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.
