@RogerRoger I have. I had it on PS2. I have a pc 'copy' that used to run to a point, but as I said, the laptop is toast and it doesn't support game pads anyway.

I kept the majority of my 2nd lot of PS2 stuff, but the launch model I had and traded went with everything I had for it before the platinum one came out and I bought stuff again 🙄

@KALofKRYPTON Ah, gotcha. If you hadn't played it before, I would've implored you to track down a copy as soon as possible. It's a great slice of Star Trek and the PS2 version does the job.

I like how the show name-dropped a couple of the game's original characters around the time it was being developed, and how it takes place in a pretty big stardate gap between episodes, allowing for it to essentially fit with canon. A couple years ago, when I watched Voyager for the first time in a long time, I paused between "Live Fast and Prosper" (VGR) and "Muse" (VGR) to play the game over a couple evenings (similar to how I played 24: The Game between watching Day Two and Day Three).

@RogerRoger well lets be fair it was on the PS2 after all, i'm surprised they was able to even get it running on that system

still bummed that the second game never got a console release though, that would have been an amazing game to have on the PS3 or 360

@KALofKRYPTON no blaspheming at all i LOVE the PS2 but lets be honest the PS2 was no where near as powerful as the P.C's of the time so it was still a great feat getting the game to run on it and for it to look almost as good as the P.C version

of course on the flip side there is the long load times BUT at the end of the day we got a really good port of a P.C game which didn't happen very often back then

@FullbringIchigo haha. All true.

But do you know what PC didn't get? Star Trek: Encounters! Possibly the least thematic Star Trek game ever made, but I do love it.

Ha! Look at the difference even in the HUD!

Jurot, the Hazard Team's Betazoid medic, is mentioned (and seen from behind, played by an extra) in the episode "Counterpoint" (VGR) where the telepathic members of the crew must be kept in transporter suspension. Rather tragically, after her expanded role in Elite Force, she must've died sometime before "Dragon's Teeth" (VGR) because in that episode, Janeway is faced with an issue of trust and comments "What I wouldn't give for a Betazoid about now."

That makes three Betazoids killed on that show; Stadi, Lon Suder and Jurot. Thank goodness they didn't kill off Deanna Troi in her guest episodes!

Of course, didn't even mention Chell, who is voiced in-game by the same actor who played him in "Learning Curve" (VGR) and "Repression" (VGR) and who is referenced multiple times in other episodes. Alexander Enberg, who plays Vorik in the show and the game, also voices Austin Chang.

Encyclopedic nerd knowledge aside, have you or @Fullbringlchigo played either Star Trek: Legacy or Star Trek: Hidden Evil on PC before? I'm considering them, but am not 100% sure.

@RogerRoger wow! Ah Suder! Great couple of episodes with him.

Never played Hidden Evil, not sure I've actually heard of it! I've had a go on Legacy on XBOX - greatest Trek game that PlayStation never got in some ways.

I think we've spoken about it before - but there's a guy who youtubes it a lot. From what I could tell, the game has been kept alive with a pretty strong modding community on PC. The Ultimate mod is the one I think he used to use.

@RogerRoger yep played and still own them both, Legacy is pure ship combat but it's pretty fun IF a bit on the shallow side in terms of content but if you get it on P.C there are plenty of mods that add new ships

as for Hidden Evil that's the one that's set right after Insurrection and it pretty much plays like the old Resident Evils, even down to the tank controls and pre-rendered backgrounds, it's worth a play but i wouldn't say it's a classic

@KALofKRYPTON i didn't care what timeline it was, it was Star Trek and it was on console that was enough for me plus it actually turned out to be fun but i don't think you can even buy it anymore and even if you could the online is as dead as a Red Shirt on an away mission with Kirk, Spock and Bones

@KALofKRYPTON Suder was fantastic. Whilst I understand why they did, it's a shame they wrapped him up so neatly in their rush to simultaneously end every single plot thread from the first two seasons (yes, that's right, I just semi-criticised Voyager... call a doctor).

Hidden Evil is an adventure game sequel to Star Trek: Insurrection. It stars Patrick Stewart and Brent Spiner alongside your original character, as the Enterprise-E returns to the Briar Patch to investigate an archaeological mystery unearthed when the Son'a begin to establish their new colony near the Ba'ku village. It got supremely-average reviews and might not even run on Windows 10, but I'm such a fan of that film so am kinda desperate for more.

Thanks for your Legacy thoughts; yeah, we have spoken about the mods for it before. I'd want the one which replaces all the sound effects with those of the TV shows, and all the bridge crew dialogue with clips from the entire cast. Hearing a proper shield impact "CHOOM!" and then Worf saying "Shields at 60% and holding!" just brings it all home.

@RogerRoger @FullbringIchigo Just checked out the Wiki for Hidden Evil - how did I ever miss that?!

@FullbringIchigo Ah, cool, thanks! You saying that Hidden Evil is worth a play tips me over the edge, I think. There's a decent copy on eBay I've had my eye on.

Also yeah, Star Trek D.A.C. is worth it for the Kobayashi Maru trophy alone.

@RogerRoger that's the one you actually had to cheat to get

i wish more games had Trophies like that

@FullbringIchigo Yep. Perhaps the greatest easter egg in a Star Trek game ever!

i guess that confirms a 3rd season after all those rumours about it being canned due to the CBS/Viacom merger
