January 30th, 2010 @ 21:25:20Star Trek Online is now available on Mac, Perfect World Entertainment, Cryptic Studios and TransGaming announced the news last week.

Star Trek Online is set in the year 2409, thirty years after the events of Star Trek: Nemesis. The peace treaty between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire, established in Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country and strengthened by the Dominion War arc of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, has collapsed, and both sides are once again at war. The Romulan Star Empire continues to deal with the fallout of the loss of their homeworld twenty-two years earlier (as shown in J. J. Abrams’ Star Trek reboot), while the Dominion was rebuilding its fleet. The Borg Collective has re-emerged as a major threat.

You choose Federation, Klingon, or the Romulan faction, Mac players can dowload the client and jump into the world of Star Trek.
