocal are the negative people, the creative folks wind up
    feeling overwhelmingly dissed when they shouldn’t. I enjoyed this. It
    wasn’t perfect, but nobody should have expected it to be. It was FUN, and
    it was Star Trek. And I hope they make more things for lazy folks like me
    who love watching this kind of effort while I sit on my butt and knit. I
    can’t afford to back them, or I would. Best I can do is cheer from the
    sidelines and say, ignore the trolls and learn from the comments that make
    sense.

  115. Eddie Allen on December 2, 2015 at 11:41 am

    I am a devoted Star Trek fan and looked forward to watching this episode
    but half way into it I had to just turn it off. This was pure propaganda.
    Anyone who knows the truth about the Civil War know it had absolutely
    nothing to do with actual slavery but financial tyranny and the results
    destroyed the Organic Constitution of the United States Of America and made
    this Government into a “Corporation” ..Made every one a citizen (Property)
    of that Corporation and slaves of all of us. This episode made me sick and
    worse, using my beloved Star Trek to do it.

  116. Sudoku Sudoku on December 2, 2015 at 12:14 am

    Ahahaha what a neaderthalism. There’s a movie about how the world is turned
    into some kind of utopia where people watch such shits, and it’s taken over
    by Satanists. And there’s one guy that goes to the movies and sees one of
    those and he laughs loudly. The vedas are much closer to the alien than
    this :D. It’s totally reversed. It damages humanity and creates
    psychologically sick people. This western capitalism causes lots of damage.
    Soviets were much better with their movies , at least they were for real

    Thanks, it was wonderful.

  120. Eugene Darron on November 30, 2015 at 6:48 pm

    I have to say that it was pretty interesting for a fan film. Granted it
    was not the story line of a Hollywood series or anything but this has
    potential to get us there. On another note, one thing I have noticed about
    die hard Trekkies is that you guys are way to critical of how someone takes
    their vision. Look, Gene envisioned TNG and died part way through the
    production of it. Everything after that is the image of someone else and
    people have the right to take it in a direction they want it to go, not how
    you would think GR would have wanted it. My God, get out of the basement
    and live life a little, it is just not that serious.

  121. Renix Skidmore on November 30, 2015 at 8:42 am

    From the get go….. Negative comments?!?!. What is with you people??!?? I
    am no Trekkie… But it seems like a bunch of you are butt hurt that they
    took from ALL alternate time lines, and came up with an ORIGINAL idea, and
    put into play as a movie. Yet you all were anticipating. Shatner, and
    Nimoy, like performances. Need I remind you those characters are one an
    ambassador now in the time line, then LOST in time… Remember that, and
    the other… Well… he’s dead. (Star Trek: Generations). These are NEW
    characters, that have NO ties to the Federation. Duah.. Thus the Title
    RENEGADES… Hello. So they aren’t going to HAVE a structured COMMAND crew,
    or petty nuances, and love interests. They are OUTLAWS, fighting for a
    cause, Their OWN. Cause.. If you didn’t PAY attention to the last comments
    at the END of this one movie. They were ALL set up by someone HIGH up in
    the FEDERATION. Hello… The “good guys”. I think what you all aren’t
    liking is the fact someone is putting a bit of REALISM into Star Trek. That
    any form of Government.. No matter how peaceful they “claim” to be. Is
    never really peaceful, and will ALWAYS have corruption within. That is the
    PREMISE of this whole potential series. So… go go get over the boo hooing
    that it’s NOT Star Trek. Cause it is.. Just with a REALISTIC twist, with
    spaceships, and aliens… Nuff Said.

  124. Jacob Joyce on November 29, 2015 at 8:55 am

    I can’t find myself supporting this project. The visuals had their ups and
    downs, some sections were great, others were exceptional and a few were
    terrible, but overall quite good. I found the writing, acting and pacing of
    the episode to be wanting though, also the camera work felt a little shoddy
    and the low fps shots really didn’t do the show any favours.

