We are excited to release our Renegades music video by Cela Scott, who plays Lexxa’s mother in the film. The song based on the poem “Invictus” by William Ernest Henley, which plays a prominent part in Renegades.
In the video, you will get a first look at some of the amazing VFX created by our very talented team, as well as some never-before-seen footage from both the film and our flashback shoot!
Production update (3/15/2015)
Every VFX shot is now in the film! Out of the total 637 VFX shots, we only have 20 remaining that need to be polished and finalized. Also, we are starting the process of updating the Archer Bridge with monitors and other visuals (which is also a part of post production).
We are completing the color correction for the CBS temp film and it will be ready for presentation at the end of the month.
Thank you for your amazing support and your continued patience
My dear fellow white science-fiction fans, let me use an analogy to try to explain one reason why people are so angry about what’s happening in Ferguson.
If you only watch one episode of Star Trek (original series), the fact that a guy in a red shirt dies is tragic, but eh— that’s television. But when you watch the entire series, you realize that a disproportionately high percentage of people wearing red shirts die.
It’s not that Captain Kirk has it out for people in red shirts. Heck, one of his best friends wears a red shirt. And Scotty never gets killed, so clearly not all red shirts die. And bad things happen to Kirk, too. But still— when you start paying attention, it’s pretty clear that wearing a red shirt in Star Trek is a death sentence.

Perhaps this will let you understand better.
It’s not just this case. It’s just that the cases never stop happening.
I thought I would take a brake from all the seriousness for a bit. Checkout the pilot of this new sci fi comedy series from Cracked. I really hope they make a lot more of these. This was really fun. Enjoy!
Why Working on the Enterprise Sucks For Almost Everyone
Sorry, for some odd reason, I can’t embed the video.
Speaking of Starship Icarus, here’s something else from Cracked you might want to read after you’re done watching the video. 7 Emails That Prove Space Travel Will Suck in the Future
Okay, quick info on who Sparks McGee is:
To: < firstname.lastname@example.org>
Subject: star trek
Ya know the writers could have solved that whole image problem of Wesley Crusher by
A. Giving him a cool name like “Sparks Mcgee” and a peculiar accent, possibly a tattoo
B. Having him kill people randomly on the ship for no apparent reason.
C. Giving him a cool car to drive around in, like a 1978 Trans Am or one of them Dukes of Hazard cars
D. Giving him a cool catch phrase like “I got a course you can plot”
E. Wear a cowboy hat
Then like Picard would say “Number One, where the devil is Sparks Mcgee?”
Then Number one would say “In his muscle car sir”, then everyone would laugh except Worf who would say some shit about honor or something. Then people at home would think, “Man that Sparks Mcgee sure is cool, a real rebel.”
This meme has sparked (heh) convention cosplay, a tumblr of art and photos, and now a trailer for a Sparks McGee movie! Wil Wheaton, King of the Internets
[H]ere is the trailer for Sparks McGee: Into Darkness that I didn’t know about until now, three months after it was given to the world as a GIFT, YOU BASTARDS. IT WAS A GIFT TO HUMANITY.
All I want to say is that I haven’t played anything except basic Solitaire or various versions of Texas Hold ‘Em or Plants vs. Zombies on the computer since my early days of overplaying Warcraft II too long all night before going into work, but — dear and fluffy lord — I want to play this game. (I even tried to write something like it for one of my tabletop games, based on the ideas in FASA’s original Star Trek RPG.)
Give it a watch. It’s funny, if nothing else.
Don’t believe me? Watch this.
If you have the time over the New Year’s break, watch all the Star Trek: The Original Series episodes:
A warp drive to achieve faster-than-light travel — a concept popularized in television’s Star Trek — may not be as unrealistic as once thought, scientists say.
A warp drive would manipulate space-time itself to move a starship, taking advantage of a loophole in the laws of physics that prevent anything from moving faster than light. A concept for a real-life warp drive was suggested in 1994 by Mexican physicist Miguel Alcubierre, however subsequent calculations found that such a device would require prohibitive amounts of energy.
