Description official description

The Enterprise came under sudden attack, sustaining major damage to virtually all decks. Leaking coolants contaminated the entire stock of raw protein substance, the base material of all the galley's synthesized foods. Chief Engineer Scott estimates that repairs to our warp engines will take eight or nine constant days at the very least. If we don't find an adequate food source soon, the entire crew of the Enterprise will starve.

A Great Star Trek Text Adventure

The Good
This game is a solid text adventure, not one of the best, but very good. However, it has to be one of the best Star Trek games ever created, not that that is saying much.

It has a great narrative, imaginative story line and good ending.

The Bad
The only real issue with this game is the difficulty. Granted I was 10 when I played it, but even after 100 hours (possibly more) I was never able to finish it. Years later I did go back and finish it in one sitting, but I still needed a guide to get me past one trouble spot.

The Bottom Line
This game really puts you into Captain Kirk's shoes. Oh ya, if you do play the game here’s a hint, there is a way past the quick sand, you just have to figure out what to use.