  125. Robert Setter on November 28, 2015 at 5:16 pm

    There’s so much potential here, but the execution was so poor! WHHHHYYYY???
    I felt at times that I was watching choreographed fight scenes on Fox Kids!
    Oh my gosh! And Icheb!! Damn it! I was Voyager fan (not gonna apologize for
    that either) and I enjoyed his character. Among all the poor writing, the
    writers very much failed to remember that Icheb *has been a weapon
    literally since his conception* and now they’re making him all emo about
    it! BAD WRITERS! SHAME ON YOU!!! I can live with wooden acting. I tolerate
    a lot of it, doesn’t bother me, but bad writing really gets under my skin.

  126. Kyle Colbourne on November 28, 2015 at 4:34 pm

    well done you did very good job on the graphics and the other stuff on the

  127. idealist4life on November 28, 2015 at 3:01 pm

    All the recognizabnle faces are great, but the background musci all the way
    through is annoying. It seems like if there was jsut a professionals sound
    person who was more followed the way all of the Star Treks were doen that
    woudl help a lot. Every sceen does not need dramatic music consantly.

  128. Garrett Rivers on November 28, 2015 at 2:36 pm

    i go with alexreynard the effort is great and getting big actors and

    your own universe instead of trying to match your ideas with star trek.

  134. G Gregory on November 27, 2015 at 12:09 pm

    Fairly disappointed. Special Effects are kind of thin and plastic looking.
    Plot is way too heavy handed…. Trekkers are, as a rule, fairly sharp, and
    it just seems that every sceen just slaps the viewer with telegraphed story
    lines….music is blah, and I mean, really? Admiral Nimoy? I kind wish I
    hadn’t supported…. And having Grant Imahara is a grand idea…too bad he
    is wasted on this…..sigh…..had such high hopes…..

  136. Robert Dammeyer on November 26, 2015 at 9:16 pm

    Sorry, but story was somewhat confusing with lots of coincidence and the
    acting was overall wooden. You really didn’t care about anybody. Villains
    reminded me of blue 1970’s Planet of the Apes. Visuals were of video game
    quality (good but at times laughingly distracting). Ultimately the entire
    film was dull. Reminded me a lot of SyFy’s Dark Matter, only Dark Matter is
    much better with far more interesting characters, intrigue and storylines.

  137. Isaac Tercero on November 26, 2015 at 2:02 pm

    I loooooove Star Trek. Almost to the level of obsession and I’m a donor to
    this project but guys…do you need help with the writing? Some dialogue is
    good while other portions, to be perfectly honest, is just really bad. I
    think some of your writers are not Star Trek fans. You guys have a ton of
    great material here but a lot of the dialogue feels forced and not Star
    Trek like.

  138. ringosis on November 26, 2015 at 10:38 am

  139. andtheniwasphone on November 25, 2015 at 10:16 pm

    Just another fan film pissing over Gene’s vision.
    Where’s the philosophy? Where are the ethical undertones? This is just a
    political drama. I’m sure others will disagree, and in its own right the
    film is good. But it’s not Star Trek.
    Disappointed, but then again everything went downhill post the reboot.

  140. Kevin on November 25, 2015 at 9:34 pm

    This is unfortunate. I can tell that the people that made this really love
    Star Trek, but they completely failed at capturing the feel of Star Trek.
    The TV series and movies (even the JJ Abrams movies rebooting and making
    the series more accessible to non fans) all share a unique feel that make
    them Star Trek. I felt none of that watching this. In my opinion, the
    single most important thing that makes Star Trek what it is, is deep
    characters that you explore and know. This film did not introduce any of
    its characters at all. None of the new characters are properly introduced
    early enough in the film which ruins all of the action because nothing is
    at stake. Also, the previously existing characters feel strange and
    disconnected from who they should be. There is no context as to how they
    got to where they are at this point in the timeline. Maybe this stuff will
    be sorted out later in the film but that’s too late for me. I made it may
    15 minutes in and still had no idea what any of the characters objectives
    were or what the central conflict was. Also, whoever was the director of
    photography on this, unfortunately I have to give most of what I saw of the
    lighting a failing grade. I realize that the budget was very low and that
    the gear available to the crew may not have been the most ideal but that’s
    not really the problem here. Most of the issues I saw, can be correct at
    any budget level. The first scene was a complete disaster of green screen
    reflection all over the actress. Some of the lighting doesn’t seem to fit
    with how the virtual sets are lit. And exposure, the exposure is not
    correct. There are way too many overexposed bright spots in some scenes and
    other scenes are underexposed and dim in places. On top of that, some shots
    have no contrast all. The cinematography is just inconsistent. Some shots
    are great others are not. All the bad shots tarnish the merits of the good
    ones.
    Star Trek is in the title but this is not Star Trek in any way. I’m sorry
    to anyone that worked on this. I know you all worked your butts off making
    this film.

