A game designer in the US state of Arizona is working on a futuristic space-themed game that will take 50 years to design and produce.
A game design company called Eclipse is currently working on the project called Star Trek: Orion, which is based on a movie starring George Takei, who was famously diagnosed with terminal brain cancer in the 1980s.
According to the website, the game is a sci-fi space adventure where you play as Captain Kirk, the commander of the USS Enterprise.
The game is being developed by a team led by David Karp, the director of design and art at Eclipse.
According the company, Mr Karp says the game’s “story is set in the distant future, where humanity’s journey has been interrupted by a deadly alien threat that threatens to destroy all of humanity”.
“It is a space adventure set in a far future in which we have never experienced.
Our heroes, Kirk and Spock, are in a galaxy far, far away and must go on a dangerous journey to stop the alien threat,” the company said.
It also said the game was intended to be “entertaining and fun” and that it would not contain “violent or adult content”.
Star Trek: Federation will be released in the second half of 2021.
According Mr Kargarps blog, Eclipse is working with developers from the US and China to produce a version of the game which has “great art direction” and will be “fascinatingly different” to the original film.
The team is also working on other projects, including the game series Black Hole, which will be published by Atari.
The company said it will be releasing Star Trek, the first game in the series, for consoles in 2021.
“Star Trek will be the first time we have released a Star Trek game, and we are proud of it,” the blog post said.
