Star Trek: Conquest boldly going for much cheaper than what it was going for before

Star Trek: Conquest didn't fare too well in our last metareview, partly due to its lack of options, and partly because its retail price of $30 is double that of the near-identical PS2 version. There isn't anything short of a time-travel episode that can be done about that first complaint considering...

Metareview: Star Trek: Conquest

We were excited when we heard that Bethesda was bringing Star Trek: Conquest to the Wii, even more so when the strategy/shooter's $30 budget pricing was revealed ($15 for the PS2 version). So, now that it's out, is it worth its weight in gold-pressed latinum? Well, no. IGN -- 68%: Though Star Tre...

Star Trek MMO going 'more casual'

There was some crazy financial news recently for Perpetual, the publisher of long-in-development Star Trek Onine. The practical upshot is that the company is in new hands, and, according to Shacknews' source, they're taking the game in a new, more casual direction. That doesn't necessarily mean yo...

Make your own Blu-ray phaser

For the cost of one replica Star Trek phaser and one PlayStation 3, you can have your own blue-beamed version of Captain Kirk's weapon of choice. It's a steep price, to be sure, but think of how impressed the ladies at the Sci-Fi Expo would be with this sexy piece of machinery in hand. What would S...

Beam down for fun this holiday with Star Trek: Conquest

Although GameFly listed the game a few days back, the lack of Star Trek: Conquest on Bethesda's special section of their website reserved for such things had us thinking such a title was some sick kind of joke and the Wii would be left without Star Trek goodness. Turns out, all we needed was a bit...

Star Trek: Conquest beaming onto Wii and PS2 this holiday

Listen up, Trekkies. Ever since its first public unveiling, we know you've been dreaming of using the Wiimote as a phaser (set to stun, we hope) in a Star Trek video game. We know, some of those other nerds keep going on and on about lightsabers this and Dark Sith Lord that ... but we both know wh...

Wii: the final frontier

Something is strange about the Gamefly listing for the possibly-upcoming Star Trek Conquest. There's no mention of a Conquest on (apparent) publisher Bethesda's home page, nor on their Star Trek page. But Gamefly already has a pretty official-looking boxart there. How do they get these things so ear...

Star Trek: Legacy goes the wrong way

Reviews for Star Trek: Legacy are all over the map. They range from 40 to 91 on Metacritic and the game averages 67% on Game Rankings. Bad reviews focus on difficult controls and repetitive gameplay, while good reviews mention the epic battles and storyline. Naturally, Star Trek fans will probably ...

Star Trek Legacy rewards the red shirts

It's a rule in Star Trek, if you see a guy you've never seen before, and he's wearing a red shirt, he's going to die. Typically these unlucky crew members are brought along on away missions, where they will be eaten by a vicious monster or mangled by a robot or otherwise lethally harmed. In the spir...
