    Default STNG: Echoes from the Past

    Star Trek has been a television staple for more than three decades, and its run in gaming is almost as impressive. Echoes from the Past was Sega's attempt at bringing the Next Generation to the Genesis, and while not a bad game per se, it definitely had its flaws. Read our full review and see if you should engage or warp past this one.

    I don't even know why I got this game back in the day when it was brand new... I don't know if I asked for it, or wanted it or what. It just was there.
    The smell of scorched oil hangs in the air as a premonition of danger, while the engine gloriously shouts its war cry...

    Throughout history, suspicion has always bred conflict. The real conflict, though, resides in people's hearts. This conflict has just begun.

    Sega developed this themselves? Surely they farmed it out to Spectrum Holobyte or something.

    Nope. I scoured the game, manual (with credits in the back), and the box. No mention of any other company.

    That's crazy! It looks soooo Spectrum Holobyte. Maybe Spencer Nilsen programmed it himself.

    My dad and I rented this once, he was something of a Trekkie and the Genesis in my home technically belonged to him and my mom. Weird, huh?

    He kind of echoed the review; he had fun, but he thought he spent waaaaaay too much time answering hails from other ships. I should track this down somewhere, my latent Star Trek gene was recently reactivated.

    I own the SNES release, and it is clearly a Spectrum Holobyte production (at least, according to the box, manual, cartridge label, title screen, etc.). Being as both the Genesis and SNES versions are effectively the same game, ehh.. somethings a lil' fishy.

    Yeah, I originally thought it was a SH game, but there's absolutely no mention of the company anywhere.

    Although I ended up with the game, I can remember giving it a shot a few times in the past, and I was just amazed at the production values.

    This was when I was a kid, and it seemed very Sega to me... so I find it funny that another devloper was involved.

    I hate the fact that this game never made it across this side of the pond. The Next Generation is an awesome programme and Patrick Stewart is probably the greatest human being alive. A think a 6 is a bit harsh. Anything that has Patrick Stewart in should be an automatic candidate for a 10 or even an 11.
