Star Trek Announced

Paramount Digital Entertainment announces Star Trek, a co-op action/adventure from Digital Extremes based on J.J. Abrams' Star Trek reboot movie. The game is due in summer 2012 for Windows, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, and the announcement includes this screenshot showing Kirk and Spock, as word is "the game casts players as Kirk and Spock for the first time ever." We'll learn more next week as the game is shown off at E3, and in the meantime here's word:

The game, which continues the adventure that director and producer J.J. Abrams envisioned with Star Trek (2009), boasts a stand alone story filled with action-packed combat as Kirk and Spock must work together to stop a legendary enemy race bent on conquering the galaxy.

“Star Trek challenges the boundaries of co-op gameplay with a galactic adventure that gamers and fans have never experienced,” said Tom Lesinski, President of Paramount Digital Entertainment. “Working closely with the Star Trek filmmaking team throughout development, the game is sure to deliver AAA production values, a wide variety of gameplay and all the action you would expect from the hit franchise. This will be the definitive Star Trek gaming experience.”

"hey, we've got a transporter that can whisk you half a galaxy away onto a moving ship with shields up".

That's the one bit that got me. Totally breaks Trek in every way possible. Want to destroy another ship? Transport a photon torp onto it. Transport landing troops to a planet if you want to invade. Ships (the major plot element in every Star Trek outside of DS9) are practically rendered obsolete, just invest in planetary transporter facilities. Sure there's inconsistencies and crap in Star Trek, but this was over the top, lazy science fiction.
