Renegades Series LogoRenegades are currently filming “The Requiem”, but due to the new fan film rules published by CBS and Paramount on Tuesday 23rd May, they’ve had to remove all the Star Trek references.

Here’s the press release from Reneades regarding the new film guidelines:

Dear supporters,

On June 23rd CBS and Paramount issued fan film guidelines – http://www.startrek.com/fan-films

We, at Renegades, have nothing but the utmost respect for Star Trek and its IP holders, CBS and Paramount. Everything we have done has been because of Gene Roddenberry’s vision and creativity. Star Trek is their property and we will absolutely abide by their rules and guidelines.

That being said, we do have an obligation to our donors and fans, and we have every intention of fulfilling it to the best of our ability. So, we will continue to make “The Requiem” as promised, but without any Star Trek elements.

As you know, we’ve already begun filming “The Requiem” so we cannot halt, suspend, or postpone production. Renegades, from the get go, was designed to be transformative… not derivative. Thus, with very minor changes to our script, we have eliminated all of the Star Trek references. The good news is that Renegades is now a completely original and ongoing series.

We would like to take this time to thank CBS and Paramount for letting us play in their proverbial sandbox for as long as they did. And we’d also like to thank our loyal, creative, and passionate fans for their unending support. We truly appreciate it.

-The Renegades Team

Story:

The Dirty Dozen goes interstellar in this exciting new ongoing Sci Fi series about a group of rogues, rebels, and outcasts who find themselves faced with the greatest threat the Confederation has ever encountered. With a man known only as the Admiral (Walter Koenig) heading up Confederation Intelligence and Kovok (Tim Russ) a part of the Confederation’s clandestine Black Ops organization, they recruit Captain Lexxa Singh (Adrienne Wilkinson) and her rogue crew to do those missions that no one else can or will do. When the Confederation is threatened and standard protocol won’t work, it is up to this rag-tag group of Renegades to save them all.

Renegades continues with the Requiem, as everything The Admiral has feared for the Confederation, begins to come to pass. As a secret cabal enacts plans for galactic dominance on a scale never before seen, The Admiral and his crack team of Renegades do everything in their power to stop them. But their enemy is more powerful than they can imagine and The Admiral is left with a decision he never wanted to make. But will the sacrifice be too great?
