Mega update #3: Games

A couple of game updates:

TrekMovie have revealed the first of Wizkids’ Heroclix miniature games. Star Trek: Expeditions is based on the new movie and is described as follows:

Players take on the roles of Kirk, Spock, McCoy and Uhura responding to an invitation from the Nibian government to open discussions about the planet joining the United Federation of Planets. However, now that the Enterprise has arrived, you find the President of Nibia less happy to see you than the invitation suggested, and Mr. Spock has detected evidence that another starship may have recently been in orbit.

Lead your away teams made up of crew and resources from the Enterprise to solve the major story arcs plus key side missions before the Klingon Fleet arrives or the lone cloaked Klingon Battle cruiser in orbit destroys the Enterprise and her crew. Three difficulty levels, random side missions, player strategies and a unique branching mission tree ensure every game will be a unique memorable experience.


The game will be out this summer, and features six miniature models, including what I think must be the first model in any format of the new movie style Klingon battle cruiser.

In a completely different sort of game, Gameforge have revealed two ships from their forthcoming online game, Star Trek Infinite Space. Interactive 3D models of the Galaxy class and Klingon Bird of Prey can be seen (and played with) on their website. And look rather good!