  141. Jeremy Nolan on November 25, 2015 at 5:15 pm

    One huge problem with this. There is a guy in the that was the Vulcan
    master. From Star Trek enterprise. Now he is a normal human on that ship
    with the Borg. The messed that up

  142. supra19851 on November 25, 2015 at 1:11 pm

  146. Jon on November 24, 2015 at 7:12 pm

    Great start but I think writing can be a little more intelligent and Star
    Trek based . That is what makes the series so good. Tackle ideologies and
    things like that . I realize money was an issue that why I cant complain .
    Any trek is good trek. That being said focus on the story and not so much
    visual as story is what made the original so good and visual wasn’t that
    much of a factor it was the 60’s and they used a shoe string budget as
    well .Editing and sequence need to be smoother as well . Good start let see
    where this goes! LLAP

  152. JayMar 1943 on November 22, 2015 at 2:41 pm

    I am a Trekker from way back, and still enjoy watching every flavor of Star
    Trek available. I know a lot of work went into this movie. The acting is
    horrendous, with the exception of the old Star Trek actors carrying the
    load. The writing is poor too much wild action and no plot. I was
    particularly angry at the idiocy of the old lady WITH GLASSES a role that
    should have been given to a much younger woman and the stupid guy with a
    cap and goggles. for god’s sake this is the 24th Century. If in the 21st
    Century we can get lasik, imagine what they will do in 300 more years! I
    couldn’t watch beyond 40 minutes. I am sorry. This was terrible.

  154. Thom Cote on November 7, 2015 at 5:16 am

    The visual and sound fx are inconsistent but overall pretty damn good for a
    fan film. The real issue is the consistently awkward, wooden writing and
    acting – it’s just a very uninteresting movie to sit through.

  155. Graeme Evans on November 3, 2015 at 3:20 am

    everything in this is so awkward. esecially the writing, 54:35 “in a few
    days the average suface temperature will be zero”…zero what? absoute
    zero? zero degrees? meanwhile the earth is in dire peril, and everyone
    involved is just calmly having a polite conversation about it, “what
    happening mummy?” “i dunno” amazing.

  156. elHippieSupremo on October 31, 2015 at 7:18 pm

    The visuals are really good; Judging by some comments, the story sucks.
    Team up with some of the other fanfictions! The visuals and even some
    acting is cheesy (in new voyages, Aurora, and continues… mostly new
    voyages) But I enjoyed them for their story. That seems to be one of Star
    Trek’s main strengths: it tells a good story (a positive story, one
    pleasing to the ear, from which a moral is learned.) (and usually concludes
    it by the end of the episode!). Just some thoughts as I begin to watch…

  157. magellanthecat on October 26, 2015 at 2:14 pm

    Maybe I’m totally off-base, but the character that worked the least for me,
    and pretty much ruined every scene she was part of, was the Dr. I don’t
    know if it was the lighting or the make-up, or what, but she never seemed
    to belong in the scene with everyone else. That’s also the character I
    would most like to recast. Apologies to Mrs Young, but that just didn’t
    make the grade.
    That’s my only complaint, which, for me, is pretty rare. Why can’t the
    current movies put out by paramount be this good? (Or in any way good?)

  158. Parker8752 on October 24, 2015 at 2:51 pm

    This has potential. Would be interesting to see what could be done with a
    half decent budget (especially once the actors get more used to playing
    their roles)…

    this clearly cost quite a bit to produce, and while there are some great
    elements to it (the archer is brilliant- looking, for example), there is
    more about it that is wrong, than right…. For instance, the sets are
    REALLY bad, some of the CGI is pretty terrible, the sound effects are a
    pretty gnarly mish-mash of SFX from various trek shows and
    movies….there’s no consistency, which makes for a pretty jarring
    experience. It’s kinda like stepping on a whoopie-cushion, and instead of
    it making a fart noise, it makes a sound like a car horn.. The costuming is
    also pretty bad. Those do NOT look like proper Starfleet uniforms. They
    look like cheapy halloween costume knockoffs…comm badges are crap..very
    disappointing. Sets, CGI, costume, and sound effects are essential parts of
    creating a believable world. They fell down pretty hard on this. The acting
    from most of the cast was kinda “meh”. Russ and Koenig nailed
    it….everyone else’s performance just felt like they were trying too hard.
    It felt forced…This also takes away from the overall experience.

