There's been a lot of Star Wars action on GOG over the past few months, but now it's time for some activity from the other side of the great sci-fi divide. The digital retailer announced today that it's added three famous Star Trek games to its mix, including the first-ever digital release of Star Trek: 25th Anniversary.

Originally released by Interplay in 1992—back in the days when Interplay still mattered—Star Trek: 25th Anniversary was notable right from the start for assembling the entire cast of the original television series as voice actors for the game. But it was also a critical hit: ACE magazine scored it 940/1000 in its review, according to Wikipedia, while Computer Gaming World called it "the most outstanding Star Trek yet produced for the computer."

GOG also now has the 1993 adventure Star Trek: Judgment Rites, which was very similar to 25th Anniversary but with improved graphics and sound, and Star Trek: Starfleet Academy, a starship flight simulator peppered with FMV sequences featuring William Shatner, Walter Koenig, and George Takei, that was released in 1997.

"It's Star Trek's turn to shine on GOG.com. Our sci-fi fans should now be pretty much covered," Oleg Klapovsky, GOG's vice president of business development, said in a statement. "We're always excited for the chance to restore lost videogames to modern PCs. There are very few that deserve the GOG.com treatment more than the Star Trek classics, and we've done everything to make sure they work flawlessly."

All three games are available for the usual GOG price of $6 each, or you can pick them up in a not-at-all-discounted bundle for $18.

Star Trek: The Video Game Online FAQ’s

If you are experiencing problems when trying to play online co-op:
It's possible you may have selected the "Offline" setting when starting your game. In order to fix this simply do the following:

1. Go into "Options" (either from the main menu or from the pause menu) and select "Game Type".

2. Make sure you set the game type to either "Public" or "Private" as "Offline" will set the game to single-player only mode. Please note that if you set the game to "Private" only players that you send a game invite to will be able to join your game.

Matchmaking : Invitational Matches | Similar Levels

Unless an invitation is sent to another player, you will only be able to join another game that is at a current or similar level/area as you are.

Online Match-Making Tips: Co-op

Players will only be able to join games (through either quick match or custom match) that are at the same point in their current progress/level in the game. The exception to this rule is if you are sent a game invite from a player that has already progressed past the point where you are in the game.

We recommend that you set at least the difficulty (Easy/Medium/Hard within the criteria settings) when searching for a Custom Match online to narrow the search and make it easier to connect to another random player. Since the Quick Match feature will use the settings that were used/selected in Custom Match by default, if you started by selecting Quick Match (without going into the Custom Match option) it will be searching by the "any-any-any" search criteria.

Online “Drop-in, Drop-out” Games:

If you are playing with another player through online co-op, you will need to make sure that the setting for "Game Type" within the options menu is set to either Public or Private (depending on your preference) as setting the game in "Offline" mode will not allow others to drop-in to your game.
