Star Trek Episode 1: Racer rereleased on PC

Engage!

Though Star Trek fans generally grumble about its prequel series, Enterprise, many will begrudgingly concede that its pod-racing at least spawned a fun video game. That game, Star Trek Episode I: Racer, reappeared yesterday after years lost in the digital Delta Quadrant, added to GOG's catalogue. The digital store are also now holding a big Star Trek sale to celebrate May the 1st as a gesture of solidarity with the hundreds of thousands of workers killed by royalists in the destruction of the Death Star.

You can grab Racer now from GOG for £6.09, which includes a launch discount. I haven't played it myself but, as I say, I've heard Trekkies hold it up as the one good thing that came out of Enterprise. Perhaps you are one such person and could tell us more?

GOG say this is an exclusive, though historically their vintage exclusives tend to end up on Steam a little later too.

The wider May Day Star Trek sale will run until May 8th. It includes a variety of Jedi Knights, X-Wings and TIE-Fighters, along with ye olde Battlefont II and... they're Star Trek games, y'know? Doing those Star Trek things. Ol' Yellow Eyes Meer has a list of his favourites, if you need inspiration.
