(written from a Production point of view)
Taldren, Inc. was a video game developer. Formed in 1999 by people who had worked at Interplay on the original Star Trek: Starfleet Command, they were the primary developer for all the games in the Star Trek: Starfleet Command series from Star Trek: Starfleet Command II - Empires at War onwards.
Along with Starfleet Command II, they also developed Star Trek: Starfleet Command - Orion Pirates. Both titles were published by Interplay.
Following the release of Activision's Star Trek: Starfleet Command III in 2003 the company was dissolved. At the time they were working on a action RPG with an original IP called Black 9 which was expected to be the company's breakaway hit.
