It's Star Trek Day, and GOG.com and Activision are celebrating the 55th anniversary of Star Trek by re-releasing early 2000's-era classic Star Trek titles. These six titles are Star Trek: Voyager - Elite Force, Star Trek: Elite Force II, Star Trek: Bridge Commander, Star Trek: Starfleet Command III, Star Trek: Hidden Evil, and Star Trek: Away Team. All these games have been updated to work on Windows 10, have functioning LAN multiplayer (except for Hidden Evil, which is single-player only), and will run you a cool $9.99.
There are also two more games coming in the near future: Star Trek: Armada and Star Trek: Armada II. So if you're wanting to get your Star Trek RTS fix, you'll have to wait a little while longer. In the meantime, you can add them to your wishlist so you can be alerted to when they go live.
This marks over six years since Star Trek games first arrived on GOG, which doesn't really mean anything in particular but I do think it's pretty cool that after such a long time Trekkies are still receiving old/new games to play on GOG.
What should I play on Star Trek Day?
Good question! If you fancy yourself a first-person shooter, there's Star Trek: Voyager - Elite Force and Star Trek: Elite Force II, with the sequel having you take orders from Captain Jean-Luc Picard himself.
If you want to go on an adventure, Star Trek: Hidden Evil takes place after the events of Star Trek: Insurrection and has Patrick Stewart and Brent Spiner reprising their roles as Captain Picard and Lt. Cmdr. Data.
If you want to play a game like Commandos and X-Com with a Star Trek flavor, Star Trek: Away Team has you covered.
Want to play a simulation game that has RPG elements and you can customize your starship? Star Trek: Starfleet Command III is what you're looking for. There are also some space battles too if that's your thing.
Last but not least is Star Trek: Bridge Commander, which has you being the captain and having a crew waiting for your orders in this space combat simulation.
If you are looking at all these games and find yourself wanting a more traditional experience, there are some excellent board games that you can check out. Otherwise, be sure to let us know what games you find yourself playing on Star Trek Day. Live long and prosper!
