As Gene Roddenberry’s sci-fi creation celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, Bethesda Softworks announced that it will assemble all five actors who portrayed captains on the various Star Trek series over the years for one game. William Shatner, Patrick Stewart, Scott Bakula, Avery Brooks and Kate Mulgrew will all lend their voices and likenesses to Star Trek: Legacy, a title launching this fall for Xbox 360 and PC under license from CBS Consumer Products.
“I am delighted to have the chance to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Trek with my fellow captains by providing our voices to Star Trek: Legacy,” says Shatner. “Bethesda Softworks has done an excellent job in creating an exciting game that stays true to Star Trek‘s roots and accurately incorporates elements from each series.”
Star Trek: Legacy includes elements form the original 1966 series, as well as Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Enterpris. The game will offer players the chance to be the Admiral of a task force of warships engaged in small- and large-scale battles. With single-player and multi-player modes, the title will test strategic and tactical skills in real-time combat featuring more than 60 authentic spaceships, full damage modeling and elaborate visual effects.
The game is being developed under the direction of Bethesda Softworks at the studios of Mad Doc Software, creators of the highly successful and critically acclaimed Star Trek Armada II. For more information on Star Trek: Legacy, go to http://startrek.bethsoft.com.
