In celebration of 55 years of Star Trek, some of the most iconic games to the franchise are being updated to work on modern systems. Classic PC titles 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 are available now on GOG. Additionally, Star Trek: Armada and Star Trek: Armada II are coming to the service in the near future.
Star Trek: Voyager – Elite Force drops you into the shoes of a security officer on board the USS Voyager, as a member of the Hazard Team. There, you and AI-controlled teammates will have to combat the Borg. Star Trek: Elite Force II is the follow-up to Elite Force, and boasts “improved visuals” while you’re taken to serve on the Enterprise-E, with Captain Jean-Luc Picard in the game and acting as your superior in this title.
Star Trek: Hidden Evil also sees Picard — played by Patrick Stewart once again — in the game, alongside Lt. Cmdr. Data (Brent Spiner). Hidden Evil is a third-person adventure game that has players take on the role of Ensign Sovok as they explore alien ruins and combat Romulans looking to resurrect an ancient biological weapon.
Star Trek: Starfleet Command III is a more tactical game than the other additions on this list. In Starfleet Command III, you can play through the campaign as either a Klingon, Roman, or a Federation captain, and can head into various battles against opponents while looking to dominate all of space. Finally, Star Trek: Bridge Commander places you in the captain’s chair and allows you to manage the ship, explore space, and get the full Star Trek experience.
