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.
Work on STE:M is going on slowly but steadily - this time, we show off the Launch Bay and the Captain himself!

Work is going on slowly but steadily on the mod, with TripTucker diligently mapping the Enterprise decks, and Croesus working on some of the characters planned to appear in our teaser episode. In this update, we would like to show off their latest work.
In the pictures below, you can see the latest addition to the Enterprise free roam map we are working on: the Launch Bay, spanning two decks in height within the NX-01. Although some props are still missing, and some minor additions will need to be added, we thought that the bay already possessed the level of detail needed to publish some promotional shots about it.
The real attraction of this MR is however the Captain of the vessel, Jonathan Archer, who finally got an almost complete in-game appearance, thanks to the hard work of Croesus, our resident voice actor, proofreader, and character modeller. At the moment, he is working on one of the female members of the Enterprise crew - with any luck, we can shed light on his current task within a couple of months... ;)
This concludes the short update on the mod's development. Thanks for your attention, live Long and Prosper!
