Deep Silver, Doublesix Digital and CBS Consumer Products announced they would release Star Trek: Who Wants to be a Millionaire? Special Edition, combining the popular game show with the Star Trek universe. In it, fans can test their knowledge with over 600 questions from the classic series. The game, published by 2waytraffic International, will be made available for XBLA to “fans worldwide except North America, Canada and Mexico.”
I know what you’re thinking – “worldwide except North America”? That’s not logical. It’s not but sadly, it’s the reality. If you live outside North America however, you get to choose from one of four playable characters, Lt. Uhura, a Vulcan officer, a human cadet, or an Orion slave girl, for the opportunity to play “fastest fingers” for your chance on stage to earn a virtual one million dollars. The game features local multiplayer mode and online leaderboards so you can test your reason and logic against other Vulcans. No word yet if friends outside North America can call in for their phone a friend.
For Trekkies and Millionaire fans in the U.S., Canada, or Mexico who want to play, you’ll have to ask someone outside North America to beam you to their place. Sadly that is their final answer…
