I too remember playing this when it came out. Truly excellent game. Now I will have to dig out the 7 CDs it came on (and that was before DVDs … mumble years ago!). Wonder if it will still work? Wonder if I can still find the licence key :-(
I remember playing this game back in the 90's. I easily rate this as one of the best Star Trek games ever made. The story is absolutely fantastic.
I would imagine the graphics engine being out of date now, but it was still a blast to play.
The setting is Starfleet headquarters in the Presidio, San Francisco, CA, where hopeful cadets are trained to become Starfleet officers; the goal is to navigate successfully through over 20 missions and graduate as a Starfleet officer.
Academy life isn't easy--it's filled with subplots, internal politics and decisions that will impact not only the player but his cadet class and Starfleet itself. Among the cadet's teachers are Captain Kirk, Chekov and Sulu, who will help guide and teach the player what it takes and means to be a Starfleet officer.
Star Trek: Starfleet Academy allows players to command 4 classic Federation Starships (including the USS Enterprise) in combat against 30 3D real-time rendered spaceships from a cloaked Klingon Bird of Prey to a Romulan Heavy Cruiser. The game combines an adaptive artificial intelligence, cutting edge 3D graphics and real-time flight simulation/action play to create a truly galactic Star Trek experience.
