    I would also like to know if anyone has inside information on this. The last I heard was that some previews were coming out on the TOS DVDs in 2007 and that the release date had been pushed back to some indefinite time...

    Is this going the way of Spore? (i.e. - forget hearing about a specific date for quite some time)

    Lol. Yes, indeed. They have been planning a Massive(ly) Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG) set in the Star Trek universe for some time now. Unfortunately, I don't believe any concrete plans or dates have been released.

    Back in April of 2007, Perpetual Entertainment launched a campaign to try to get game developers (programmers, artists, engineers, etc.) for the team. That leads me to believe we are probably pretty far off from a release date, since they were still hiring some key positions. I'd expect something no earlier than mid-2008 and probably later, imo.

    There's a minimal amount of info, news, and concept art at the official site. You can also sign up for their mailing list to keep informed on new public developments.

    I don't know when it's coming out but i do know that players begin as Starfleet cadets and will be able to rank up to Captain and even Admiral. It will also not feature Permadeath and instead when your health reaches a critical level you'll be beamed to sickbay. It's also set in the early 25th century (just beyond the eras of TNG, DS9, and Voyager). Also current list of canidate races to play are: Human, Vulcan, Klingon, Bajoran, Bolian, Cardassian, Ferengi, Tellarite, Andorian. A final list of playable races has not been announced.

    The most likely release date is mid 2009 at the moment.
