  • Raven Software's hit, 'Star Trek: Voyager - Elite Force' is going to come to the Play Station, it seems. It's been announced that PS2 developer Majesco has picked up the rights to distribute the port of the Quake III Arena-powered PC first-person shooter. Pipe Dream Interactive, an in-house development team for Majesco, will be handling the game's port from the PC to the PS2. The game is expected to ship in the fall of this year.

  • The Daily Radar has new screenshots from the upcoming 'Elite Force' expansion pack.

  • The official bridge commander site has posted a new 'Screenshot of the Week'.

  • ZDNet's Gamespot has posted a review of 'Star Trek: Away Team'. Rating it 5.5 or 'mediocre', Bruce Geryk concluded with "Had Star Trek Away Team incorporated real character building, included better enemy AI (as well as any AI whatsoever for your own units), allowed for more freedom in both equipment use and discovery, and required actual small-unit tactics instead of mindless sprinting and head-on encounters or tedious puzzle-solving, it could have been a good strategy game."

  • Section31 has also posted a review if 'Away Team'. Reviewer Tim Hansen was slightly more forgiving than his Gamespot counterpart, rating it 14/20. He, too had problems with the game's AI - "The biggest problem with Away Team is the horrible AI and lack of actual character building. The AI, being the game's biggest issue, is pathetically weak. In all, this game plays like a "point and click" episode on TNG with the occasional pause for popcorn."

  • Decipher, makers of the Star Trek CCG, have announced that the Trek CCGs have come in third in a recent Scrye Magazine reader's poll, slipping past contenders such as 'Pokemon'. Decipher had two other card series in the top 5.
