WizKids/NECA and CBS Consumer Products today announced that they have entered into an agreement wherein WizKids will create HeroClix branded games to be sold both physically and digitally, set in the Star Trek universe, including all of the Star Trek television shows and Star Trek feature films.
"Star Trek changed the way people think about the future," said WizKids President Lax Chandra. "We are thrilled at the opportunity to marry our innovative game design and exceptional miniatures with the incredibly rich Star Trek franchise. We believe HeroClix and the Star Trek Universe are ideally suited for cooperative gaming and table top miniature simulation and will speak to gamers in a new and compelling way."
The first WizKids/NECA Star Trek game will release around Christmas, 2010 with additional expansions to follow.

Re: STAR TREK HeroClix Announced
Over on a HeroClix message board it has also been announced that the new partnership will include "a number of games - Spaceship based clix combat game, not compatible with HC & a self contained co-operative game with clix elements through out."
This is truly an amazing time for the HeroClix brand. Like a phoenix it's risen from the ashes of Topps to a incredible slate of products and licenses. Stay tuned to Figures.com as we'll be bringing you lots of Wizkids and HeroClix news in the coming months!
