Legacy of Romulus


On May 21, 2013 the Star Trek Online video game will launch a new expansion called Legacy of Romulus.


"Romulus and Remus are gone. You are one of the survivors, struggling to survive in the aftermath of unspeakable destruction. These are dark and dangerous times for your people, as the Tal Shiar crack down on any dissent and mysterious beings unleash terror throughout the far-flung colony worlds.  You will be the one to reshape an empire. Gather allies, go undercover and find the proof that will rally your people to revolt. Together, you will rise up against an oppressive regime and demand freedom. You will fight for your people.
You are the Legacy of Romulus."

Denise Crosby will return as the voice of Empress Sela to lead what is left of our cousins.  As I've said before, I'm not a gamer.  I do, however, appreciate the design and detail that's gone into this game.  More information is available on the official site.

Remembering Malachi Throne

Sad news from Romulus today...

Malachi Throne who played Romulan senator Pardek in the two-part Star Trek: TNG episode "Unification" has passed away at the age of 84.


Fans of TOS will also remember Throne as Commodore Mendez in the two-part episode "The Menagerie."  Throne also provided the voice of The Keeper in the original Star Trek pilot "The Cage."


In 2004, Throne played the Klingon Korogh in the Star Trek: New Voyages episode "In Harm's Way."


Rest in peace, Mr. Throne.  You will be fondly remembered.

T'Mar and Surok

I'm not a video gamer but I felt it necessary to report that the forthcoming Star Trek game (released April 23, 2013) will feature two new Vulcan characters.

According to StarTrek.com, Surok was one of Spock's childhood mentors and his daughter, T'Mar, was a friend of Spock's.


In the story of the game, these two apparently help to colonize New Vulcan.
