Star Trek: Enterprise - M.A.C.O. is the re-launch of the cancelled Star Trek: Enterprise – Temporal Cold War (E:TCW) single-player Half-Life 2 modification, now based on CryTek’s CryEngine 3 technology. By learning from the mistakes we made during the development of E:TCW and utilizing the majority of the modeling and texturing assets created for its predecessor, we are confident that production will move forward at a far greater speed than the last attempt. Storywise, STE:M aspires to showcase the character-based storytelling format of E:TCW in small, one-hour episodes; gameplay-wise however, it embraces the formula used in the Elite Force series of video games offering both linear combat levels and free roam sections to let players explore the NX-01 Enterprise within reasonable bounds.
The Tholian starship is a relatively small vessel
of characteristic shape. Their small size permits
these vessels to be highly agile. They are of a
common design, used by the Tholian Assembly, and
are outfitted with formidable weaponry, including
some kind of energy dampening weapon to render the
target vessel almost completely powerless. The
interiors of these vessels are kept at
temperatures exceeding 200 °C.
