German online game company Gameforge signed a worldwide licensing agreement with CBS Consumer Products to develop and publish browser-based, free-to-play games based on classic science fiction franchise Star Trek.
The company has so far planned two Star Trek titles, a Facebook game developed by an external German studio, and a browser-based release from another external developer in California.
The important part!!!
The browser-based titles -- one based on the classic Star Trek series, and the other on Deep Space Nine -- will complement if not compete against another game based on the property: Cryptic Studios and Atari's subscription-based MMORPG Star Trek Online, which released for PCs last February and requires users to buy and download/install before playing.
If you have ever played Farmville or Mafia Wars then the obvious answer is no. These games tend to have a lower ability quotent then most other games. I think of them not much above a game like Checkers. While there is some LIMITED interaction with friends you may have or recruit to these games, they are far from MMO's.
