Star Trek Deep Space Nine MMOG Announced

Gameforge announces Star Trek – Infinite Space, a free-to-play casual MMOG based on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. The game will be playable in a browser, and they expect it to launch next summer. There's no detail on the game at this point, though they do tout the bona fides of its developers: "Gameforge tapped keen games to develop the title in conjunction with expert Star Trek consultants Denise and Michael Okuda. Based out of Frankfurt, Germany, keen games is one of the country’s most established game developers with more than 17 years of experience working with numerous publishers in the industry."

I am huge fan of DS9, the best thing that could have happened after TNG, but I can't imagine the DS9 storyline being a good basis to make a MMOG. Basically there isn't much open ended which could be explored.

So it would have to be something totally new, that's a huge risk. I will give it a try though.

Still I would rather see a FPS/Adventure like game like the Voyager series, which I think we're pretty good and polished for that time. But then I guess it would turn out to be a console port, so the corridors of DS9 would now suddenly have lot's of obstacles to crouch behind

My biggest complaint however is that the current franchise is lacking direction, alternate time lines/realities, pff. Just get some excellent quality writers and actors (preferably stage actors) which have a passion for Star Trek and a new series will breathe the life back in the franchise.
