Star Trek: The Next Generation - The Transinium Challenge
You are Commander William T. Riker of the Federation Starship USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D). When the allied Aquila station comes under attack by unknown aliens, it's up to you and the crew of the Enterprise to solve the mystery, by exploring a historic ruined civilization, navigating your way through space, consulting the ship's experts (real Star Trek actors in digitized form), conversing with various aliens, and beaming down to various planets. The game's interface features no typing, due to context-sensitive icons and buttons.

The box advertises the game as the first in a new line of Star Trek games and the manual includes an advert for the next title in the series: Star Trek: A Hostage to Reason, this time starring the crew of the original series. The player would have played as Commander Spock and been given the task of rescuing Captain Kirk, kidnapped by Romulans. The game was never released.
This game appears to take place sometime between the end of the first season of Star Trek: The Next Generation and the beginning of its second. This can be determined by the story and the cover.
