Star Trek: Renegades raises money for one new episode

Spread the love

Star Trek: Renegades has raised enough money through Kickstarter to make another episode. The first episode was already successfully funded through Kickstarter and Indiegogo campaigns and was released on August 24, 2015.

The goal of this new campaign was to raise $350,000. Ultimately, $378,181 was raised, not reaching the $600,000 stretch goal to possibly make a third installment.

The second episode will be called The Requiem. The pilot episode, which came out in August, was shot at film length. With the achievement of the campaign, pre-production for episode 1.2 will immediately start, after which the real production will start in 2016. For the makers, pre-production means, among other things, that the script is written, the sets designed and built and the various props are made, such as the phasers, tricoders and whatnot. One of the goals if more money was raised was to build a new Icarus Bridge, but that goal, $1,050,000, was not met. Extra attention for CGI in post-production was also not achieved. 800,000 had to be raised for this.

The cast includes Corin Nemec as Capt. Alvarez, Courtney Peldon as Shree, Gary Graham as Ragnar, Tim Russ as Tuvok, Adrienne Wilkinson as Lexxa, Walter Koenig as Adm. Chekov and many others, all of which can be found on the Kickstart page. The latest addition to the cast is Nichelle Nichols as Adm. uhura.
