Regarding Star Trek 25th Anniversary, does anyone know a way to defeat the Klingon battle cruiser that's about 3 quarters of the game through? Apparently, the storyline forks in two different directions if you beat them or if they beat you. Unfortunately, it's nearly impossible to beat them.

But Elite Force I and II aren't that lousy

I kinda liked Birth of the Federation and Starship Creator for a while, too, until I got bored with them, which didn't take long. They became monotonous pretty quickly.

Six TNG-era Star Trek games just beamed into GOG's catalog, as part of the Star Trek Day celebrations.

First up, you have the long-desired and much-beloved Star Trek: Voyager game, Elite Force, followed by it's TNG-oriented sequel Elite Force 2. The fun continues with the phenomenal Bridge Commander, which takes place between TNG films and still has a rabid fanbase that uses mods to enjoy expanded gameplay experiences and new ships. Then you have the middle-of-the-road Starfleet Command 3, a modernized TNG-take on the classic Interplay TOS games derived from the FASA RPGs. Finishing off this batch of Star Trek games, you have two that were mostly considered to be bad by anyone who played them, Away Team and Hidden Evil. Away Team is a run-and-gun isometric strategy game that you will only enjoy if you are a die-hard TNG-centric Trekkie, who wants something to play. Hidden Evil is a point-and-click adventure in the vein of The Journeyman Project and was made by the same devs, which takes place after the Insurrection film and involves the places and people from that.

Coming soon are two of the most loved RTS Star Trek PC games, Armada and it's sequel Armada 2. It's not known why these two were not included in this batch of games, but it may be due to compatibility issues with the latest hardware/software.

I have confirmed that the Elite Force and Starfleet Command 3 games do include the expansions and the Nemesis DLC for SC3 is still easily downloaded from various places on the web, so you can enjoy the full game. Armada and Armada 2 are being held up for QC checking, though the original release of Armada 2 seems to be working fine for most people on Windows 10, while Armada is not really playable.

🤣 no it isn't. it's one of those tank control 3d character on still background adventures which was always an awkwardly controlled, camera-angle-fighting, frustrating game to play (it's more like Resident EvilEvil Dead Hail To The King). Definitely not Presto's finest.
