The Battle for Delor Prime (Star Trek: Armada II)

As some of you guys know, during the latter parts of developing LCARS 47 the Dev Team got pretty caught up playing Star Trek: Armada II when the work permitted. Obviously, I was undefeated every time (even when they all teamed up against me). Anyways, we thought we'd release the map I made. The catch is, it's lodged in a file inside LCARS Prolixus. Happy hunting!

Waveform Analysis

A screen inspired from the Star Trek: Elite Force II game, I've always been a fan of the little tricorder waveform puzzles. It's only an animation, but I thought I'd try to capture the essence of the game.

Although I've been pretty strict with regards to canon, I have found games like Star Trek: Voyager: Elite Force and Star Trek: Elite Force II invaluable as they provide a practical 'in universe' method of research for the LCARS 47 project. 

If you're a fan of the Elite Force series, there are more than a few references to the game, as well as a few secrets and in-jokes for you to find. If you haven't yet played the game, I recommend you do.

Critical Failures

You won't find many developers that deliberately add a set of failures to a program. But sometimes, flickering monitors and system failures look really cool, and LCARS 47 is set to make use of failures. Don't worry, it wont just crash on you, but as part of the hidden secrets development, they'll make an appearance here and there.

Can you enter your codes in time?

Hidden Goodies • Preview Hint

Over the course of the development, LCARS 47 has become known for its hidden secrets - most notably the "assimilation virus" which became favorite among users. Version 6 will proudly follow that tradition. There's a ton of new secrets, hidden surprises and in-jokes that only the most hardened Trekker will get. 

Here's a preview of just three of them. First, there's some old library computer files stored in a database somewhere which contain a copy of the software from the USS Excelsior. There's also a few sing-along audio files to find, including a very special audio treat for fans of The Next Generation. And there's also a way to hack into a Romulan Warbird computer; just don't get caught in there...

These are just three examples of what's in store, but I can confidently say that there will be some things in Version 6 that you will seriously love. One thing in particular is sure to be a success.



On a related note, The Borg are set to make a comeback, with an even more deadly nanoprobe toxin you'll need to think fast to escape it - if that's even possible.

Something I thought would give you something to look forward to in Version 6. Happy hunting.
