Unlike the first game, Elite Force II is largely set onboard the USS Enterprise-E stationed in the Alpha Quadrant. The game's storyline is a semi-sequel to the movie Star Trek Nemesis, and the end of Star Trek: Voyager series. Many of the members from the original Hazard Team reappear. However only a few of the primary cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation did voice acting for the game, among them Patrick Stewart as Jean-Luc Picard, Dwight Schultz as Reginald Barclay, and Tim Russ as Tuvok. Several actors from Star Trek series provided additional voice acting: Jeffrey Combs (Weyoun from Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and Commander Shran from Star Trek: Enterprise) as one of the main villains; Robert O'Reilly (Gowron from Deep Space Nine) as Krindo; J.G. Hertzler (Martok from Deep Space Nine, plus roles in Voyager and Enterprise) as Lurok; and Vaughn Armstrong (Admiral Forrest in Enterprise) who contributed with several character voices.

Report article RSS Feed EF2 Master Replacment

As you may have noticed the Star Trek Elite Force II Master server has been down for quite a while now. As result players can not retrieve the server list, but there is a solution...

Posted by Chrissstrahl on Jan 5th, 2012

Gsio provides us a alternative Master server for EF2 !


Using this alternative Master Server the players can see the server listed again in the game Serverbrowser. Setting the new Master Server can be a little bit tricky, unless you can put this automated tool to use, which is for windows only. So here is a small tutorial how to set the new Master Server for your Client Game and Game Server.

Please note:

  • That you might need Administrative privileges for this to work.
  • It can take up to 30 seconds for you to connect to a server when connecting the first time to it with your current IP
  • It might show you a Authentication failed message, ignore it. It appears only because the verification of your CD-Key did not succeed (usually done by the Master/Auth server)

Windows (XP,Vista,Win7)

  1. Open the file named "hosts" in "C:/windows/system32/drivers/etc"
    (assuming you installed windows on drive "c").
  2. Make sure you use Notepad.exe or any else text editor to edit the hosts file, Wordpad or Word or Office will !!!N O T!!! work!
  3. Scroll down to the bottom line and add the following line:
    78.46.64.6 ef2master.activision.com
  4. Save the file and reboot your Operating System.

MAC OS-X 10.2 and above

  1. Access the TERMINAL
  2. Browse the directory using the command string:
    cd /private/etc
  3. Open the hosts file in the nano text editor:
    sudo nano hosts
  4. Scroll down to the bottom line and add the following line:
    78.46.64.6 ef2master.activision.com
  5. Press Control and X and save the file with administrative privileges.
  6. Reboot your Operating System.

Dedicated Servers

  1. Add the following configuration string to your server-config and make sure the server loads the config file on each start-up:
    set sv_master1 ef2master.activision.com
    set sv_master2 ef2master.gdev-rp.org

Listen Servers

  1. Enter into the console (use the middle mouse button to paste text from the clipboard into the game console), and hit enter:
    seta sv_master1 ef2master.activision.com
    seta sv_master2 ef2master.gdev-rp.org

Ya, it's a great game. Too bad it isn't on Steam or Desura, it wouldn't even need a face lifting to be resold.
