Classic Star Trek games could be re-released on GOG Galaxy soon

Please wait...

A number of classic Trek games, including Star Trek Armada 1 & Armada 2, Star Trek Bridge Commander, and Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force and Elite Force 2 could be due for re-release on GOG Galaxy in the near future, with the game cards for titles on the platform recently being updated with new CBS copyright watermarks.

The spot was made by one of our community members, who noted that the imagery on the game cards had been updated within the last 24 hours, and all of them now show a new copyright watermark with the CBS and ARR marks. While CBS is the current rights holder to Star Trek, the franchise was still wholly owned under Paramount back when these games were originally released.

These games are still some of the most popular on GameFront for modders, despite not being available to purchase digitally anywhere as of right now. I'm personally pretty excited to see these get an official home. I own all of them except Away Team, and frankly, they're all stonkingly good Trek games.

It's also worth noting that a similar change to the cover art happened shortly before the release of the Tomb Raider reboot on GOG Galaxy. There's no official word on this yet though, so this is purely rumoured on our part for now, but here's hoping.

Elite Force 1, all day, every day.

I'd spend so much time on Holomatch just playing against bots and merging pk3s so I didn't hit the package limit. I felt like EF2 really limited what you could do mod wise in Holomatch, so I never played it as much, despite the prettier graphics.

Spent a fair amount of time in Bridge Commander, too. Kobayashi Maru was a pinnacle of what mods could do back then, and in fact, those games are what brought me to this site in the first place!

Yep, checked for myself, it's all of the Activision published games, minus 'ConQuest' that have gotten the art update. They also have unique background images for the game info pages in Galaxy.

I think I have all these games bar Bridge Commander. The only one that I still play (infrequently at the moment) is EF1 & the main reason for the infrequency is that there are no longer the numbers of players to maintain a healthy online game\community. The same 10ish players playing the same mods & maps day after day after day is not entertaining in the long run.

With that being said, this would appear to be good news if these games are re-released as it should attract some fresh meat! :) 

Not wanting to be the pessimist though, but I will believe it when I see it :)
