We've shot down a selection of new Xbox 360 screenshots of Bethesda Sofworks' forthcoming intergalactic blaster Star Trek: Legacy.
The game spans the entire history of the Star Trek universe, from the early days of Enterprise all the way through to Deep Space Nine and Voyager, as the federation must face a new powerful enemy that has the ability to travel through time.
Gamers influence the action as the admiral of a fleet of warships where their strategic skill will be tested by the dramatic real-time action. The spectacular battles will take place in a 3D deep space environment with fully realised planets, nebulas and wormholes.
Star Trek: Legacy not only features a strong single-player game but also multiplayer options that allow gamers to go online as one of four different races - federation, klingon, romulan, and borg - and take part in small skirmishes or huge battles spread across whole star systems.
Fleets can be customised once Victory Points have been earned. These enable budding admirals to select the make up of their fleet choosing from numerous light cruisers to huge battleships. Individual captains can also be selected and assigned to separate vessels.
Each ship has been accurately modelled and will suffer real-time damage during battles, so make sure you keep your shields up.
Star Trek Legacy is due out in the US later this year but no UK release date has been confirmed.
