If you've ever wanted to know just how cold that dish of revenge should be served up, or how hard you need to throw a James T. Kirk punch, Star Trek Online might be the game you need. This MMO lets you assume the role of either the captain of a Federation starship, or a Klingon Warlord out to expand the Empire.

No matter which path you choose, you'll be carving the future of the Star Trek universe, as you discover familiar and new worlds in the 25th Century. That's a timeframe beyond even the latest movies, so you can try to undo the retconning of JJ Abram's recent flick if you like. Just like any other MMO, you can cruise around at your own leisure, or there are Episode Missions which put you in the centre of individual stories fit for a TV series.

During these missions, and even from the start of the game, the universe is your oyster. Space and ground combat are instantly available to you, so you can start picking fights with other nations and leading your away team's Red Shirts into certain doom at once. As Captain, your decisions are final and your crew hangs on your every command, so it's best you don't screw up.

You can also make your mark on this grand adventure by kitting out your starship or Klingon Warbird. From colours to different parts in construction, you can build a cruiser that suits you best. Better yet, you can create your own species in Star Trek Online as well! What more could a Trekkie want?
