It is powered by the Quake III Arena engine.
Plot (Single Player Mode)
The game is set in the Star Trek Voyager universe and the player takes over the role of Alexander or Alexandra Munro as member in a elite security force - The Hazard Team. When the ship becomes stranded in a mysterious graveyard of ships, it's up to Munro (naturally) to save the day.
Between the standard run-and-shoot-sequences of all first person shooters this game contains a vast amount of in-game cinematics to drive the plot forward. These film sequences are made with the game engine itself.
Users can also compete against each other in a separate game, referred to as Holomatch. This program allows you to play against bots or real human opponents, or mixtures of the two. Play in this mode is more similar to other FPSes than Single Player Mode.
In 2003, Ritual Entertainment made the sequel game
Star Trek Elite Force 2.
