How many Star Trek games have been good?
 
How many Star Trek games have been good? It seems like star Wars had a better track record then Star Trek in video games.

There have been about five good Star Trek games.

I liked the Starfleet Academy game as well as the Elite Force ones.

There are some good Star Trek games. Unfortunately they're all between 10 and 20 years old, and some of them at the far end of that spectrum won't work natively on modern computers without a lot of messing around in DosBox. If something like ScummVM had support for 'Judgement Rites' and 'A Final Unity', I would be in Trek gaming heaven.

Armada I, Klingon Academy for me.

Birth of the Federation, Armada I and Star Trek Online I've enjoyed a lot.

Dominion Wars might have been good if it wasn't so buggy/crash-prone.

I really liked Elite Force. That one had a lot of replay value.

I still replay Elite Force from time to time. :) Never played the sequel though, is it worth picking up?

It's more of the same, really, but with a longer story and better graphics.

But the walking bit has the camera going from side to side. Makes me feel nauseous. [/filburt]

The original Elite Force was fantastic.

Other than that? Some have been alright. None have been "good" IMHO.

I'd kill for them to make an Elite Force III and do it properly. EF2 suffered from it being the game released the day before Activision dropped the license and sued Paramount/Viacom for damaging the Trek brand. :S

Several. 25th Anniversary, Judgment Rites, A Final Unity and Elite Force are terrific. Birth of the Federation, Klingon Academy, Starfleet Command, Generations and The Fallen are all good. The rest range from tolerable to awful.

A Final Unity and Elite Force were the only ones I liked.

Star Wars has much better games.
