The Ultimate Universe is/was a total conversion modification of the PC Game, Star Trek: Legacy (released in Late 2006), and began in January 2007 with the goal then being a multi stage development process to recreate, as close as possible, the look and feel of all of the original Star Trek series and movies. Chris Jones Gaming as an entity had just begun, and the team, growing by the day, was off to create one heck of a mod. The team acquired modelers, mappers, scripters, programmers, and other ‘staff’, many of which had worked with Chris on his previous modifications of StarFleet Command and/or Bridge Commander. We ended up releasing a ‘demo’ on 4/14/07 – Followed immediately by a little patch to fix a few things. Demo Patch two was released to the public on 5/21/07 after much beta testing, which included all new TOS ships from Moonraker, and a reworked single player campaign from Gamemaster, among other things. Many new missions and 1 on 1 maps were added. Mindwipe provided many new sound effects and produced a very nice soundtrack for each race in the mod. Then came The Ultimate Borg, Dominion, and a full 1.0 release on 9/24/07. Stage 2 has been realased – we are up to 2.2

The Ultimate Universe Mod for Star Trek Legacy is a collaboration of many individuals driven to make the best of Star Trek Legacy. While it has been a few years since our UU2.2 release, in honor of the 9th Anniversary of the Release of Star Trek Legacy we are planning a little something. While not on the scale of our previous work, we hope it adds something to the community. As to when, we aren’t sure yet but hoping for a December release to be ready to be released on the 9th Anniversary of Star Trek Legacy’s release.
Ultimate Universe 2.3 (as we are currently calling it) is still progressing. Initially we weren’t counting on a very large release. With some great contributions by Kophjaeger coming in last week, the release has grown greatly. This has the unfortunate side effect of delaying the release due to there being significantly more integration and testing, and putting me onto other duties taking me away from the other content I was preparing for release.
I think in the end anyone who plays the new release will consider it well worth the delay. It’s been years since our last release and this one is shaping up to likely be our second biggest release since UU was introduced (size wise).
As we get a bit further along, I will be posting more detail on expected content. Right now it is a bit to early to detail what we will be including, but here is a picture of one of the ships expected to make an appearance.
We will also be integrating the XI Pack release into this build. There are some expected changes to the original XI release content including a notable model change.

McShave07 says on Jun 10 2016 Oh wow, if only Star Trek legacy had released with all the content from this mod. Totally outstanding.
Every single problem I had with the game has been fixed with this. (not to say it hasn’t created a few new ones, it’s a shame it breaks the xbox 360 controller usage a bit, accessing the ship sub menus is now impossible so you have to reach for the mouse to pick some thing like the tractor beam….still) Hands down the best mod I’ve tried for any game in years. 10
NovaDenied says on May 24 2016 Loved this game since it first came out and finally decided to revisit it again on pc and this is the first mod i have tried and it will be the only one i need, it blows the stock game out the water. Worth waiting 9 years to play lol.10
GruenerTeufel2 says Mar 15 2013 AMAZING WORK but i think part 1 of v2 is to big 2gb not everyone can download this 9
Opinionator says on Nov 23 2012 The vanilla Legacy felt like a unfinished demo. UU makes it feel like a finished game. 10

Amazing graphics.With The Ultimate Universe 2 i have trouble with the missions tried everything no information found.
But the star trek engine is just horrible, the effects were great but for some reason it crashed the hell out of it.
The Ultimate Universe 2, may not support the new video card/drivers. 10
liberty_wings says on Jun 28 2011 The most amazing mod for Star Trek Legacy…but what i’m saying? This isn’t a mod! This is a totally new game! 😀 10
sgtmyers88 says on Apr 13 2011 Adds to what most Trek Fans have been screaming for for so many years! Reliving events from the TV shows and movies is an epic feature all on its own! 10
