We have just released to the public our FREE Star Trek game based on the Torque 3D engine. It is title Star Trek: NCC1701 and features for the first time the entire original Enterprise rendered in full-scale 3D. This means players can actually walk the entire interior of theship from top to bottom when all interior decks are completed.
For now, our playable demo includes the bridge and the shuttlebay (you can turbolift between the two), and the ability to fly a shuttle around the outside of the ship and practice various combat and flight missions.
