It is a classy mixture of the old faithful elements from the TV series and the latest advances in computer graphics and sound technology. One gets the feeling it's the sort of game you would find Captain Kirk playing with in a spare off duty moment. A must for all ST owners - I know that I'll certainly be spending a good deal of time with my ST as soon as the final copy comes through.

Une ambiance réaliste et captivante pour une quête futuriste où l'on retrouve les héros de la célèbre série... La partie sera longue mais la victoire superbe !

Die lange Wartezeit hat sich gelohnt: liegt doch jetzt ein fast perfektes Star Trek Spiel vor, das man nur noch in Details verbessern könnte. Alle Fans der Fernsehserie werden mit diesem Enterprise-Abenteuer ihre wahre Freude haben, doch auch viele andere Spiele-Freaks werden Star Trek mögen.

Also ehrlich: Wer einen ST besitzt und sich Star Trek nicht besorgt, ist selber schuld. Mit keinem anderen Spiel kann man seine Freunde so beeindrucken. Digitalisierte Soundeffekte, super Grafik und ein tolles Spielprinzip - hier ist einfach alles vorhanden, was das Spieler-Herz begehrt. Die Wartezeit hat sich gelohnt. Die Programmierer haben sogar noch die wenigen Mängel beseitigt, die wir im Happy-Testbericht angesprochen haben (zu leise Digi-Sounds, nur ein Spielstand speicherbar). Ein Lob auch an die tolle, ausführliche deutsche Anleitung.

If you're a big Star Trek fan you'll be bowled over by the graphics and sound as soon as you see the game, but your awe is unlikely to last. As with Defender of the Crown on the Amiga the inspired presentation masks humdrum gameplay, and even with the unhelpful icons you'll soon find survival and exploration far too easy. With a safe, well equipped star system as a base you can keep going as long as your interest lasts: but unless you're a mapping enthusiast with a low boredom threshold, that probably won't be very long.

With six different ways to complete the game and with the massive universe created in it, Star Trek provides plenty to do, but we did think that after several hours play the variety of do-able things began to look a bit thin. However, it is certainly a lot better than its first impression implies.
