Star Trek Games

I love computer games and pretty much am a Steam junkie. One thing seriously missing of course is Star Trek. I have not played one since "TNG A Final Unity" and the Starfleet Command games.

What other Star Trek games are there that you can still buy and run with latest Windows etc? Is Star Trek Online any good?

Re: Star Trek Games

Basically any Activision Trek game will run on Windows 7 or 8. So Armada 1 & 2, Elite force 1 & 2, Bridge Commander, Away team. Interplay's Starfleet Academy does too, but it's sequel Klingon Academy doesn't wtihout fixes.

So for my recommendations, Bridge cmmander will most likely be like Starfleet Command for you. If you're into adventure probably the Elite force series (but they're FPS). Armada 1 and 2 are raw command & conquer style strategy games.

STO's okay in small doses. It's free to play, so no harm in giving it a try.

Will they? I can't get Armada 1 to run - just get the splash screen then nothing. Any suggestions? (Windows 8.)

I was getting a memory error too until I tried running it in compatibility mode (XP SP3).
