Mike Schmidt Talks Renegades.

While visiting Alberta, Canada, for the 2018 Vul-con—an annual Star Trek convention hosted by the city of Vulcan—Trek.fm roving reporter Brandon-Shea Mutala of Melodic Treks met up with a specially trained hitman by the name of Mike. But don't be alarmed; Brandon is fine. As for Mike, he landed a role in the series Renegades (formerly Star Trek: Renegades) playing a hitman in a crucial scene in the second episode of this adventure featuring many familiar faces from Star Trek.

In this episode of Continuing Mission, guest host Brandon-Shea Mutala chats with Schmidt about his role in Renegades and how the opportunity came about. His adventures offer great encouragement to others wishing to take part in Star Trek fan films.

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.

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.
