Let’s celebrate Star Trek Day in the best way possible, by bringing back and enjoying some of the best classic Star Trek games now available on GOG.COM!

This year marks the 55th anniversary of the first Star Trek show airing on TV as well as the 100th birthday of the late Gene Roddenberry, who imagined a future in which people have overcome their differences and gone on to explore strange new worlds and seek out new life and new civilizations.

What started as a quirky sci-fi TV show in the ’60s, has become one of the biggest and most recognizable franchises in Western entertainment. 55 years, 11 TV and streaming series, and 13 blockbuster movies later, the Star Trek universe is still growing with unique characters, beautifully designed starships, alien races, and amazing adventures that bring us joy and hope for a better future.

Games: the final frontier
Star Trek also made its mark on the world of video games. The first text-based computer games set in the universe are dated back to 1971, with many official and even more unofficial releases appearing in arcades, on Apple I and II computers, various models of Atari, the Commodore 64, and all the way to DOS and Windows PCs.

You might already know about the adventure games Star Trek: 25th Anniversary and Judgment Rites but an absolute golden era of Star Trek games began at the end of the ’90s and the beginning of the 2000s with new games landing every few months. Unfortunately, many of those titles have become unavailable in recent years and are basically unplayable on modern machines.

This changes now with 6 classic Star]”>Star[/url] Trek games releasing for the first time in digital distribution on GOG.COM.

Discover 6 classic Star Trek games
Preserving classic games is very close to our hearts, so we made sure that these games are up to date, running smoothly on Windows 10, and some of them even offer a working LAN multiplayer.

Every game from this list will give you a unique opportunity to immerse yourself into the world of Star Trek, interact with beloved characters, and explore new parts of the universe.

In Star Trek: Voyager - Elite Force you become a security officer on board of USS Voyager, assigned to a new special unit called the Hazard Team. Together with AI-controlled crewmates, you take on the most dangerous missions, including fighting the Borg. Between the missions, you can explore the ship and interact with the well-known bridge crew with all the actors reprising their roles.

Star Trek: Elite Force II takes the first-person shooter experience to the next level with improved visuals (it’s one of the best-looking games using the Quake III Arena engine), and a set of new missions to complete. This time, your character is being transferred to serve on Enterprise-E where you receive your orders from Captain Jean-Luc Picard himself!

Star Trek: Hidden Evil also gives you a chance to assist Captain Picard and Lt. Cmdr. Data with both Patrick Stewart and Brent Spiner reprising their roles. In this third-person adventure game, you take the role of Ensign Sovok and explore alien ruins and try to save your team before the conniving Romulans make use of an ancient biological weapon.

This next game is perfect for everyone wanting to run special operations on new planets. Star Trek: Away Team is an isometric turn-based tactical game influenced by titles like Commandos and the X-Com series. You need to pick the best away team for each mission and lead its members through dangerous covert operations across locations like the Klingon homeworld, a Borg cube, and Starfleet Academy.

Star Trek: Starfleet Command III gives you a tactical challenge of a completely different scale. In this game, you play the story campaign as a Klingon, Romulan, or Federation captain. Your task is to customize your starship and lead it into space battles while uncovering a plot around the construction of the first Klingon-Federation space station.

Finally, Star Trek: Bridge Commander is probably the most immersive Star Trek gaming experience as it sits you in an actual captain’s chair, surrounded by a crew waiting for your orders. Combat is not the main focus of this title as you spend a lot of time talking to your crew, managing the ship, exploring space, assisting endangered colonies, and conducting diplomatic negotiations.

Make it so!
We hope you’ll enjoy these 6 classic Star Trek games, all updated to work on modern computers, and now available on GOG.COM. In addition, two real-time strategy titles, Star Trek: Armada and Star Trek: Armada II are coming soon and you can now add them to your wishlists.

As every game on this list offers you a different experience and a chance to meet some of your favorite characters, let us know in the comments which one is your favorite and why!

Elite Force? Really?! Finally :D!
wizisi2k: the Elite Force games, starfleet command III, and Bridge Commander are all online MP thru galaxy, right?
Plokite_Wolf: No.
Thanks-that determines which one I get.
This release announcement is really fascinating. I will defnitely get those Elite Force games.
Really happy to see Away Team here as I've been wanting to get it for ages... but yeesh, £8 for a game first released in 2001? For comparison, Desperados: Wanted Dead or Alive - a similar style of game released the same year - is only half that. Don't want to sound ungrateful but I think I'll wait for a discount.
morolf: Too expensive for games that are 20 years old, will only buy on sale.
Could be two reasons for that.

1. licensed games
2. Activision and the usual greed

phaolo: - ST Armada I
IMO, Armada 2 is worth it just for the mod alone, which brings the game up to modern standards. I can't play the originals anymore without this mod.
Wow, what a catch!
Although I am not a Star Trek fan, I know many people who will be delighted by these releases.

