Star Trek Online is celebrating its 10th birthday with Star Trek: Picard and Discovery cameos

When Star Trek Online launched into 2010, Star Trek was dead as a TV show, living on only in rebooted movies which seemed not wholly fond of the shows. Ten years later, two Treks are boldly on the go - and the MMORPG taps both of them for its latest contentblast, named Legacy. A new quests call back to Trek old and new, revisiting some…

Star Trek: 25th Anniversary has so much to teach modern games

Please update your nomenclature from Star Trek: 25nd Anniversary to Star Trek: 52th Anniversary. It is indeed a worrisome 27 years since this first Star Trek graphic adventure game came out in 1992. But sure - SURELY - it must be absolutely unplayable rubbish now, right? I mean, let's look at the ingredients: TV/Movie tie-in game. Non-Sierra/LucasArts early '90s adventure. Three decades old. Thing is,…

CBS decloak to drop a cease-and-desist on virtual Star Trek Enterprise-D tour Stage 9

Like the Ferengi, corporations can justify nearly anything in the name of potential profit. Today's fan-casualty is Stage 9, a virtual recreation of Star Trek's Enterprise-D to walk around - less a game, more a virtual Star Trek museum piece. After two years of work, it was issued a cease-and-desist by TV network CBS earlier this month, and lead developer Scragnog formally announced its demise…

Star Trek: Bridge Crew warping to The Next Generation

An expansion for Star Trek: Bridge Crew will boldly go to The Next Generation, Ubisoft announced today, including Picard's Enterprise NCC-1701-D rocketship and TNG baddies like the Romulans and Borg. It'll add a new chair to the bridge and new mission types too. Do remember that the cooperative command 'em up has made VR optional, so you needn't be gogged up to make it so.…

Star Trek: Bridge Crew delayed again but getting TOSsy

A long time ago in a city far, far away (E3 2016 in Los Angeles), Ubisoft announced virtual reality spaceship command 'em up Star Trek: Bridge Crew [official site] for release in autumn 2016. Well! A fair few Kessel Runs later, it's been delayed again, this time to May 30th. Many Bothans died to bring us this information but, on the bright side, they did…

Retrospective – Star Trek: Elite Force II

Jean-Luc Picard looks small and lonely. Older, somehow more statesmanlike than ever, still captain of the Starfleet's flagship, but weirdly tiny, as though he is slowly disappearing. Because he's alone. All of his officers have gone. There's just all these unfamiliar young people now. Young, quiet, anonymous. Oh, and a visiting Tuvok from Voyager, but he's no Data, is he?

Have You Played… Star Trek: 25th Anniversary?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. This is my first time with Interplay's TOS-set point and click adventure game since the 90s. I was braced for awful things. I was wrong. It's still rather lovely - and, if the Abramsverse leaves you pining for the more measured approach of…

Ubi’s Star Trek: Bridge Crew Manning Stations In VR

In the post-currency, proto-post-scarcity Federation of Star Trek, you and all your chums can hang out in virtual reality together on holodecks. Ubisoft have gotten a little ahead of themselves, forgetting that the current state of Earth is perhaps best described as 'pre-collapse sigh' or 'whyyyyyy', and announced a Star Trek virtual reality game made for multiple players with their own cybergoggles. Star Trek: Bridge…

Star Trek Games Boldly Go Onto GOG

May the 7th be with you, as I guess people say nowadays. I don't understand youths. The point is: a trio of ye olde Star Trek games with Kirk, Spock, Sulu, and the gang have been discovered stuck in a transporter buffer for a few decades, and those clever clogs at GOG have rematerialised them to put them back on sale. Now on GOG -…

Mod Of The Century: Distant Worlds Star Trek

Distant Worlds is the best space strategy game ever made, although I'll permit some leeway for the Master of Orion 2 lovers and have a real soft spot for Ascendancy. Hell, if you want to argue a case for Master of Orion 3, I'd love to read it but I'd need a heavy dose of sedatives on hand in case things became a little too…

Star Trek – The Videogame review

It's finally appeared. After being much-delayed, apparently to coincide with the film that's out next month, Star Trek The Videogame (as I think we're calling it now) is out in the States now, and other parts of the world tomorrow (but for some reason Namco Bandai accidentally forgot to send review codes to ANYONE!). Perhaps I showed my hand regarding my thoughts on Star Trek,…

Star Trek Out In The States, Slowly Crossing Space Oceans

Star Trek: The Video Game (right now linking to a 404) is out now! Unless you're not in America! Because publishers and stores are still living in 1992! So it is that if you're in the western colonies, you can now buy and play the game and tell us if it's any good. Meanwhile we, in the Mother Country, are stuck with an ironically named…

Star Trek Is A Spock And Kirk Buddy Game, OK

Oh, marketing. Attaching a line to your Star Trek Making Of video that says "The Ultimate Co-op Experience" is just asking for trouble, isn't it? I know I barely get to be in charge of anything in this universe, but in this case I'd definitely have gone for "Look, Spock and Kirk Can Hold Each Other." And they can, as the video explained: it had…

Star Trek To Feature Ship From Star Trek

Star Trek has been in development for over four hundred and fifty thousand years now. The game's set between the two J.J. Abrams films, yet still calls itself simply "Star Trek", presumably in a bid to be as impossible to Google for as is humanly imaginable. (They may as well have called it "Britney Spears".) The release is currently set for April 23rd in the…

D.I.C.E. 2013: Newell Vs Abrams – FIGHT!

Some people talk. You know, with tongues and barbaric throat gurgles. Like peasants. But those people haven't conquered entire entertainment industries using titanic minds and the world's supply of lens flare alone. So naturally, Gabe Newell and JJ Abrams' verbal sparring match drew a bit more attention than the average bout of watercooler small talk. Also, it helps when the conversation involves the formation of…

Star Trek: The Game Of The Gap Between The Two Films

The ostentatiously-named Star Trek (in fact the fifty-third Star Trek computer game) isn't due until early next year, despite trailers having been appearing since 2011. But trailers still they a-come, and Gamescom has revealed yet another. It's an action-packed frenzy of Kirk-and-Spock shootyfighting, and far too few bleepy-bloopy computer noises for my liking. There are also ninety-six billion new screenshots, which you can see below.

Spock Ops: Star Trek Trailer Discovers Slow-Mo

If you want to wring maximum pleasure from this post, I suggest imagining every word coated in the tendril-like glue that is the movie/TV slow-mo deep voice sound effect. It is, after all, only fitting, given that the grand majority of the new Star Trek trailer drives well under the warp speed limit. Running, seemingly suicidal cliff diving, and a bit of covering shooting are the…

Kirk Holds Spock’s Hands In Next Year’s Star Trek

As if the year 2013 didn't already sound futuristic enough, the co-operative Star Trek action game that was announced at 2011's E3 finally has a release date: the first quarter of 2013. And there's no chance of it falling into a worm hole, because they're using it to get everyone excited about the next Star Trek movie, out May of next year. Slash machinima makers…
