Storyline

In this FMV space combat simulator with elements of an adventure game, you play David Forester, a young human cadet at Starfleet Academy who is going through the extensive command training system that uses several simulator scenarios of missions with a variety of ship classes. In addition, you interact with your various classmates with the mundane situations on campus. You also have some meetings with Captain Hikaru Sulu and Pavel Chekov while Captain James T. Kirk assigns the missions. Through various dialogue options and other choices, you shape your story and must prove to yourself, your crew that's prone to infighting and Kirk that you are worthy of the captain's chair. The true test though arrives when your Vulcan member of the bridge crew gets hurt in an explosion.

Well designed AND challenging
31 August 2006 | by kev93085See all my reviews

My opinion of Starfleet Academy, which takes into consideration the same points as the only other comment, is that the game is well designed and challenging. These are two very good attributes when selecting a decent game.

Who want to play a game where it is too easy or predictable? No one. The storyline is intricate, the gameplay is amazing, the gameplay is as close to "real" as it could get, and they have special guest voices from time to time.

In the other comment, the game is discredited for using only two different weapons (phasers/disruptors and torpedoes). Is that not the way it always went on the show? Regardless, that's how it is in every other Star Trek game out there. So, why complain? It's just being "real". They also commented that they were stuck on disk 2 out of 5. Well, good. Everyone needs a good challenge. Obviously there is something they had not thought of to get through it. Be creative, use your heads, use your friends' heads. Think like a starship Captain.

This game is really very decent, and I hope anyone reading this can see it the way I do. After all, that one comment is the only complaint about this game I have ever seen/heard.
