Fontana Writing Bethesda Star Trek Scripts

Bethesda today announced that the famed Star Trek writer Dorothy “D.C.” Fontana along with here partner Derek Chester have collaborated to write the scripts for its upcoming titles, Star Trek: Legacy and Star Trek: Tactical Assault. For those not in the know (like me, thank wikipedia) Fontana has been a prominent creative force behind the Star Trek franchise since its inception in the 1960s and apparently continues to contribute to its broad-based appeal with vibrant and innovative story lines.

Star Trek: Legacy is in development for both the Xbox 360 and PC, while Star Trek: Tactical Assault is being developed for Nintendo DS and PSP. Both titles are scheduled to launch this fall under license from CBS Consumer Products.

We are thrilled to have one of Star Trek’s most prolific and distinguished writers on our project team,” said Todd Vaughn, Bethesda Softworks’ VP of Development. “Fontana’s involvement underscores our commitment to remain true to the Star Trekvision and provide fans with the exceptional, original and accurate Star Trek games that they deserve.”
