CBS Interactive has launched an official Star Trek app for iPad, based on the classic TV franchise.

The Star Trek Padd app features a reproduction of the LCARS interface - the fictional computer operating system depicted in the show - plus information on all the episodes and images.

Developed in conjunction with CBS Mobile by app development studio, ArcTouch, the app aims to transport fans back through the 40-year history of the franchise. It will span from Star Trek: The Original Series right up to Star Trek: Enterprise.

The app also includes a recognisable computer voice, as well as familiar Star Trek-related sounds.

"The Star Trek Padd app lets die-hard fans and casual enthusiasts use the authentic LARS interface to access the extensive official Star Trek database, and easily connect with other Trekkers," said Rob Gelick, SVP and general manager, CBS Mobile. "We expect that the app will also introduce the show to a new generation of fans, leveraging 21st century technology to provide a glimpse into the 24th century."
