About This Game

Boldly go where no man has gone before...


Beam aboard the Starship Enterprise for Interplay's classic adventure game Star Trek: 25th Anniversary!

Discover and explore new planets, starships and space stations. Control away teams, including Kirk, Bones, Spock, and the occasional, expendable 'Red Shirt' security officer. Use tricorders, communicators, phasers, teleporters and other gadgets to proceed through each mission.

The best defense is a strong offense—and I intend to start offending right now.
-- Captain James T. Kirk

I loved this game when growing up, when my father decided to go from Apple to Windows this was the first game he got me to play, the CD version. ^.^ I spent hours trying to play and beat all the missions, and to see how often I could kill the red shirts too.

Playing it again is a blast from the past, one I am very pleased with. ^.^ I do recommend this if your a fan of TOS Star Trek, and have a sense of adventure.

I only wish the last mission wasn't so broken... it's kinda cryptic, and almost impossible with the last few tasks before you end it, won't spoil it for those who haven't played.

A classic (sometimes mind-bending and pixel-hunting) adventure game with some space battling mixed in. The 25h Anniversary represents seven episodes from TOS with all the original actors and refers to the series and movies frequently.

It's difficult mostly because it's just as odd sometimes as all the other adventure games used to be back in the day. With a load of trial and error and "let's talk about everything to everyone and use everything and everyone on everything and everyone until something works" it's solvable. That's the main difficulty. And then there's the seventh episode where the space battle mode goes from fighting one or tops two enemies into one against a superstrong enemy ship plus a couple of other ones. At that point I gave up, after a few tries, I admit.

If you have the boxed version - as I do - it's a collectors item.. otherwise, it's shelfware 'milking' a franchise.

For those complaining there is no manuak. There is. If you look to the right on the main screen for buying, there is the option to View Manual. And the Map that you are looking for is there. Its not a great map from the book, but that is how it was done back then. I am providing the URL that you can copy and paste, or even click on. But copy and paste to a browser is better. Then you can save the manual or print it.

An old school point'n'click adventure game that puts you at the helm of the Enterprise with you as Captain Kirk and your crewe & ship at your disposal.

There is no major plot or anything, but rather several shorter "episodes" where you're given a mission to discover more about going-ons on planets/stations or other ships.

The UI is not very intuitive at first, but once you take a look at the provided manual (go into your game manuals to get it), it won't take much time for you to get around.

Basically - the gameplay is divided into the ship section (where you command the ship, use weapons/shields and combat other vessels) and ground missions (classic point'n'click of the early 90's).

This version of the game comes with full voiceovers by the original crew and even though most are good, it sounds William Shatner wasn't really motivated to do them as almost all his lines sound dull and out of place.

Regardless - it's a good, short old-school adventure that all ST fans will love.

Kirk out...

This game is an instant buy for fans of Star Trek especially fans of the original series. Point-and-click adventure fans should also check this game out because it is one of the standout examples of the genre. We absolutely love this title and can't say enough good things about it. Just remember you need to find a copy of the map either in this download or somewhere else online so you can progress in the game.

a very interesting game

is quite hard to know where to go and what do without a guide but still is a very fun game

even tough the high price is worth it for retro games and star trek fans alike

This was my first time playing it (never did play it in 1992, when I was 3 years old :P )

I did grow up as a fan of TOS though because my dad owned the majority of TOS on VHS.
So this game really hit home with me.

I'm still getting into it (on Mission 3 as of writing this) but it really does capture the feeling of the old
TV series.

The game can be a little frustrating at times though.
it takes a little bit to get used to the control style; though I'll be honest I've seen much worse and for that old
of a game it does things pretty darn well.

Also it's relatively easy to get stuck. (Meaning don't know how to proceed)
Though I suppose that could be considered par for the course for this genre of game.
I had to glance at a walkthrough myself on the second mission .. though I do my best not to do this.

Also being a DOS game the sound stutters mildly from time to time.. I suppose that should be expected but would be nice if it didn't happen.

