Perpetual’s Star Trek: Online MMORPG is still over a year away, but in a new ‘DevLog‘ they are showing off quite a bit of new artwork for the game. In the past they have shown large matte painting vistas, such as this Vulcan Village…
…now they are showing individual components, plus a ‘killer’ surprise (below)
Here is concept art for a couple of the buildings:
And a couple of specific props:
more component artwork available at the STO DevLog
Attack of Planet Killer
It wasn’t all Vulcan Village stuff for this DevLog. STO’s Story Lead Mike Stemmle (who says he is ‘a great admirer of Commodore Decker’s "five-day bender" stubble’) leaves fans with a high res concept art image for something that should be familiar to all TrekMovie.com readers. The game is set 25 years after Star Trek Nemesis, but it is cool to see TOS elements like this one from "The Doomsday Machine" show up. Could we be seeing space amoebas too?
Of course we are still waiting to see actual computer renders of all this concept art, but the DevLog promises that for a ‘future update.’ Another big thing that everyone is waiting for is the reveal of the final list of playable races. Apparently these too will be revealed with final in-game artwork. 2007 has mostly been a year of teases, but the game goes into betatest sometime in 2008 (for an early 2009 release). So hopefully it wont be too long until we see what this game really looks like.
