Live long and prosper with the Star Trek App for Windows Phone 8

I’m having a hard time recalling any other apps in the Windows Phone Store that are aimed squarely at all the Trekkies out there. But you do have one now, Star Trek App for Windows Phone 8 is a promotional app for the upcoming film: Star Trek: Into Darkness.  Let’s check it out.

The Star Trek App is available on iOS and Android, but we typically don’t get many promotional apps like this on Windows Phone.  Take it as a good sign that things are changing for the little OS that could. So what do you get with this Star Trek App? Some nifty features to help get you pumped for the film that comes out in about two weeks.

  • Stay up-to-date on the latest Star Trek Into Darkness news
  • Exclusive articles found only in the app
  • Sweepstakes to win prizes like an official uniform
  • Exclusive offers from partners
  • Trivia and polls
  • And more

Star Trek App SC

One thing they don’t mention in the app description is that you’ll have the ability to purchase tickets through Fandango to a pre-screening of Star Trek: Into Darkness on May 15. Two days before it’s supposed to hit theaters on the 17th.

Live long and prosper. Anyone stoked for the movie?

You can download the Star Trek App for Windows Phone 8 right here, use the QR code below, or swipe to the right in our app. Mini update: Reader jhoff80 informed us that it's also available for Windows 8/RT. Grab that version here.

TechAbstract says:

My friend is a star trek fan and we are planning to go see it, but he has a WP7 lol

moc426 says:

There is a star track in there :) first paragraph

Sam Sabri says:

Confession: I'm not a Trekkie. Fixed and sowwie

moc426 says:

Haha I am no trekkie either.

thirdday2002 says:

It's about time. I keep feeling like I'm being Khaned by Paramount. All is forgiven! Live long and prosper!

Quin 2013 says:

Ha ha ha ha ha!!

Khaaaaan!

simphf says:

*insert Shatner rage face.

12Danny123 says:

So excited for the new movie!!!! :D!!!!!!!! Glad this app is here!

Quin 2013 says:

Serve us a shot lad!

wpn00b says:

Cool! I'm glad WP is getting a little more attention. Checking the app out now. I'm excited for this new movie.

Jimmy Jangle says:

Shame it crashes out quite frequently, on Lumia 520...

startrekapp says:

@Jimmy, we're actively working on new updates to address stability and enhancements.  Feel free to message us on Twitter @startrekapp with any issues for us to address or shout-outs on your thoughts on the app.  We hope you enjoy.

K_lando says:

I tweeted, but figure if you all are reading here too I'd repeat it here... Please make the live tile match the color of the phone's current theme!  Otherwise, thanks for bringing it to WP8.

BCH says:

Hell yes!!

myjota says:

Superfan of super star trek thanks for this super app

lin0x says:

Star Track app? lol..still trying to figure out how to track stars with this app.. JK.
It's a great app for star trek followers like me!!
 

DenniSundaY says:

Won't work too well. When I want to join and select the check, the app will close and then I'm not registered yet. Can't join because it does that al the time...

startrekapp says:

@DenniSundaY, we apologize for the inconvenience. Follow and DM us on Twitter @startrekapp with your device info and we'll see what we can do to help. We're actively updating the app with stability and performance enhancements.

DenniSundaY says:

Thank you for the support! I found out that logging in with Facebook works just fine so I used that to join the community :)

AriesDog says:

Good sign that Windows Phone is gaining acceptance. Plus, the more nerd culture apps the better, for me at least.

onysi says:

its not star trek unless its during Picard's time.  JJ is rubish

PeterFnet says:

He'll be the one to save it. As a diehard fan, I realize that the mass majority of the public must find these movies appealing. I think he did that with the first and I look forward to what he'll do with this new one.

starblade876 says:

It's quite Ferengi of you to think profit==saving it, but assisting in the bastardization of the franchise is not saving it so much as it's just dumbing it down for the mainstream. What I got out of the first film was: glorified fanfic. I was surprised Spock and Kirk weren't made to have a passionate love scene on the bridge while Bones said, "Damn it, Jim, I'm a sexual being, not a eunuch!" before he joins in and, then, a red shirt guy dies randomly just because.

onysi says:

yyeah i'm hoping this will open up a new tv series.  thats my only hope for this film.
 

Nik Rolls says:

You do realise that it was Star Trek way before Picard, right? Like, for 23 years.

karelj says:

Picard is a diplomat. Couldn't hold a candle to Kirk or Sisko.

Quin 2013 says:

Sisko was the man!

Sharpmango says:

Sisko was indeed the man, but both he and picard were incredibly smart captains in their own way. I loved both series. Kirk was one of a kind.. And perhaps archer and janeway are in the middle

PhilR8 says:

Let's not go crazy here... they all have their strengths. Except Janeway. Picard is the best captain by far, though.

onysi says:

janeway is second to picard.

Janeway is rubbish.

1Rahtid says:

Any trek without Spock is %%&&#%*7@a.
Sorry, my translator is broken and I can't seem to find an appropriate translation for Klingon "rubbish"

K_lando says:

**ALL*** Star Trek is GOOD. I don't give a flying frack what anyone else says. Even >>bad<< Trek is still Trek. And yes, that includes Enterprise the TV series and Nemesis the movie!

I still accuse our QA team weekly with "Kobayashi Maru!"

PeterFnet says:

You gotta do what you gotta do to win!

PeterFnet says:

Consider me stoked for the movie.

WPenvy says:

Thank you Jebus!!!! I was getting sh¡t tired of seeing posts for the ios and android versions on Facebook with nothing for WP. Thanks Paramount!!!

erasure25 says:

There's the LCARS app in the Windows 8 store.

MadMonty says:

What a piece of baktag! This app is not available in the Klingon language? This vexes me. *NERD RAGE*
 
...just kidding. Looks like fun! :P
 

1Rahtid says:

Lol. Best joke of the week, for me so far. Maybe the fact that the film is only two weeks away has put me in a good mood. No... your comment would've been hilarious regardless how I was feeling.

jhoff80 says:

For what it's worth, it's also available for Windows 8 / Windows RT:
 
Star Trek App

Sam Sabri says:

Thanks! I'll add it above. 

PhilR8 says:

It's not very touch-friendly on my Lumia 920. The "are you one of the 1701" form was teeny tiny. Also took me a couple tries to successfully buy tickets to the fan sneak preview... I got there eventually though ;)

jlynnm350z says:

Trekkies rule! Long live star trek

ScubaDog says:

Try the TOS Communicator.  It is truly aimes ONLY at Star Trek fans.

1Rahtid says:

Stoked? Hell yeah!!
I'm in the process of tuning the dilethium crystals in my metaphasic transducer, just so I can interdimensional teleport into theatre with my sons on day1.
Khaaaaan!!!

siriustds says:

Nice  ;) ..

"Captain, your logic is impeccable. We are in grave danger."
"ERRRRORRR."
"NOMAD, Execute your prime directive."

Does anyone know the company or person that wrote this application ?
