The logo looks kinda nuTrek to me, but most of the previous Wizkids Trek stuff has been old school. Does anyone have any insight about this?

Star Trek: Expeditions is the Abrams Trek...

The mention of the "alliance" between the Federation and the Klingons leads me to believe it takes place during the Next Generation timeline...

They also mention the Borg as enemies which are definitely not part of the nuTrek world yet. The mention of a known wormhole really makes me hopeful for DS9 stuff. Especially since the Klingon federation alliance was a big part of that show as well.


My best guess is each captain or ship can be from a different era and plays out differently based on your ship

I really hope that they cover all possible eras. It would be awesome if we can captain the Enterprise-A, Enterprise-D, the Defiant, The Voyager...

I am hoping since they have fleet captains they will stick to that side of the stories. Please! As well as attack wing too. Please!

Love classic Trek and Abrahms Trek. It is possible. Excited for the game either way.

Would there even be enough material in the JJverse to fill out a game let alone a run of expansions.

I hoping for 'real' trek universe setting. I'll be bankrupt when a TOS expansion comes out. Must have fist fights and alien girls to kiss. Oh and ripped shirts.

The logo text is similar to both JJ and TOS style fonts.

Maybe they'll add some stuff from the animated series, like they did in ST Attack Wing.

Or a two player game and both could be Kahn.

Could be both the classic or new Kirk, but my money is on the new one. Remember, there's still a third movie coming out.

Let's hope that Picard will be arriving in an expansion...

I don't see why they can't cover every trek eventually with this game. The Star Trek universe is ripe with alternate realities, wacky timelines, etc... That said they will probably start with what they know will make money, so I would expect JJ's Trek first. My biggest fear is that they use movie and show stills instead of actual art.

Yeah. I hate when pictures are used from a movie or show in a game. Give me art!

Agreed.

To elaborate on my previous post: movie stills are always looking extremely cheap and lazy, like they took a screenshot while watching the DVD.

Every game that does that always looks like a fan-made prototype to me.

There is a very small grey area to this though: if well-staged photos are used like they are made for promotional material, it can theoretically work. But even then, it only works to some degree, meaning that the whole game should not look like a cheap sticker album.

I disagree for Star Trek. I really enjoy seeing the screen stills, its like reminiscing. Related to that, I really hope this guy ends up in the game.

Graphic design from WizKids is a thing to behold. I'm sure they will do their, um, best?

That looks better than the photos used in Fleet Captains but that isn't saying much.

CBS has access to HD images. They just need to dish them out to the designers.
