Star Trek: The Game set to land on April 26

Video game tie-in to be release ahead of film sequel

The 2009 reboot of Star Trek by J. J. Abrams was generally well accepted when it came out, and Namco Bandai is getting ready to add to the new universe with its upcoming game.

Pencilled in for an April 26 launch in Australia, the Star Trek game is launching ahead of the next Star Trek instalment that is coming to theatres on May 17.

The game, which is coming for all major home consoles and PC, is based on a stand-alone storyline that continues the adventure Kirk and Spock as they work together to stop an enemy race bent on conquering the galaxy.

Just as Kirk and Spock’s cooperation drove the story of Star Trek on screen, Digital Extremes executive producer, Brian Miller, said it will form the core of the video game experience.

“Kirk is this brash cowboy character, whereas Spock is the exact opposite, and when you break down Star Trek to those elements, you had to make a co-op game,” Miller said.

“There was no other game we could possibly make."

The two lead, as well as numerous other actors from the 2009 film, will reprise their roles in Star Trek: The Game by lending their voice and likeness.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
