More plot details are known about the upcoming Star Trek The Video Game than the new film Star Trek Into Darkness, and we've just gotten a few more details about the game's story.
As the game begins, Kirk and Spock are called to aid in the rescue of a mysterious space station that is heading towards catastrophe. Upon their arrival, Kirk and Spock meet a female Vulcan scientist named T’Mar, who plays a prominent role in the action-packed journey that awaits.
“T’Mar is the captain of the space station and was a childhood friend of Spock,” says Paramount Senior Vice President and Executive Producer Brian Miller. “Her blend of incredible intelligence and unexpected beauty prove intriguing to Kirk.”
As the story progresses, T’Mar joins Kirk and Spock as they travel to New Vulcan, a planet that orbits a binary star and was colonized by Vulcans after the destruction of their home world, seen in 2009’s Star Trek. There, they find Surok – a great Vulcan leader.
“When we crafted this story we wanted to make sure the player realizes that the usually logical, Spock can have very emotional connections to the ones he cares about," adds Miller. "Surok was one of Spock’s childhood mentors and is also T’Mar’s father. Together, they are helping to lead the colonization of New Vulcan.”
As they continue, players will learn that Surok is one of the lone survivors of a vicious attack on the New Vulcan planet by the villainous Gorn. Why they have attacked and what they want are at the heart of Star Trek The Video Game.
Developed by NAMCO Bandai Games, Star Trek The Video Game will be released on April 23, 2013 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
