6: An Assembly of Rogue-like Characters

Tim Russ talks Star Trek: Renegades.

One of the interesting things about the post-TNG stories set in the Alpha Quadrant was that a lot of pressure was being put on the Federation as a result of threats from the Borg and the Dominion. Section 31 was very active, and even leaders who you would expect to uphold Gene Roddenberry's utopian ideals were taking measures that undermined the very foundation of the Federation.

A progression of this storyline can be found in Star Trek: Renegades, an independent production directed by Tim Russ that stars many familiar faces from the Star Trek franchise, including Walter Koenig, Gary Graham, Robert Picardo, Richard Herd, Manu Intiraymi, and of course Tim Russ as Tuvok. Ten years after Voyager's return from the Delta Quadrant, the Federation is again in crisis and its very survival is in question.

In this episode of Continuing Mission we're joined by Tim Russ to learn more about the genesis of the project, his views on a darker take on Star Trek, what it was like directing Renegades compared to Voyager, and what we can expect from Renegades in the future. We also give you some background to the story and an update on the post-production work that is now underway.

5: From a Ship Named Equinox...

Star Trek Equinox.

Throughout Star Trek there are those episodes that you feel ended with closure and those that left you asking "and then what happened"? Generally the two don't cross. But a new film in pre-production called Star Trek: Equinox: The Night of Time combines one of most memorable moments from The Original Series with a very specific loose thread from Star Trek: Voyager. The cast includes some names very familiar to Star Trek fans including Gary Lockwood, who will be reprising his role as Gary Mitchell, best friend of James T. Kirk, from the classic TOS episode, “Where No Man Has Gone Before,” and John Savage, who returns as Captain Rudy Ransom from the Voyager two-parter "Equinox." In the episode of Continuing Mission we're joined by two members of the Equinox team, writer Camren Burton and actor Eric Moran, to find out more about the project.

4: A Souped-up Icheb

Manu Intiraymi on Icheb and Renegades.

Gene Roddenberry's vision of the future was one of utopian ideals, but over time the stories stretched the boundaries of that idealism and introduced more conflict into a world where everyone seemed to get along. Threats like the Dominion and the Borg challenged our heroes, and often in surprising ways. Voyager grappled with the idea the that not all Borg are bad—or at least deserve a second chance—while DS9 exposed the shadowy world of Section 31.

We'll soon be lurking further into those shadows in Star Trek: Renegades, the independent film directed by Tim Russ that stars many familiar faces from Treks past. Renegades also brings a Voyager twist along with it.

In this episode of Continuing Mission we're joined by Manu Intiraymi, who fans know as the young Brunali and former Borg drone Icheb on Star Trek: Voyager. Manu talks to us about reprising the role of Icheb in Renegades, as well as how he got the role on Voyager, what it was like working on the set, how he got into acting, and what he has in store for fans in the near future.

3: The Mirror Universe Continues

Star Trek Continues Episode 3 with James Kerwin and Chris White.

A production of Farragut Films, Star Trek Continues picks up the story of The Original Series right where it left off in 1969. Featuring a talented cast that includes Vic Mignogna as Captain Kirk and Chris Doohan in the role made iconic by his father, Star Trek Continues has brought us two episodes that are almost indistinguishable from those shot in the 1960s. Fans are eagerly awaiting the third installment, which just finished filming, and speculation about what the story might hold has struck like lightning.

In this episode of Continuing Mission we're joined by director and co-writer James Kerwin and first assistant director Chris White for a sneak peak at what STC's third outing has in store for us.
