Star Trek: Infinite Space has been cancelled
 
Yeah I hate to say I predicted this but after the crash last year it's not surprising at all to see it go.

What do you think about this?

Also I would like to point out that Infinate Space had more CBS Support than this game ever will. Blame Mr.Citter.

It was unofficially cancelled nearly a year ago when they stopped working on it. You're way behind the curve here. :)

Edit: Here's the announcement from last November when they put the Beta on hold: http://star-trek-infinite-space.brow...a-on-hold.html

I think you are posting about this on the wrong board, since this is not STO discussion.

I didn't even know it existed.

It's a pity because it offered an alternative to STO (also likely more Trek and less pew-pew)

I playtested it 5-6 times. It was a standard FTP browser game pretty-much built as a top-down shooter. The only really interesting aspect of it was that it was set in the traditional TNG era and that Mike Okuda did some design work on it.

Edit: There's some actual game-play footage on YouTube here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZcyxJRuBRZ4 which is quite a bit different then the "trailer" videos. :)

How do you figure? Almost all of the trailers featured overhead combat.

Wishful thinking on my part apparently with Okuda's involvement .... and less of a 'blender' of different era content we have in STO.

Oh well, there is always The Family Guy browser MMO

I also wanted to add that CBS has no more involvement with ST: IS then they had in STO - they sold a license and the vetted content. Gameforge simply hired Mike Okuda to do some of the basic design work so that they'd match with the TNG era material.

Say what you will about Cryptic, they are the only one to get a Star Trek game launched.
