Star Trek 25th Anniversary is a click and point adventure game featuring Captain James T. Kirk and his crew in seven missions.

Version Differences

There are two versions: The ~4MB floppy disk version was released in 1992, and the ~350MB CD-ROM version was released in 1993.

Audio

The CD-ROM version improved the game's sound effects and added voices (by the voice actors of the original TV series, no less).

Mission 7

The final mission in the game, titled "Vengeance", is much shorter in the floppy version. In response to players' feedback, it was expanded in the CD release.

Starfleet

The Starfleet admiral can be either male or female in the Floppy version, but they will always be a female in the CD version.

Ending Title Card

In addition to added narration and voice-over, the ending title card that memorializes Gene Roddenberry (the creator of Star Trek) has received a short voice-over praising his life.

Anti-Piracy

The player has to select 1 out of 20 possible destinations on the star map on each mission. The destination names are not shown in-game, but in the manual that comes with the game. Traveling to an incorrect destination will cause a battle to start which will most likely result in a game-over. This isn't too bad considering you can reload a savegame and try again, but having to do this on every mission means you have to try 140 times at worst.
