Star Trek: D-A-C Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Paramount Digital Entertainment and TransGaming have release Star Trek: D-A-C for Mac. The game is described as a fast-paced, top-down space shooter where up to twelve players can compete in intergalactic battles between Starfleet and the Romulan Empire.

“The ‘Star Trek’ film and the Star Trek: D-A-C video game were designed to appeal to both long-term fans of the franchise and new enthusiasts alike,” said Matt Candler, vice president of Interactive Development of Paramount Digital Entertainment. “Given that Star Trek: D-A-C is a fun pick-up-and-play game on any platform, it’s a natural next step for Paramount Digital Entertainment to extend the game to Mac-based fans through this partnership with TransGaming.”

“The opportunity to add Paramount Digital Entertainment’s Star Trek: D-A-C video game to our portfolio for the Mac underscores TransGaming’s technology expertise and our value proposition for content creators,” commented Vikas Gupta, CEO & president of TransGaming Inc. “We are extremely pleased to be partnering with Paramount to bring Star Trek: D-A-C to the growing Mac gaming community.”

In Star Trek: D-A-C, players choose from five ship types for both the Romulans and the Federation - Missile Cruiser, Support Frigate, Bomber, Fighter and Flagship - with each ship offering unique capabilities for players to master and manipulate from the Captain’s chair. The Missile Cruiser is a heavy artillery ship that features a longer range than any other ship in the game, but is vulnerable to close range attacks due to a low rate of fire and slower flight speed. The Support Frigate allows players to heal friendly ships and easily target escape pods. The nimble Bomber speeds in and out of battles, dropping bombs in its wake. The Fighter attacks ships head-on, blasting missiles and dodging attacks. The durable Flagship allows players to target enemies with a reticule and inflict damage with an auto-firing phaser that attacks nearby enemies. The Starfleet Flagship is the U.S.S. Enterprise™ featured in the “Star Trek” film.

Star Trek: D-A-C supports online multiplayer, online co-op and single player gameplay. There are four different game types – Survival, Team Deathmatch, Conquest and Assault. In the single-player Survival Mode, Starfleet captains have only three lives to blast through waves of enemy ships. When destroyed, enemy ships and drones drop special ability and score pick-ups, and players are challenged to grab as many as they can before their lives run out. Top scores will move players to the top of the leader boards and Starfleet ranks. In Team Deathmatch, teams go head-to-head, clashing in a winner-takes-all fight to the finish. In Conquest, teams must simultaneously protect and conquer control points in space. In Assault, teams take turns trying to dominate or defend a sector of space.
System Requirements:
  • Mac OS X 10.5.8 Leopard or higher
  • Intel Core Duo Processor
  • 2 GB RAM
  • ATI X1600 or NVIDIA 8600 GT or greater
  • 450 MB Hard Disk space
  • This game will NOT run on PowerPC (G3/G4/G5) based Mac systems, or Intel integrated video cards.