And finally an issue that I find the most annoying, though really not all THAT bad, is the Star Map navigation.
It is impossible, and I mean that literally, impossible to nagivate without either the manual on hand or a Star Chart
which can be found by one of the friendly people in the forums or somewhere online.
I really despise needing anything outside of the game, to play the game lol.
But really I suppose it's not so bad to have the Star Chart up on a laptop or second monitor, or something;
or even better yet printed out. (Man if only I had a printer :P )

If you like this game, you might also consider getting Judgment Rites which is the sequel.
I am gonna be playing that once I complete this one, myself.

Anyways.. overall awesome game, highly recommend it to anyone who it looks interesting to,
particularly Trek fans.

Would be nice if a copy of the game manual was included, but its easy enough to find online.

If you like star trek and adventure games and dont mind the age of the game then this is a good one.

*Edit*
I have since been informed that the manual is avaliable on the store page.

Set nostalgia to maximum Mr Scott:

I remember playing this game back when it was new on an old 486 computer, and it's just as enjoyable now as it was back then.

This game is like the 4th season that never happened, with each level being a self contained episode where Kirk, Spock, McCoy and a Red shirt beam down and save the day using a combination of problem solving, diplomacy, and action.

Each level begins with Starfleet ordering you to go to a star system, after which you go to the star map and click the destination. If you clicked the wrong star system you would get attacked and be potentially destroyed. This was an early anti software piracy feature before the days of DRM and always on internet connections. During the mission you and the three other shore party members interact with the environment and each other to achieve the mission obejectives. When interacting with NPCs, you as Captain Kirk, sometimes have dialogue options ranging from diplomatic to snarky. At the end of the mission you're given a score by a Strafleet admiral based on your mission performance.

The only parts of the Enterprise you really see are the bridege, and the trasporter room before you beam down to the mission. A feature I always like was accessing the ships computer by pressing "c" on the bridge and searching for information to solve a mission puzzle, or to just look random stuff up.

This is the Enhanced CD-ROM version which includes voiced dialogue by the characters, additional sounds, etc. I liked how the computer read out was voiced just like on the show, added a nice touch.

The only "problems" I have with the game is that outside of the bridge you don't really see or interact with the other characters (Scotty, Sulu, etc.), and the mission evaluations at the end of each mission can feel somewhat arbitrary. You can't really tell why Starfleet gave you say 91% instead of 100%.

Star Trek 25th Anniversary and it's sequel Judgement Rites are two very rare Star Trek games in that they're actually good (imho). They capture the essence of the series by emphasing thought over action, by which I mean you'll be using your tricorder more than your phaser. A must have for fans of the series, and if you enjoy old school click based adventures you should probably check this out as well.

I've randomly, in my moments of insanity over the past 20 years, had the death music from this game go through my head. It's hilarious when you accidentally kill lots of people and hear it. It was hard not to do it over and over again back when this game was new. Half the fun was finding ways to kill everybody, good or bad, and messing with Bones to elicit fun responses in all the scenarios. I also like watching ragdoll Max Payne falling to his death and bending through rafters, so take it for what you will.

The game has great voice acting and dialogue options. This was back when they actually tried to produce good content and didn't try and skate by on graphics like most new games that suck. You can google the starmap and manual if it's too hard to figure out. Definitely recommend. The story and realism it provides will never be dated.

What a great day this is! Steam and GOG.com is bringing back so many classics. The CD-ROM edition is the *superior* version of this. It also makes it easier (for simple folks) to load and play. I have the originals but to get everything in place to work. The hand drawn art is a thing of beauty. Everything has the familiar look and the voice acting wasn't "phoned" in so it feels geniune. The 8 espiodes in the game have a original series narrative to it so it's like a lost season. Judgement Rites is the same way. BTW keep the map handy, I forgot you need it to get from point A to point B! Otherwise, you'll get to enjoy the outnumbered ship to ship battle to the pain!

So I remember being a young child in 1993 and can honestly say this was so much better than DOOM.

A Point&Click game that while challenging was a lot of fun. The graphics are rather dated and will on modern PC's be limited to a small windowed screen. Which is fine because that leaves room for a notepad file and the navigation map to be on your screen for quick reference.

Now just to wait for the rest of the old catalog of Interplay games to come to Steam.

This is a oldschool game and can seem rather dated by today's standards. But the voice acting is all the original cast and top notch.
