E3 2011: STAR TREK Demo Preview

Star Trek has garnered a ravenous fan base for over 50 years. This has been further enhanced with the success of the 2008 movie reboot. Now, with a theatrical sequel on the horizon it seems obvious to forge a video game tie in. Digital Extremes' Star Trek fits sometime between the events of the first and second movie and the developers have been working closely with Bad Robot to make every aspect authentic. Production blueprints from the movies have been used to recreate all of the intricate details of the Enterprise and Star Fleet gear. Some creative liberties were taken with the new unnamed enemy designs, but they still blend well with the Trek universe. The live demo we saw brought us into a dangerous scenario that may or may not be part of the story's cannon.
