I realise I made most of the links on this page, but I was just following an established convention, so; why is it all the games are "Star Trek: blah-blah" and not just "blah-blah"? Same for the text books for that matter. I know it's the full title, but the same could be said for any of the novels or comics, this is a wiki about Star Trek stuff do we really need to make that clear at head of every games page? -- 8of5 18:55, 30 October 2006 (UTC)

Star Trek Online has two pages in the January 2008 Game Informer magazine. I want to post the info, but I am really not the guy you want starting a new page of this magnitude. Please help. I can scan pictures if it's legal. I'll even transcribe the article if that's kosher. Just let me know what can be done here. – AT2Howell 02:41, 16 December 2007 (UTC)

May possibly want to put the infomation from the orginal Enocunters game to Encounters (video game). This new name was added just in case an author made a book. 17:10, 11 November 2008 (UTC)
No, we won't be moving that on the basis of "maybe", Rift Fleet. -- Captain MKB 18:47, 11 November 2008 (UTC)


The term "video game" is firmly entrenched in popular lexicon and has been the standard in our templates referring to all computer games, as well as console games. There is in fact a gap in history between the development of the 'computer game' (a game played via a computer program) and the 'video game' (which is a game that provides video interface for the player) -- but there is no discontinuity in our usage, however, as no licensed Star Trek games were produced in the era before video (some fan-made ones, though, in that era when it was printout only) ... even 'text-based' games like The Promethean Prophecy and The Kobayashi Alternative are in fact designed to be read through a video interface (a monitor), despite the fact there were no graphics involved in gameplay. i think the definition of "video" is even wide enough to include simplistic LCD games of the 80s and later, if such a thing is relevant to Star Trek, as most 'video' these days are screens based on an evolution of LCD technology -- Captain MKB 09:09, September 2, 2012 (UTC)
