On September 8th, Star Trek commemorated its 55th anniversary! Also on that date, Good Old Games scuppered my plans to put out some good old games based on the licence. I had Elite Force, Armada 2 and Away Team ready to go and as many of you may know, I'd spent copious amounts of time tinkering with Hidden Evil. That doesn't even mention the first Armada and Bridge Commander already being on the site. At laeast you play them all officially now, from a company with a team of testers and programmers and not from one random guy on the internet.
I still want to celebrate trekking through the stars, so here are five other games good enough for the likes of Kirk, Picard, Sisco and co. First up is Captain's Chair (1997 Paramount Pictures & Simon & Schuster Interactive), an educational CD-ROM that tells you everything about the bridges of five fictional starships. Then there's Deep Space Nine: Dominion Wars (2000 Paramount Pictures & Simon & Schuster Interactive), a real-time strategy set in the vase expanse of outer space. If you want a more grounded RTS, then New Worlds (2000 Paramount Pictures & Interplay Entertainment Corp) lands the strategic management on the planet's surface WarCraft style. The Next Generation try their hands at a complex 4X managerial strategy game in Birth of the Federation (1999 Paramount Pictures & Hasbro Interactive Inc), but not before those pesky Klingons train for a bit in the FMV-filled simulation game Klingon Academy (2000 Paramount Pictures & Interplay Entertainment Corp). Follow the jump to find out more!
On a side note, my real-world job does have me swamped at the moment, so both the video and the written reviews will have to be delayed a little (or a lot - who knows?). At least I got the games out on time, so let me know your thoughts in the comments!

Thanks so much for putting these up, my wife and I have been playing through your star trek uploads during her recovery from surgery and they've put a big smile on our faces!ReplyDelete
Incredible! Thanks you so much and live long and prosper!ReplyDelete
Thanx a lot man, I can't imagine how difficult it was to update on time after your plans got derailed by GOG. Keep up the good work!ReplyDelete
Awesome, thanks! I never even knew "Captain's Chair" existed!ReplyDelete
BTW, I cannot, for the life of me, get "Law and Order: Dead on the Money" and "Law and Order: Double or Nothing" to work well in PCEM. Any chance you'll take a crack at these sometime? I've got the disc ISO's if you want 'em.
Thanks a lot for putting in so much work. These look like some interesting Treks.ReplyDelete

I hope everything is o.k with Biffman 101, hell he doesn't owe as anything, on the contrary we owe him. As for those ungrateful sob's...ReplyDelete
Biffman, hope you're okay.ReplyDelete
I agree with what Shadowhunter said above. I really appreciate what you do, getting these games to work again. But you don't owe us anything!

Superman = Biffman
Thx x 1000 I hope everything is ok with You.
I hope all is okay.. It has been ages since this site has been updated... (3 months) ... As for those leaving extremely impolite and negative comments on this feed.. please show a little bit of maturity and compassion as something has obviously happened..ReplyDelete
is everything alright, you haven't updated since three months now? I hope you're not ill or something like that. This is NOT criticism, I am genuinely worried bc I got kind of used to your monthly updates.
Anyway, I hope all is well.
Uh oh, no activity since September? Please don't tell me you're done. I only just discovered you when searching frantically for how to run Byzantine: The Betrayal on modern PCs (THANK YOU SO MUCH, BY THE WAY! My computer was too fast for the original game on CD-ROM that I still had and I couldn't complete it) and you mustn't go dark now! Hopefully you're just taking a break. What you're doing is essential for keeping old games alive. Keep up the great work!ReplyDelete
I doubt he's done.. More than likely something happened, unfortunately...Delete
Are you mad?ReplyDelete
hope everything is fine, it's really worrying all this time without updates. Send news!ReplyDelete
Really concerned about Biffman. Is anyone in contact with him?ReplyDelete
Whos the name of the other guy on this site maybe he knows if Biffmans okay, i think Biffman has a family so unless its been busy lately for themDelete
No.. I looked on his Twitter, Facebook etc.. All his profiles have been inactive since September...Delete
Even his Youtube channel which I'm subscribed to is inactive...Delete
Someone edited the Chronomaster portion, cause GOG has added it, and stated it was removed on December 1st of this yearDelete

I really hope the main curator of this site is alright health-wise, he has usually given out a comment or two to notify people that something has taken a hold of him in real life but him not even commenting for close to 3 months now is concerning in my eyes.ReplyDelete
Whoa you got my message about Dominion Wars! Great work a always, thank you.ReplyDelete
