Live Long and Prosper! Play Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? Special Editions

The Star Trek: The Original Series – Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Edition features the authentic look & feel of the popular science-fiction television series, as well as 600 questions based on the classic Star Trek universe. The Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? studio is set aboard a Constitution-class starship bridge; the host, audience, lifelines and contestants are all themed around the original Star Trek series. Players can choose from four avatars – Lt. Uhura, a Vulcan officer, a human cadet and an Orion slavegirl. The Phone-A-Friend lifeline also features eight characters from this iconic science-fiction universe.

Based on the world’s most successful TV game show, Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Editions retains all the excitement and atmosphere of the original program.

Contestants participate in the Fastest Finger First round and then scale a mountain of questions in the quest for that elusive virtual million, making judicious use of the three classic lifelines – Fifty-Fifty, Ask The Audience, and Phone-A-Friend. It’s a social experience, too: up to four friends can compete locally to outdo each other, with each person’s score dependent on their speed.

But the standout feature of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Editions is the introduction of special licensed question packs featuring the biggest names from movies, TV and much more. Star Trek: The Original Series – Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Edition can be purchased as an extension to the original Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Editions game.

The Star Trek: The Original Series – Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? Special Edition will be released in February 2012 via PlayStation®Store and will be available throughout Europe and in Australia, New Zealand, Chile and Columbia via the Xbox LIVE® Marketplace for  Xbox 360.
