Star Trek; The Game will you get it?
Here's a trailer of the new Star Trek game, coming out in April. Looks ok, but is it something you will get?

Squad based shooter from a developer with a reputation for short mediocre shooters. Probably a rent, unless the multiplayer is somehow revolutionary.

Im getting it because it is star trek. Also, it adds to the new line of trek that will be canon to my kids when they are my age like TOS , TNG, and the others are to me. And I like to think we are seeing the evolution of Star Trek. I bet it will lead to another t.v. show.

Probably, even though I didn't like the direction JJ's movie went it's still Trek. If we abandon Trek unless it's absolutely true to the real canon then the whole saga could die. We have to support it but at the same time redirect those that are making it and going away from the core values and beliefs of Gene and his loyal followers. It's a never ending process if you wish to see Trek around in another 50 years.

I feel you, what i am afraid of the most is that since JJ is doing Star Trek and Star Wars they will end up in the same category, a mindless action flick. So I am worried for both. Even though it is known JJ is a bigger fan of Star Wars. He may end up devoting efforts to keeping certain traditions in that alive compared to what he did will Star Trek.

Nah. Honestly it looks like a really crappy, scripted, linear 3rd person shooter with Star Trek slapped on it. Watch a "Let's Play" on Youtube if you're desperate for the story filler.

"I'm Commander Sheppard and this is my favorite DLC for Mass Effe...."
"Sheppard, I regret to inform you that this isn't Mass Effect related"

Seriously though, Generic 3rd person shoot em up set in space with star trek slapped on it, that's all I'm getting from this, I'll be passing on this one or doing what Hypl suggested

I wouldn't be surprised if JJ decides to combine Star Trek and Star Wars into one franchise. Having the same director for both franchises is just asking for trouble. We might see the Borg in Star Wars and the Force and lightsabers in Star Trek.

Directors don't have that kind of power. Disney would have to buy Paramount at least and probably both Paramount and CBS to do that, and the combined pricetag exceeds Disney's buying power (and neither of the other two can afford to buy Disney alone, mostly eliminating the reverse scenario happening).

I'm considering it. If the co-op is REALLY good, that will probably seal the deal for me (unless of course the rest of it sucks...)
