    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    The first time? Aside from 25th Anniversary and Judgment Rites, among others...

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

    I think this looks great! Though there has only been 1 ingame pic and this concept art thus far :)

    As for Spocks weapon it looks like a kind of new dual-phaser or maybe its just a captured alien weapon. Looks cool anyway.

    I look forward to the footage from E3.

    Maybe some of the same guys are working on it who worked on Halo.

    Thanks.
