A new browser-based Star Trek strategy game (which was teased back in June) has now been officially announced. "Star Trek: Alien Domain" is set to take players to Fluidic Space, get more details below, along with a production diary video from the “Star Trek Timelines” game.
‘Alien Domain’ Game Announcement
A new browser-based multiplayer tactical strategy game, "Star Trek: Alien Domain," was announced this week by GameSamba, developed in conjunction with NGames and CBS Interactive. "Star Trek: Alien Domain" takes places in Fluidic Space, home of Species 8472, first seen in Star Trek: Voyager, and will task players with resource control, colony establishment, and research management. PvP encounters, such as raids against other player-controlled outposts, one-on-one skirmishes, and large-scale guild battles were also announced.
“Alien Domain will unfold after the most chronologically recent Star Trek canon and thus will feature a new Star Trek story,” states the press release. “Players [will be] able to use a variety of starships and technologies native to their chosen faction. “Players will even be able to craft and pilot unprecedented super-starships created through emerging technologies.”
Confirmed starships include Defiant-class and Constitution-class for the Federation players, and D7 battle cruisers and Birds-of-Prey for Klingon players.
“Forming a diverse starship fleet will be essential for exploring the deep reaches of Fluidic Space and quelling its threats, as well as for defending against rival colonies and players, not to mention dealing with new and old Star Trek species,” continues the press release.
No date for release was provided, but GameSamba promises more info "will be revealed in the coming months" so it looks like this is a 2015 release. For more info visit the official website (still under construction). You can also follow the game on Twitter and Facebook.
