And now, a few words from Wicked Realm Games devs:

Jessica S., Lead Narrative Designer:
I grew up watching Star Trek with my mom, playing 25th Anniversary and A Final Unity. That little girl would have never believed that someday she would get to work on her very own Star Trek game! I feel so blessed to be able to contribute to this new renaissance in the Star Trek universe, and I hope many more people get to discover the awesomeness of Star Trek as a result.

Lexi W., Live Operations Producer
As a new initiate to the Star Trek world, it reminds me why scifi remains my favorite genre - the potential contained in the Star Trek universe opens our minds to what is possible and what we can accomplish when we work together. I have loved getting to know this world and its people, watching with joy as our studio experiences new episodes, twists, and characters together. I’m so grateful for the opportunity to explore this universe and bring its possibilities to all our players!

Joe R., Art Manager
I still have a vivid memory of watching in terror as the ceti eel entered Chekov's ear as a kid. I enjoyed watching Spock commune with whales and would watch the new shows after school, but it wasn't until many years later watching and re-watching with my partner that I would grow to love Star Trek. Our personal favorite is Deep Space Nine... which may have led in some manner to naming our son, Miles. Whether he goes on to pick up a hyperspanner or a trumpet remains to be seen, but Star Trek has been an instrumental part of my life and career over the past decade.

Sean K., Artist
I’m a bit of a johnny come lately when it comes to the Star Trek franchise. I’ve been a sci-fi fan since I was a kid, but Star Trek had never really caught my attention growing up. It wasn’t until my late twenties that I gave TNG a go, and after a few episodes was immediately drawn in by not only the great cast of characters, but also the fascinating stories that delved into complex questions of science, and the human (as well as alien) condition. It didn’t hurt that it also had some fun alien designs, and thrilling ship battles. Since then I’ve watched all of DS9, and currently I’m finally catching up on Voyager. At the time I first watched TNG ( now almost a decade ago) I couldn’t have imagined that I’d be fortunate enough to work on such a classic, and beloved franchise.

Robert B., Technical Designer
Growing up, my dad showed me the Star Trek movies until we reached First Contact, and the Borg implant popped from Picard’s cheek as I screamed. While we stopped there for a while, we watched the other movies repeatedly, and I still vividly remember Scotty speaking into a mouse whenever I talk to my Echo. I watched the shows through TV reruns and scattered DVDs, catching these tiny isolated glimpses of Star Trek. As rereleases came out, I gladly filled in my knowledge gaps. I’ve always appreciated Trek’s combination of the silly and serious as they explore the frontiers of an optimistic future. I’m happy to work on realizing small parts of this universe, and getting the chance to revisit some of my favorite memories as I look towards future Star Trek adventures.

Shan, Communications Lead
While I do not have specific key memories about Star Trek, I feel it has been part of my life for as long as I can remember. For me Star Trek represents hope. Hope for a better world, a better future - one we can all have a hand in creating.

Live long and prosper,
