Star Trek Online trailerIt’s a good year to be a geek, with Star Wars: The Old Republic‘s December 2011 launch now followed up by an MMO from that other big sci-fi franchise in Star Trek Online.

According to the official blurb, “Players can pioneer their own destiny as Captain of a Federation starship. Or, they can become a Klingon Warlord and expand the Empire to the far reaches of the galaxy.

“Players will have the opportunity to visit iconic locations from the popular Star Trek fiction, reach out to unexplored star systems, and make contact with new alien species. With Episode Missions, every moment spent playing Star Trek Online will feel like a new Star Trek episode in which you are the star.”

The game will be released free to play on 17 January 2012, but monthly silver and gold membership can be purchased which gives you access to extra features.
