We've heard rumours of this for quite a while, but Sniper has spotted more info about a Star Trek themed MMORPG in the works. Emmert said players will begin Star Trek Online as the captain of a small Starfleet or Klingon Empire ship.

As they progress through the game, players can increase in rank and gain larger vessels and more crew. Dopefish spotted more info here.

Apparently the edited version of Fallout 3 has been approved for sale in Australia, report IGN. While the Classifications Board can take anywhere from a few days and a few weeks to hand down their decision - it seems that the edits made to the Bethesda Softworks title have been successful, with the second edition of the game granted a new MA15+ rating this afternoon. There's an interview about Fallout 3 with Pete Hines from Bethesda on Bit-Tech.
