dg3215, I'm a bit confused. Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't Okuda not responsible for the technique used in Star Trek and the scenery. If I'm right, how could it be his fault that movies were a fail???
I dont know why people think this guy being involved makes this game any better uh all the star trek movies he had anything to do with were fail, just like this game will be. To bad that they cant make a decent trek game I really enjoyed all the shows even enterprise, the movies were eh.
This is the best news a Star Trek video game, with the line's checkered history, could have. Real Okudagrams on screen! Maybe they'll give him storyline input, too, which wouldn't hurt it any, either.
This is fantastic news for anyone interested in playing this game when it comes out. With Michael Okuda involved, the quality and consistency will be top-notch.
