Star Trek Fleet Command bringing together the Kelvin and Prime Universes
Today, Scopely and ViacomCBS Consumer Products announced a partnership that gathers every Star Trek timeline under one experience in the award-winning mobile game Star Trek Fleet Command.
Launched in 2018, Fleet Command exclusively featured the Kelvin Timeline and characters from the 2009, 2013, and 2016 cinematic Star Trek Universe. Starting in September, the game is infusing new content from the Prime Timeline, including the original Star Trek, Star Trek: The Next Generation-era shows, Star Trek: Enterprise, as well as the new CBS All Access series Star Trek: Discovery and Star Trek: Picard. Fleet Command will be the only mobile game to feature the complete Star Trek Universe.
“With over 50 years of content to draw from, this expanded partnership with ViacomCBS Consumer Products marks the first time all of these iconic Star Trek stories, characters, and universes will find a home in one immersive experience,” said Steve Huff, Senior Vice President of Product at Scopely. “We’re honored to be deepening our collaboration with ViacomCBS Consumer Products and contributing to the legacy of Star Trek through our shared mission of delivering an exceptional experience to fans all over the world, for many years to come.”
In Fleet Command, players are the commanders of their own destiny: From crew selection to the missions they take on and the alliances they form, choices made in-game will impact how storylines intersect as new content begins to roll out over the coming months.
“Star Trek is a multi-generational franchise that continues to generate new iterations to meet the needs of its ever-growing loyal and passionate fan base,” said Pam Kaufman, President, Global Consumer Products, ViacomCBS. “With this first-of-its-kind partnership, we are able to harness the combined power of the beloved brand to give gamers a unique opportunity to create their own new adventures utilizing an exciting title from an exceptional partner like Scopely.”
In its first two years, Star Trek Fleet Command has proven to be very popular. According to Scopely, active players are spending multiple hours in-game each day, and 75% of players are playing seven days per week. The game consistently places in the top rankings for its genre, most recently landing the #1 spot in AppAnnie’s ranking of the most engaging strategy and RPG titles by US-based publishers. More than 5.8 billion battles have been played to date, with a 20% increase in battles played in the last year.
In 2019, Scopely recruited Star Trek Into Darkness actress Alice Eve (Carol Marcus) to promote the game, as you can see from one of her Fleet Command videos below.
