Excalibur breaks the mould of traditional space simulation games by putting the player firmly in the boots of an experienced Starfleet captain. From the outset you will be able to control your character and command your ship as if you were standing on the bridge yourself. From taking direct control of the helm, to transferring command of any ship in your task force, or even calling your senior staff to the briefing room to discuss mission tactics; Excalibur is the most immersive Star Trek experience ever. Set six months after the events in Star Trek: Nemesis, Excalibur's story mode deals with the turbulent political scene caused by a decade of war and turmoil. From the second Borg incursion in First Contact, to the fall of the Dominion and the collapse of the Romulan political system; these events resulted in huge loss of life and changed the Alpha Quadrant forever.

On Sunday we promised that we would be releasing some juicy news and updates this month and for our first big hitter, after many months in development, we are proud to announce the launch of our brand new Galaxy Class starship!

To whet your appetite we've created a short video sequence, filmed in-game, showing the Galaxy Class starship launching from space dock at Utopia Planetia. Be sure to keep you eyes peeled for some of the new VFX we have added over the past few months including new planet textures and starship navigational lights.


After that, head over to our features page for an IndieDB exclusive interview with Mark Ward about the painstaking process of bringing this fan favorite starship to life for Excalibur. The interview is full of interesting details about the development process for both artists and fans alike and there are several HD screenshots of the ship thrown in for your enjoyment!


Finally we want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has voted for us in Indie DB's Indie of the Year awards 2012. We've heard pledges of support from many of our fans all over the internet and it really does mean a great deal to all of us who are working on the game, so thank you!

That's all for now, but stay tuned for more updates in the coming weeks!
