Its a game, Jim. But not as we know it.
Made when the original cast made there swan song with Star Trek VI, we (read I) feared that the next Star Trek would never hold a candle to this one. Then this game turned up on PC DOS and Amiga 1200 and made up for Star Trek Generations. Featuring full voice cast by the original crew which adds an intirely new dimension to the game (CD version),an intuitive interface (that you get used to after a while) and fiendish puzzles, this Point and Clicker occupied most of my time after school.
The Star Trek universe seems to fit really well within a P n C game using your wits and reflexes to solve puzzles and outwit your opponents. you get to do combat with them on the surface and in space, with some breathtaking dogfights between the Enterprise and, say, a Romulan Warbird, incertain situations. When you chat to the various NPC’s, you can choose the dialogue to respond and, depending on your choice of actions and dialogue, affect the score at the end, meaning loads of replay potential to better your score.
worthwhile if you’re a Star Trek fan or Adventure fan.
