Wii and PS2 going on a Star Trek in Q1

Star Trek: Conquest beaming down into Europe shortly

Star Trek: Conquest was confirmed for Wii and PS2 last August and it's now got a release date of sorts: Q1 2008.

Developed by Oblivion boys Bethesda, Star Trek: Conquest's set in the Next Generation era and combines turn-based strategy and action gameplay.

The idea in the game is to take over the galaxy one planet at a time, players controlling Federation, Klingon, Romulan, Cardassian, Dominion, and Breen forces (not all at once, we're assuming).

And yes, you'll be able to fly starships using the Wii Remote. Eat that, Data.

The strategy side of the game involves managing resources, your fleet, researching technologies and expanding your empire. As soon as you engage in combat, things drop into a real-time battle.

Will is set phasers to stun? We'll have to wait and see.
