Star Trek's next generation revealed

Bethesda Softworks has revealed two new Star Trek games, the often-rumored RTS Star Trek: Legacy for Xbox 360 and PC,and the action-driven Star Trek: Tactical Assault for PSP and DS.

After a messy legal scuffle between Trek licence holders Viacom and developer Activision, the rights to produce games from the entire history of Trek has passed to publisher Bethesda, just in time for the 40th anniversary of the TV series.

As shown in these two screens, Star Trek: Legacy will drop gamers into an Admiral's chair, allowing them to command a task fleet of ships on a number of bold missions spanning stories from the original show right up to the Enterprise era.
