There's some mixed thoughts in our staff on how they are liking the new look of Star Trek but I'm pretty excited about it. In May, Star Trek D-A-C
will be coming to Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and Windows PC as a top-down shooter in both mulitplayer and co-op battles as well as single player. You'll be able to play with up to 12 people in three different types of game modes with three different ship types when you are playing either Starfleet or the Romulans. Expect the game in May to coincide with the launch of the movie and we'll post screens as soon as we find them.

Players can choose from three ship types for each faction, including the newfeatured in the "Star Trek" film. Each ship - the powerful Flagship, the nimble Fighter and the devastating Bomber - offers its own unique capabilities for players to master and manipulate as they fight for victory. In addition to featuring the new U.S.S. Enterprise, Star Trek: D-A-C incorporates music and signature sounds taken directly from the new "Star Trek" film.
