Infinite in October

Paradox Interactive and Nimble Giant Entertainment just announced their upcoming grand strategy game Star Trek: Infinite will launch on Mac and PC on October 12, 2023. The game promises to take players “on an interstellar saga with its emergent gameplay and complex choices, as they face the powers of the Alpha and Beta Quadrants.”

Here is the official description:

Beginning decades before the Star Trek: The Next Generation era, Star Trek: Infinite grants players the power to shape the galaxy’s destiny as a faction of their choice. The immersive grand strategy game puts players in the captain’s chair to lead one of four unique Quadrant Powers: The United Federation of Planets, Romulan Star Empire, Cardassian Union, or Klingon Empire. While remaining faithful to Star Trek lore, Star Trek: Infinite introduces fresh avenues for adventure as players can explore the Alpha and Beta quadrants, govern empire dynamics, handle economic intricacies, and engage with undiscovered civilizations.

Players can now pre-order either the base game or Digital Deluxe Edition, granting them access to bonuses like skins, ships, and special voiceover. Here is the pre-order trailer…

Players who pre-order Star Trek: Infinite will receive the following bonuses:

  • Star Trek: Lower Decks uniform options
  • The U.S.S. Cerritos, a science ship with special options for minor nations (Second Contact)
  • A Klingon advisor voice line, “Qapla”

The Digital Deluxe Edition (DDE) of the game includes a digital artbook, the game soundtrack, and an in-game music pack featuring iconic compositions from across Star Trek’s illustrious legacy.

You can pre-order now on Steam. The standard edition is $29.99 and the deluxe edition is $39.99.

And in case you missed it, here is the gameplay trailer released in the summer

It seems the relase date is only for Windows, not for the Mac version that was also advertised

So … this gives the impression of basically being Stellaris with a Trek skin? Which I’m 100% okay with.

That is basically my read as well/

And I’m also just fine with what amounts to a Trek mod for Stellaris.

Beginning decades before Star Trek: The Next Generation era…… proceeds to show Galaxy class and Intrepid class starships? Did I miss something?

A few decades in a grand strategy game isn’t really that big of a deal, and gathering from some of the previews the likely intent here is to get a bit of a runway before the TNG era so that even if every game does start the same (as you’re dealing with a set playfield every time, and not a randomly generated one as in Stellaris), the sessions will start diverging after a few hours/in-game years.

Also, those designs are iconic and thus easier to sell, probably. We’ll see once it comes out, though an official Trek-flavoured Stellaris does sound pretty good to me.

I’m going to guess that you start further back and segue into TNG tech.


Yes it begins before that era and progresses through that so you would see those ships.

What’s so hard to understand?


Is the music dlc only music or is IT more/different music in Game?
