Elite Force Voice Add-on
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Activision recently released a statement regarding the upcoming expansion pack for the PC version Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force. They note that Jeri Ryan (who plays Seven of Nine for the TV series) was unable to do her voice-over parts for the original Elite Force because of other commitments. Now she will be recording all of her lines from Elite Force, as well as a set of new dialog recordings for the expansion pack. While there has been no word from Aspyr Media on the possibility of a Mac port of the expansion pack, the press release also says that the voice pack will be made available as a free download for owners of the original -- so Mac users won't miss out on hearing the real Seven of Nine, regardless. Here's a clip:

Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI) is giving Trekkers the chance to sign-up for a tour of duty alongside Jeri Ryan in the upcoming Star Trek: Voyager® Elite Force™ Expansion Pack. The add-on will include a dialog pack performed by Jeri Ryan, as the Seven of Nine character. Players will be able to hear Ms. Ryan as Seven of Nine in the original game missions, as well as the new expansion. The speech pack will also be available via a free downloadable patch.
So, even if we don't get the whole expansion pack, fans of the Aspyr port will likely still get to hear Ryan speak her portion of the lines. We chatted briefly with Westlake, who thought it was probable the data voice files would be interchangeable for the Mac version. Once the pack actually available, we'll be able to test it and know for sure.

We do know for certain that Aspyr will be releasing an OS X version of Elite Force soon. It is in the works now by OmniGroup and will be available after Aspyr has run it through the testing gauntlet and deems it ready for public consumption.
