Move from cadet to admiral in a superb rendition of the "main-frame" Star Trek. All the bells and whistles one could wish for; this reviewer still plays it today, even though the graphics are primitive.
Une grandiose reprise de la série d'aventures galactiques bien connue, Star Trek. Des graphismes symboliques guère nouveaux pour des combats ternes. Une très grande facilité d'emploi. La difficulté du jeu progresse tellement qu'il semble impossible d'atteindre le rang d'amiral. Les aspects tactiques prédominent.

The sound is a passable imitation of a Spectrum burping and the graphics are almost non-existent. Five years ago when it was written (according to the copyright date on the box), this was no doubt the state-of-the-art computer-game. It is undoubtedly every the ultimate Trek game containing every bell and whistle you could wish for, but I would be surprised if anyone other than a certified "Trekie" would think that it was worth considering at this price.
