New Online Trek Game - Star Trek "Academy Trainer"
« on: 17 April 2009 06:21 PM »
In whats seems to be a non-stop and relentless media push for the upcoming Star Trek movie from JJ Abrams, another Star Trek Game has been revealed today.

Whereas Star Trek "D-A-C" is a console game that will be available on X-Box Live and PlayStation Network, Star Trek "Academy Trainer" merely seems to be an online flash style game and while this in of itself is nothing much to be excited about, it does fall into line with something that Hailing Frequency was told in a telephone call with Paramount around a week ago - that there would be a series of games both small and large coming in the next few months.

"As a Starfleet Cadet, you will face a series of tasks, or quizzes. Most of the tasks are timed, and success will depend on prompt solutions. Additional tasks will test your visual acuity, while others, rapid reasoning or memory skills.

The Starfleet Academy Trainer blends elements from the movie with the Star Trek brand and provides reoccurring tasks (visual pattern recognition), where you as a cadet will examine images from the film, searching for discrepancies.

The cadet is given feedback after each task, and at the end of the game, a "profile" is generated which indicates a rank, based on your score (e.g. Ensign - Vice Admiral) and a recommended specialization: Command, Security and Engineering or Science and Medical."

The game is available online now and you can check it out at or you can check it out below (if you are viewing this message via the forum.
