Summary

The most awesome Star trek game I have ever played.

The Good

Very addicting. Requires strategy and planning in advance. More sofisticated and complex than any of the many Star Trek games I have played. (I have been playing them since early 1980 when I got my Apple ][ and have seen a wide variety of these games.) I would rank this game 10 out of a possible 10 for this type of game. I was first introduced to this game in 1985 where I worked. We had many IBM PC computers in our department and many people got addicted to it. The original diskette got passed around from place to place and was installed on many PC's with many user's scores and rankings.

The Bad

There is one award that no one seems to have ever gotten. I have tried many different ways to get it. It may be a bug in the game. Other than this minor fault, there is nothing that I don't like about the game.

The Bottom Line

The best Star Trek game ever made.
