Real-world.png Star Trek Timelines is a strategy role playing video game developed by Disruptor Beam as an app, released on 14 January 2016. Based on every era of the Star Trek franchise, including TOS and TNG feature films, Timelines has releases for iOS and Android devices and web browsers.

Overview

Developed by Disruptor Beam, the game allows you to command a starship and assemble a crew of your favorite Star Trek characters while steering the fate of the galaxy through diplomacy, science and force of arms. On March 4, 2020 Tilting Point acquired the game from Disruptor Beam and created a new studio Wicked Realm Games to support the title.[1]

Gameplay

Set after the events of Star Trek Nemesis and Star Trek: Voyager's series finale, Star Trek Timelines begins as the player captains their first starship command to investigate an unknown temporal anomaly. Upon arriving at the anomaly, the player meets Q, who immediately explains that a full-on temporal crisis has begun throwing people, places, and objects from other timelines (including the Prime Universe, the Mirror Universe and the Warship Universe) into this one.

Star Trek Timelines lets players recruit characters from all eras of the Star Trek TV series, including Deep Space Nine, Voyager, Enterprise, plus the Original Series and Next Generation movies. Players take on the role of Captain, in command of their first starship (a Constellation class starship, just like Jean-Luc Picard's first command.) Soon, players must recruit crew and build starships from across the timelines in order to aid Q by sending crew on Away Missions, engaging in Starship Battles, and completing main missions to progress the story and choose which game factions take further control of a galaxy in chaos.

Away missions

One of the primary ways to progress in the game (including Starship Battles) an Away Mission is when the player sends a team of three characters out to complete a challenge. Each step of an Away Mission will require a character with the appropriate skill level and proficiency: diplomatic, scientific, medical, engineering, security, and command.[2] Certain characters will even be able to unlock special steps on an Away Mission for rare rewards. Each Away Mission has three levels of difficulty: normal, elite, and epic.[3]

Starship battles

Described as, "real-time conflicts between two starships and their respective crew."[3] Before a starship battle, the player assigns 1-5 characters to a starship's battle station. Each character, when placed in a battle station, is able to temporarily increase the output of a ship. Currently, this is represented by three core stats: Damage, Accuracy, and Evasion.

Development

Officially announced in April 2014[4], Star Trek Timelines is a 3D/2D game built in Unity 5. Its first live demo was at PAX East 2015[5], and the first playable tutorial experience was later debuted at Star Trek Las Vegas 2015[6].