    The writing was also pretty bad….The basic premise of the story is sound,
    and could have been really cool, had it been fleshed out better. They tried
    to cram an entire season worth of story arc, and character development,
    into just over an hour of actual runtime. The result is a forced, chaotic
    mess. The story arc involving syphon could have easily been played out over
    multiple episodes, giving the writers a chance to tell a better story.
    instead, what we get is a generic “mean things were done to us, so now
    we’re throwing a murderous revenge tantrum” story. Very disappointing.
    Feels like they really missed a few opportunities.

    I really wanted to like this…i tried to like it, but i found myself
    either cringing, or making this face O,o throughout the whole show.

    Boushh did a crossover. Sweet.

  161. charles ryanlee on October 12, 2015 at 11:00 pm

    okay, this must be a different continuity. Because in Star Trek IV Spock
    himself creates a technique that restructures dilithium crystals which is
    in common use in picard’s time.

    so all of this is absolutely unnecessary.

  162. Christian Link on October 11, 2015 at 7:10 am

    I read plenty of the comments, both pro & con, and here’s the gist.
    The film is bad, but not bad enough to be good.
    The writing is slow, plodding, and flat.
    The lighting and camera work are often times amateurish.
    The acting is sometimes so bad…I said to myself, “That actress is related
    to a Producer.”

    Those that find the film to lacking…we aren’t haters. This…this just
    wasn’t done as good as it could have been. That’s an opinion…not hate.
    I hate liver & onions. That’s a matter of taste…not hate.

    And that is the problem with amateur films these days…supporters want us
    to look the other way when crap hits the screen. That’s not how it works.
    Nobody raves about a restaurant that gave them E Coli, and some people came
    away from watching this with that same feeling in their gut.

    Every excuse available doesn’t make the film, the story, or the acting any
    less palpable.

    You guys completed a fan film in a beloved genre, congratulations. I hope
    you paid everyone for their time.

  163. Stan Caug on October 7, 2015 at 2:48 pm

    SO… just wondering.. Am I the only one that realized that they have
    (successfully) merged the star trek universe with the star gate
    universe…… portals.. needs two portals…. ahhh anyone else catch that
    or am I just a total geek..? just wondering?????

  164. Thecreationferrie on October 7, 2015 at 6:50 am

    outstanding, gripping and astonishing work. bravo

  165. Michael Tippie on October 2, 2015 at 5:49 pm

    IS THAT ICHEB!??

    Whoa! Grant Imahara I so did not see that coming!

  169. Dan Cunningham on September 18, 2015 at 11:19 pm

    It a shame that few of deaf friends donated for the making and it not
    closed caption at all. Least Axanar will be closed caption film.

  170. Tomas Corvidea on September 17, 2015 at 11:11 pm

    Damn! The Andoian is hot!

    Continuity Error.
    22.26 – “The butchered 5 billion of my race.” Kevin Frys Jaro Ruk referring
    to Vic Mignogna characters Garis species and the Bajoran Holocaust.

    The bajoran holocaust (cardassian occupation) as you can call it ended up
    with killing 10-15 million.

  172. MithranArkanere on September 17, 2015 at 9:04 am

    If they get to do Worf’s series, I think the best next series would be one
    for a mere commercial ship. Not starfleet or any other army or faction. A
    neutral ship dealing mostly with transporting goods, ‘unorthodox
    acquisitions’, and the occasional bounty that seems easy. Sometimes caught
    in the crossfire in larger conflicts, showing the perspective of the common
    folk far from the frontlines and politics.

  173. Barry Gordon on September 15, 2015 at 6:51 am

    I thought this was quite good. and yes the andorian was a hottie.

  174. Trent Timoy on September 14, 2015 at 1:13 pm

    Curious observation: Why are these Star Bases so massive? I mean, why do
    they need to be that large? Must take thousands upon thousands of
    inhabitants to operate.

