Star Trek Game to Bridge Gap Between Part 1 and 2 of Star Trek MoviePosted 12:06 pm on Tuesday, July 5th, 2011 by John 'Spartan' Nguyen
Roberto Orci, co-writer for J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek, talks about canon and says that the game will be considered part of J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek universe. He talks about how the game takes place between the first and second movie.
True fans will tell you that canon is only what’s filmed. I’m not an authority on what is canon. However, I will tell you that this may be the first game that falls within the parameters of the people who are in charge of canon for now; the “supreme court,” as we call ourselves… this is the first time where the game itself is generated by the people who are deciding canon and we generated the game to fit within canon.
The Star Trek game will offer players a chance to see Kirk and Spock becoming friends. The villains are a secret, but they will also be canon. Orci explained that he wanted the game to be as important as the movie.
I, for one, can’t wait for the game to come out, since the controls and graphics looks pretty good.
