New strategy roleplaying game - STAR TREK TIMELINES

April 8, 2014 (Boston, MA) – Disruptor Beam, the company that brings together fan communities and games, has announced today its plans to produce a new Star Trek strategy roleplaying game (SRPG). Under license by CBS Consumer Products, Star Trek Timelines is a story-driven social game in which millions of fans will build their ultimate starship and crew, while exploring the vast Star Trek multiverse along with their favorite characters from across all eras. Currently in development, Star Trek Timelines will be released across mobile and web platforms in the future. To stay up-to-date on the game’s development, fans can join the Star Trek Timelines Facebook fan page here https://www.facebook.com/startrektimelines or visit www.DisruptorBeam.com.

“We want to create a new generation of strategy game for tablet and mobile devices and one that is as large and deep as the Star Trek universe itself,” said Jon Radoff, CEO of Disruptor Beam. “I grew up watching the franchise and have always felt that the best episodes were those that went beyond the coolness of the technology or vastness of space; the ones which told the story of characters making important decisions that had an impact on others, on civilizations, planets, and technology. Star Trek Timelines will encompass all of these concepts, allowing you to explore the vastness of space along with your friends—letting you live out the ‘where no man has gone before’ mantra we all love—but will also allow you to make decisions that impact your future, your friends and even the fate of the Galaxy.”

Star Trek Timelines will immerse players through a story-driven journey across the vast Star Trek multiverse including content and characters from Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise. Players will explore the Galaxy alongside their friends, build their dream crew and go on missions with Captain Kirk, Spock, Captain Picard, Data, and many other beloved (and some infamous) characters. Throughout their journey, players will explore numerous galaxies, planets and distant lands, while interacting with a plethora of technologies, cultures and races. Players will resolve problems through combat, diplomacy and science while building their own resources and creating the ultimate starship! The game will feature all original artwork and 3D graphics throughout.

Disruptor Beam has built a name for itself as a developer which has mastered the strategy roleplaying game genre for mobile and web platforms. The company’s hit Game of Thrones Ascent was first released in spring of 2013 to critical acclaim and the game’s fanbase continues to grow with over 3 million players. Disruptor Beam will exhibit at the upcoming Penny Arcade Expo East (PAX East) in Boston April 11th – 13th.

Additional details about Star Trek Timelines will be announced in the coming months. Stay tuned to www.DisruptorBeam.com for more details.

Interesting, but I'd really like to know more before I decide anything. Used to do PBEM RPGs quite a bit. Too bad they're dead.

Glad they at least acknowledge ST as a 'multiverse' and not a universe... ;)

First, thank you to Gustavo for creating this thread! I'm Khatie, the Community Director at Disruptor Beam (the team making Star Trek Timelines) and we'll be revealing more about the game leading up to our beta testing and launch, later this year.

In the meantime, here's a first look at gameplay which we showed this year at PAX East:

Note that this is only a small part of the game and that we've already made changes to how some of this works but it will at least give you an idea of the direction we're going.

You can register here for our Bridge Crew for a chance to be in Beta:
