Nokia and Verizon want you to join Starfleet Academy
When you visit the  joinstarfleetacademy.com you will see a nice shot of Nero’s Narada, and much of the site has theme of dealing with the Romulans on it.

What can you do at the Academy?, there are a few options:

  • V Cast Holodock (Videos, currently only trailers, but promises more exclusive interviews and ‘Romulan videos’)
  • Mobile Recreation Center (Verizon Phaser & Tricorder Applications + Trek mobile games)
  • Sensory Lab Testing (Star Trek themed wallpapers, screensavers, tones, etc)
  • Cadet Training facility (online games, one currently, more promised)
  • Enemy Combat Simulator (‘Hunt for Nero’ game, with prize of trip to space)

Right now there is little that is ‘new’ on the site, but there is the promise of new stuff on the Romulans and behind-the-scenes stuff. Here are some screenshots.
