Star Trek Free-to-Play Coming to Gameforge

Can't get enough Star Trek?
Can't get enough Star Trek? Free-to-play gaming portal Gameforge, based in Germany, announced today that it has signed a worldwide licensing agreement to develop and publish casual free-to-play browser-based games based on the Star Trek franchise. What Gameforge has in store for the IP remains unknown, but the company's press release states that "acquiring the Star Trek license marks the start of Gameforge¬ís global AAA expansion."

Will a free-to-play Star Trek offering from the developers of Metin2 live long and prosper? Will it have the universal appeal that remained out of reach for subscription-based Star Trek Online? We'll remain on watch.
