Star Trek has recovered?

No. Resurgence is just the title of a new game they've revealed with an accompanying trailer, but maybe it was named in hope of just such a recovery.

Star Trek shows are often named for the main ship - Enterprise, Discovery, Prodigy.

Not this game - that ship is the U.S.S. Resolute.

Dramatic Labs, a new fully remote independent game developer comprised of veterans from Telltale Games, in collaboration with ViacomCBS Consumer Products, today revealed Star Trek: Resurgence, a new third-person choice-driven adventure game set within the iconic sci-fi universe. Star Trek: Resurgence is scheduled for worldwide release in Spring 2022 for Xbox Series X/S, Xbox One, PlayStation®5, PlayStation®4 gaming consoles, and exclusively on the Epic Games Store for PCs.

Star Trek: Resurgence is an interactive narrative video game that tells an original story set in the era shortly after the events of Star Trek: The Next Generation. Stationed aboard the U.S.S. RESOLUTE, players will assume the role of two principal characters, First Officer Jara Rydek and Engineering Crewperson Carter Diaz, as they unravel a sinister mystery involving two alien civilizations on the brink of war. Throughout the game, players will immerse themselves in the Star Trek Universe, interacting with new and returning characters through a variety of dialogue and action gameplay to determine the course of the story.

Telltale again?

This week The Expanse unveiled a new game in development by Telltale.

Though this time perhaps with more legitimate Telltale pedigree.

Dramatic Lab's founder, Kevin Bruner, co-founded Telltale and hired many former Telltale employees.

And may also have been a horrible boss who drove Telltale into ruin.

We're getting Discovery melodrama vibes.

For all our sakes, hopefully not.

Unlike The Expanse game which is early in development, this one is nearly finished.

Star Trek: Resurgence is slated to release in Autumn (Oz) 2022 on Xbox, PS 4/5 and on PC exclusively on Epic.
