'Elite Force II' box - courtesy Amazon.comThe Star Trek: Elite Force II computer game will hit stores later this month.

Activision's sequel to 2000's Star Trek: Voyager: Elite Force has "gone gold", according to a press release at Ritualistic.com. The phrase "gone gold" means that all beta testing on the game has been completed and it is ready to be shipped off for duplication.

Developed by Ritual Entertainment, Elite Force II begins on board the USS Voyager during the events of the series finale, "Endgame". Taking the guise of Hazard Team member Alexander Munro, the player must help Voyager escape from the Borg Sphere as it hurtles towards the Alpha Quadrant.

After Voyager's triumphant homecoming, Lieutenant Munro is stationed at Starfleet Academy before moving on to the Enterprise-E. It is on the Enterprise that the main storyline kicks into gear: a mysterious new alien race is launching attacks on starships and colonies. Numerous Trek alumni provide voices for the game, including Patrick Stewart and Tim Russ as Jean-Luc Picard and Tuvok, respectively.

Elite Force II, which is said to be twice as long as the original, features 12 missions, each with seven levels; 14 different weapons, including the Bat'leth, sniper rifle and grenade launcher; and alien races such as the Romulans, Klingons, the Borg and a new species, the Exomorphs.
