A "space combat shooter" title, Star Trek: Invasion is based on characters and situations from Star Trek: The Next Generation. The game features voice acting performances by several Star Trek actors, including Patrick Stewart (Jean-Luc Picard) and Michael Dorn (Worf).
Invasion was the first Star Trek game to be released for the Sony Playstation. It was developed by Activision in conjunction with Warthog Games, who had previously created the Colony Wars series of games.
IGN gave the game an 8 out of 10. Starlog praised the game, saying that it "delivers big and entertains" and said that the graphics were "great", but criticised the Star Trek experience saying that the music lacks the feeling of the franchise and the ships seen in the game don't match those which appeared on television or in the films. It added that players should be "pleased with the game" if they could sidestep the lack of a typical Gene Roddenberry/Star Trek feeling.
