Star Trek Timelines, a strategy role-playing game game from developer Disruptor Beam, is in development and headed to mobile devices and the web at an unannounced date, the developer revealed today.
The game will be set in the entire Star Trek universe as players take command of a starship, build their own crews and explore the galaxy. Star Trek Timelines will include content from The Original Series, The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, Voyager and Enterprise. Characters set to appear in the game include Data, Kirk, Picard and Spock.
“We want to create a new generation of strategy game for tablet and mobile devices and one that is as large and deep as the Star Trek universe itself,” said Jon Radoff, CEO of Disruptor Beam. “I grew up watching the franchise and have always felt that the best episodes were those that went beyond the coolness of the technology or vastness of space; the ones which told the story of characters making important decisions that had an impact on others, on civilizations, planets, and technology. Star Trek Timelines will encompass all of these concepts, allowing you to explore the vastness of space along with your friends — letting you live out the ‘where no man has gone before’ mantra we all love — but will also allow you to make decisions that impact your future, your friends and even the fate of the galaxy.”
