I have been craving some Star Trek for a while now, and it looks like there might be a game for the Xbox 360 called Star Trek: Legacy: A New Frontier.
Speaking to Game Informer magazine, Mad Doc CEO Ian Lane Davis said: “We’ve always wanted to do a Star Trek game that captures the core Star Trek fantasy.
“When you look at the history of Star Trek games, there have been some good games, but we felt we haven’t had the chance to make the game the Star Trek fans want until now.”
The game will focus on ship versus ship combat, and you’ll start off in charge of the Enterprise NX-01. As the game progresses you’ll get more ships to command, eventually controlling up to four units (a unit is comprised of one capital ship and two smaller crafts).
Each time you win a battle, you’ll be rewarded with “Command Points” which you can use to buy new ships or upgrades, including stronger shields and photon torpedoes.
“When a ship dies, that’s a big thing in Star Trek. It only happens a few times in the whole 700-plus hours of the whole Star Trek cannon where you see the Enterprise get destroyed. It’s a big thing and it should mean something.”
The game will take place over the time periods of three of the more popular shows, including Enterprise, The Original Series, and The Next Generation. You can expect to face off against the Klingons, Borg and Romulans. It should be great fun ,except for dealing with the NX-01.
