It's been two years since J.J. Abrams defied the enraged masses of Trekkies, Trekkers, and whatever else they're calling themselves these days and rebooted Star Trek... hard.Gene Roddenberry's original creation was one of those things that, sure, was open to plenty of time line fudging, but how could you possibly mess with the sanctity of the original Enterprise crew? Well, be glad he did, since Star Trek turned out to be the most exciting thing the franchise has produced in many, many years. Two years later, and I still pop it in once in a while just to soak in the sweet, light-bloomy goodness. I still cry at that opening scene, too. Don't judge me, dammit.

You may now begin deconstructing every single piece of this screenshot and angrily decrying why none of it can possibly be canon.

Anyhoo, all of this rambling is supposed to lead up to me telling you about the newly announced Star Trek game for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC, which comes courtesy of Paramount Digital Entertainment and developer Digital Extremes. You see, all the press release managed to offer in terms of useful, printable information was the promise of "a stand alone story filled with action-packed combat" and co-op gameplay with players taking on the role of Kirk and Spock. Basically, I needed some filler. Hence the diatribe.

The stand-alone story will be penned by veteran game writer Marianne Krawczyk, who is previously credited with script work on all of the entries in the God of War series. Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman, the writer/producers of the new Abrams-universe Trek entries, are supervising on the story.

As for the promised co-op, the single, solitary screenshot PR provided us would seem to back-up the previously alluded-to "action," as well as, yes, both Kirk and Spock on screen at once. Also, Spock is totally holding a double phaser. What's that about?

Paramount will have Star Trek (working title) on display at E3, so we'll hopefully discover a bit more about this new title then. In the meantime, here's a little something to get you in the Kirk/Spock cooperatin' mood, if you catch my drift.

Hard not to cry at that beginning, although it's hard not to feel a bit manipulated. What the hell was she doing on a military ship again?
 
My favorite Star Trek games were those old adventure games, where the outcomes were pretty varied and optimal solutions were hard to get. Kept losing a red shirt to an avalanche, and I loved it.

I'm kind of excited, and then again not at all. Would have been more interested in diplomacy and dialogue options. Mass Effect in Star Trek disguise. Yup. I would totally play that.

Not the best Trek series to make a game about, but ok.  Just make sure I get to roam around the ship and explore space, land on planets, etc.

If they can somehow incorporate Spock's ability to talk their way out of most fights, or Kirk's ability to screw his way out of (into) them, then I'm sold. Lens flare and all.

Would have preferred it if they had Raven do the new game, as they have a fantastic track record with license games in general, and Star Trek in particular.

But hey, at least Digital Extremes aren't Bethesda.

So Marianne Krawczyk did the God of War scripts. I take it that means there will be lots of lines in ALL CAPS, giving Spock and Kirk opportunities to yell their thoughts.

I would kill for an original series game with a playable Shatner and Nimoy.
 
The icing on the cake would be if they could somehow recreate the terribleness of the special effects - now that would make for something special.

It can't be worse than Star Trek Online.
 
Especially the ground combat.

Im interested, Star trek Online's ground action sections where quite fun (just a shame every thing else in the game sucked!) so an offline game with that and decent story plus online co-op could be quite fun.

I know mostly all Star Trek games have been crap(with the exception of Elite Force) but doesn't mean this is an automatic failure.  Lets not write it off untill we've actually seen the game.

The opening scene is utter magnificence and I, too, have no qualms with admitting it leaves me in tears.  Still need to cross-reference the given Stardate with the one on that tombstone in the TOS pilot, though.

Is it just me that wishes they would give the license to Bioware? Mass Effect is pretty much Star Trek with sex, its not that much of a stretch and i reckon they could do the series (or movies) justice!