    Nice acting. Got to see Walter Koenig stretch his theatrical talents.

  175. The8BitChampion on September 14, 2015 at 9:45 am

    The andorian looked hot

  176. John Aldrich on September 14, 2015 at 5:33 am

    This almost feels like an episode of Babylon 5

  177. Luke Devine on September 12, 2015 at 2:14 am

    ‘you are nothing but a weak helpless female’ good to see you guys upholding
    the tradition of misogyny in Star Trek. I wanted to love this. Next time
    get in a real writer. The exposition is excruciating. Do we need to hear
    this ‘because my mother Captain Janeway only fed me chocolate cheerios I
    had to sign up to a loser spaceship’ kind of crap? It doesn’t work. Let’s
    hope Axanar fares better.

  178. Geoffrey Menna on September 10, 2015 at 7:53 am

    Why is that one woman wearing glasses? She can have some glasses replicated
    but she cant get eye surgery?

  179. AlexReynard on September 9, 2015 at 1:08 pm

    I hate having to thumbs-down this, because a lot of effort did go into it.
    The ship design and background paintings were fantastic. But the movie has
    two big problems: acting and writing. There were good ideas in the story,
    and good performances. But Lexxa Singh is a painfully blatant Mary Sue, and
    incompetent at that. Most of her decisions turn out poorly, because she
    clearly doesn’t think them through. All she actually *does* in this is win
    one fistfight. Worse though, her actress and many of the other
    actors/actresses weren’t pulling off their characters. Chekov, Icheb and
    Fixer felt real. Most of the rest of them felt like, “Look how hard I’m
    ACTING now!” Especially Chekov’s granddaughter, the Andorian, the Bajoran
    and the Betazed. And you killed off some of the most interesting characters
    right when I was most interested in them. AND you did the “Don’t kill him
    we need information!”(dead- “Whoopsie!” bullcrap *twice*! Come on!

    There is a lot of potential here, but you guys gotta realize that angst is
    not enough. The characters can’t just posture menacingly and brood a lot
    and recite poetry. SHOW them being tough. Show why we should respect them.
    And not with fights that are super-carefully edited so we hopefully won’t
    see that the actors aren’t really exerting themselves.

    Also, those glasses looked incredibly out-of-place. I’m glad she took them
    off halfway through.

  180. Jeffrey Shaffer on September 8, 2015 at 1:24 pm

    I fell asleep during this movie at a couple spots, but looks like I didn’t
    miss anything. Kinda bummed about this movie, but can’t be surprised with
    the budget and all. I’m putting my lack of enthusiasm into the writing
    however. Plenty of things with potential, but plenty of it felt wasted. I
    hope Paramount does something with this because all the pieces are there,
    it just needs the skill to polish out everything.

  181. Russell Barton on September 8, 2015 at 11:38 am

    these actors aren’t very good

  182. zoppie on September 8, 2015 at 8:05 am

    I can see why something like this would divide the fandom. Gene probably
    would not have approved, as he was steadfast in his belief that humanity
    must be shown to have left this kind of warrior mentality behind.
    Ironically, tho, some of the most enduring episodes were the ones that took
    today’s issues, and presented them in the trappings of tomorrow, for
    reasons of clarity and subversiveness. A lot of his writers have said he
    was the biggest censor of their ideas.
    Our governments being corrupt is a big issue, today. How is Star Trek
    supposed to handle this concept, if the Federation or Starfleet is all
    squeaky clean? Well, Gene had an out for this: Show the corrupt villain as
    an insane human, or not human at all. And this tale uses that out. We see
    that blue light fleeing the dead “traitor’s” body. That suggests he was
    under non-human control. And, also notice, most of the cast is non-human,
    as well.
    As a kid, what kept me coming back to ST was the sfx (spaceships,
    transporters, phasers, etc.) and the action. The intellectual stuff
    (morals, messages, and meanings) is what kept me coming back as an adult.
    This is why episodes need both, in order to have something for everyone. It
    has to entertain, as well as educate.
    I cannot put this into the same boat as JJ Trek. It is not trying to
    rewrite Trek history to reshape it into another producer’s image. It covers
    an uncovered era in the prime universe, and it coexists with squeaky clean
    Trek. Alvarez and the crew of the Archer ably represent that. But It also
    exposes the seamy underbelly, against which our anti-heroes can buckle a
    mean swash. Hell, that’s what Firefly did! And that show had some darned
    good messages, too!
    So I say give this one a chance. I think it fits nicely into canon. If you
    disagree, feel free to call it apocryphal, but watch it for fun’s sake,
    anyhow, just like a comic book.

