Star Trek: Away Team is a strategy game published by Activision in 2001. It chronicles the missions of the crew of the USS Incursion, an experimental Starfleet commando ship equipped with holographic masking technology allowing it to impersonate any vessel. The crew of specially trained commandos must face a threat to galactic peace from a far-reaching conspiracy known as the "Wardens."

SENSITIVE SITUATIONS CALL FOR DISCREET OPERATIONS

  • Complex alien surroundings are the setting for your stealth missions, including Romulan outposts, Borg cubes, and unpredictable foreign landscapes.
  • Select from 17 highly trained specialists to form the perfect squad for each mission.
  • Covert military operations take your team into a wide range of life and death missions.
  • Grenades and other unique weapons complement your standard-issue arsenal.

Gameplay

Star Trek: Away Team plays from a top-down isometric view. Prior to each mission the player must choose an away team from a roster of crew members. Each branch is represented – Command, Operations, and Sciences – by several members to choose from, each with different strengths and weaknesses. In addition to the away team members, the player must also choose which equipment is carried by each member.

The overall plot is advanced during away team missions, and the objectives of each mission often change during the mission due to circumstances of the plot. In between missions the story is advanced with rendered cut scenes.
