    There people out there who don't think of NuTrek as an alternative universe?

    They exist. I recently started writing for WhatCulture.com and my first article (which got me the job) was about how a Klingon animated series would be a good choice because they exist in both universes and I got this comment:

    It's an alternate timeline in the same multiverse. The film, the tie-in novels and Word of God all say the timeline split in 2233 when Nero appeared, that they share the same past. That 2233 split wouldn't explain how the Gorn suddenly became extra-galactic conquerors.

    "Arena" was a misunderstanding. The Gorn found a human outpost in their territory and had a fit. If they were this ruthless force who'd dominated an entire galaxy, why didn't they do the same to our galaxy? It doesn't fit the peaceful ending of "Arena" or the continuing peace in DS9's time.

    Is there anything canon about the years between TOS and DS9? Who knows what happened? Just because they coul be extra galactic conquerors doesn't negate the possibility of them coming into the galaxy, setting up shop and claiming territory. They could have been building up forces to strike and never did in anything canon, they could have gone against other species, I just don't see anything to this that makes my continuity alarm go off.

    Yeah, I'm probably leaping ahead of myself. And even if not, those in charge are entitled to change their minds.

    RE: Gorn

    Unless it gets specific with times and such it is also possible that the Gorn were once this massive force that came from another galaxy. I mean that could be 10,000 year ago.

    Obviously without specifics it is hard to judge but you could easily say something like that since cannon is sparse when it comes to the Gorn. They're like Boba Fett before Episode II that is.

    Anyone know if this game is just a shooter? From the trailer I saw a few pages back it looks like that is what this is.

    I wonder if you'll be able to explore, having more of a sand-box/RPG/adventure feel to it?

    Anyone know?

    Shooter combat, exploration of the Enterprise, and RPG style equipment leveling. So it's an adventure game I guess (the genres are melding together so much that it's hard to label stuff now).

    Possible new trailer:

    The graphics look kind of janky in this one, which worries me after hearing about how bad Aliens: Colonial Marines was. This game cannot afford to be that bad if Trek gaming is to get out of its slump.

    As a non-gamer, the latest behind the scenes/trailer video has made me consider buying a ST game for only the second timer ever...and it would be the first ST game I ever bought. The only other game I have PERIOD is Mass Effect 2.

    Other than the annoying plasticy waxy look of Kirk and Spock, which makes them look like action figures, and some slightly distorted bridge consoles (the top panels have been shrunk, the middle ones stretched vertically), it looks really good and a lot of fun. I just hope all the shooting and killing doesn't ruin the Star Trekkieness of it.

    It could be a trick of perspective, but at :57 it looks like the corridor continues around and branches off past where the bridge window (and very front of the deck) is.

    The music in the background sounds amazing. Looks like Giacchino is scoring the game. I sure hope so. :)
