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.
