Elite Force rules, and I can't wait until Armada comes out - I couldn't get my discs to play quite right a year or so ago.

There have been lots of Trek games over the years, but they have only been sporadically available on modern PCs.  Hopefully this leads to a few more releases.

Besides Elite Force, do you have any recommendations for good ones?

Those are the only ones of this current GOG batch that I've played, but people love Bridge Commander.

There are some on Steam that are pretty good - Starfleet Academy is a fun flight sim, 25th Anniversary is a classic point and click style.

What I'm actually waiting on are Klingon and Borg, which are two FMV point and clicks with characters from the show.  Klingon Honor Guard is a FPS that I really liked as well.

Cool, thanks.

I wish they could have kept making more of the Elite Force series.

Not sure if anyone cares about star trek legacy on xbox360 but I figured I would mention it because I loved this game

I still have the Elite Force games for my PC... probably the most high end games my PC can run. lol.

As a huge Star Trek next gen era fan, I've been playing Star Trek games for quite a bit. Here's a list of my favorites outside Elite Force because... well those were damn near the best.

 - Star Trek TNG: Advanced Holodeck Tutorial (Game Gear)
 - Star Trek TNG: Echos from the Past (Genesis)
 - Star Trek Encounters (PS2)
 - Star Trek Conquest (PS2)
 - Star Trek Online (PC/PS4/5)

Ok... so the PS2 games listed... those are probably the only Bethesda games I've ever enjoyed. Odd, I know... maybe even sacrilege to some. Conquest is a strategy based game. Encounters is more story driven exploratory and action but only within the confines of the ship.

My favorite Star Trek game is Star Trek Online. I played the beta back in the day and was hooked. I preorderd the PC game from Amazon to get the Borg officer for my crew. I regret that purchase as it's now a free-to-play game, but wow. Fantastic game. The dev eventually ported it to PS4 and that's where I played ever since. I had to rebuy my Borg officer, but the game is still a lot of fun so many years later.
