Star Trek Online won’t be the online Star Trek game online for long.
Coming this summer, Gameforge’s Star Trek: Infinite Space will use a browser plugin, so no download is required, and it will be free to play. Alpha testing is to begin late this year. Players can choose the Federation or Klingon factions, and the game is set in the timeline of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine — my favorite of the various Trek series!
Longtime Star Trek consultants Michael and Denise Okuda are involved — so it definitely has some serious credibility going for it — along with game designer, author, producer and script writer Lee Sheldon.
