    I have to admit, I'd be hoping for this to come to more than just some updated art. They are some of the best Trek games about and I'd love the chance to purchase them digitally

    I'd love to play Star Trek Fleet Command series again. Though I imagine it wouldn't feel as high quality as it did to me back then.

    I would drop an unreasonable amount of money to have drm free copies of all of these games.

    To be fair alot of these games can be aquired and made to work through various legel and non-legal means. I 'downloaded' a copy of 'A Final Unity' and once o got it working with dosbox bought a copy of the game disc online (i still had my original box from years ago).

    Until these people sort out licences for these games so we can rebuy them properly abandonware sites are the way to go

    Well, with the updated copyright that is on the images, it is looking like the licences have been sorted out. The thing is, some people don't have the knowladge to get the old games working, this is why GOG is so useful, and usually the cost isn't too high, so it'll open up these old games to new people, or returning players.

    I would love, love some Birth of the Federation.
    I never quite got into BOTF when I was younger, but I would definitely pick it up if it got a re-release. There's nothing more nostalgic than the classic Star Trek games.

    The main problem with BOTF is the memory leak in the game. At some point it takes ages for it to process a turn

    Stellaris does something similar, when you reach a certain year it starts to give up the ghost a bit.

    I'd like to take another crack at Judgement Rites. I remember playing it way back in the day but the version I had, which I think was the White Label budget release and is still here somewhere didn't have the cast voices.
