Game Info

Star Trek Voyager Eliteforce is a beautiful first person shooter, thematically located in the Star Trek Voyager universe. It was developed by Raven Software, published by Activision on 20th of September 2000. The game was released for Windows, Linux, MacOS and even Playstation 2. On 9th of September 2021, so roughly 21 years later, to honor the occasion of 55 years of Star Trek, the game got re-released on GOG. This however, only includes the Windows version.

The game is based on the Quake III Arena engine, which means that many of the things said here also apply to Quake 3 Arena. It also works the other way around. The game itself is divided into the single-player and the “Holomatch”, i.e. the multi-player. Everything that is written here applies primarily to the Holomatch. However, most of the commands and settings can be applied to both equally, or have an effect on both (e.g. the brightness settings).

Here are some first impressions of the game's gameplay:
