William Shatner, the first captain in the series, commented “I am delighted to have the chance to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Star Trek with my fellow captains by providing our voices to STAR TREK: Legacy,” Shatner said. “Bethesda Softworks has done an excellent job in creating an exciting game that stays true to Star Trek’s roots and accurately incorporates elements from each series.”

As mentioned in the Bethesda Softworks press release, the five actors will reprise their roles from their respective series as follows:

* William Shatner as Captain James T. Kirk from the STAR TREK: The Original Series – 1966-1969
* Patrick Stewart as Captain Jean-Luc Picard from STAR TREK: The Next Generation® – 1987-1994
* Avery Brooks as Captain Benjamin Lafayette Sisko from STAR TREK: Deep Space Nine® –1993-1999
* Kate Mulgrew as Captain Kathryn Janeway from STAR TREK: Voyager® – 1995-2001
* Scott Bakula as Captain Jonathan Archer in STAR TREK: Enterprise™ – 2001-2005

STAR TREK: Legacy places you in the role of the Admiral of a task force of warships, which you control in small and large-scale battles. Test your strategic and tactical skills in real-time combat featuring over 60 authentic spaceships, full damage modeling, and spectacular visual effects. Play through the single-player campaign or in the extensive multiplayer mode with a group of friends online.

The compelling storyline in Legacy spans the entire STAR TREK Universe, including the Original Series, STAR TREK: The Next Generation®, STAR TREK: Deep Space Nine®, STAR TREK: Voyager®, and STAR TREK: Enterprise™ eras.

STAR TREK: Legacy is in development for both the Xbox 360â„¢ videogame and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC.
