First look at an older Spock in Star Trek: Resurgence
Spock is back in Star Trek: Resurgence.
Star Trek: Resurgence is the upcoming new video game by Dramatic Labs, a gaming company with a lot of ex-Telltale talent working for them. The group is making the upcoming Star Trek game to play like other titles from the former Telltale catalog, including The Wolf Among Us and Telltale’s The Walking Dead. Some adventuring will be had, but mostly the game is going to be a digital, interactive, choose your own adventure game.
Moments, interactions, and decisions will interconnect with the overall story and when you make one decision, it will affect the game moving forward. Storylines, character relationships and even the ending may very well be affected by the choices you make.
It’s a game set just about after Star Trek: Nemesis and will feature a host of characters that fans may know and may need to be introduced to. Yet, one of those for sure returning is Spock, modeled after Leonard Nimoy’s turn as the character.
Nimoy, who passed away in 2015, obviously won’t be voicing the iconic character, but the yet-to-be-named voice actor who is doing the duties sounds just like Nimoy did later in life.
The trailer from IGN shows just how the gameplay will go and will play out in a single, long, narrative where you will control the outcomes. If you’re new to games, this isn’t some first-person shooter like Call of Duty. It’s not about action, but about the story.
This is the perfect game idea for Star Trek fans.
Seeing Leonard Nimoy’s Spock again is both spooky and awesome
It’s eerie to see Nimoy’s Spock again, mostly due to how accurate the voice actor is at doing Nimoy’s voice. It’s almost identical to the legendary actor. While the character Spock is long from forgotten, with Zachary Quinto and Ethan Peck bringing the character to live in the Kelvin Timeline films and on Star Trek’s Discovery and Strange New Worlds respectively, to see new content from the original Spock is just awesome.
It’s very unlikely this will be considered canon, so this won’t affect Spocks’ actual storyline any bit. It’s also possible that I’m wrong. The basis of the assumption is the fact that other Star Trek games are not considered canon, especially Star Trek: Online, a current cash cow for Paramount and its partners on the game.
Still, if you’re hoping for one more Nimoy-Spock-Era story, canon or not, this is the perfect opportunity for you.
