Bridge Commander 2 ends, rebranded as “Stellar Expanse”.

Posted on September 20th, 2017 by Zach Nicodemous

After over half a decade in development, the fan project “Bridge Commander 2” has ceased development and re-branded as “Stellar Expanse”.

The project will no longer make use of the Star Trek universe or any of its familiar ships, characters or locales and will now be an entirely original project.  The project creator insists that no cease-and-desist was ever received from CBS and that this move has been made as a way to release a game faster, unbound by the requirements, rules or limitations of the Star Trek universe.

The move has come as a surprise to some fans who have in the past supported the project financially on the basis that it is set in the “Star Trek” universe.

One supporter commented:

Being one of the supporters who shelled out 200 bucks to help with a Star Trek game, I’m pretty upset about not even having a Star Trek game. I’m really looking forward to your answers.

The project creator replied:

There’s just some things that I’m not at liberty to discuss in public, i really am sorry about that, but just know that it’s for the better.

There are an array of other comments from folks disappointed in this move and it is unclear as to whether those who financially supported will be able to request their money back given that the game they supported will no longer be released.

As a Star Trek Gaming website, Hailing Frequency will no longer be providing coverage of this project; therefore if you do wish to continue supporting the project, be sure to check out their Facebook page.
