Ten years after Voyager’s return from the Delta Quadrant, the Federation is in crisis. Someone has caused space and time to fold around several planets, all of which are the Federation’s main suppliers of dilithium, essentially cutting off the supply for several millennia.  Starfleet’s methods to stop those responsible have been ineffective. This necessitates more drastic measures, some of which are outside the Federation’s jurisdiction. It now falls to Admiral Pavel Chekov, head of Starfleet Intelligence, and Commander Tuvok, Voyager’s former security officer and new head of the clandestine Section 31, to put together a new covert, renegade crew – primarily comprised of outcasts, rogues and even criminals.  But can they refrain from killing each other to accomplish their task? That may be the bigger question…

Renegades will be directed by veteran Trek actor Tim Russ.  It will feature a combination of former Trek stars and other established and up and coming actors, including Walter Koenig, Tim Russ, Adrienne Wilkinson, J.G. Hertzler, Robert Picardo, Gary Graham, Garrett Wang, Corin Nemec, Edward Furlong, Larissa Gomes, Tarah Paige, Grant Imahara. Courtney Peldon, Manu Intiraymi, Richard Herd, Vic Mignona, Chasty Ballesteros and Kevin Fry.

I recently heard Doctor Who is getting an New TARDIS console, and control room.

However once I researched further into this I was amazed!
Not sure what the control room looks like, but this picture that was released of the “new” console looks to me almost identical to the one used in the 80’s episodes. 

Im not against changing things up at all. I just really liked the steampunk like feel of the previous control room, and console. I guess the Doctors going all 80’s retro on us!! :)
