Re: Star Trek: Renegades

Oh, I wasn't questioning him still being alive. 140 certainly seems to be more than possible in Trek lore. Was just remarking on how young he looks for his age.

I don't think Tuvok ever said whether or not Sulu was still alive during Flashback?

Scotty was obviously still alive but for a completely different reason.

I think Chekov looks perfect. His real age and the shaved head serve him well for the role. I think that having old age makeup like what McCoy had in TNG would be too distracting.
His head is not shaved, it's natural. Walter Koenig has been wearing a toupee for years. It's only recently that he has started appearing at cons and other public events withoutmit. Now he usually wears a hat.

It's cool that he was willing to not wear it for this. It totally adds to Chekov looking older. It dramatic departure from how he looked in the movies. So it distracts from lack of makeup.

Yes, I know that the actor is naturally bald, but the character always had hair

Well the stuff falls off of fictional characters as they age, now and again.

Re: Star Trek: Renegades

Even though Koenig obviously does not look like he's 180 years old, he looks significantly older in the Renegades trailer than he did in Of Gods and Men without his wig. But It works for the project. VI, Generations and OGAM worked because comparing the real world and the Trek world the stories were practically In real time with the actor ageing. You could take advantage of Koenig's different appearance so the poor man doesn't have to spend hours in a makeup chair getting a mask put on! To Serve All My Days was different, it involved de-ageing too.

McCoy was a one scene cameo so Kelley wore a prosthetic face and hair, screen tests show it was originally just greyed up hair and makeup, but in the end the producers decided to significantly age McCoy.

Nimoy's a bit different being a Vulcan (well Spock, not Nimoy!) at first glance he looks the same in VI and Unification, but you notice his hair is greyed up a bit. XI is 19 years later so the character does look a lot older, though it's still the same Spock.

Re: Star Trek: Renegades

Another fundraiser? I'd love to hear what CBS are thinking.

Not crazy about the new designs shown in the video and on their Indygogo page - an Into Darkness-style Klingon with helmet, a slightly modified USS Defiant bridge, a Nova-class with a round saucer and a slightly pointier D7 battlecruiser. Kind of uninspired.

The designs aren't much of a departure, and I think that might be a mistake with the "hero" ship given that they are supposed to be disavowed - same with using Starfleet department colors for the uniforms.

One unusual thing I may have noticed, though - on that "pointier D7", are those the warp nacelles off of a Sovvy? If so, I could see *that* being the "hero" ship.

Re: Star Trek: Renegades

One thing to consider with Checkov, McCoy, Spock, and Kirk is the possibility that the Deadly Years virus could actually have had some advantageous affect on their natural ageing process. If we say the natural age of Terrans in the time of TOS and TNG is in the high 130's as seen with Bones in Farpoint. Perhaps the virus has somehow extended and slowed Checkov's age. Something to consider.

I like it! The only nitpick I'd have would be the black strap on the shoulder, as they appear pointless, from a functionality perspective. Though, I suppose the callback to the later TOS movie uniform makes up for it

Interesting design, but what about the fit? They do not seem to fit at all, especially the male cast. Not impressed....

Here are the crew on what looks like the bridge of a Galaxy-class starship.

I don't think it's a Galaxy class ship. The Conn and Ops stations, the Captain's chair are from the Enterprise-D Bridge restoration project and loaned out to Renegades.

I have to agree, the fit looks quite bad.
