In its attempt to help hype Lost co-creator J.J. Abrams' forthcoming reboot of the Star Trek film franchise, Paramount Pictures has apparently revealed a secret game project. Fan site Trekmovie.com has posted a scan of a flyer that its editors found tucked inside the Blu-ray set of Season 1 of the original Star Trek series.

No Caption Provided

The scan appears to be for a game titled Star Trek: DAC developed by Naked Sky Entertainment, the Los Angeles-based studio behind the decently received sci-fi action game RoboBlitz, released on Xbox Live and the PC in 2006. With its depiction of the new Enterprise from the film in a space battle with several Romulan vessels, the game appears to be a space combat title, perhaps similar to the Battlestar Galactica tie-in from late 2007.

Star Trek: DAC's release date is listed as May, no doubt to coincide with its film inspiration's May 8 premiere. However, the game may be less exciting that it appears. Its publisher is listed as being Paramount Pictures Games, which has released only iPhone movie tie-in games for films such as School of Rock and Shooter, according to its Web site. Attempts to elicit comment from Paramount about the game were unsuccessful as of press time.
