While we wait for the third Star Trek reboot film and hope for the franchise to return to TV, here's a non-canon fan film that Trekkers might want to check out. Star Trek: Renegades is a film that has been in development since 2012. A new trailer has finally been released, and it features a lot of impressive footage that will excite fans of the franchise.

It is ten years after Voyager’s return from the Delta Quadrant, and the Federation is in a crisis. The Federation’s main suppliers of dilithium crystals are disappearing. Space and time have folded around several planets, effectively isolating them from any contact with outside worlds. And this phenomenon is not natural – someone or something is causing this 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. Tuvok must put together a new covert, renegade crew – mostly outcasts and rogues – 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?

I'm looking forward to seeing this fan film, and I hope they continue developing more films that look as spectacular as this. The film is expected to complete in Summer 2015.
