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

Still one of the best Star Trek games ever released, but it's both less expensive and compatible with more OS platforms if you buy it through GOG instead of Steam.

Regardless of where you buy it from if you want a game that captures the feel of classic Star Trek this is a great one. This is my first time playing it in over twenty years and first time playing it with the full voice acting by the original actors, that extra touch really adds a lot.

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.

I remember playing this game on my old 486 DX2 back in the day. This game STILL holds its fun. All of the original cast member voices are in this version. If you are a fan of TOS then you should pick this up.

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.

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.

Back in the early 90s, I bought Star Trek: Judgment Rites for the MAC and loved the game so much as I was starting to become fan of the series and movies. I never knew until much later that Star Trek 25th Anniversary was actually the predecessor to Judgment Rites but I always wanted to play it for years. Interesting to note that around this time, I also finished the Star Trek 25th Anniversary game for NES which was pretty good considering the limitations of the console.

I would highly recommend this game to any hardcore Star Trek fans as every level plays out like an episode from the series. It has superb voice acting from the cast of the Original Series, authentic sound and music, challenging puzzles that took me days to solve without looking at a walkthrough and overall it’s just a really good game that captures the spirit of Star Trek far more than Star Trek Online. The main problem is of course that the graphics are dated, but it’s easy to move past this once you put a few hours into it. The final battle is really tough, but not Kobayashi Maru impossible.

As soon as I saw this, I pretty much bought it instantly (damn you Steam for being so convenient). After sinking a couple hours into it so far, here are my thoughts.

Pros:

- Fantastic voice acting and writing - The original cast is present in all their glory.
- Great writing - The episodic storyline feels like an authentic piece of the series.
- Good dosbox tweaks - While it's clear that Interplay didn't put a lot of effort into porting this one (basically just bundling it with Dosbox and auto-launching), I do have to give them credit for customizing the dosbox settings for relatively smooth playback. The resulting experience is the way it SHOULD be played.
- Creative puzzles - There are some great puzzles to solve here (which is a critical part of any adventure game right?).

Neutral:
- Very minor bugs - There are some extremely subtle bugs (for example num pad keys not typing text until numlock key is hit twice). Nothing that significantly impacts gameplay.
- Nothing new - I get it. It's a port of a classic adventure game and Interplay wants to maximize profits by re-introducing it. That's fine. If you've already played it though, don't expect any major (or minor) differences.

Admittedly, I think I'm experiencing this with rose-tinted glasses. Still, if you'd a child of the 90's like me and grew up with this, it's an easy buy.
