Game Review

Star Trek 25th Anniversary is an adventure game and space combat sim based on the Star Trek universe, developed and published by Interplay for DOS and Amiga in 1992. Funnily enough, this 25th anniversary missed the real 25th anniversary of the show by about 6 months.

It is primarily based on the 1960’s Star Trek tv show where James T. Kirk is the captain. I do have to admit to being a fan, even back this far, judge all you want. The game features the original crew of the USS Enterprise of Captain Kirk, Spock, Scotty, Uhura, Chekov, Sulu, and McCoy and follows several different missions they embark upon. The episodes, written by the author of the series, are a direct continuation of what was seen on TV. That's why the game is also considered the 4th season of the TV series, that stopped at the 3rd season on TV

The game has two different view modes, one on the bridge from a first-person view. While on the bridge each character controls a different part of the ship and takes their orders from the captain, whom the player controls. The second is a third-person view when the team goes out on planetary missions. When the team leaves for a planet’s surface the team is Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and of course a ‘red shirt’; those poor red shirts. The majority of combat will involve the ship and be done from the bridge view. However, you can use your phaser while on a planet, but the Federation encourages non-violence while adventuring. While on a planet Kirk and crew must solve puzzles, collect items, and interact with the natives.

Star Trek 25th anniversary is listed as the best game in the Star Trek gaming franchise. Everything holds true to the show from the characters, to the environments, and types of missions. The CD-ROM version of the game got the best reviews from critics and was said to be the first Star Trek game “to deliver.” The original cast, including William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy e DeForest Kelley gave their voices. This reason alone is enough to consider this game a real gem.

    @Manu Yeah ... I had thought of something like that too ... Copyright ... I just hope they have all the rights to do so, since this is an outdated game. Thanks anyway for the reply.

    @Maurizio DOS versions are no longer available for copyright reasons. You can find them on GOG.
    But you can try the Amiga versions, which are identical apart from the voices.

    Game not working. There is no DOS version, as announced in the titles. I never expected this from gamenostalgia, usually your files are very reliable, you can see that there is always a first time! Pity. I cannot cast any votes, as I have not been able to try the game.
