Star Trek, a possibly canon co-op title.

http://kotaku.com/5808211/the-new-st...as-gone-before

For the first time in Trek gaming history, players will be able to step into the shoes of Kirk and Spock, working together to save the galaxy from a "legendary alien race". The story is a continuation of the 2009 film, so expect to see the likenesses of Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto instead of Shatner and Nimoy. I'm fine with that. Judging by the game's description of action-packed combat and the initial screenshot, the latter pair would have looked terribly out-of-place here anyway.
Star Trek features a brand new story written by God of War writer Marianne Krawczyk, overseen by movie writers Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman, so expect a compelling narrative that closely follows the fiction of the new film franchise.

It seems to me that Star Trek is moving beyond the "only what you see on screen is canon" and on to "whatever TPTB say is canon is canon".

About damn time. Figured I'd be dead by the time they got around to making another decent Trek game.

That's a wicked looking weapon Spock in holding in the art.

Re: Star Trek, a possibly canon co-op title.

If a game hits the quality of for example Mass Effect it needs to be canon.

I like the idea of an ST game being canon a lot.

i wonder if the alien menace will be a known species or not.

Maybe one of those weird Delat Quadrant species.

Hopefully there's a single-player campaign.

Re: Star Trek, a possibly canon co-op title.

For the first time in years, I'm excited about a Trek game.

I'm reserving the whole extent of my anticipation until we get another look, though.

Nice! Although given the recent spate of horrible Trek games (Star Trek: Legacy sounded awesome until I actually played it) I'm reserving judgment until I actually see it.

Re: Star Trek, a possibly canon co-op title.

I'm hoping they add some sort of depth to the game's story. In most Star Trek games that I've played, the plot is pretty lame and/or extremely similar to many other games. Don't let the lack of interesting characters hit you on the way out.

If it's something like Knights of the Old Republic 2-level storytelling, I'll be more interested. Same goes for complete lack of story. But if there's going to be a story, I hope they pull out all the stops.

Looks like we have two threads for this - can we get a merger from a mod?

It'll be nice to play as a main Star Trek character again; I think the last time you could do that was in DS9's The Fallen.

It'll be great if the game is like Mass Effect.
