Star Trek Renegades

Episode 40: TOS State of Mind!

WE HAVE ‘TOS’ ON THE BRAIN! (BRAIN AND BRAIN – WHAT IS BRAIN??)

Ep 40 - TOS State of Mind

It’s really no surprise that we are still riding high from our visit to the Star Trek Continues set recently.  As a result of being immersed in the TOS Universe for several days, we felt it was only fitting to dedicate Episode 40 of the Trek Geeks Podcast to The Original Series.

We will mix it up a bit by talking about things that we love as well as things that we hate about Kirk’s crew.  First we will discuss the characters from the Original Series that we truly despised for one reason or another.  Which characters, whether special guests or series regulars that just got under our skin, and why?  Then, as if were hit by the spores of Omicron Ceti III we delve into our most loved episodes of TOS!  You may be surprised.  As we like to say, the “Champion Rule” dictates that someone’s most loved episode is someone else’s most hated!

Also, our friends at Star Trek Continues had a lot of news this past week.  We will discuss the ribbon cutting ceremony they had for the new Engine Room, the announced title of Episode 6, the surprise visit of the one and only Rod Roddenberry to the set (yes we did get to meet him) and what it felt like for us when STC posted a pic of us with the Captain himself on their official Facebook page!

In addition we will talk about the latest levels of the Star Trek Renegades fundraiser and whether or not we think they will meet there goal.  With just days to go at the time of recording, they are close, but are they close enough?

Plus, a short, fan made teaser for Star Trek Deep Space 9 on Blue Ray recently started getting some traction on the web.  We will discuss why one of us is very excited about the possibility, while the other thinks is completely meaningless!

All this, plus the triumphant return of a special all TOS version of Stump The Geek in this week’s all-new episode of Trek Geeks – A Star Trek Podcast.

RENEGADES UPDATE

Since recording this episode, Star Trek Renegades surpassed their crowdfunding goal of $350,000.00 with approximately 32 hours to go in the campaign. How quickly things can change in less than a day!

Star Trek: Renegades Launches Indiegogo Campaign

on-djakaar-3Renegades Studios, the team that brought us “Star Trek: Of Gods And Men” in 2007 and 2008, have launched a fund raising effort to produce a pilot for a possible new online or cable series.

Star Trek: Renegades” is a production written by Ethan H. Calk, Jack Treviño, and Sky Conway and directed by “Star Trek: Voyager’s” Tuvok, Tim Russ. They had recently completed a Kickstarter campaign which provided an initial minimum amount of funding.  From their website:

Since that time, we have completed the script, and it is much more ambitious than we originally envisioned.  We quickly realized the minimum budget amount we raised will not be enough to complete our production – at least not to the standards we want.  We’ve already made a few cuts in the script with regard to characters, locations and visual effects. But bottom line, we want to present CBS with the absolute best, highest quality, professional product we can create, and we need more funding to do that.

The campaign also provides a brief synopsis of the pilot’s story:

Ten years after Voyager’s return from the Delta Quadrant, the Federation is in crisis. Someone has caused space and time to fold around several planets, all of which are the Federation’s main suppliers of dilithium, essentially cutting off the supply for several millennia.  Starfleet’s methods to stop those responsible have been ineffective. This necessitates more drastic measures, some of which are outside the Federation’s jurisdiction. It now falls to Admiral Pavel Chekov, head of Starfleet Intelligence, and Commander Tuvok, Voyager’s former security officer and new head of the clandestine Section 31, to put together a new covert, renegade crew – primarily comprised of outcasts, rogues and even criminals.  But can they refrain from killing each other to accomplish their task? That may be the bigger question…

The Indiegogo campaign is 45 days long and principal photography begins on October 2, regardless of how much they’ve raised. They’ve released a promotional video on the Indiegogo page which features both Tim Russ as well as Original Series legend Walter Koenig.

(If you are unable to see the embedded video above, please click here to view it on YouTube.)

Like most internet fund raising campaigns, there are various levels of perks available based on your level of contribution. Renegades has donation levels as low as $10.00.

The Star Trek: Renegades Indiegogo campaign can be found here: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/star-trek-renegades

This looks like an exciting project and, if the promo video is any indication, it’s got lots of potential!  We look forward to hearing updates on the production!
