Deep Space 9 - The Fallen Tweak guide
Posted on January 11, 2001 by Thomas McGuire

 

Introduction

Deep Space 9 - The Fallen represents one of the latest games to based in the Star Trek universe, the other one being Voyager Elite Force. Although rather than going the route of an FPS game this is a third person viewed game & uses the Unreal engine.

The Pah-wraiths - a race of exiled, all-powerful aliens - are on the verge of returning. The keys to unleashing & harnessing their power are three archaic Red Orbs. The race to find the Orbs is on between you - playing as either Captain Sisko, Major Kira, or Lt. Commander Worf - & a host of opposing forces that would use the ultimate power to dominate the Alpha Quadrant & all of its inhabitants.

If you haven’t already done so you may download the DS9 – The Fallen demo from 3DFiles.
