The number one rule in Star Trek fiction states that the Federation can't mess with the development of other planets. Looks to me like that whatever planet Kirk and Spock are on is freakin' crumbling. Surely, that counts as messing with development, right? Nevertheless, Starfleet's most famous officers are finally coming back to video games in an new action title developed by Digital Extremes. Each iconic character will have different abilities in the co-op adventure but you're not really seeing any of that here. Mostly what you'll see is running and jumping and shooting.

Digital Extremes has a mixed track record so far, having done the multiplayer portion of BioShock 2 and all of The Darkness 2. Still, I'm excited to get to play as everybody's human/Vulcan buddy system. You expect to beam aboard the Enterprise early next year when Namco Bandai releases next year.
