Looks interesting.

I think these fan productions are the only way we are going to get Trek on "television" these days and when they are well produced they are very enjoyable. I wish them luck.

Well Bones from TOS popped up on TNG and he was older than Chekov - so it's quite possible.  Lifespans for humans are quite a bit longer.  Based on the timing, Chekov would only be in his low 100's or so.

One more day to help them reach their new Kickstarter goal for this project.  They already reached their first goal of $200K.  More info below:

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/145553614/star-trek-renegades

We have one more day to raise these stretch funds. Our Kickstarter drive ends at 4:21 am PST early Monday morning. These extra funds mean we can make our production even better - more and better sets, better props, costumes, makeup design, VFX - the list is endless.

If you have already supported our project, we are ever grateful. If not, we please check out our Kickstarter page. If you are unable, you can always spread the word - tell your friends, tweet us, post us on facebook - whatever you can do to get the word out there!

Tim Russ (Tuvok in Voyager) has signed on to direct Renegades.

The role of Captain Lexxa Singh will be played by Adrienne Wilkinson (Xena: Warrior Princess, Star Wars: The Clone Wars).

The Renegades' antagonist in the film, Borrada, will be played by Trek veteran J.G. Hertzler (Martok, DS9; Koval, Of Gods and Men)

Also currently in the cast are Walter Koenig (Chekov, Original Series), Tim Russ, Gary Graham (Alien Nation; Soval, Enterprise), Garrett Wang (Harry Kim, Voyager), Robert Picardo (the holodoctor, Voyager), Ethan Phillips (Neelix, Voyager), Manu Intiraymi (Icheb, Voyager), Richard Herd (Admiral Paris, Voyager), Edward Furlong (Terminator 2: Judgement Day), Larissa Gomes (Saw VI, Saw 3D), actress/stunt performer Tarah Paige (Make It or Break It, Rise of the Planet of the Apes), Courtney Peldon (Entourage, Home Improvement), Corin Nemec (Stargate Sg-1), Monica Keena (Dawson's Creek) and Vic Mignogna (Star Trek Continues, Dragonball Z).

It seems to me that these talented people could be doing something more productive with their time and money. I don't see how a Star Trek project can help any of them at this point of their careers. Of God's and Men wasn't all that good and although this looks to be visually better I have my reservations.

Well, here's an idea...  Maybe they just enjoy it, want to have some fun and make a cool little film for their fans.

I'm going to have to second Rico on that one. What's more productive with your time or money than doing something that you enjoy doing? I mean they aren't going to strap you in a chair like A Clockwork Orange and force you to watch it. Maybe I'm a bit less cynical, but perhaps this isn't about their careers in any way?

I'm not saying that every fan project out there needs to be loved and adored, but how about we give these people doing them the benefit of the doubt that it's with good intentions?

Well said Chris.  I agree - not everything in life needs to be about your career or the profit involved.

I don't know when you became the arbiter of what Tim Russ, Walter Koenig et al are doing with their personal time. Plus, it's always great when you do a labor love and people shit on it sight unseen. I guess if you've ever worked on anything for zero money gain that you put out for people to enjoy you might have a little more insight.

To say that there is no money made is actually not the truth. They even state on their site that according to the "actors guild" they have to pay actors salary. They somehow are able to say it's not for profit but it's kind of a loophole in my opinion. People, especially actors, do not work for free. There are lots of people making some money off this project. They have raised well over 100,000 dollars in one campaign and I don't know how much in the other because I just don't care enough to look.

Typically the actors would be paid some type of a scale wage for something like this and most of the funds raised go into the sets, props, production costs, post production CGI, web distribution, etc.  CBS/Paramount pays very close attention to "fan" productions and will not allow "lots of people" to profit from this.  However Kevin, I feel strongly you are way off base in your comments so far.  I have seen most of these actors at conventions and met many in person (including Walter Koenig, who is a very intelligent and sweet man).  Most of them genuinely care about "Star Trek" and the fans and very much enjoy working on projects like this based on what I have heard them say over the years.  If you don't care for it, that's your choice - don't watch it.  But please do not presume to say what these people should or should not be doing with their time or careers.

I can't understand why all of a sudden the need to feel to slap me down. I clearly stated "It seems to me" and "I don't see how" etc. It's just my opinion, and me voicing my thoughts, and was not meant to offend, but clearly some people are overly sensitive about the topic. I didn't know that we all have to agree on the site to get along. Sheesh people! Chill out! Forgive me for having an opinion that differs from yours!  :o
