Okay, so there's this game called Artemis. It's not licensed, but is definitely based on/inspired by Star Trek. This video, which is the saddest, most painful to watch video I've ever seen online to date, gives you a general idea of how the game works:

So basically it's a multiplayer game; each player controls a discrete "bridge station" on a single collective "ship", and the players have to cross communicate in order to play the game effectively. I think this model has potential and I like it. I might would even play a round or two if I could avoid joining a crew that insisted on wearing primary colors and really poor acting.

Like this perhaps:

From looking at the site, I'm guessing the videos are attempts to get free full copies...

Hence the dressing up etc

Flanked by Tigger and Roo, they met the ravening rabbits in pitched battle.

At first I thought it was for LAN but according to the FAQ it can be played over the internet.

I always wanted the players to be in one room together, just like a spaceship bridge. I want the captain to be able to push the helmsman aside and shout "Full power, DAMN you!!!" BUT, as a veteran game developer, I recognize that players play my game the way THEY like, not the way I like. V1.1 optimized the network code, and a server option that lets you adjust the network update speed, so Artemis plays across the internet just fine.

3 users laughed. The question is: Are they laughing with you, or at you?:
