Space, the Final Frontier. These are the voyages of the starship ENTERPRISE and it is your mission to take command of the federation flagship and safely solve another space adventure.
Captain Picard stepped down from his command chair in order to access your performance for the duration of this mission. You are Commander Riker and at this point you command the most legendary spaceship ever created.
An outpost has been attacked and it is your mission to investigate, prevent a repeated attack and bring the perpetrators to justice. Not to mention to find out it’s not all as it seems and that you’ll have to dig deeper under the surface. Let’s just say, you’ll stay true to the original mission of the Enterprise, to seek out new life…
The game unfortunately has no sounds. It supports EGA graphics, but it does not use the full potential of its 16 colors. Still, there were many digitalized scenes which should give you the feel of being a part of the series. Unfortunately those scenes are only in black and white (with a few little details being shown in color – like lipstick or things like that) and the images are not very clear. They do provide the atmosphere. The interaction buttons and the backgrounds are in colors, but still, graphically this game is far from appealing. The idea of putting in the scenes taken from the series is a good one, but it didn’t work as planed. I mean, if you only see a few lines and a face you can hardly distinguish features on isn’t of much help.
Apart from the graphics, the game is very good, although somewhat short. You need to use the mouse (you can choose not to, but the game seems to crash if you do that). You will get different options and the ones you can choose from will be highlighted.
Your crew will also be of great help to you as some crewmembers will remind you of what should be done (not always though) and there’s always captain Picard to consult, although he’s not really of any help.
So sit back and enjoy a good galactic adventure that will mostly appeal to all the Trekies out there, but will also provide enough entertainment and challenge for every adventurer bold enough to go where no man has gone before!
Dear Abandonia visitors: We are a small team that runs one of the largest DOS Games websites in the world. We have only 3 members of staff, but serve 450,000 users and have outgoing costs like any other top site for example: our servers, power, rent, programs, and staff. Abandonia is something special. It is a library of old games for you to download. It is like an old gaming arcade with all the old games in their original format. Abandonia is a place where you can find great old games and have fun four hours and years. To protect our independence, we are dependent of our friends using the site. We run on donations averaging around 6 USD (5 Euro). If everyone reading this gave the price of a cup of coffee, our fundraiser would be made easier.
