Namco Bandai Games and Paramount Pictures have released a new trailer at Gamescon 2012 for the upcoming Star Trek game. Fans of the franchise and video-gaming have reason to be cautiously optimistic! Since the birth of​ Star Trek: the Original Series​ in 1963 there hasn’t been a lot in the way of good video games for the franchise. This new game will take place in the new “Abrams-verse” canon, taking place in between the 2009 film and movie coming out next summer. God of War writer Marianne Krawczyk is working alongside the team behind the 2009 film: Bob Orci, Alex Kurtzman and Damon Lindelof to tell this story which will feature ​Original Series​ species, the Gorn as the primary villain for this game.
