    [TV] New Star Trek series?

    http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/star-trek-renegades

    Ten years after Voyager’s return from the Delta Quadrant, the Federation is in crisis. Someone has caused space and time to fold around several planets, all of which are the Federation’s main suppliers of dilithium, essentially cutting off the supply for several millennia. Starfleet’s methods to stop those responsible have been ineffective. This necessitates more drastic measures, some of which are outside the Federation’s jurisdiction. It now falls to Admiral Pavel Chekov, head of Starfleet Intelligence, and Commander Tuvok, Voyager’s former security officer and new head of the clandestine Section 31, to put together a new covert, renegade crew – primarily comprised of outcasts, rogues and even criminals. But can they refrain from killing each other to accomplish their task? That may be the bigger question…
    Tim Russ (Tuvok) is planned to direct and the cast includes Walter Koenig (Chevok from TOS), Robert Picardo (The Doctor/Dr. Zimmerman from VOY), Richard Herd (Admiral Paris, VOY), Gary Graham (Ambassador Soval from ENT), and Garrett Wang (Harry Kim, VOY).

    You kill or you die. Or you die and you kill.
    Tell them only that the Lich King is dead and that World of Warcraft died with him.

    Sounds interesting, I'd probably watch it. I loved Voyager (favorite Star Trek series so far) so I think this will do well.

    I wish them the best with this and hope it turns out really well... but the fact it's mostly Voyager people I find to be a bit disconcerting.

    Since that show was turrible.

    So I was looking through the casting and then I saw Grant Imahara. I know he liked Star Trek but I didn't expect him to get cast for something like this; Myth busted I guess.

    They need a series about the ground forces, make it a little grittier than the others focusing more on the battles and "human" aspects of the characters, Chief O' Brian was always talking about his time fighting the Cardies it would be good to see it in film form.

    Well, that is what Section 31 has always been portrayed as although it was initially a human based operation rather than a federation based. Albeit the were also more of a group that operated covertly rather than engaging in a full frontal war.

    I'd love to see a new Star Trek show but I don't think the quality of this one is going to be on par with DS9/VOY/ENT.
    Their budget is just too low.
    DS9 pilot = 12 million$
    Renegades = so far they've made less than 300k

    It's a pilot, if this gets picked up it can be reshot.
    I don't think this matters nearly as much as you think it does.

    Yeah, they say it in the article

    But bottom line, we want to present CBS with the absolute best, highest quality, professional product we can create, and we need more funding to do that.
    Big budget pitch.

    DS9 was 20 years ago. My smartphone probably has more processing power than the computers they used for the CGI back then.

    McCoy was still alive at 137.

    If you're willing to go with what Shattner's been writing, McCoy is still alive at 152 in 2379.

    As long as it isn't as bad as most of Voyager and S1-3 Enterprise, then sure.
    Just make sure Brannon Braga writes no episodes if it gets picked up

    wasn't a fan of Voyager but glad to see another Star Trek series begin.

    As long as they stay true the the series, and not the recent movies. Because if it's the latter, I'm going to have to cry in despair.

    I would be all for a new Star Trek series. I have a feeling all we're going to see for the next 20 years is re-boots and re-imaginings

    There is some potential here. I actually kind of like it that the characters are already known because then we don't have to waste time going into personal history stories since we already know them.

    Another thing is Section 31 is a ruthless organization where killing, assassinations, even genocide are not out of the question. Hopefully we get to see something evil scheming the kinds of things that people don't talk about at parties.
