And Bethesda's first Wii game is...?

Bethesda has finally dipped its toe into Wii development with news that Star Trek: Conquest is coming to the Wii. Oh, and the PS2.

Trekkies will be able to assume the role of staffers from the Federation, Klingon, Romulan, Cardassian, Dominion, and Breen forces. The game's all about controlling the galaxy, one planet at a time.

The firm says that you'll have to build and manage your growing empire in turn-based strategy "fully utilizing the Wii Remote" as you move your starships around the galactic map.

Once engaged in combat the camera switches to a ship level tactical view giving you direct command of your fleet while you engage in real-time combat. You can then maneuver your starship with the Nunchuk and fire with the Remote.

The game's due out this side of Christmas. Hit the Images tab for the first pics.
