WELCOME BACK ON BOARD THE USS VOYAGER (NCC-74656)

Unbelievable 15 years ago since Star Trek Voyager- Elite Force was released. This mod is for everyone, who loves the golden age of Star Trek games released by Activision. Elite Force was a nice shooter and for sure one of the best Trek games ever. If you want to play this game today you will might be disappointed about the graphics, which appeared so nice one and a half decade ago. So a couple of years ago I started to collect everything that is useful, to create a graphic overhaul for that wonderful piece of software by Raven. Although most of the textures where created by myself with Photoshop, there are also a lot of sources used, like files from the good old, but gone forever this summer, filefront. I also use a new OpenGL renderer by, which adds a lot of new render technics and light effects. Due to the fact, that this is a pseudo driver it just simulates a lot of effects, but, even this is not working always perfectly, it’s an astonishing improvement compared to the original graphical quality. By the way, this renderer also works for the RPGX editions.

Of course I am not able to recreate every texture, what means that basically ”only” the whole Voyager, the Tutorial, some Borg and some Holomatch textures, HUD, GUI, Levelshots etc. will be replaced in the final release. And I also reworked the famous Serenity Galaxy Class map textures.


A release is planned this year. At the moment I am fixing some bugs, but I hope I can provide a beta for some testers soon.


Sorry for my bad English… I am sure grammar is horrible :D

Elite Force Graphic Overhaul Mod Beta 0.90 Release

These are some release notes for the first public release version of the Star Trek Voyager - Elite Force: Graphic Overhaul Project. This is not a final/complete version and I cannot guarantee that there will ever be one.

When I tested the package last time I had problems to get the mod working with the original game alone, without the Expansion Pack. My suggestion: if you do not have the Expansion Pack…get it instantly from somewhere. That’s an order redhirt!


Main features:

  • high definition rework of a lot, a lot, a lot of textures especially Voyager levels (Borg stuff is experimental)
  • complete LCARS displays HD rework
  • complete HUD, GUI and Font HD rework
  • some Federation weapons and Tricorder reworks, also some new effects
  • Federation uniforms, communicator and rank signs rework (also look at the doctors emitter
  • so far some crew head HD reworks (Janeway, Seven, The Doctor), plan is to complete it someday
  • new openGL render engine adding a lot of new effects
  • I tried to make everything true to the franchise and I even used pictures of the real screen used props (for example Turbolift navigation panel, the captain’s chair, Jeffries tube ground door etc.)
  • widescreen adjustments (not perfect)

Special Feature

The user Kana136 was so kind to give me some examples of his work to improve the overall game experience with additional shadow casts from light sources and more accurate Voyager maps. I included his work for the Borg maps from the first single player mission and you can see a remapped version of the Holodeck map used for the first in game graphic cut scene after the Borg mission failed.

We will see what Kana will contribute in future. Let’s hope he has enough time to do some more fantastic improvements.

More specials

  • open the console (^) and type “map DBRIDGE” and find yourself on the Bridge of the USS Enterprise D
  • go to holomatch mode and select “create, match”, choose the Serenity_B_V2 Map and take a tour on a HD retextured Galaxy Starship
  • press V/B to switch/leave third-person-view

I included a credit list, since a lot of work and features came from different modders from content that was made many, many years ago. I also want to thank XearoX for his openGl renderer I used at the beginning. I switched to the ReShade framework later but I was inspired to work on this Mod by the extended features he made possible.


I hope you will enjoy the current status as much as I do and I apology for my humble English.

I dont get it, this mod forces game into 2560x1440 resolution? And if one only has 1080p it will fail to launch. Editing config does nothing it keeps trying to run at 2560 resolution and failing-EDIT, alright figured , u can edit autoexec.cfg and change resolution, but graphis is super blury if u lower resolution, and exec forces game to dutch? come on man. I am logging out of this, sorry.

This is awesome, but Holomatch no longer runs. I finally got the normal Elite Force to run but now Holomatch freezes within a few seconds of getting into the main screen. A solid freeze. I have to log out to get out of the game.

I'm already using ReShade with the game. If I want to install the mod without the ReShade part, is it enough to just not run Mediator.exe and leaving out ReShade files and opengl32.dll?

Follow instructions and see the forum for troubleshooting. Let me know if everything works fine. Have not updated the mod for over a year. Possibly it is not working as intended on newer Windows 10 Versions. I need to check it.
