A new online multiplayer Star Trek game has been announced by CBS Interactive and developers GameSamba and NGames.
Set in the mysterious extra-dimensional realm of Fluidic Space, Star Trek: Alien Domain is set “after the most chronologically recent Star Trek canon” and features an all-new story which places players in control of a variety of starships and technologies native to their chosen faction.
Starships include Constitution-class and Defiant-class starships for the Federation, and D7 Battle Cruisers and Bird-of-Prey for the Klingon Empire. Players will even be able to craft and pilot unprecedented super starships created through emerging technologies.
Players will need to create a diverse fleet to explore the deep reaches of Fluidic Space and quell its threats, as well as defend against rival colonies and players.
“We’re excited to make a game based on a franchise we’re all such huge fans of,” said Scott Wong, president of GameSamba.
“The chance to add our own story to the Star Trek universe, and help bring it to a global audience, is one of those opportunities you can only dream of.”
GameSamba say more information will be revealed in the coming months.
