  • Raven Software has released the playable demo for one of the most highly anticipated Trek games of the year: first-person shooter 'Voyager: Elite Force'. The demo is currently available at the File Planet, who describe it as follows:

    Star Trek: Voyager - Elite Force is the ultimate, sci-fi first person shooter using the Quake III: Arena engine. The first game based on the Star Trek: Voyager universe, Elite Force pits players against a multitude of Star Trek enemies, including the relentless Borg and never-before-seen aliens, in intense single-player and multiplayer combat missions.

    The demo has a file size of 115.2 MB, and can be obtained at this location, which also mentions the game's minimum system requirements - a PII-233, 64 MB RAM and a 3D Accelator.

  • While you're downloading, you might want to check out the first parts of the Trek Nation's Electronics Entertainment Expo report, written by Jeff 'Koganuts' Koga. Due to a number of reasons the report went up quite a bit later than the actual expo, which took place in May, but it still allows for an interesting read. The report includes several features on 'Voyager: Elite Force', including an interview with Activision Associate Producer Steve Elwell, an interview with Raven Software Character Modeler & Animator Rob Gee, and a report of the appearance by 'Voyager' star Kate Mulgrew. All three articles contain lots of screenshots and in-depth info on the game, so they're well worth checking out.

  • The first review of the demo is already up at Hard News. In it, Dave awards the demo a 9, praising everything from graphics to sound to actual gameplay.

  • Finally, Geoff Keighley at GameSlice has put up a very in-depth interview with Raven's Kenn Hoekstra, talking about the many Trek games to be released in the coming months, game licensing, and some of Raven's other games.
