Trek Games go mainstream....

As user made and open source games became more and more popular on the early net and in the PC gaming world it was just a matter of time before one of the established gaming companies released one.

Having just bought the rights to make games from the Original Series of Star Trek, Interplay decided to expand on the 2 most popular user made games of the time, MTREK and NetTrek.

Star Trek 25th Anniversary

Star Trek 25'th Anniversary was released just as the original show was reaching its jubilee. Based on what was basically a combined version of M and NetTrek the game was the first mainstream PC based game for the computer, and it took the gaming world by storm. From the classic Star Trek original series introduction to the fights that made the TOS series so popular.

By today's standards the game looks very basic, but look past it and you'll see a game that is extremely complex for the basic systems it was played on back then. Star Trek 25th Anniversary is STILL the top selling game of all time for the Star Trek license and no other game has yet to come near it.

 

 

25th Anniversary

The game itself ran like a mini adventure series, exactly the way it was on the original show. Each mission had its own sub missions which also had multiple endings. You were rated by Starfleet at the end of each missions and the experience and ratings you gain is transferred over to your officers as well as you.

All the officers are here: Animated versions of Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Uhura, Sulu, and Chekov are featured in the game, though most of the time it's the big three - Kirk, Spock, and McCoy - who beam down to the planet on away missions (and yes, there are "red shirts" too). To solve puzzles, you must manipulate characters using all the commands familiar to adventurers: look, use, talk, walk, take, and so forth. Interplay also added combat sequences to the game, and while these action segments are rather simplistic - a mouse works fine for guiding the ship - you still have all the usual command functions at your disposal. You use hotkeys or click on icons, and it's up to you to make sure all the proper procedures are followed, from raising shields and powering up weapons to hailing ships and setting warp speed and impulse power. And hearing the voices of the original cast members is an added thrill for Trek fans.
