Okay no offense to the original poster, but this is more than a little misinformation.

This is in no way intended to start a new TV Star Trek series, if you thoroughly read the information on their website it says: "We, the team who brought you Star Trek: Of Gods and Men, are proud to announce Star Trek: Renegades, a professionally produced television pilot to be presented for a possible online series."

Now for a bit more information:

James Cawley is RetroFilms and for anyone that's a fan of web series they produce the "Star Trek: New voyages/Star Trek Phase 2". They're a nice little fan-dom group with some outrageously beautiful recreated sets from the original series and I believe these were the sets used primarily in the "Star Trek: Of gods and men" movie.

To give credit where credit is Due, Cawley has had a number of small parts throughout the official Treks as well.

Now to be totally fair, this is a Fandom studio with semi-professional and professionals mixed together.

In conclusion:

The ST:phase II/ST: New Voyages are probably some of the best done unofficial ST endeavours you'll see, and we even willing to revive something Gene Roddenberry had originally wanted to do (but was rejected by the studio execs), they even introduced gay characters and very tastefully done as well. The episode with the gay characters/storyline was "Of Blood and Fire Part 1 & 2."

I just want to make it clear that in no way was I trying to be offensive to the original poster or to anyone involved with this project which personally I think if anyone could pull it off it'd be this bunch, I just wanted to make sure everyone had all the facts.
