Star Trek: Hidden Evil is an adventure game set in the Star Trek universe. The game sees the player embody the persona of Ensign Sovok, a Human raised by Vulcans, who, as a result of this unusual upbringing, can use the Vulcan nerve pinch.

Marketed as the sequel game to Star Trek: Insurrection, the game embroils the player in a plot to harness the destructive powers of a coveted genetic seed. After discovering a warning from the Ancient humanoids, the player must engage alien forces and outwit foes in a series of challenging missions, or the galaxy will fall victim to a ruthless archenemy.

Hidden Evil was poorly received, garnering a 4.0 from IGN and 4.5 from GameSpot. [1] [2] In addition to weak storytelling, the game shipped with numerous technical glitches.
