Fuller: Trek TV Gossip Rated 'Pants On Fire'

Set before TNG? Nope. Anthology? Nope

Bryan Fuller won't share too many details of the new Star Trek series, reportedly saving them for San Diego Comic-Con next month. But what he can say is all that gossip originating from a blog with unverified and uncorroborated information? Totally not true. Fuller, the former "Star Trek: Voyager" writer who will serve as showrunner for the CBS All Access series, says reports that circulated over the spring that set his show after "Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country" and before "Star Trek: The Next Generation" is false. Also false? The fact that the new series would be an ...

Trek's Prime Universe 'Closed For Business'?

Latest rumor suggests new series will take place in AbramsVerse

There might have been a little bit of truth to some of the gossip last month about the new Star Trek series planned for CBS All Access. A source tells 1701News that the series, set to debut in January on the subscription streaming service, could be a prequel of sorts, taking place after Capt. Kirk and his voyages of the USS Enterprise. With one catch — it won't be in the prime universe of Star Trek pre-2009, but instead set in the new universe brought to us by J.J. Abrams. "There is apparently a contingent within CBS that views the prime universe closed for business," said ...

Trek Online Players Confused About Ferengi Ship Offer

Game developer won't reveal criteria on how gold-plated ship is awarded

The email touted a "glorious ship, just for you." It offered a gold-plated Ferengi Nagus Marauder ship that was "sure to stand out on your missions throughout the final frontier." The ship isn't real, of course. Instead, it's a perk in the massively multiplayer online game Star Trek Online, and was sent out to select subscribers in the game. And we mean very select — so pin-pointed, the company behind the game won't reveal what criteria they used to award the in-game object. "The gold-plated (Tier 6) Ferengi ship was sent out to a select group of players as part of an email ...

Trek Online Confirms AbramsVerse Crossover

New content will recognize new movies, creating an 'alternate' timeline

If you grew up looking for plastic Easter eggs on the holiday, you always hoped you found ones filled with candy, and not empty ones. Finding Easter eggs in games like Star Trek Online can be equally problematic — there's a non-player character in the massively multiplayer online roleplaying game wearing a uniform from the current movie universe. Does it mean something? Looks like we now have the answer — and this is an Easter egg filled with candy. Arc Games ...

Star Trek Online PS4 Players Must Start Fresh

Producer confirms MMOers won't be able to cross-play

Sorry gamers! If you were looking to continue a Star Trek Online mission from your personal computer to your PlayStation 4, you'll have to think again. Steve Ricossa, the executive producer of the massively multiplayer online game, shared the bad news with gamers soon after his company announced Star Trek Online would be made available for Xbox One and PS4 consoles this fall. One of the biggest questions coming from that announcement was whether "cross-play" would be possible ...

Is Star Trek Online Planning An AbramsVerse Crossover?

A new uniform, claimed leaked screencaps from game, say yes

Star Trek Online may be preparing to do something not even the CBS or Paramount side of Star Trek have done before — cross universe streams. Eliot Lefebve at Massively Overpowered has pointed out a non-player character who has popped up in the online game. And while he's not key to anything going on in the story, one thing that caught Lefebve's eye is not what he says (or lacks saying), but instead what he's wearing. "The tunic is not a single piece, but rather a black undershirt with a colored overshirt," Lefebve said. ...

Star Trek Online Goes Back In Time For 50th

Popular MMO will take fans into the realm of classic Trek

Time travel might not happen on Star Trek as much as it does on, say, "Doctor Who." But it's still a popular activity and story device. Star Trek Online, the massively multiplayer online game from Arc Games, has utilized time travel in several of its episode storylines. But just in time for the 50th anniversary of Star Trek, the game will really give players a chance to jump back into classic "Star Trek." As part of the third expansion of "Agents of Yesterday," players can jump back into the days of Kirk, Spock and McCoy to take command of a 23rd century era starship, much ...
