Star Trek: Renegades

Star Trek: Renegades is an independent film made by the same team that brought us Star Trek: Of Gods and Men.

In Star Trek: Renegades, ten years has passed since the return of the starship Voyager. And the Federation is in crisis. The main suppliers of dillithium crystals are disappearing and space and time have folded around several planets. This necessitates drastic measures; For this, 143-year old Admiral Pavel Chekov - played by Walter Koenig - head of Starfleet Intelligence, turns to Commander Tuvok, head of the newly reorganized Section 31. Tuvok must put together a new covert, renegade crew - mostly outcasts and rogues - even criminals. A futuristic Dirty Dozen. Or is that The Dillithium Dirty Dozen?

Star Trek: Renegades is a film set in the original Star Trek universe, and is not to be confused with the re-imagined universe of J.J. Abrams. The film also stars Sean Young, Robert Picardo, Edward Furlong and Corin Nemec.

Do you like Nacho Cheese? Do you want a Nacho Cheese Candle? Do you miss the country air? Do you want a Skunk Candle to remind you of your childhood trips? The Stinky Candle Company produces these along with the Bacon Candle, the Fart Candle, not to mention some perhaps better smelling Popcorn, Chocolate Chip Cookie and Apple Pie Candles.
Gifts for the people who have everything, or for those whom we are obligated to give.

Leather Jacket Candle and Onion Candle

The big news that broke is that Ennio Morricone is the soundtrack composer. This marks the first time in 40 years that Morricone scored a Western.
While Morricone has kept himself busy these last few decades with over 500 film credits to his name, his most iconic work perhaps came from the spaghetti westerns, Once Upon a Time in the West and The Good the Bad and the Ugly.
