Following a spate of rumors (story), a press release on Star Trek Online Universe confirms that a Star Trek MMORPG is in the works, planned for release in early 2007. In addition to first dibs on the press release, they also have posted a preliminary FAQ for the project. Here's a bit from the announcement:
SAN FRANCISCO — Sept. 7, 2004 Perpetual Entertainment, Inc. announced today that it has secured the exclusive worldwide rights from Viacom Consumer Products to develop and publish a massively multiplayer online game based on Paramount Pictures' Star Trek franchise.

The license encompasses all live-action motion pictures and television series including, Star Trek , Star Trek: The Next Generation , Star Trek: Deep Space Nine , Star Trek: Voyager , and Star Trek: Enterprise . "The scope of the content license is extraordinary for a game of this kind, giving us the opportunity to immerse fans and players in the incredibly rich, diverse and exciting universe of Star Trek ,? said Joe Keene, CEO of Perpetual Entertainment.

The game will deliver action, adventure and combat mechanics unique to persistent world games. Its design includes a rich array of solo and multiplayer missions set in space, on planets and in starbases throughout the universe. At launch, it will take place during the 24th century timeline in the series with other aspects of the Star Trek universe to be interwoven and added through expansions.

I dont see how they are going to make that game possible.. unless everyone is going to get their own ship like Earth and Beyond...

Its either that or you work your way up in ranks by doing missions on a star ship or some wierd crap.

As Spock would say.. Thats Highly Illogical
