There are 3 other major (non)canon Star Trek stories:
1) Borg Q-Uest - unreleased interactive video-based board game video footage (TNG)
2) short films starring Q for Star Trek World Tour (1998/99)
3) Star Trek: Orion Rendezvous - planetarium video (LaForge & Riker) for Star Trek: Federation Science attraction
Star Trek: Borg is so good! I actually bought the game at the Klingon Encounter gift shop. I’m so sad that it’s no longer at Las Vegas Hilton... I loved Quark’s Warp Core Drink you could buy at the bar... while flirting with Klingons. Good times...
When you're not focused on railing against the offenses of the SJW, your content is pretty great!
Obviously it's your right to comment on it, and your views are quite poignant, but it can get to be a bit much at times.
Star Trek Academy: "Your score was inadequate - You'll have to repeat the mission." Pretty soon into the game, that was all I heard. The game provided no clues as to what I could do better next time - it wasn't as if I'd failed at any mission objectives or anything - I'd just succeeded at them 'inadequately', apparently.
Paused at 8 seconds...
Whatever the argument is, the animated series IS Canon...
It completes the five year mission...
The reason for the animated series is because of a strike that was going on where, the actors couldn't be in screen but a loop hope in all that was, that their voices and a cartoon version of them could be on screen...
The animated series have us the hollow deck, Kirk's middle name, and mention of a saucer separation ability...
And a few other things....
So yes... Animated series it's very much so Canon
I'm surprised you didnt mention Star Trek TNG A Final unity for pc-dos! That game was ahead of its time for 1994 and such a beast to run less you had a 486dx2 or x4 based pc lol which was pretty much near top of the line till the pentuim 1's came into lower price brackets.
Those were the days... I remember all of these. I recall going in to Future Shop in another city and picking up Star Trek Borg as a kid. I was so pumped to play it but then couldn't get it to work on my computer. Starfleet Academy blew me away as a kid. I always wanted to get that VCR game but could never find it and missed out on Star Trek The Experience unfortunately. :(
same can be said for the future doctor episode where his program is in an alien museum..... some of the voyager eps were (what's the opposite of ret-conned?) disregarded as they went completely off the deep end....
+The Dave Cullen Show
Sorry just a point about Star Trek Borg. The Ship that is a shown is the USS Cheyenne. While yes it is stock footage of the Enterprise D from the show the opening transmission in the intro suggests your on the Cheyenne not the Enterprise D. (which is confirmed in the book and audiobook)
They did end up using the Voyager sets but that could just convey that the Cheyennes time of construction is later and closer to Voyagers construction time. Plus there are some variances between the internal look of federation ships.
You are right about the uniforms they do no match the uniforms used at the time in the show chronologically.
I personally thought it would be fun if they released more of this type of game. Dealing with side ships and certain cultural things. Like the Romulans.
Sometimes, in the dead of night, when I am alone and the darkness is closing in all around me, I close my eyes and see John Delancie's head floating in a sea of white as he says, "To have come so far and yet to lose? All this work and the outcome is the same..."
I remember people talking about the TNG VHS board game back in the day.
Honestly I've never understood why no one ever re-released it on a DVD. Or hell, just made a new game with the same concept, which could be even better. With a DVD you could input some selections into the video, possibly randomize certain events, or at the very least just allow the game to conclude with a selected win/loss scenario.
Do note that (and this is not a spoiler at all) Star Trek Klingon takes place entirely inside a Holodeck program. So none of it "really happened."
Everyone in there is a hologram. You are, in fact, a human, who is learning about Klingon culture by running a Holodeck program.
Just want to add that it's not just "some arguing." TAS was officially made canon by CBS/Paramount. Because wanted it.
Memory Alpha, which has always considered TAS to be canon, shows it's not all that disruptive. It's fairly easy to make it work.
Unlike Memory Beta and trying to include all the books which often contradict each other.
I loved playing Star Trek Starfleet Academy and Star Trek Klingon Academy! I've actually got a website up showing how you can get these games working for newer systems! https://www.startrekgames.net/star-trek-starfleet-academy https://www.startrekgames.net/star-trek-klingon-academy
OK so all of these are canon, but did any event in these stories have any effect on the main stories? Were they ever even mentioned or referenced? If not then canon is a largely meaningless adjective in these cases.
Honestly. I prefer the Borg Experience over that of the Klingon Encounter. For one simple reason. You got to be part of the action, sort-of. I still remember the first time I went through it and I was standing right next to one of the actors who got grabbed by a Borg Drone. Not to mention seeing Borg almost face-to-face sent shivers down my spine. Though I do admit I got a similar shiver during the Klingon Encounter Ride when you are caught in the Tractor Beam of the Bird of Prey and the Enterprise swoops in to save the day. Riker's "Not Today" Line was classic. It was a thrilling experience and I would love to seen Star Trek Experience maybe moving to another location and expanding with another couple rides. It would have been awesome. Sigh. Those were the days...
I love Star Trek Borg & treat it as Canon. The production values were high & the characters were well fleshed out for 1hr screen time. The writers included plenty of witty moments. Q seals the deal. I often refer fans to the YouTube video as they have never seen it. Playing the actual game at the time was frustrating & glitchy but worth it for cutscenes. Before YouTube existed I kept the CD's just for the video files. Klingon Challenge I still have on VHS.
You could consider Star Trek: Klingon Honor Guard.
It's a mediocre shooter based on the Unreal Engine. But it does feature Tony Todd as Kurn, though not live action, just a horribly late 90's rendered version voiced by him.
I LOVED Star Trek: Borg! Great story, and a hilarious performance by John DeLancie. It also did the Borg justice, making you feel their menacing presence at every turn. Something that got a little lost in Voyager where they slowly became a parody of themselves...
I never really got into the games. I used to live in Las Vegas and made many trips to Star Trek the Experience. (still have the tickets) I moved there about two months before it opened. It was delayed multiple times because of technical issues. Actually, I still have two of the Space Quest Casino glasses from the bar there also. (You had to go through the casino to get to the Experience.) Thank you for the flash backs!
True, but then later paramount and cbs ruled it as canon for the 50th aniversary, since they hold the rights now sadly what they say is true. For its flaws it did have some neat scenes and lore that could fit. I mean personally where else you gonna see spock use actual blood and pentagrams to fight satan? LOL ah good times
What about the awesome looking but never released "Secret of Vulcan Fury." Those sound files exist somewhere, I would assume. Would be neat to see someone make a game of them or at least some animated thingy.
Star Fleet Command, is the least cannon Video game out there. SFC is based in the Star Fleet Battles Universe. In 1979 Tack Force Games got a forever license to produce a War Game based on Start Trek TOS and The Animated Series. The game has it own races and history, calling it self the Star Fleet Universe (or SFU). In the late 1990's A video game company got a license to produce a video game star ship combat simulator, and found they could not make a good one without stealing form SFB, so they also Licensed SFB to make it. The game, and this three supplements/stand alone equals, use nearly everything form Star Fleet Battles.
The opening sequence of the game shows the flyby of a Constitution Class Star ship, right out of TOS's opening, but then it is followed by three D type Klingon Cruisers. That is not the Enterprise, but the Hood, being chased by 1 D7 and 2 D6 cruisers, from the Class SFB game setup "the Might Hood Goes Down" which is part of the opened events of the Federation's inclusion in the General War, a large part of the SFU universe.
