Like we needed another reason to hope to see a preview of the upcoming Star Trek video game at Star Trek Day TO! By some miraculous happenstance, Star Trek Day TO, the first official public Nerd Mafia event, coming October 2nd to the Toronto Underground Cinema, received its first bit of mainstream press recognition, appearing in the Toronto Star and Metro News the very same day that Paramount Digital Entertainment proudly announced the amazing reception its upcoming Star Trek movie-based video game got at E3 2011. In all, the game received five “Best” awards, including Playstation: The Official Magazine and Official Xbox Magazine‘s Most Valuable Game of E3 2011, Electric Playground‘s Best of Show, Pixelated Geek‘s “Best Awesome” and The Bit Bag‘s Best Co-op.

Beyond the official top honour spots, Star Trek also received a spot on CNN’s Top 5 Games of E3 2011 list, along with Bioshock Infinite, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, the new Tomb Raider Lara Croft origin story title and The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. In all, it’s a pretty exciting day for Star Trek and its fans. Without a doubt, a preview of the game would make an already amazing event schedule even better.

    Some of the images remind me of Mass Effect.