  183. John McGinley on September 8, 2015 at 6:23 am

    i know that maybe i’m just nitpicking, but when the icarus stole the
    dilithium they destroyed a klingon ship as well. wouldn’t that ship have
    somewhere in the region of at least 200 crew on board? were they acquitted
    of mass murder as well?

  184. Mtydyst Cdfsgyb on September 5, 2015 at 4:09 pm

    Am I the only one to see the plot holes that are bigger than a
    matter/anti-matter explosion?

    For example, Captain Alvarez says “Lock photons on that cloaked ship.”
    Since when in the history of Star Trek can you get a weapons lock on a
    cloaked ship?!

    And despite the fact the the ship is cloaked, it’s captain has to go out of
    his way to hide it in nebulous gasses?

    And then when the cloaked ship begins it’s attack on Alvarez’s ship,
    Alvarez sees on the view screen that it’s the Icarus. Well, if the ship
    hasn’t de-cloaked yet, how is that possible? Because, remember in Star Trek
    VI, the Klingons had a ship that could fire while still cloaked. And
    Renegades is at least 100 years into the future from when Star Trek VI took
    place, so there’s no reason why ships that can fire while cloaked aren’t
    commonplace by then.

    And the captain of the Icarus, looks, acts, and talks like Gen. Roth’h’ar
    Sarris, Captain Taggart’s nemesis from the movie Galaxy Quest. And he even
    uses the same battle strategy against Alvarez, that Taggart used against
    Sarris.
    Remember in galaxy quest, Captain Taggart was flying a collision course
    into Gen, Sarris’s ship, but also was pulling an entire explosive minefield
    behind it for firepower. Well, the Icarus flew a near collision course
    toward Alvarez’s ship, pulling Klingon torpedoes behind it for firepower.
    So was that their intent, to pay homage to a movie that had previously paid
    homage to Star Trek?

    Meanwhile, during all of this, Captain Alvarez has a “deer caught in
    headlights” expression on his face. What? No orders to “Hold your course!”
    or “Evasive maneuvers!”?

    Then, to top it all off he asks “Why aren’t we in pursuit?”. Maybe because
    in the history of Star Trek, the ship doesn’t engage in pursuit and/or warp
    speed without direct orders from the captain?

  185. TR47 on September 3, 2015 at 1:49 am

    Good effort, but the writing needs polishing. There’s a serious lack of
    Trek style dialogue, like “Come about to 210 mark 034 and engage at half
    impulse” type lines and little things like saying “uncloaking” instead of
    “decloaking”. The story seems jumpy and is a little hard to follow. The
    Starfleet uniforms look terrible and are not in line with a post-Voyager
    timeline, although the badges look good. I understand the budget
    limitations, but this seems to suffer from similar problems as canon Trek
    writing, except in this case they used old sound effects that don’t fit (ST
    2 movie phasers, TOS era photons, Buck Rogers lasers). I imagine not having
    access to the real sound bank hurts, but it seems hackneyed. It would be a
    simple matter to hire a fan as a consultant to ensure better timeline
    continuity and keeping the feel more consistent. This is a much better
    effort than the last project, but there is zero chance of CBS picking it
    up; they’re done with Prime universe Trek.

  186. BluesHonkey on September 2, 2015 at 5:48 pm

    Why are there still no black Star Fleet officers, or black Renegade
    officers for that matter, in the future? It’s pretty blatant.

  187. Beardsley McBeard on September 2, 2015 at 4:20 pm

    Damn it Corin, you can’t be in Star Gate and Star Trek! Really Pavel is
    143?!

  188. Cody Harrison on September 2, 2015 at 7:33 am

    Wishes it was Subtitled/Captioned….I’m deaf. Pretty sure there are plenty
    of Deaf/Hard of Hearing/Hearing Impaired that would love to see this with
    Captioning.

