That Star Trek: Renegades, starring Tim Russ, Walter Koenig, Robert Picardo, Ethan Phillips, Garratt Wang, JG Hertzler, Gary Graham and others didn't quite manage to reach their ultimate Kickstarter goal of $250,000 (they managed their bare-minimum of $200k) says it all about current interest in resurrecting Berman-era Trek.
Not to knock the effort, but Star Trek renegades looks awful.
The pitch was nothing like the Veronica Mars movie, which is the series creators and stars all getting back together for something "official"
Renegades is basically a fan-flik with a few of the actors in ill-fitting uniforms and budget sets which looks nothing like the show.
I did not donate to renegades because I have no interest in fan productions, credit Tim Russ and co on what they are doing but to me it's not worth spending money on
If there was some "official" fundraiser for a Trek Prime tv movie that was going to be cannon and have passable
production values I would donate without question as would many others in my opinion.
