First and foremost, no the new game is NOT related to the Star Trek franchise. The idea was toyed with before reaching the decision.
A couple of weeks a go I received a text message from a friend while I was at work, asking me to look at steam and its special offers, and if I fancied giving the game a go. Now this game has been around almost as long as electricity. I have looked at it several times and always came up on the side of “maybe later” or “not really digging it right now”, I don;t know if it indicates a change in my play direction, or if it was the ridiculously low price on steam, but I decided why the hell not lets give it a go.
