30 thoughts on “Make It So: The 10 Best Star Trek Games in the Quadrant”

Wow, it’s disappointing that Star Trek Legacy didn’t make the list.

Here are some comments from other readers:

“Whoever created this list is foolish. I can understand not including DS9 Dom wars because it was extremely buggy, but come on, Starfleet Academy deserves a higher spot! And why is the original Starfleet Command ranked so low? That’s just terrible!” – Dizzle

“Does anyone know if I can somehow get Birth of the Federation on my PS4?” – Hupy A Bevis

“Starfleet Academy was considered a disappointment? I remember it making a big impact back in the day, especially because of its FMV story. There were many interesting missions as well.” – SeekerLancer

“I really enjoy Birth of the Federation, although it can be a bit tedious. I’m also intrigued by the Star Trek mod for Civ IV. The Star Trek Armada 3 mod for Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion looks amazing, but I think I prefer 4x games over real-time strategy games.” – Joel Hardman

“I’m glad to discover that there are some good Star Trek games out there. I had always heard they were all terrible.” – Joel Hardman

“Where is the best game: Star Trek Starfleet Command 2: Empires at War/Orion Pirates?” – XeaKon

“They used Starfleet Command to represent the entire series, I believe.” – Mrflappywilly

“This is an old article, but it’s incomplete without mentioning MTrek, probably the first online multiplayer Star Trek game ever. It’s still being played today because it’s so addictive.” – Richard McGornski

“The image used for Klingon Academy isn’t the actual box art picture. It’s a reproduction I made for my mod, Klingon Academy II (for Star Trek Armada II).” – Richard McGornski

“Thanks for pointing that out. I’ve changed the image to the actual box art and added a note about the mod in the description.” – TekRevue

“I would move Birth of the Federation to number one, put Legacy at number two, Klingon Academy at number three, Judgement Rites at number four, and Elite Force at number five. The rest can stay in a similar order, although I don’t think any of them deserve to be in the top ten… some of them are pretty bad.” – John A. Gray

“Klingon Academy, for sure. I loved using the anti-matter beam on the Dreadnought.” – David Rodolff

“There was a Star Trek game in 1976 that later evolved into a game called ‘Cube Wars.’ It was a grid-based game where you could battle Klingons or have a starbase. It was simple but lots of fun, even by today’s standards.” – John Min Lee

“That’s interesting! I’m retired now, but I used to write code for 3D flight simulators and aircraft modeling software for the USAF. I had nothing to do with the original game, but I rewrote it on my Radio Shack Color Computer II. It needed some animation, so I tinkered with assembly language. It was the most fun game my friend had ever played, but I never thought about marketing it. Later, my nephew and I used XNA to animate a version, but we got distracted before it was polished enough for others to play. I think what you’re looking for is Star Fleet I. It had text graphics, but it was similar to the old mainframe version.” – Wayne Shook

“The list omits Star Trek: Legacy, so I can’t take it seriously. Legacy is one of the best Star Trek games ever made. It received an 8.0 out of 10 when it was reviewed in the Official Xbox Magazine back in 2006, and in a retrospective review last year, the magazine called it ‘almost great.'”

“Here’s why Legacy is the best Star Trek game in my opinion:

– All five Trek Captains lent their voices to the game

– The game covers all five Trek TV series and all three Trek eras

– The story was written by D.C. Fontana, a highly respected Trek writer

– It features all the well-known ships in the Trek universe

– You can play as any of the four factions in deathmatches (Federation, Klingon, Romulan, or Borg)

– The developer released mod tools, allowing players to create their own content

I’ll admit that Legacy had a few issues, but they weren’t game-breaking. The problems the game faced, like bugs and unimplemented features, were a result of the publisher rushing the release. Despite these flaws, Legacy is still a remarkable game that is fun and holds up well.” – Wayne Shook
