According to some members of the production team for “Star Trek: Renegades,” filming for it will be concluded on October 18th. Due to the later than anticipated start, there’s been no solid word on a release date that has changed from the originally projected 2014 date. The production wishes to thank all of the actors, crew, and all of the fans for their support and funding for the production; and, to say thank you, they’ve released the video below! Here’s to all of you!
Did you miss this year’s Phoenix ComiCon, in Arizona, back in the spring? Luckily, the main “Babylon 5” panel was captured on video by the YouTube user Nai Wang. It’s in 2 parts and totals about 2 hours. Hope you enjoy!
“Blue Dream,” was released on iTunes, to purchase. Walter filmed “Blue Dream” in 2011 alongside many of the “Mad CowGirl” crew members and actors, including James Duval and Gregory Hatanaka. It was released for a couple of film festivals, but now you can purchase it for yourself HERE.

Here is a three-part interview with Walter, done by the “Star Trek: Renegades” production, about the new fan film he has been working on.

Filming begins in October and the movie is set to debut in 2014!
