GamersPulse has posted an interview with Raven Software's Kenn Hoekstra about their upcoming first-person shooter, Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force. The team has noted many times they are planning to release a Mac version of this anticipated game, though no official publisher has been announced as of yet. Here's a clip from the interview noting the extensive modifications Raven made to the Quake 3 Arena engine, upon which this game is based:
GP: How much did you have to tweak the Q3A engine to make it look so good?That sounds like lot of work, but from first impressions around the web this game may just break the trend of awful games based on the Star Trek fictional universe. Be sure to check out the rest of this Q&A for more details. Raven is hoping to have the game finished soon this Fall; we will of course keep you posted on the status the Mac OS version.

KH: We had to tweak it quite a bit, actually. We added all of the single player code that was absent from its multiplayer-only code base and followed up with a new scripting language, a new AI system, a new visual effects system, LOD models and the CARCASS skeletal animation system.
