New Star Trek Trivia Game coming in February To International Markets
Live Long and Prosper! Play Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Editions. Classic Star Trek Edition Announced
Deep Silver, doublesix digital and CBS Consumer Products today revealed the Star Trek: The Original Series – Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Edition for PlayStation®3 and Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. This edition based on the world-famous television franchise is the second big brand edition for the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Editions series. It is being produced in cooperation with 2waytraffic International, part of Sony Pictures Television, which owns and licenses the Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? format around the world. It will be available to fans worldwide except North America, Canada and Mexico.
The Star Trek: The Original Series – Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Edition features the authentic look & feel of the popular science-fiction television series, as well as 600 questions based on the classic Star Trek universe. The Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? studio is set aboard a Constitution-class starship bridge; the host, audience, lifelines and contestants are all themed around the original Star Trek series. Players can choose from four avatars – Lt. Uhura, a Vulcan officer, a human cadet and an Orion slavegirl. The Phone-A-Friend lifeline also features eight characters from this iconic science-fiction universe.
Based on the world’s most successful TV game show, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Editions retains all the excitement and atmosphere of the original program.
Contestants participate in the Fastest Finger First round and then scale a mountain of questions in the quest for that elusive virtual million, making judicious use of the three classic lifelines – Fifty-Fifty, Ask The Audience, and Phone-A-Friend. It’s a social experience, too: up to four friends can compete locally to outdo each other, with each person’s score dependent on their speed.
But the standout feature of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Editions is the introduction of special licensed question packs featuring the biggest names from movies, TV and much more. Star Trek: The Original Series – Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Edition can be purchased as an extension to the original Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Editions game.
The Star Trek: The Original Series – Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Edition will be released in February 2012 via PlayStation®Store and will be available throughout Europe and in Australia, New Zealand, Chile and Columbia via the Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for Xbox 360.

The series originally aired from September 1966 through June 1969.

Hosted by Commodore Bob Wesley?
what? release a game not on PC?
and not in the target area?
these developers are nuts.
@1.Totally Bob Wesley!!
But the bars on his sleeves are wrong, those are Captain’s bars.
Programmers, please fix the Commodore’s rank insignias before release or this game is the worst piece of non-canon crap since Kirk drove a car!
Haha. JK! but you know someone out there feels that way for real!
Whaaaa? Not released in North America!?
CBS has got to be nuts when they say they’re not going to release it in North America! Star Trek is an AMERICAN TV franchise and they’re not releasing this in North America? This has got to irritate some North American fans who want this add-on to this game. This game looks fun, but if it’s not released in North America as something to hold on to while we wait a year for the upcoming movie sequel and the video game, then why even bother to release this add-on to this game?!
I love the character designs here; they look like Clone Wars versions of Star Trek characters.
Save those wireframes for an new animated series!!
Looks like I may just become a Millionare!!!!
Commodore, i think the right term would be quatlooionaire!:)
Finally! I now know what I must do with my life — all else up to now is meaningless — and why I’ve been such a Star Trek geek.
Watch out, world! Nouveau riche coming through!
Ah, but one can dream….
I said it before. This is crap that it’s not coming out in the US.
“It will be available to fans worldwide except North America, Canada and Mexico.”
Huh, last I checked, Canada and Mexico were part of North America.
No surpirse this won’t be released here; the domestic market is dead & studios know it.
Traditionally, trivia games don’t sell all that well in North America compared to other markets, so I can understand why this wouldn’t be sold here.
guys I have asked if this will be coming to N. AMerica, maybe will have more news later
Well damn! Not gonna be released in North America? What the hell? That sucks gorn poo!
Awesome, but no PC version? Why am I NOT surprised?
Wait, where’s Regis Philbin? :-D
Um… this is stupid
The economics of the future are somewhat different.
But, a babe is a babe in any century.
For one time no release Star Trek product in NA, in Europe most Star Trek products buy from Ebay, don´t complain.
Sorry for the english.
Para una vez que algun producto de Star Trek no es dificil de conseguir en Europa, casi todo lo de Star Trek hay que consegirlo de importación
Is that Jeremy Paxman in the captain’s chair? I though it would be a quizmaster not the grand inquisitor.
It’s not coming to North America because the company producing/distributing the game doesn’t have the rights to the “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” franchise in North America.
Bwuhahahahahaa! “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire” is a British format, and we’re not letting you play the game there! This is payback for all those region-specific YouTube & Hulu clips we can’t watch! HA!!!
The only interest I have in this is the actual character art which would be a perfect translation into a new Star Trek animated series. Though, with the uncanny resemblence to Clone Wars, I’d suggest grabbing a phaser because Lucas and company would be out for blood.
No reason to get all upset over it not being released in North America, we’re getting the better of the Trek games this year. Just wait and see…
…wow. Looks like fun. Too bad I don’t live in outer Mongolia. No North American release?? Really?
Maybe Bob Wesley got demoted for his poor performance in the M5 scenario?
Commodore is the title of the senior captain amongst a group of captains, and not necessarily a rank.
That last picture of Uhura is awesome. More screen shots!!!
Gawd, don’t complain about NA not having a release. You can simply buy it online. What should you complain about is lack of PC version… You can’t just download Xbox360 emulator on your PC :/ I have PC because I am running smoothly games that are released for PS3, Xbox, AND PC, and sometimes they run even better than on these consoles. And now this :<
