In a season five episode Star Trek: The Next Generation, the Enterprise crew falls under the spell of a dangerously addictive augmented reality game. That same game lies buried within mobile game Star Trek: Timelines, an easter egg so well-hidden only one player has uncovered it, and they don’t even know it yet.
On September 8, Star Trek turned 45 years old. Happy Birthday, Star Trek! Even though I hate you and your cheap-ass sets and lame vision of the future and hammy plots and silly aliens and...
It’s one of the most recognizable props in pop culture history, so it’s only fitting that the Smithsonian recently spent almost two years restoring the USS Enterprise model used in the original Star Trek TV series. The paint work alone was a painstaking process, as detailed in this new behind-the-scenes look at the…
CBS merely announced the name of the upcoming Star Trek TV series, and gave us the briefest glimpse of its titular ship, the Discovery. What could it possibly reveal about the show? Well, if you’re a Star Trek nerd like we are, it can tell you a lot—including when in the timeline the series might take place.
Behold the U.S.S. Discovery, designation NCC-1031. What’s really cool is that it’s based on concept art the legendary Ralph McQuarrie did for the first Trek motion picture. See it in action in the show’s first teaser!
Star Trek: Bridge Crew is a game about working together with friends to fly a starship. During E3, it was demonstrated by Jeri Ryan, Levar Burton and Karl Urban—aka members of multiple real-life (which is to say, still fictional) Star Trek crews.
While Ubisoft isn’t showing off the insides of the Star Trek bridge simulator it’s creating with developer Red Storm Entertainment until Monday, they do have a few details to go along with this picture of Geordi, Seven of Nine and New Bones freaking out with headsets on.
A construction toy take on the vinyl pop culture figure craze, Mega Bloks new Kubros sets are great, unless your kit is missing bricks.
Ever since HTC and Valve’s Vive VR headset was announced, people have been comparing it to Star Trek’s Holodeck. Now that Valve is letting people make their own Steam VR backgrounds—between-game hangouts, essentially—someone put two and two together.
Weaving Star Trek characters from all different eras and realities into one galaxy-spanning game is a wonderful thing. Wrapping that concept around a twisted mass of free-to-play mechanics and bugs is not.
The days of unique Star Trek simulators, based on The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine or Voyager are long over, but a superb model of the USS Enterprise from TNG, made by Jason B in Unreal Engine 4, shows how a Star Trek game like that would look today.
Back in 1994, I spent time — far, far too much time — trying to make the combat system in this game work for me; I loved Captain Picard, Commander Data, and Lieutenant Worf that much, but it’s so counterintuitive, so tedious, and so time-consuming, that it ruins the entire experience — even though it only makes up…
We’re ten years removed from the last time Star Trek was on TV, and, aside from free-floating rumors, we’re no closer to getting a new TV show.

Following the passing of Leonard Nimoy last week, space games like Star Trek Online, Elite: Dangerous, and Star Citizen all have heart-warming plans to memorialize the man who brought Spock to life.
Leonard Nimoy, the actor best known for playing Mr. Spock in the ubiquitous sci-fi series Star Trek, passed away today at the age of 83.
It's one thing to build a model of the U.S.S. Enterprise from Star Trek with LEGO bricks. It's another to build it so that none of those signature LEGO studs show. It took builder extrodinaire Chris Melby eight months and around 18,000 pieces to make this five foot-long masterpiece a reality.
Coming soon to a web browser near you, Star Trek: Alien Domain is a multiplayer strategy game that gives fans of the beloved science fiction franchise a chance to stop all of that boldly going and put down some roots.
