Spock, Young & Old, Voicing For Star Trek Online
As reported by IGN, both Zachary Quinto and Leonard Nimoy will lend their voices to the forthcoming MMO Star Trek Online. "I'm happy to be involved with Star Trek Online. In this game, the essence of Star Trek -- exploration and adventure -- lives long and prospers. I'm pleased that a whole new generation of fans will be able to discover new frontiers in the Star Trek universe." Says Leonard Nimoy. Check out the article excerpt below, as-well-as studio footage of Spock Prime recording in-game narrative.
Last week Cryptic Studios announced that Zachary Quinto, who plays Spock in the most recent Star Trek film, would be providing voiceovers for the game. Today Cryptic's revealing that Leonard Nimoy, the series' original Spock, will also be joining the cast to provide the voiceover for the introduction and "key scenes and events in-game." Nimoy has provided other voiceovers for videogames in the past including Civilization IV and several other Star Trek games.
Atari president and CEO Jim Wilson adds, "Mr. Nimoy's participation in Star Trek Online brings the game to a whole new level. When Star Trek fans hear his voice they will know that Star Trek Online truly is part of the Star Trek universe."(source IGN via TrekWeb)
