  • Evil Avatar has announced the winner of their Signed Elite Force Give-Away.

  • Two new screenshots of 'Star Trek: Bridge Commander' are now online at 'The Bridge'.

  • Gamespot has posted a preview of upcoming release, 'Deep Space Nine: Dominion Wars'. Overall, they seemed pretty taken with the game, calling it "a friendlier version of Starfleet Command" with excellent visuals.

  • Another two 'Star Trek: Away Team' reviews today. First up is Gamepower's Marc Dultz who gave it a three out of four. He finished his review with the comments:

    Despite its minor frustrations, Away Team is still one of the more enjoyable additions to the ever-growing library of Star Trek games. While it won't win any awards for originality, Trekkers and die-hard strategy gamers will agree that this is one game that deserves to be mentioned proudly at Starfleet Command.

  • Meanwhile, TrekWeb's Ken R. Miller has posted his review of the game. Less positive, he rated it a 2 out of 4, concluding with the thoughts:

    For the Star Trek fan, Away Team will provide some solid entertainment for a few days. The game is pretty good if you can get past the terrible A.I. and the annoying screams of your field lemmings. But if you are looking for a solid strategy game with team-based play, youíre better off with the newly released Fallout: Tactics or even an old copy of X-com. Fallout has more levels, offers the player more team members to work with, and a more satisfying gameplay experience overall.

  • Decipher, makers of the Star Trek customisable card game, have announced a new Voyager card set. Containing of 201-cards in total, the set will consist of a starter kit and several expansion packs. More details on the new set can be found by following this link.
