Quintet lets you and up to 4 other players pilot your own Star Trek-Style Space craft through space, with each player taking on different roles – from a Captain Kirk to a Scotty.
With gameplay split into 5 roles – Captain, Helm, Tactical, Engineering and Science. How successful you are will depend on how well you all work together. Communication is key, and although you don’t have to sit in a swivel chair and command ‘warp speed Mr Sulu’ or ‘fire the torpedoes’, it certainly adds to the experience.
There are multiple types of ships for 1 to 5 players, so solitary pilots can still go where no man has gone before with no need for a crew. All of the different ships can play with (or against) each other in the same missions/scenarios.
The amount of cross-platform compatibility is particularly impressive, as Windows, Mac, Linux, Web Browser and Tablet/Mobile users can all play together. The Beta is available at any time, but every Monday at 7pm EST they also host Massive Battle Mondays – an event that gathers together crews for a mighty big scrap. More power to the shields and set Phasers to kill!
