Star Trek discussion

There is a thread about Star Wars, so I'm creating one about Star Trek.
Anything Star Trek, not just games.


First, I've been looking around for downloadable Star Trek games to no avail. It would seem that I'm not the best at taking care of my old PC game media, and as such am not able to readily locate my Armada, Armada II, Away Team or A Final Unity CDs.

Fortunately, I often made disc images of games that I own, but it still would be rather nice if I could buy these online, or to expand my library with such as Starfleet Command or Bridge Commander.

  • @DAISHI said: Some of the old Star Trek Original Series adventure games were tops. That 25th Anniversary one is awesome.


    Agreed, those are great... I love how they're even voiced by the original actors.

    I also like the cheesy FMV ones, like the Klingon one... that comes with that incredibly lame CD containing Klingon language learning lessons - now that I think of it, I believe I still have that CD in my closet somewhere :D

  • My next Let's Play is definitely the 25th Anniversary :D

  • @doodo! said: Thanks for sharing with me. Still, I think we could respect one another opinions. But I was immature just our of boredom, and there you have it. We have a strange sense of amusement.

    I apologize, but I get annoyed by some "Trekkies" dismiss the movie out of hand. It just seems like a lot of Trek fans are forgetting one of the key philosophies of the Trek universe. IDIC. Infinite Diversity in Infinite Combinations.

    Now, I will say this. At least you gave it a chance. I do know someone who absolutely refuses to watch it and has even left the room when his brother played it.

    :) It's easier to be human, than it isn't. So I was human. Well, than it is to try not to be human. No hard feelings. I'm weird, I mean no complex, or conceit, I can change my opinions, feelings, within the hour or 5 minutes.

    I don't feel real, nothing feels absolute. I assume if I saw the movie in a different light I would enjoy it. These words are superficial. I know , I like you guys, I want to be your friends, but you can't really hold me to my words, XD can you hold me to that?

    Peace everyone. I do have a few core beliefs, I do, but not when it comes to arguing some one else's interests, opinions. Unless, I think that person is twisted and evil. :D

    I think the other side should only be accessed when necessarily and both sides should be real, true, honest, thought about, if possible pure.

  • I just think the new Star Trek lost some of the soul that the old ones had.

  • Of course it did. It wasn't the same person nor team that made it. That doesn't mean it doesn't have soul at all, though.

  • Loss of soul is only a product of the fact that we are moving into the future, a place where people have no soul or morals, but do have tons of neat gadgets if Red vs. Blue is to be believed as an authority on the subject. Which they probably aren't.

  • @MusicallyInspired said: Of course it did. It wasn't the same person nor team that made it. That doesn't mean it doesn't have soul at all, though.

    Yeah but the loss of it means something especially to people who grew up with it. I don't think it's too far right of the arguments being held in the King's Quest forum about 'what is' King's Quest.

  • That's a good point. However, King's Quest doesn't have NEAR the amount of material that Star Trek does. Star Trek had five iterations of spin-off shows with multiple seasons worth of stories, a cartoon, 10 full length feature films, dozens upon dozens of video games, countless novels, comics, and parodies as well as fan fiction, consistent multiple conventions a year, and more and it all lasted for decades and is still going strong despite the Abrams reboot. King's Quest had a fraction of that. I think Star Trek is allowed to be a little bit different now. King's Quest barely had over a decade's worth of games with only 8 titles. It never had a chance to reach the potential it could have.

  • Yeah. I won't argue that. The truth is that Star Trek was choking on itself. The fans weren't happy even when producers gave them what they thought they wanted. The throwback Enterprise never had the right chemistry after the first season, and it went with long arcs over short ones. Voyager stumbled hard toward the end of its run. And DS9, love it though I did, put Trek on a path I don't think was sustainable. Trek isn't inherently going to reach the action heights of BS9 or Galactica, not in that universe. The tone for Trek in that vein was set.

    Every true Trek fan knows that Star Trek was dying slowly, and we were partly culpable. After Enterprise we were in the midst of having the first time in a long time where there was NO Trek on television and no movies planned. People were saying maybe the franchise needed a rest for a while. And, I think that especially in that light, it's good to have a fresh approach to classic characters. It's not like this iteration damages the standard Trek continuity or leaves no room to go back to that universe in the future.
