Set 25 years after the end of the Dominion War, Star Trek: Renaissance followed the crew of the USS Enterprise-G as it sought out new worlds, new life, new civilizations... and tried to pull a splintering Alpha Quadrant back together.
For Captain Neil Cross and the crew of the NCC-1701-G, the Federation's darkest hour has arrived and the responsibility falls to them to defend the Federation from all enemies, foreign...and domestic.
As of 2007, this series is considered closed. It ran for four seasons (2001-2004).
Note: No Spoilers
Star Trek: Renaissance holds two themes which most seasonal arcs tend to center around.
First is the tendency for dark stories, with personal tragedies. Most of the Enterprise crew either have tragic histories or their story aboard the Enterprise is tragic (or in many cases, both). Neil Cross is a man with a dark history and a checkered reputation...yet in the face of such adversity, he attempts to maintain his own fragile hope that all things will turn out for the best. Similar stories exist through the main cast of Renaissance.
The second theme is the incorporation of politically based story lines. The leaders of Starfleet stand at a delicate threshold, trying to figure what is needed to defend the Federation, and what measures reach beyond the scope of their authority. Similarly, our characters must continually attempt to walk the line of being keepers of the peace or enforcing the peace. All too often, it seems that lives are lost needlessly in the name of defending the Federation.
The show is a unique blend of these two elements, as the dark state of the Federation mirrors the struggles in the character's lives.
