In 2007, ChessMess, from the popular but now closed Star Trek Gaming site “StarTrek-Games.com” launched the first Star Trek Gaming Players Choice Awards ceremony which served to honour and celebrate the best aspects of Star Trek Gaming from all over the world.
The event was a huge success attracting members of the Star Trek Gaming community to come together and vote for the best of the best and in January 2009, the 2nd Players Choice Awards commenced celebrating the best of Star Trek Gaming in 2008.
So it’s with great honour that here in January 2010, Hailing Frequency
keeps the torch alight with the commencement of the 3rd Annual Star Trek Gaming Players Choice Awards!
