STAR TREK: Legacy is in development for both the Xbox 360 videogame and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows, while STAR TREK: Tactical Assault is being developed for Nintendo DS and Sony PSP (PlayStation Portable). Both titles are scheduled to launch this fall under license from CBS Consumer Products.
"We are thrilled to have one of STAR TREK's most prolific and distinguished writers on our project team," said Todd Vaughn, Bethesda Softworks' VP of Development. "Fontana's involvement underscores our commitment to remain true to the STAR TREK vision and provide fans with the exceptional, original and accurate STAR TREK games that they deserve."
Fontana has written countless episodes, spanning the original STAR TREK series to STAR TREK: Deep Space Nine®. In addition to her collaboration on STAR TREK, Fontana has influenced television science fiction writing with her work on The Six Million Dollar Man, Babylon 5, and Earth: Final Conflict. In 2001, she was inducted into the American Screenwriters Association Hall of Fame and in both 1997 and 2002, received the Writers Guild Morgan Cox Award for her many years of service to the Guild. "From TV to videogames, the STAR TREK story continues to excite and engage fans of all ages," said Fontana. "I applaud Bethesda Softworks' loyalty to the franchise and I am looking forward to providing fans with memorable adventures and characters, all set in creative, compelling storylines."
STAR TREK: Tactical Assault, in development for handheld gaming systems, features real-time spaceship combat from the universe of the original STAR TREK series. With a wide array of authentic STAR TREK races, ships, and weaponry, you can engage in single-player battle through either the Federation or Klingon campaigns or in head-to-head wireless multiplayer combat. STAR TREK: Tactical Assault is being developed in the studios of Quicksilver Software, creators of the highly popular Star Trek: Starfleet Command.
