It’s kinda like The Sims, but it’s not at all like The Sims. Coming this winter to your PC… Star Trek: Borg Assimilator, a world-building sim where you control the Borg Collective in their attempts to conquer all things good and beautiful. Resisting the press release is futile.
News about Star Trek and any of it’s many spin-offs, movies, books, and more.

There’s nothing truly new here, friends. We’ve already reported that when Star Trek: The Motion Picture is finally released on DVD (sometime this year, but nobody is willing to be more specific), it’ll be prettier than before, having received a Star Wars-style makeover. Here, then, are six more screenshots showing off their new handiwork.
Billy writes, This is as ever unconfirmed, but theres a story here with some more concrete rumours/insider info. I think it could be dodgy, unless the writers are fans of bad 80s bands (T’Pau the vulcan..?) The fact that they claim it happens on an Enterprise, without Robert April at the helm in the prequel series does seem a bit odd. It’s an interesting read, but don’t bet on this panning out.
It’s a double-stuff sized review this week! Click “Read More” for the whole enchilada.
This article on the official Trek web site has synopses of the last three episodes of Voyager before the two-hour series finale. If the crew is returning to Earth at all, they’re doing it in that finale; these last three episodes look pretty run-of-the-mill to me. Below is a cynical view of what might happen after the crew returns to Earth…
First off, my apologies for posting this on Friday and not Thursday. I had stuff on Wednesday night and had to tape Star Trek: Voyager.
Every now and then we get to see glimpses of why the opening credits mention “Based on ‘Star Trek’ created by Gene Roddenberry.”
Tonight was one of those glimpses. Gene’s ground-breaking premise, a starship crew (and a federation) made up of, not only, different races, but different species. And they could overcome anything one episode at a time.
Jump forward a hundred years (Star Trek time that is) and we find the poor hapless U.S.S. Voyager, billions of miles from home. Can the Federation’s high-minded ideals and philosophies work when you don’t have the firepower to back up your morality?
In standard Voyager heavy-handedness, it does. Preachy, but still ‘Star Trek’ down to the warp core.

There was \”Star Trek: The Motion Picture,\” and it was, well, so-so.
Then there was the re-do with added footage that ABC aired on TV
in the 80s, which was subsequently released on video, and it wasn\’t too bad.
Now, director Robert Wise is finally preparing the \”director\’s cut\” version,
which he says won\’t suck nearly as much.
(Thanks to /. for this story.)
Remember the good old days (i.e. just a few years ago) when we could count on all Star Trek games to, well, suck? Then we got “Voyager: Elite Force,” and now we’re getting this preview of DS9: Dominion Wars, which looks to be another pretty darn cool game.
