A frustration for fans of classic PC games is that they become unplayable on modern computers, or maybe you can’t find those long-lost game discs. But this will no longer be a problem for a selection of some favorite Star Trek games of the past.
Activision Star Trek games on GOG.com
The digital storefront GOG.COM and Activision are celebrating Star Trek Day by bringing some of the franchise’s favorite and critically acclaimed video games back, updated to work on modern operating systems. According to GOG “Preserving classic games is at the very (reactor) core” of their business and they have set their engineering crew to make sure that all of these games are up-to-date and running smoothly on Windows 10. Some of the titles even work on LAN multiplayer.
The six classic Star Trek games now available on the GOG.COM store include:
Star Trek: Voyager – Elite Force – a first-person shooter set onboard the USS Voyager where you must take on some of the most dangerous special missions.
Star Trek: Elite Force II – a stunning sequel set on Enterprise-E where you get your orders from Captain Jean-Luc Picard himself!
Star Trek: Hidden Evil – a third-person adventure game with both Patrick Stewart and Brent Spiner reprising their roles as Captain Picard and Lt. Cmdr. Data.
Star Trek: Away Team – an isometric turn-based tactical game influenced by titles like Commandos and the X-Com series.
