Star Trek: Secret of Vulcan Fury
Interplay acquired the rights to make games based on the original Star Trek TV series in the 1990s. They quickly announced plans to make an action-adventure game called Star Trek: Secret of Vulcan Fury, with Spock as a central character. To make things even more interesting, they hired the original series scriptwriter D. C. Fontana to write the script for the game. A couple of teaser trailers were released showcasing the impressive graphics with detailed character modeling for the main characters.
But things did not work out as planned and Interplay decided to stop work on the title in 1999. Later, Interplay would even lose the license to Star Trek games when Activision took over all the rights to one of the most famous space sci-fi franchise of all times.
