It is time once again to check in with the world of Star Trek gaming. First up we have recent video interview giving more details on Star Trek: Infinite Space, the upcoming browser game, along with some in game screenshots. And for Star Trek Online, Crytpic have released a new original series bundle that allows you to play the game old school. All that and more below.
Infinite Space: New details, screenshots & video contest
This summer Gameforge will release Star Trek: Infinite Space, a free to play browser game set in the DS9 universe during the Dominion War. In this video from G4TV, Gameforge’s Ralf Adam gives more details on "Star Trek: Infinite Space", including how the free-to-play/micro-transaction model works and what could be coming from the future.
Gameforge has also released this screenshot from the game.
Finally Gameforge has just announced a new video contest to win an Apple iPod Touch. To enter the contest you need to create a short video clip (max 1-2 minutes) of yourself telling the world: “I Will Play Star Trek – Infinite Space Because…” (with the answers coming from you of course). The contest will run from Today (March 22nd) until April 5th (23:59 GMT). To enter, upload your video on YouTube (or other video site) and post a link on the official forum (or email link to firstname.lastname@example.org). The 10 videos deemed best will be posted on the official Facebook page on April 11th and the video with the most likes after April 15th (14:00 GMT) wins.
STO: TOS pack + Multi-vector ship + more
Is Star Trek Online too 25th century for you? If so, Cryptic has put all their TOS era stuff into one bundle (for 1400 Atari Points), including TOS Federation ship interior, TOS Federation Bridge, access to Federation Shuttlecraft Class F, TOS-style Type 2 Phaser Variant, and 3 TOS Federation Costume Packs (TOS Dress Uniform, Medical Uniform and Command Tunic). More details at the C-Store, and here is a promo video.
Earlier Cryptic introduced the Federation Multi-Vector Advanced Escort (based on the USS Prometheus seen on Voyager), and now the ship is available for 1200 Atari Tokens at the C-Store, and here is a video showing off what it can do (via PWIFoxy).
And finally, here is this weeks episode of the excellent STO podcast, STOked.
