Before there was Star Trek: Bridge Crew, Ubisoft’s game about piloting the original Enterprise, there was Star Trek Stage-9, a fan project recreating the Enterprise-D from The Next Generation in Unreal Engine. This week the project is no more, following a cease and desist demand by CBS.
This week Star Trek: Bridge Crew got a big expansion called The Next Generation DLC. As a diehard TNG fan, I love it. The base game did a good job simulating the duties associated with serving on a starship in the Trek universe, and The Next Generation DLC adds a few improvements.
This week on Kotaku Splitscreen, I talked with composer Austin Wintory (Journey, Assassin’s Creed Syndicate) about what it was like auditioning to be the composer for Star Trek: Discovery, and why he’s glad he did it even though he didn’t get the gig.
Journey and Assassin’s Creed Syndicate composer Austin Wintory shared a really cool story about auditioning to write the music for Star Trek: Discovery. He didn’t get the gig, but he wrote a lot of great music along the way. It’s an interesting look behind the scenes at what it’s like to try to land a high-profile…
Quantum Mechanix is releasing a line of big fancy action figures based on Star Trek: The Next Generation, and the first one is Picard.
If you thought Paradox’s grand strategy game Stellaris sounded very Star Trekky with its big alien alliances and deep space exploration, you are not alone.
Some cosplayers just want to see the world burn.
Today on Highlight Reel we have helpful Rainbow 6 Siege players, WW1 Dukes of Hazzard, giant Fallout babies and much more!
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...
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.
Two of geek fiction’s most hot-headed spacefaring heroes will be boldly going into the blackest night this summer when James Kirk, Hal Jordan and their respective entourages cross paths this summer.
