Re: Star Trek: Renegades - an almost Voyager movie?

Oh boy, this looks SO ridiculous! What are they thinking? Can this be any more fan-wanky? This looks almost like something one would do to parody fan productions! And yet here they are, presenting it as their actual movie. Just ... why?!

EDIT: Those uniforms! OMG!

Looking at those uniforms makes me realize how silly it is to complain about skin tight uniforms in real Trek.

With their budget of $300,000+ you'd think they could make them look better. I wish they'd stuck with the First Contact/DS9 uniforms seem in the first teaser.

$300,000 vaporize pretty quickly.


Those Renegades, Phase II and Continues guys should just all join their efforts for a more quality product.

Well then they should maybe do something contemporary with gripping story and acting. There you can do a LOT for $300,000. But the problem with science fiction is: do it big, or don't.

If it looks cheap, nobody cares about the acting chops.

Eh, when you're building costumes, building sets, props, models and so forth 300k goes quick, I would imagine. I still want pockets in the future too.

True, but when you compare that to the work that other fan productions have done without raising that kind of coin...well, it doesn't look like $300,000 bought them much in terms of production design or costuming.

If you have to get actors together that do not live in the same neighborhood so they can all stop by your garage to film stuff, you have to pay for plane tickets, hotel rooms, etc... If you don't have your grandma bake you cookies, you have to pay for catering, etc...

Well they are typical fanfilm uniforms. Cheap cloth and not well-tailored. So they are either way too large or way too small. Usually too large.
