The staff here at Hailing Frequency would first like to apolagise for the gap in Star Trek Gaming coverage over the past few months.   There has been alot of Star Trek Gaming news over the past several months and we aim to get you all caught up over the coming days!

Digital Extremes, the ground-breaking games development company behind hit games such as Unreal Tournament, Homefront, Bioshock and The Darkness, signed a deal earlier this year with Paramount Digital to develop a high-budget, triple-A game based on the 2009 JJ Abrams Star Trek Movie.

With an original story and unprecedented co-op experience, the game casts players as Kirk and Spock for the first time ever.

The game, which continues the adventure that director and producer J.J. Abrams envisioned with Star Trek (2009), boasts a stand alone story filled with action-packed combat as Kirk and Spock must work together to stop a legendary enemy race bent on conquering the galaxy.

“Star Trek challenges the boundaries of co-op gameplay with a galactic adventure that gamers and fans have never experienced,” said Tom Lesinski, President of Paramount Digital Entertainment. “Working closely with the Star Trek filmmaking team throughout development, the game is sure to deliver AAA production values, a wide variety of gameplay and all the action you would expect from the hit franchise. This will be the definitive Star Trek gaming experience.”

Star Trek features an original story by BAFTA award winner and God of War writer, Marianne Krawczyk, in collaboration with the writer/producers of the new Star Trek films, Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman.

Digital Extremes are currently in lockdown mode with regard to public relations, marketing and interview requests related to this new Star Trek Game, however Hailing Frequency and Trek Radio are both in contact with the game developers and have been promised an exclusive interview after christmas, possibly in January 2012 – so keep an eye on Hailing Frequency or Trek Radio for all of the latest news related to this exciting new game!
