  • The Digital Game Developer has posted an interview with 'Star Trek: Voyager – Elite Force' project leader, Brian Pelletier. In it, Pelletier talks about creating the team AI, ICARUS and the restrictions imposed by Paramount on the game.

  • John "JCal" Callaham of Stomped has interviewed Kenn Hoekstra of the 'Elite Force' project team. Hoekstra answers questions on several subjects, including the shortness of the game and the possibility for a 'Gold Eddition'.

  • Raven Software programmer James Monroe has released a newer version of the Radiant level editor for Star Trek: Voyager - Elite Force, which is available for download at VoyagerEliteForce.com and fixes a bug where the program wouldn't load JPEG files if no TGA was present.

  • Brian of Game Revolution has reviewed "Star Trek: New Worlds" for the PC. Overall, he was very disappointed with the game, as shown by his opening remark "What was wrong with the old worlds?" and the awarded rating of 'D'.

  • 3D GameForce reviewer Bartosz "MFC4215" Pukalski has also had a look at 'New Worlds'. He was slightly more positive, awarding it a 5.5 out of 10, but concluding on "with so many RTS games out there I suggest that you try another, because this game really can't compare to some of the others. Sure it has good graphics, but the gameplay is not to my liking. I would prefer to play Dark Reign 2 to this game."

  • Sharky Games is the first of several 'Elite Force' reviews today. They award it 7/10, finding it to be a good game but, like many reviewers, commenting on the short length.

  • The second 'Elite Force' review today is taken from Maximum 3D, where Scott Myers awarded it 4.5 stars and the Editor's Choice.

  • Action Trip has the honor of review number three. Uros "2Lions" Jojic awards the game 88%.

  • Multiplayer online-Gaming has the honor of review number four, Kevin Jenkins awarding it 4 and a half stars.

  • Review number four comes to us from ESC Mag, with reviewer Erich Becker awarding it a staggering 10 out of 10 keys.

  • The fifth and final review comes courtesty of Roger at Tech Gods, who awards the game 9/10.
