For all we know, those glimpses we saw of plain-looking sets may just be the beginning. I would be willing to bet that after lighting and CGI effects are applied they may look quite different. Why don't we step back a second and let's see what develops, hm?
Are they going to CG entirely new uniforms?

I do appreciate that it's difficult on a tight budget, but frankly some of the other fan efforts have done a lot better with their own designs..
TIGHT BUDGET?! Do you have ANY idea what any of the fanfilms could do with the $250,000 that Renegades collected? Every other fanfilm is doing it for far less than $10,000 an episode and every other fanfilms costumes are 500% better than Renegades. Okay, maybe the purchased turtlenecks of PP rival Renegades.... but they don't have 250K either.

Well, I'm not an expert on fan film budgets. But, if anything, you're reinforcing what I'm saying.

Re: Star Trek: Renegades

Okay from what I saw on that video, this show is going to be waaaaaaay better than OGaM. Waaaaay better. Can't wait to see it.

Just need to save up some money so I can contribute and get a DVD when it's finished.

Oh, and a question. I asked this over on the facebook page, but nobody involved with the production answered. What year is this film set in? Before or after Romulus is destroyed (which is in the year 2387, I believe)?

I believe we were hovering in the 2386 timeline or so.

Re: Star Trek: Renegades

Yes, I can tell you that Renegades will be much better than OGAM. It looks fantastic. Yes, the uniforms are the weakest part of an otherwise fantastic production.

I think Renegades will set the bar.

HA HA Well, yes I got to see first hand (BTW, missed you the last week Tom).

Sadly, fan films are still all trying to top World Enough and Time. It remains the migh mark of fan films. OGAM didn't, STC certainly didn't. But Renegades has that potential. And in fact, with its budget and cast and crew, it really isn't a fan film. It really is a professionally done independent Star Trek.

Yeah it was tough to miss some of those days of the shoot, we had a crew of over 120 and a cast topping out at about 50 so it was certainly a good size production at a fully functional stage. The days were long and the nights short but worth every moment. The whole crew gelled together so well, several of us from the STOGAM days and so many new faces, many industry professionals. The way it was filmed and some of the great actor performances were amazing.

There were one or 2 things that probably could have been a little better (as mentioned in some comments) but overall it was wonderful time, yielding some great material. Now its on to 7-8 months of post-production and editing. We will be working on a new trailer as soon as possible.

We will also be selling many of the props used in the production, funds will go towards our 3 VFX teams to make the quality of the CGI as good as possible. Of course quality from Tobais Richter, Mike Struck and Chris Dawson speak for themselves.

It was great having you there Alec and so many others from Star Trek community who either helped or stopped by.

Does selling off your props means that there won't be any new episodes after this one?

Re: Star Trek: Renegades

Renegades is a one shot. I know Sky Conway hopes CBS might pick it up as a web series, but that is highly unlikely. The politics in actually getting a Star Trek series to production are massive.

But since Sky was able to raise almost $ 300,000 for this one, no reason he couldn't do another. I think fans will be very happy with the result of Renegades.

Re: Star Trek: Renegades

Have you guys thought about getting somebody to novelize Renegades? You could release it as an ebook or something.
