Star Trek: The Next Generation – A Final Unity
Whilst most trekkies will be secretly licking their wounds and putting on a brave face after seeing the abysmal Generations (mumbling things about lack of budget, a deep and meaningful sub-plot that revolves around Picard actually wanting dear Tiberius dead while he's in the Nexus, and something about the next one being much better), they can now seek solace in the fact that the new release Star Trek - The Next Generation: A Final Unity from MicroProse is the best Star Trek adventure ever, and that all is well in the world as Voyager is now on the telly.
If the film was a bit of a let down, there is a silver lining in the galactic cloud. Rumour has it that Spectrum HoloByte (sister company of MicroProse, the people who have the license from Paramount to do all the TNG stuff) is currently working on a 3D space combat game.which is loosely based on the film Generations.
Although details are sketchy at the moment, it is understood that the player will be able to skoot around the universe, zapping Romulans and (this is the best bit) then land on one of the many planets or enemy craft while indulging in a bit of 3D shoot 'em up action Doom. Initial reports suggest that it will be more like System Shock with a fair bit of strategy and puzzle solving thrown in to remain in-keeping with the Trekkie tradition of "might isn't necessarily always right". Although it will use the Generations license, the game will not focus on the main plot of the film (you mean, there was one?), but will include most of the characters from the film (Malcolm McDowell is already rumoured to have expressed an interest) and will be jolly good. Make it so!
