It would make sense for Star Trek Resurgence to be canon. Other story-driven games like TellTale’s The Walking Deadhave been officially declared as a part of the universe. Similarly, Star Trek Resurgence is on an official point in the timeline. It takes place after the 2002 movie Star Trek: Nemesis.

“Resurgence takes place in the canon Trek timeline, after Star Trek Nemesis,” said a PR representative for the game when asked if the game is canon or not.

Star Trek Resurgence features the U.S.S. Resolute, a ship sent to resolve a conflict between the Alydians and the Hotari. You play as two characters XO Commander Jara Rydek and Petty Officer Carter Diaz. Both protagonists will make hard decisions along the way as the story progresses.

Accordingly, some major Star Trek characters are in Star Trek Resurgence. Look away if you want to avoid spoilers!

In Star Trek Resurgence, we meet Ambassador Spock, who serves as a respected intermediary between the Alydians and Hotari. You’ll seek Captain William Riker’s (from Star Trek: The Next Generation) advice.

Trekkies should have a field day with this game.
