A Star Trek MMO plans to boldy go where no other Star Trek piece of entertainment has gone before.
Atari and gaming developer Cryptic Studios have announced the new PC MMO, Star Trek Online available today in Australia and New Zealand. Already, over 1 million Star Trek fans have created accounts at the official websites.
Taking place in the year 2409, Star Trek Online lets fans have the opportunity to become a high ranking Starfleet officer and participate in missions that take them into the depths of space, across exotic planets and even inside other starships. Star Trek Online offers customization, from a player’s avatar to the ship he captains.
Additionally, actor Leonard Nimoy and Hollywood’s latest Spock, Zachary Quinto, have both lent their voices to the game. Nimoy voices the introduction for Star Trek Online and other key scenes in-game. Quinto plays the part of an Emergency Medial Hologram and voices the tutorial for this first-of-a-kind massively multiplayer online role-playing game, teaching fans how to explore the Star Trek Online universe, improve their characters, attain higher ranks, succeed in space combat and excel on away missions.
