More From The Collective on The Fallen
10:22 AM | Toby Allen | Comment on this story

Gameloft has posted an interview with Douglas Hare, one of the thee owners of The Collective: the team developing Star Trek Deep Space Nine: The Fallen. The interview is quite interesting, as they discuss certain situations and difficulties that they had to overcome. Although they worked closely with Paramount to make sure the game has the right Star Trek features, they were also allowed to include a new race of aliens, The Grigari. Here is a quote from the interview on how they used their creative licence to spice up the Trek universe:

GL : There is a totally new race in this game, the Grigari, how did these come about? I mean were there not enough nasties that you could throw at Sisko and Co already?


[Doug] Although there are many very cool hostile alien species in show (almost all of which are in the game), we wanted to create a determined, brutal enemy that would be completely new and yet befit the Trek universe. We researched previous species from all the shows and came up with the Grigari. They're nano-based, biomechanical pirates/mercenaries designed to be efficient (exoskeletal with no internal organs), modular (interchangeable body parts), armored (combat), organic (can evolve and mutate), in other words, they make the Borg look nice. :-)

The Fallen has reached late Beta for Mac and PC, and we expect the game to go 'gold' (there is that word again!) in the very near future. Watch IMG for more information specific to the Mac version of this title in the near future.
