L'annonce officielle de Star Trek Online, dont , vient de tomber avec de nouveaux détails.

Tout d'abord, le développeur, Perpetual Entertainment est formé de "vétérans de l'industrie des jeux vidéo" dont on n'a pas un seul nom, mais on les croit, parce que dans Star Trek, seuls les Ferengis mentent.

Ensuite et surtout, les licences utilisées seront ... et bien, toutes celles des séries TV, en fait (cela signigie Star Trek: The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager et Enterprise). Etant donné que les différences d'époque entre toutes ces séries varie de 10 à 200 ans dans la chronologie de l'univer Star Trek, on se demande comment les développeurs vont faire pour nous faire croiser à la fois Archer, Kirk, Picard et Sisko, si ce n'est d'un tour de magie temporelle comme c'est la coutume dans les séries ("Commander, I'm detecting an temporal anomaly", "Set a heading to the anomaly Lieutenant!", enfin vous connaissez). L'époque "normale" du jeu sera cependant le 24ème siècle.

Enfin, on apprend également que le jeu se déroulera autant sur des planètes, des vaisseaux et des stations spatiales. Il sera possible de posséder des vaisseaux (opérés par des membres de votre guilde) et de combattre dans l'espace ... à la sortie de la space extension ? Hin hin...

Pour plus d'informations, une page de FAQ a été mise en ligne sur le site officiel.

San Francisco, CA -- September 7, 2004 --


Perpetual Entertainment, Inc. announced today that it has secured the exclusive worldwide rights from Viacom Consumer Products to develop and publish a massively multiplayer online game based on Paramount Pictures' Star Trek franchise.

Star Trek is one of the world's most popular, longest-running, and beloved sci-fi properties, with millions of passionately devoted fans throughout the world. As Star Trek celebrates its 38th anniversary, Star Trek gaming begins its next evolution.

The license encompasses all live-action motion pictures and television series including, Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise. “The scope of the content license is extraordinary for a game of this kind, giving us the opportunity to immerse fans and players in the incredibly rich, diverse and exciting universe of Star Trek,” said Joe Keene, CEO of Perpetual Entertainment.

The game will deliver action, adventure and combat mechanics unique to persistent world games. Its design includes a rich array of solo and multiplayer missions set in space, on planets and in starbases throughout the universe. At launch, it will take place during the 24th century timeline in the series with other aspects of the Star Trek universe to be interwoven and added through expansions.

“Players will encounter characters, places, and situations from their favorite Star Trek movies and television series; will explore incredible new worlds; and will cooperate with or battle friendly and hostile races throughout the game,” said Chris McKibbin, President of Perpetual Entertainment.
