There Is a Place in the Galaxy Where Legends Are Born

Welcome to Starfleet Academy

Kirk. Chekov. Sulu. Before they were legends, they were cadets at the most celebrated training facility in the universe - Starfleet Academy.

A vast array of missions will test your ingenuity, leadership and courage - and determine if you've got what it takes to graduate first in your class. Going where no simulator has gone before, you'll take on 30 of the universe's finest starships, from cloaking Klingon Bird of Preys to the Romulan heavy cruiser. All the while, Captain Kirk (William Shatner), Commander Chekov (Walter Koenig) and George Takei in a special appearance as Captain Sulu, are there to provide instruction as well as inspiration.

Key Features:

The first and only star Trek action/flight simulator

Reviews:

Bay Area Computer Currents, December 22, 1997

"'I need those phasers NOW, Scotty!' Even if you're not a Star Trek fan, you'll enjoy playing Starfleet Academy simply because it's a great game, and those who've dreamed of saving the Federation will love it.

"You, a Starfleet Academy cadet, play the captain of a Starship. You're in the virtual safety zone of an Academy simulator, but that hardly takes you off the hook. From the video/animated prelude featuring George Takei (Lt. Sulu) and William Shatner (Capt. Kirk) right on through the combat action and other video sequences, the game captures the full flavor of the classic Star Trek. When red alert sounds, the shooting starts, and the music plays, it's a compelling, almost cinematic experience. And since you're in a simulator, there's no chance you'll wind up as Another Dead Ensign, the expendable extra who spoke a line or two on the show before falling prey to that week's enemy. You might feel like a dead ensign through the first few levels, but the worst you'll suffer are pointed words about your inadequacies. You can play with a mouse and keyboard, but using a joystick helps a lot in combat situations.

"Of course the game involves lots of blasting away at enemy ships, but you also need to learn skills like handling the crew, learning the ship's sub-systems, apprehending criminals, and bringing back items of interest to starfleet. After all, there's The Prime Directive to worry about. I made it to the fourth mission before I turned in this review, and I'm on the sixth now, at press time. How could I stop when the simulated fate of the known universe is in my hands?"
