Not long ago, it was announced that the new Spock, Zachary Quinto, would be doing some voice work for Star Trek: Online. Now it has been announced that the original Spock, Leonard Nimoy, will also be providing voiceovers for the MMORPG.
Nimoy will be providing the voiceover for the introduction as well as for “key scenes and events in-game.” This in not Nimoy’s first foray into videogames. In the past, he has done voiceovers for Civilization IV as well as for several other Star Trek games.
“I’m happy to be involved with Star Trek Online,” said Nimoy. “In this game, the essence of Star Trek, exploration and adventure, lives long and prospers. I’m pleased that a whole new generation of fans will be able to discover new frontiers in the Star Trek universe.”
“Mr. Nimoy’s participation in Star Trek Online brings the game to a whole new level,” said Atari president and CEO Jim Wilson. “When Star Trek fans hear his voice they will know that Star Trek Online truly is part of the Star Trek universe.”
