Star Trek Game Will Bridge The Story Gap Between Star Trek And The Sequel
Itís starting to seem like the team behind Star Trek is at last getting to work in earnest on creating Star Trek: The Next. As part of that endeavor Star Trek writer Roberto Orci has been consulting on an upcoming Star Trek video game which will not only pick up where the last movie left off, but will bridge the gap between the Star Trek movie we saw in 2009 and the next one, whenever that finally gets done.
Talking to Game Pro Orci explains their plan this way:
So one of the reasons we were excited to participate in this game is that we wanted it to be very much something that can fit in between the two movies, something that was in a way Ė fans will tell you that it's only canon when itís on screen in a movie; and so fine, Alex [Kurtzman] and I, and Tim [Jones] and J.J [Abrams]. and Brian will acquiesce and say that itís not canon unless itís not on film. But we would like to think that the game and everything that we do in between to be as close to canon as you can get because itís actually being taken into consideration with where the movies are.As a fan, itís sort of strange to hear Orci so worried about continuity when their last movie was crafted almost entirely around the idea of free themselves from existing Trek cannon. But it sounds like theyíre determined to make it all fit together going forward, in creating a cannon of their own.
Check out the Star Trek gameís trailer:
The game, which is a co-op shooter, is set to hit store shelves next summer. That means youíll be able to get your hands on it long before the next Star Trek movie actually hits theaters, whenever that is. Sounds like this could be a good way for us Trekkies to get out fix, while we wait for Orci to give us what we really want.
