From the beginning, Star Trek has been exploring the ultimate frontier – a place where no one has gone before with courage. Paramount, which owns Trek IP, has now assigned that language to ৷ Push NFTs to the new Paramount.xyz platform, Which it plans to launch on April 9 in partnership with Recur ৷ Early feedback from fans has been overwhelmingly negative, but like it or not, Star Trek content is coming to Metaverse. When the metavars will actually exist, it is still in the air.
With the launch of the Star Trek Continuum project, you’ll be able to pony up $ 250 to buy an algorithmically generated Starship. And if you’re hoping to get an iconic ship like the Constitution Class, popularized by Oz Enterprise, be prepared to drop a lot of cash. The $ 250 “Captain Pack” includes a ship, and the constitution drop rate is very low. You have an 11% chance of amending a constitution or constitution (as seen in previous movies), but less popular classes like Oberth and Soyuz are more common. If you want a guaranteed constitution, you need to buy Admiral Pack, which you can only do if you purchase one. Separate Known as a Recur Pass of NFT $ 350 (current price). The Galaxy Class doesn’t seem to be an alternative to this drop either, so if you want the NCC 1701-D Vibe you’ll need to buy an extra pack later. The Ferengi Alliance must approve the scheme.
What you will be able to do with these unique items is as vague as the Paramount subsequent NFT project. There will be an “experimental hub” for holding first-season NFTs and there will be more types of NFT content such as characters in future seasons, and you’ll be able to go on some kind of mission. Paramount further hinted that other features from Nickelodeon and Paramount Pictures will be coming to Paramount.xyz in the future.
It’s all obscure because “Metavers” and “Web 3” don’t exist yet. These experiences and the basic technology to make them possible are still many years away. We now have a blockchain that can assign “ownership” of these digital items. You rely on the platform to give them a price and set a reasonable purchase price. In this case, I think they must have missed the mark on the second point. Charging 250 for a single NFT item, with no functionality, would be a solid sale for any Phantom – and Especially For Star Trek.
One of the basic elements of the stories told in the trek is the post-scarcity society. We hear time and time again that the people of the Federation are no longer concerned with the acquisition of material resources, but with the advancement of themselves and of humanity as a whole. This is a big part of what makes Star Trek so optimistic and appealing to its fans, which is basically the entire editorial staff of Extremetech. Turning this favorite franchise into an NFT machine is, at best, deaf-mute.
