That job listing was correct. City of Heroes developer Cryptic Studios is working on a Star Trek MMO, and its got the screenshots to prove it. Dubbed Star Trek Online, the game will be based on the Star Trek franchise. Says Cryptic chief creative officer Jack Emmert:

Star Trek was never about a single character, ship or even planet; Star Trek was always about an entire universe. And MMORPGs are uniquely suited to create such a thing and allow players to explore every inch.

First gameplay footage as well as more details about the game will be unveiled at the annual Star Trek convention in Las Vegas on Sunday, August 10th. Those unable to attend can check out the live webcast at the game's homepage.

DISCUSSION

I agree with Jack Emmert, if they do it right this has more portential to work out nicely than a MMO based on a comic universe or one based on Star Wars. In those things the story is always based around a core cast of very important persons (the super heros/villains/the jedi/the leaders of the dark side) so its difficult to do a mmo cause everyone wants to be or work with one of those few important and known guys which yeah, can´t work out. In Star Trek they have so many different crews on different ships/stations/worlds know to the masses that i imagine one could way easier position the player in one of the many sub plot areas and still make him feel important.

Hope they don´t screw it up.