Thank you!
I am glad Activision allowed to release these here.
I really miss the Microprose Games, Klingon Academy, Bord and Klingon.

The Activision ones run even as Disc Version on Win10 Anyway except for Armada 1 and 2

and btw. the 80th Star Trek Games would be nice too
high rated
"Thank you for dealing with the license holders, making hard-to-find classic games available again and making them run on modern machines - but why not more of them and why are you demanding I pay money for these old games?"

- The GOG comments section
phaolo: Cool, but which ones are the best?
For now, after checking some reviews, I'm opting for:
- ST Elite Force II
- ST Armada I
- ST Starfleet Command III (instead of the first one)
- ST Bridge Commander (maybe?)
Elite Force 1 is better than 2 in my opinion. Better story, better levels, feels a bit like a "lost" Voyager movie. Away Team is by far my favorite of the whole bunch, probably my favorite Trek game in general. Yeah, the stun setting can be abused to brute force through some missions, but stealth is still fun, I really liked the story, all the new characters and picking your away team for every mission. And the appeariances from TNG characters feel organic, without taking the focus away from the new crew.

Bridge Commander is quite unique and great fun to play, although I feel that because they focused so much on the idea that it's You in the role of You in the captain's chair, the character you're playing is kinda... nonexistant. You really need to sort of fill in that blank with your imagination.

I don't really remember Hidden Evil well at all. I know I did not dislike it, but I guess it clearly wasn't memorable :D
morolf: Too expensive for games that are 20 years old, will only buy on sale.
timppu: And then people wonder why GOG releases so "few" old games... :(
Too be honest, I thought of buying Elite Force games right away, but then I realized I am not in the mood for playing them right away, so I will rather save my money for Psychonauts 2.
Breja: Elite Force 1 is better than 2 in my opinion. Better story, better levels, feels a bit like a "lost" Voyager movie.
Maybe, but Voyager was the crappiest Trek series (discounting new "series" which I haven't touched, and probably never will), so that's not high recommendation.

Cant wait for the armada games but might pick up Elite forces as i have heard good things about them.

Just wish that Birth of the federation could be released as my favourite star trek game of all time but that was released by Microprose so god knows who owns the licence now.
low rated
odd, did gog forget the discounts?
I was getting happily crazy when I have suddenly seen that GOG now gives us so many good old Star Trek videogame classics to buy. I am not a real die-hard Star Trek fan, but I always loved to watch an episode once in a while on TV, as I enjoy it’s sci-fi setting, and I am happy that all these great games are coming back now. I have had extreme fun playing the first Elite Force game, which has a very good and immersive singleplayer campaign, as well as a nice Quake III style multiplayer with challenging bots, which I have played the hell out of. I never got to play the second game, but I am happy to do this with both games now.

Another game that I have already placed on my Wishlist, and of which I have only played the demo version until now, is Bridge Commander. Up to this day, I remember the incredible chills that I have gotten from the demo, when suddenly Captain Jean-Luc Picard himself entered the Bridge and took place on a chair right beside me. And thanks to GOG I will now have the ability to not just enjoy this chill again, but to finally take full command of an entire federation vessel in a full campaign, not to mention that this game also offers skirmish battles, in which you can even take command of non-federation vessels, at least from what I remember when playing the demo version.

I have also added both Armada games to my Wishlist, which I have never played before, as they offer plenty of different races, nice strategy and a campaign for every race, plus a skirmish option for singleplayer. Again, I have only seen screenshots from these games and have read about them, but I am also very thankful that soon I am able to enjoy them all myself. Being a Star Wars: Empire At War veteran, I do not even dare that the space is actually just 2D, because I always liked playing it this way. All I want is just another good strategy game with a big sci-fi movie license behind it and so this is just what I was searching for.

The last game that I have also placed on my Wishlist is Away Team. I never was a fan of the WW2 based Commandos series, but this kind of clone seems very fun and challenging to me, especially because it seems that you can plan everything yourself, like which team members you want to take for the mission. And being a Jagged Alliance 2 veteran as well, I just love to play something quite similar from the Star Trek universe.

GOG, thank you so much for bringing all these fascinating classics to your store! I just hope that you can continue this great work, instead of keep filling us with modern independent videogames that are not the reason of why I am a member of this site.

I liked it :P

Sure, it wasn't the greatest overall, but I still enjoy watching it, I like the characters, and I think it had plenty of fantastic episodes. Latent Image, Nothing Human, Drone, Barge of the Dead, Mortal Coil, Living Witness, Blink of an Eye... those and others I would count among the best from all Trek shows. So yeah, for me that is a pretty high recommendation.
