Disruptor Beam to launch new Star Trek game

Star Trek: Timelines will allow fans to build their own starship and play alongside Captain Kirk, Spock, Captain Picard and more.

CBS Consumer Products has partnered with Disruptor Beam for a new Star Trek strategy role playing game.

Star Trek: Timelines is a story driven social game in which fans will be able to build their own starship and crew, as well as explore the world of Star Trek.

The game – scheduled for release across mobile and web platforms – will also feature favourite characters from across all eras of the franchise.

Jon Radoff, CEO of Disruptor Beam, said: “We want to create a new generation of strategy game for tablet and mobile devices and one that is as large and deep as the Star Trek universe itself.

“I grew up watching the franchise and have always felt that the best episodes were those that went beyond the coolness of the technology or vastness of space; the ones which told the story of characters making important decisions that had an impact on others, on civilisations, planets and technology.

“Star Trek: Timelines will encompass all of these concepts, allowing you to explore the vastness of space along with your friends, letting you live out the ‘where no man has gone before’ mantra we all love.”

Players will be able to explore the multiverse alongside their own friends and the in game characters of Captain Kirk, Spock, Captain Picard, Data and many more.

Further details about Star Trek Timelines will be released in the coming months.
