Apart from Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force, Trek-based games have rarely been worth your attention, often stretching the patience of even the most die-hard Trekkie, but with the series' recent reboot at the hands of JJ Abrams, there's potential for an equal fresh start in the videogame realm, if only at the hands of the right publisher and dev studio.

Today Namco Bandai has announced a partnership with Paramount pictures to publish and distribute the recently unveiled Star Trek videogame being developed by Digital Extremes (The Darkness II, Homefront PC, BioShock 2 Multiplayer). The game is a stand-alone story based in Abram's reimagined Trek universe, and will release in early 2013 ahead of the hotly anticipated Star Trek movie sequel.

Here's hoping Digital Extremes can maintain the high level polish of the first movie (and hopefully second), and finally give fans a game they can be proud of.

Watch the E3 reveal trailer embedded below.

Um first person describes basically the whole Batman game (with the edit to third person that is) and that game was awesome. Sure every time you open a grate it's gotta let you know that batman is super duper strong, and every finishing move slows to a crawl but the cuts are so fluid that you can easily forgive it as cinematography integrated rather than the old style of "reward" you get for finishing up to a certain play point.

The problem isn't the format anyway.
