  • intelgamer reviewer Mike "StarHawk" Hawks has recently had a look at the demo for the upcoming game, 'Star Trek: Deep Space Nine - The Fallen'. Awarding it 95%. Hawks says the game has "Great special effects, Great sounds, Wonderful music" but notes on the lack of a save function, speech or in-depth briefing.

  • have awarded 'Star Trek: New Worlds' a solid 70 in their recent review of the game, but saying that "it had the potential to become a truly great strategy game. It offers great graphics, a good story, and a unique approach to Star Trek gaming (through the use of ground-based vehicles). Unfortunately, there are too many shortcomings for this game to end up as anything but mediocre."

  • Scifi Gaming has reviewed 'Star Trek: Voyager - Elite Force'. Awarding it an overall score of 8, they conclude by saying: "Elite Force is not perfect, but it's great to play, which is what really counts. The attention to detail in the game is superb, and Trek fans should have a field day with this one. Plus the raw Quake-style gameplay should easily attract other FPS fans who should be quite satisfied with the action that's offered here. But let's hope for a sequel that's a bit more than just a mindless blastfest. Still, taking criticisms into account, Elite Force is hands down one of the best executed Trek games to ever grace the PC."

  • The Firing Squad have also reviewed 'Elite Force', awarding it 80%. While he found it to be too linear and short, he was overall positive about the game, adding that it didn't disapoint.

  • The Firing Squad has also posted 70 new screenshots of 'Star Trek: Deep Space Nine: The Fallen'.

  • has published a brief interview with Raven Software's James Monroe where he speaks about the upcoming release of the developers tools for Elite Force.

  • Decipher has again updated its site with news about the upcoming DecipherCon as well as Enhanced Premiere FAQs (in PDF)
