William Shatner lends voice to Elite: Dangerous addon

    
82

HCS VoicePacks, a website that sells Elite: Dangeous voice addons in collaboration with Frontier, will soon have a new one from Star Trek actor William Shatner.

“A new voice pack with over 1300 phrases from the legendary science fiction master who has lent his voice for a thoroughly immersive experience. A unique and special preview from YouTuber ‘Obsidian Ant’ will give you a feel for the character as well as some insight into some new features, one being a Nebula Tour which is a very exciting journey that you can enjoy with Orion in the game.”

The formal release is April 8th, though you can preorder now for £9.99 (about $14.13 US) and a chance to win some Shatner and Leonard Nimoy memorabilia.

This won’t be the first celebrity voice in the game; the company has previously sold packs voiced by Tom Baker and Brian Blessed. Check out the previews below.

I’ve got nothing against Shatner, but the ones I’d jump to pony up cash for have left this small planet: Nimoy and Barrett. I would, however, consider a pack by Takei or Nichols. And I adore Gates McFadden’s voice. It seems I’m not the only one; she’s apparently quite popular for audiobook work.

Whats really sad about this is PWE/Cryptic was to cheap to pay him to voice Star Trek Online. And you know they have more money than the company behind ED. I really hate PWE/Cryptic all they care about is lockboxes and the cash shop. Its a no wonder that only Whales play sto now. And the game is losing players to games like ED. Go to any of the player hubs in sto and they are mostly empty where they used to be busy all the time with players.In fact ED is more like a Trek game than sto is. Star Trek was always about exploring. You have non of that in sto. Its all about mad dps and pew pew pew. Just shoot first no talking.

Estranged Don’t care about StarTrek.
Yeah, i just said that. Boston Legal was glorious. His Denny Crane persona was extremely good by my standards and the friendship he had with Alan Shore showed something that i never thought i would see in anything on television: A good evolving character, with a healthy relationship.

BalsBigBrother Zo5o I thought they both played the role well. Lovett will always be the seminal Holly for me as he was the first. actually, come to think of it, what we really need is a Rimmer voice pack!

Zo5o yeah that is the other voice pack I have been tempted with.  Red Dwarf is awesome  but I always preferred Holly when it was Hattie Hayridge though Normon Lovet was still good :-)
