Star Trek Coming To Pocket Starships

SPYR and CBS Consumer Products have signed an agreement that will “allow the incorporation of intellectual property (IP) from various Star Trek television series into future Pocket Starships updates and expansions.”

In Pocket Starships, players can “build and pilot several ships and forge alliances on your quest for galactic domination. You can perform or initiate various activities ranging from fighting pirates to participating in Faction Alerts.”

Starting in November, those playing Pocket Starships will be able to “explore new sectors and engage in exciting battles with a certain assimilating Collective and will be able to staff their ships with their favorite Star Trek characters from the Star Trek TV series franchise – including The Next Generation, Deep Space Nine, and Voyager, through a trading card expansion.”

“We are very excited to announce that we have obtained a license to use Star Trek IP in Pocket Starships,” said James R. Thompson, SPYR‘s CEO and President. “Pocket Starships and Star Trek are a perfect fit, with both Pocket Starships and Star Trek celebrating a spirit of exploration and cooperation. We think that Star Trek fans will enthusiastically embrace the new Star Trek-based content we will be adding to Pocket Starships. We are confident that with Pocket Starship‘s real-time, cross-platform MMO gameplay, together, CBS Consumer Products and SPYR can take Pocket Starships and Star Trek mobile games where no one has gone before.”
