The Star Trek movie toy set I designed for Playmates Toys is going on sale in August. The Star Trek Interactive Utility Belt comes with a phaser and communicator that allow you to interact with the belt and communicate with Starfleet Command. I designed the game play and wrote the dialog with some help from a couple of excellent TV writers—who I’m not sure I’m allowed to name at the moment.
There’s a wild story about my involvement with this that involves last year’s Comic-Con. While I’m at Comic-Con this week, I’ll have to see if I can get clearance to write about it. Once again, those non-disclosure agreements make me bite my tongue—which is why it took be so long to be able to mention this in the first place.
Now that it’s public knowledge, though, woot! I can’t wait to play.
