Yep, it doesn't sound bad. I'll keep an eye on this one. Good Star Trek games are rare.

It is going to be a absolute must for obvious reasons.

There's still life for Star Trek,the franchise just needs the right people to resurrect it.Just look at how Lucas killed Star Wars :)

Whatever happened to "Thou shalt not break the time travel rule"? Time travel never ends well for the people who have to endure the convoluted plots involving it.

and a interview (http://www.gameradio.de/artikel.php?right=int_startrek_legacy&news_id=437) (in english)

How would you describe the gameplay of Star Trek Legacy? Is it more action or more strategy?

Legacy is a hybrid game. It contains elements of a squad shooter, RTS, action, and a little RPG fun thrown in there. What’s great about Legacy is that it has something for everyone. When you’re coordinating an assault on a starbase, you may be saying to yourself: “Hey, this is a whole lot like a Squad-Shooter!“; whereas when you’re managing your fleet between missions, you’ll feel like you’re playing a little bit of an RPG. When you’re in battle, the action will not disappoint.

Looks nice. I might have to try this when it comes out. See if it's graphics can beat X3. :)

Indeed it does and it will be interesting to see how the whole generation mix will turn out. I'll keep an eye on this one.

I've always wanted a ST game that allows you to build a ship and build it up, sell it, battle with it, upgrade it... hopefully this will be the one. There were a few like Orion Pirates, but there were too many bad things about the game to make it enjoyable for me

Orion Pirates Sucked


Did you ever play the ORIGINAL Star Trek: Starfleet Command, or Starfleet Command 2 Empires at War...

God the Metaverse was so revolutionary.... they need to implement variations of it in other games......


Because.... from what you said you wanted in a Star Trek Game... thats EXACTLY what Starfleet COmmand 1 and 2 were.....

Ya I played those, I actually liked Orion Pirates better. Although they were similar to what I wanted, it just wasn't good enough to fill that void. The ship movement wasn't as free as I wanted it to be, weapons weren't as cool as you see on TV, controlling fleets was practically impossible, fighting multiple enemies at once while targeting key systems and transfering shield strength from other systems... it just wasn't possible to get what I wanted out of a true starship based game

Honestly, the #1 reason why I watched Star Trek (and I only truly enjoyed Voyager) was because of Starship fights and such. If a game can capture that (Star Trek Armada 1 and 2 were the best RTS for that- I actually won first place in Gamespy sponsored tournaments for it, and became a clan leader... god my life was awesome back then) my vision of Star Trek, then I think this upcomming game has a chance

Btw, I WANT AN INTREPID. If this game lets me have that, I will love it no matter how much the ship sucks

Nice revival. :)

I doubt it will live up to expectations, with trekkies it always seems like there is something to complain about (well I guess that's the case for every game, huh?)

Although I find it interesting that Captain Sisko's actor (forgot his name), is doing some voice overs. I guess this is a first as he tried to distance himself from DS9 to become a more well rounded actor. Funny thing is he didn't do any work at all really till 2005 after DS9.

Bridge Commander was great and this looks like it could be even better..but I'll wait for some reviews or a demo before I think about buying this one.
