Looking for that perfect after-Christmas gift for the fan film aficionado in your life? How about something from the RENEGADES merchandise collection?
The Renegades folks first began producing their own branded perks waaaaaay back in 2012 when they held their first Kickstarter and raised an amazing $242,483 from 2,367 backers. At that point, the perks were fairly simple: a special edition DVD of the completed Star Trek: Renegades fan film (back then, producing DVDs with the words “Star Trek” on the cover as perks was allowed), a CD compilation of the music, and an extra DVD and soundtrack for Star Trek: Of Gods and Men, their first fan production from back in 2008. There was also an “I’m a Renegade” T-shirt and autographed cast photos.
The following year, their next campaign—an Indiegogo that generated an additional $132,555 from 1500 backers—introduced a prop replica of their Starfleet comm badge from about ten years after Voyager‘s return.
By the time they reached their fourth crowdfunding campaign in November 2015—a Kickstarter for the first full episode “The Requiem”that took in just over $378,000 from 3,379 backers—they had added a patch (of course!) and a mini-poster signed by all of the cast. And even though this poster said “Star Trek: Renegades,” remember that this was STILL half a year before CBS released their fan film guidelines (and two months before Axanar got sued for copyright infringement).
Of course, once the guidelines came out, Renegades quickly dropped the “Star Trek” from its branding (becoming Renegades: The Series), and surgically removed all traces of CBS-owned intellectual property from their next production.
The good news for show-runner SKY CONWAY and fans of Renegades is that this change in branding means that these folks can now sell whatever merchandise they want to based on their fan film content and CBS can’t say a darned thing…yay!
And sell it, they shall! The loot is all located on THE ATOMIC NETWORK website (that’s where Renegades and other productions from those folks are streaming from). And if you’re a fan of the Renegades fan series (as I am), you’ll find this all VERY exciting!
Here’s what they’re offering (with descriptions taken from their website)…
Renegades: The Requiem on DVD or Blu-Ray
We’re really going to pack this edition full of special features: behind-the-scenes vignettes, deleted scenes, SFX features, and of course a gag reel. DVDs/Blu-Rays will begin shipping once Renegades: the Requiem is publicly released.
[NOTE from Jonathan – For those wanting to view the full Renegades: The Requiem (parts 1 and 2) online, you can stream it from The Atomic Network website. Just click here. You will need to register and set up an account, but the account is free to create.]
Prequel Renegades Novels
Renegades: The Judas War
Autographed by Author Sky Conway!
Before the events of Renegades there was the thrilling, mysterious Judas War. Now you can learn the whole story in the prequel novel Renegades: The Judas War.
The year is 2387, and the Confederation is threatened by a faceless entity bent on the destruction of everything they hold dear: exploration, equality and freedom. A secret cabal of high-ranking officials launches their first attack as they embark on an agenda designed to fracture the very foundation of the Confederation…and set the galaxy on the path toward genocidal war.
Caught in the middle of the conflict is Lexxa, First Officer of FleetCom’s newest destroyer, the Icarus. Thrust into a life she never wanted, she finds herself betrayed and sabotaged at every turn. And is the Confederation even worth saving? Written by Micheal Koogler and Sky Conway
If you love Renegades, we think you’ll love this look at Lexxa’s earlier adventures, and we’re proud to offer this prequel tale to you.
Autographed by Author Sky Conway!
A year has passed and the Confederation teeters on the brink of annihilation.
Lexxa Singh commands the Icarus where she and her crew of outlaws and renegades have managed to live a life free from the constraints of the Confederation and its laws.
But her nightmares about killing the Admiral have never ceased, and when the Icarus is suddenly attacked by an unknown enemy, she finds herself drawn back into the web of deceit, chaos, and terror the Cabal has woven throughout the Confederation over the years.
Only this time, there is no escape.
[Another NOTE from Jonathan – Also available (for a slightly higher price) are copies of the novels signed by Walter Koenig in addition to Sky Conway.]
Model Kit of the HMS Icarus
Ok, this one is SUPER COOL – a 1/677 model kit of the HMS Icarus. This is a high quality, light-able, limited edition resin model of the Icarus.

You can be one of the first and few to proudly own this limited edition of the Renegades hero ship, ICARUS, as seen in Renegades.

Star Trek Enterprise NCC-1701-D (Ready Room) Lithograph
In the midst of the hype for Captain Picard’s imminent return, we’re excited to offer you a chance to own or gift a piece of Star Trek history. We have a small collection of 26-year-old, limited edition and certified authentic reproductions of the very painting that graced the walls of Captain Picard’s Ready Room. It’s become one of the most sought after Star Trek collectibles, so this opportunity won’t last long.
This piece was painted by Andrew Probert and Rick Sternbach. Andrew was the original designer of the the Enterprise-D for Gene Roddenberry. Rick is a legendary illustrator best known for his years of art design on Star Trek. Andrew and Rick hand-signed and numbered the series, which was named “Star Trek Art Form The Final Frontier”.
Atomic Network Founder and CEO Sky Conway published this print in 1993 and it sold out almost immediately. He retained only a small collection of the 1,950 certified authentic lithographs, and the rest have rarely been sold on secondary markets. So, it’s unlikely you’ll find these anywhere else.
The Renegades Communicator Badge
An actual prop.. see Certificate of Authenticity.
Rare and highly collectible!
There’s also a set of ten 8×10 photos of the main cast members of “The Requiem,” each autographed. The set comes with a Renegades clothing patch collection.
You can visit the following website for pricing (which might raise a few eyebrows for certain items)…
Remember that the money collected isn’t going into making any kind of business profit (although since it’s no longer a Star Trek fan production, that’d still be okay). Instead, it will be funneled into more productions from The Atomic Network…including more Renegades!
