January 14, 2016 (Framingham, MA) – Disruptor Beam, the company that brings together fan communities and games, announced today that STAR TREK TIMELINES, a new strategy role-playing game that brings together 50 years of Star Trek, is now available.

Licensed by CBS Consumer Products, Star Trek Timelines features hundreds of beloved characters from all eras of Star Trek as well as stunning 3D graphics. Exploring the galaxy alongside friends, players can gather their favorite starships, and assemble a dream crew including familiar faces like Kirk, Spock, Janeway, Worf, Locutus of Borg, and many more. As they participate in missions, players have the opportunity to command a variety of iconic starships and engage in 3D ship-to-ship battles with a cinematic feel.
“We’re celebrating Star Trek’s 50th anniversary this year by welcoming fans from around the world into the Timelines game community,” said Jon Radoff, Founder and CEO of Disruptor Beam. “We have created a game that will immerse fans in the Star Trek universe like no other game has. And with its deep, story-driven gameplay and stellar graphics, we believe that Timelines is one of the best-looking game experiences on a mobile device today.”
Star Trek Timelines includes content and characters from Star Trek: The Original Series, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Star Trek: Voyager, and Star Trek: Enterprise – plus the first ten Star Trek films, from Star Trek: The Motion Picture (1979) through Star Trek Nemesis (2002). Star Trek celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2016, with the first episode of the original series airing back in September 1966.
Disruptor Beam has built a name for itself as a game developer that has successfully brought together fan communities with games, while mastering the strategy role-playing game genre across both mobile and web platforms.