  189. Chris on September 2, 2015 at 6:08 am

    “Admiral Nimoy Memorial” – OMFG it’s SPOCK not Nimoy!! FFS

  190. Good Fortune on September 2, 2015 at 3:30 am

    Before the negativity: Tim Russ you are a boss for trying to revive Star
    Trek. Everyone who donated, or in any way spent time to work on this, I
    fucking love you. Now for some good old fashioned complaining:

    I’m not worried about graphics or acting.. or scientific accuracy as far as
    that’s possible in science speculation.
    I’m just worried about the fact that this star trek prime universe
    ‘continuation’ features so much space cowboy…. Where the F*CK is the
    prime directive? Where is that underlying moral compass that all Star Trek
    used to have that makes us think about current issues and see them in new
    light?
    WHERE is the positive social function/impact of this fan series?
    It’s not just about creating rich characters futuristic settings and some
    thrilling story arcs. Star Trek was originally actually about bringing
    people together and striving for a better tomorrow; to reach what is being
    portrayed in the series itself. To set the bar higher for how we treat one
    another and our environment.
    I’m about 40 minutes in. The line ‘If I bring you in, I’m guaranteed to get
    a medal’ from ‘Cpt Alpharez’ or whomever he is troubled me greatly. So in
    the 24th century humans will still be petty achievement mongers. Looking
    for social prestige and such…
    It just saddens me. Does this reflect the further decay of our society?

  191. Al Godwin on September 1, 2015 at 1:02 pm

    **SPOILERS**

    No matter how we feel about the film, you have to applaud the effort and
    the product on the fan-donated budget.
    However, let an original story be an original story with original
    characters. As a life-long die-hard fan, I do appreciate the ‘Babylon 5’
    feel, the nods to the past, and the use of Trek and non-Trek veteran
    actors. In my opinion, there were just too many and not fleshed out or
    detailed enough..I appreciate Admiral Chekov in the film, but at 140 years
    old? Instead, the character could have been a recorded message tied into
    the legacy of the great–great-granddaughter character, or better yet made
    him the hologram brought online to handle the crisis! His character’s
    extreme age at this time in Trek history gave it the feel of the Dr. McCoy
    character appearing in the pilot for TNG… I did appreciate that Walter
    Koenig did a fantastic job.
    Tuvok, Doc Zimmerman, Icheb, ok….Icheb’s name wasn’t mentioned until
    nearly the end of the movie…. more backstory detail needed there. You
    can’t write in Icheb’s character without adding lines mentioning Seven of
    Nine…. Also the main character named ‘Singh’ a relative of Khan..more
    detail please. One of the things Star Trek and B5’s writers were VERY good
    at was giving you most of the back story so the arc made sense without
    revealing the crucial details until the just right moment.
    But.. Bravo!! oh… speaking of that network.. please give these epic
    characters Starfleet uniforms and costumes that fit.. baggy clothes
    distract and detract from the quality and age the actors. Or, add Garak to
    the crew…
    Overall, a great job and many thanks from this fan!

  192. Joseph Doyen on September 1, 2015 at 11:06 am

    That lady with the black hair and glasses is an absolutely horrible actor!
    It’s painful just watching her…She looks like a retired school
    teacher…lol

  193. xXKirkSoloXx on September 1, 2015 at 8:14 am

    What year is this set?

    (Earthdate pls :P)

  194. Ryan Y. on September 1, 2015 at 2:27 am

    Funny how there is someone wearing glasses in this time

  195. Brent Nowak on August 30, 2015 at 10:11 pm

    The cheapest thing they could have done the best, casting and acting, they
    dropped the ball.

  196. magik on August 30, 2015 at 9:10 pm

    OMG NO!! Dr Lucien was Rachel from Blade Runner?? WHAT HAPPENED?

  197. Robot Quentin on August 30, 2015 at 8:41 pm

    A helluva lot of fun I must say! Some really good acting, BUT get rid of
    the granddaughter! Ugggggh it came to a screeching halt in most of the
    early scenes in Chekov’s office… That being said, there is a ton of
    potential here. I am looking forward to seeing more, but hoping to not wait
    3 years again for the next one. Thanks to Tim Russ’s tenacity in getting
    this project done! I wish Sean Young was in more things. I miss her. Maybe
    Furlong has his life together now too. Most of the story flowed good, but
    with MOST of these fan productions, there’s a delicate balance between
    over-explanation and under-explanation.
