Before Activision acquired the exclusive rights for all Star Trek properties, Interplay was the exclusive developer of games that were set in the original series. Interplay was set to release a last game, The Secret of the Vulcan Fury.
The game was based on a script by D.C. Fontana. The voice-overs were recorded by the cast. A crew of artists performed 3d renders of the characters that were so detailed that you could see the plucked eyebrows of Leonard Nimoy. Despite the major interest in the project, Interplay shut down production to stop the increasing loss of funds.
