With the possible exception of Ensign Kije, all of the so-called "redshirts" in this game are named after members of the development team. By episode, they are as follows:
Interplay faithfully reproduced several music themes from the TV show. The game is configurable to play with several sound cards and even supported General Midi.
To complement the earlier statement about installation times, the sequel, Judgment Rites, had a very long install however. At least 90 minutes, because as well as copying the data from several floppies, it had to decompress the data on the hard drive.
The game used a star map as a copy protection scheme. Without the manual, you could not navigate to the next mission.
The game was rereleased in a "talkie" CD-ROM after they became the norm. Interplay went the extra mile and reassembled the entire original crew for the production.
The game was rather infamous in its day for having the most excrutiatingly long install process imaginable, despite being on only five 3 1/4s. Average install times ran around 90 minutes.
A rather silly epileptics warning from the manual.
