The Dirty Dozen goes interstellar in this exciting new ongoing Sci Fi series about a group of rogues, rebels, and outcasts who try to stop forces threatening the Confederation from outside, and within.
Various retired leaders discuss their experiences of the Four Years War, a war between the Federation and the Klingons, and the build up to a battle at Axanar that caused a major turning point in the war.
These are the new voyages of the starship Enterprise. Picking up from where the original 5-year mission left-off, a new cast continues the adventures of this legendary crew: to boldly go where no human has ever gone before & to search for new life forms.
The Enterprise is diverted to the Romulan homeworld Romulus, supposedly because they want to negotiate a peace treaty. Captain Picard and his crew discover a serious threat to the Federation once Praetor Shinzon plans to attack Earth.
A century before Captain Kirk's five-year mission, Jonathan Archer captains the United Earth ship Enterprise during the early years of Starfleet, leading up to the Earth-Romulan War and the formation of the Federation.
When a seemingly unstoppable new enemy threatens the very existence of the Earth, Admiral Pavel Chekov (Walter Koenig) is forced to work outside the boundaries of Starfleet's rules to combat this deadly new foe. When planet after planet winks out of existence, yet Starfleet refuses to act, Chekov turns to Commander Tuvok (Tim Russ, who also directs), the new head of Starfleet's covert operations division, Section 31. Together, they assemble a new elite strike-force, consisting of rogues, outcasts and criminals, led by the fearless yet haunted Lexxa Singh (Adrienne Wilkinson). The Renegades' mission is simple: take on an army and stop their leader, Borrada (Bruce Young), from destroying the Earth. Outnumbered and out-gunned, the ragtag crew is in an adrenaline-pumping race against time and space. But they soon find their foes are the least of their concerns: the real trouble may be coming from within!Written by

It's a commendable effort, but sadly severely wanting in quality
For a low budget movie, it does have merit on costume and several set pieces. Unfortunately, it barely presents the universe of Star Trek in adequate manner. A lot of the scenes are obviously done with little effects, which make them painfully dreary as you can see the disparity in the background. It also tries to introduce a lot of characters who are sadly monotonous and hardly engaging.
Story follows a newly assembled crew to fight the impending doom. It's straightforward in nature, yet the movie overly complicates them with multitudes of subplots. At some points there are about three branching angles to showcase a bunch of tedious characters. It gets muddled very fast and it doesn't necessary explain the lore to audience well.
The worst part is none of the characters are capable of captivating audience, in fact they are honestly forgettable. It has the usual fleet commander, strange alien who cooperates for their own gain and typical femme fatale. All of them are interchangeable to other sci-fi extras. The acting is subpar, so is the script, these are not the material characters able to commandeer a series or movie.
As one might expect the production is not good as well. The only standout is the costumes, make-up, and probably a couple of crafty details here and there. However, what little it has is severely marred with irregular backgrounds and inferior effects. The camera pans too close or even jitters hectically to hide the abysmal surroundings, and it doesn't even hide them well.
The movie opens with intensity, yet the stuttered development and uninteresting characters make the experience dull. When the most memorable bits are Grant Imahara's cameo and awkward suits that reveal too much cleavage, you know Star Trek: Renegades operates on shoestring budget, wooden acting and unappealing script.
