Last month, production started on a new, independently funded Star Trek web series called Star Trek: Renegades. Star Trek Voyager’s Tim Russ and Star Trek original series actor Walter Koenig will be bringing the new web series to the Internet. This is a follow-up to their 2008 web series, Star Trek: Of Gods And Men. The pair is returning to their roles as Tuvok and Admiral Chekov, respectively, and will also serve as the series’ director and executive producer.

The trailer for Star Trek: Renegades has hit the web, and it gives a glimpse into the darker parts of the Star Trek universe. The series is described as “bold, edgy and a little dark.” Check out the trailer:

With the darker tone of Star Trek: Renegades, the series will explore the depths of the human psyche as it pushes its heroes to their mental and physical limits. It will force them to make decisions and take actions that don’t line up with being Starfleet officers. It’s the last hope to save the Federation.

This sounds very exciting, and from the looks of it, Star Trek: Renegades will be action oriented, with elements of suspense and espionage. The fitting tagline is, “Boldly going where no Trek has gone before.”

Along with Russ and Koening, the cast will include returning faces from Star Trek: Of Gods And Men, including Garrett Wang, Manu Intiraymi, and Richard Herd of Star Trek Voyager, and Gary Graham (Alien Nation, Star Trek Enterprise).

There’s no word when Star Trek: Renegades will be released to the Internet; after all, they just started production last month. In the mean time, check out these short videos of Tim Russ and Walter Koening introducing the project’s Kickstarter page:
