Nexeon Technologies announced a partnership with Castle Thorn Software to help see its current MMO, StarQuest Online, into a new stage of production.

To allow Castle Thorn Software to concentrate solely on game development, Nexeon’s involvement with the title sees that the game is hosted on cutting-edge servers to support a global client base. Nexeon will also market the game and provide a secure billing system, amongst other roles.

In StarQuest Online, players can assume the persona of a character living, exploring, fighting, and possibly dying in the 23rd Century. As an intrepid Starfleet officer, swashbuckling pirate, devious smuggler, deadly bounty hunter, wealthy merchant, or ordinary civilian, players shape this world and its history into whatever they wish.

There are over 17,000 star systems in StarQuest Online, and approximately 100,000 individual planets. Star positions were taken from Hipparcos satellite data for positional accuracy. Each planet was then created using a stellar dust accretion program based on the mass of each star. There are over 150 non-player character (NPC) races, and many other alien creatures inhabiting these worlds. Players can choose from three unique races when creating their characters. Several different classes of starships are available for players to command, explore, and battle with.
