Here is the official synopsis:
After the U.S.S. Protostar picks up strange readings from a dying star, the transporter malfunctions and scatters the crew across the universe.

But watch the skies for the deadly new nemesis and their army of robots, who will stop at nothing to destroy the Protostar and change the entire course of history! And watch out for Hologram Janeway as she teaches Dal and Gwyn about the ways of the Federation.
Supernova is priced at $49.99 and is available at Amazon and other games retailers.
Star Trek: Resurgence delayed
Another highly-anticipated game is Star Trek: Resurgence, an interactive narrative adventure game for for PC, Playstation, and Xbox announced last December. The game was set to be released this year, but on Thursday the team at Dramatic Labs announced they moved the date to April 2023
Resurgence is the first title from the new game developer formed by a team of industry veterans, including twenty former Telltale developers that have worked on games such as The Walking Dead: The Telltale Series, The Wolf Among Us, Game of Thrones: The Telltale Series, and Batman: The Telltale Series. On Twitter, Dramatic Labs explained the detail was to “give the game a final coat of polish,” and born from their “love and admiration for Star Trek” to ensure they get it right.

Set in the Star Trek: The Next Generation era, in Resurgence you assume the role of two principal characters (First Officer Jara Rydek and Engineering Crewperson Carter Diaz) on board the USS Resolute. The narrative-based game has players unravel a “sinister mystery involving two alien civilizations on the brink of war.” The game promises to immerse players into the Star Trek universe and it includes some familiar faces, including Ambassador Spock.
Earlier this year Dramatic Labs shared some gameplay footage with IGN, which you can see below.
