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]https://www.gog.com/partner/startrek”>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!

Serpent1989: Cool, I cannot wait for getting the same feeling soon enough. :) Having no manual is maybe a bad point, but exploring the game in your own doesn't have to be that bad. In fact, I love learning the game while playing it at the same time and even if there are no extras included, I am happy enough for just being able to play these games, because there was a time when I have believed that they would never show up here at all. :)
Fortunately the manual can be found online - here for example. Not really necessary for gameplay, especially when you're familiar with the genre, but the short crew bios are a nice addition.

timppu: And then people wonder why GOG releases so "few" old games... :(
Yeah sorry, the prices just strike me as excessive. Ok, maybe justifiable for top games like Elite force. But something like Star Trek Away team may be an interesting curiosity (certainly would like to try it), but no way it's worth 10 Euros today. I can only assume they think there'll be enough suckers who will pay any price for anything as long as "Star Trek" is on it.
I'll eventually still buy them (preferably on sale, but if they don't go on sale this year, I might pay full price at least for Elite force 1/2 and Bridge commander, because they seem to be good games).
Was thinking about buying Armada I+II on disc, glad that i don't have to do that now :-)
Damn. I want them all. But around 60€ is too much for me in a single week :)
I am in the mood of good simulators so for now I will deal with Bridge Commander and Starfleet Command III. Bridge Commander as the bare minimum instant buy.
Anyway, the rest is wishlisted.

And I suspect that Elite Forces series will rise possitions in the most sold titles. Maybe not so strong as Diablo did, but in the vein of SWAT 4 or Soldier of Fortune

There are far older games for €10 both here and on Steam, just FYI.

Plokite_Wolf: There are far older games for €10 both here and on Steam, just FYI.
I doubt there are many games on Gog which are 20 years old or older and cost more. tbf you're right though that 9,99 Euros isn't an exceptional price anymore, but seems to be pretty standard for many titles. imo it's too high and I'll preferably buy on sale.
I am not sure. Are all of these titles GOG exclusives? The same as Diablo?

If they do. The slightly higher prices make sense in a bussiness point of view. But Anyway, all activision games here are more expensive than others and the discounts smaller.

But my point of view is that they do not cross the line of unreasonable prices for old franchised AAA games. Around 10 € per title is not too bad. It could be much worse, I presume.

You're probably right, and it's great Gog could get those titles at all. Still, I feel Activision is pretty greedy.To be blunt, games like Away team, Hidden evil or Armada weren't top titles in their respective genres even 20 years ago, and at least for them 10 Euros is too much imo. Not the fault of Gog though.

Gudadantza: I am not sure. Are all of these titles GOG exclusives? The same as Diablo?
At least for now, yes.
While it is always nice to have more Star Trek games, it is a pity that only very few of those games are localized here even though such localisations do exist. But that's the way Activision always acts and its' the same reason I won't buy.

Very nice! Elite Force has some of the most awesome mods I've ever had the pleasure to play.

wolfsite: Can confirm that Star Trek: Voyager - Elite Force does include the expansion pack.
Thank you for providing this vital information! IIRC the expansion was required for a lot of these mods.
No Klingon Honor Guard??? :(
This is great!!! DS9 The Fallen next please!! And while you're at it, Klingon Honor Guard for good measure!

Maybe, depending the sales of every game the prices will be modified a bit in the next months. Probably nothing revolutionary and of course discounts sales aside
Maybe a bit off-topic, but for someone who hasn't really sat down and watched Star Trek before, where should I start? The original? TNG? DS9, Voyager, the films?

I think I'd like to go back and watch some of this stuff, as I was always a Star Wars guy, but I never gave Trek a fair shake.
