Fan Films — “The Carbonite Maneuver” & “STAR TREK: Renegades” [mashup/fan film]

Watch what happens when Star Trek and Star Wars collide, in an alternate galaxy further than far away — YouTuber SonofSpork made this ’80s style trailer for a crossover movie featuring characters from Star Wars and Star Trek: The Original Series. It’s quite well put together. So “prepare yourself and your family, as two of the most beloved and cherished Sci-fi/Fantasy franchises of all time, collide in this Star-tacular, motion picture event!”

That was well composited. Unrelated, yet keeping in the same fan loving vein, is Star Trek: Renegades, an independently produced television pilot for a new Star Trek series, put together by several genuine former Star Trek actors:

Not sure how successful Renegades was at influencing the powers that be to produce a new Star Trek series, but it looks like they had fun making it. Synopsis reads good too.

It is ten years after the starship Voyager‍ ’​s return from the Delta Quadrant, and the Federation is in a crisis. The Federation’s main suppliers of dilithium crystals (the primary catalyst for the fuel used in faster-than-light travel) are disappearing. Space and time have folded around several planets, effectively isolating them from any contact with outside worlds. The phenomenon is not natural – someone or something is causing it to happen. This necessitates drastic measures; some of which are outside the Federation’s normal jurisdiction. For this, Admiral Pavel Chekov, head of Starfleet Intelligence, turns to Commander Tuvok, Voyager‍ ’​s former security officer and current head of the newly reorganized Section 31, Starfleet’s autonomous intelligence and defense organization. Tuvok must put together a new covert, renegade crew – mostly outcasts and rogues – and even criminals. This new crew is tasked with finding out what is causing the folding of time and space, and stopping it at all costs. But will they be able to put aside their differences and stop trying to kill one another in time to accomplish their mission?
