Prolific web-based publisher NGames has teased a new free-to-play Star Trek MMO that takes place after the events of Star Trek: Voyager and is set in Fluidic Space. Players must either side with the Klingons or the Federation as they control fleets, explore, and battle Species 8472. The game will be released on NGames-operated Games321.com. NGames promises more information in the coming weeks, but so far they’ve only given us a single screenshot of the game (above).
A new free-to-play web-based Star Trek MMO is in development by NGames, an online games publisher. The game will be released on NGames-operated Game321.com. The untitled MMO will task players with controlling the Federation or Klingons while operating within Fluidic Space, home of Star Trek antagonists Species 8472. Players can build bases, explore, research technologies, and control strategic fleet-based combat.
“Players must side with either the Federation or Klingons and join in an all-out war as both sides fight each other, fend off invasions from Species 8472, and prepare for the many other untold threats of Fluidic Space,” states the game’s press release.
The press release explains that the Federation received a distress call from an unknown ship in Fluidic Space, which the Klingons promptly intercepted. Both factions arrived in Fluidic Space, where “war is on the verge of breaking out.” The game takes place post-Voyager.
Combat plays a pivotal role in the game, as players must build their own ships and create fleets to combat each other. Constitution-class, Defiant-class, Klingon Birds of Prey, and D7 starships are available, along with “super starships” created through “the help of brand-new technologies.”
“Fleets are essential for exploring deep space, defeating weird and wonderful monsters, attacking enemy planets and intercepting plunder ships,” said the press release. NGames is known for the Pockie Ninja series, FoxLi Rush, Cyber Monster, Tales of Solaris, Wartune, and several other web-based games. The company has recently entered the mobile games market, as well. NGames states more information on this Star Trek MMO will be released in the coming weeks.
