Star Trek games return to the Mac and PC via GOG.com

If you're a retro-gamer hankering for a taste of the 1990s, make your way over to GOG.com and check out the new Star Trek games available for download. Two of them run on the Mac, Windows, and Linux, and one runs on Windows only. But at $5.99, you can pick and choose which you want.

Interplay announced Thursday the release of the games, including Star Trek 25th Anniversary, originally published in 1992, and its sequel, Star Trek: Judgement Rites, published in 1993. Both of those games are available for Mac, Linux and Windows. A third game, Star Trek: Starfleet Academy, is available for Windows. All games are DRM-free, so you can copy or archive them off your machine and not worry about having to activate them online.

The two multi-platform Star Trek games are point-and-click adventure games based on the original series. You man away teams on alien worlds and control the Enterprise's weapons, shields and communications during space missions.

Star Trek 25th Anniversary features the voice talents of the entire original Star Trek core cast of actors, including William Shatner, Leonard Nimoy, DeForest Kelley, James Doohan, George Takei, Walter Koenig and Nichelle Nichols. The musical score and sound effects are also derived from the original Star Trek television series.

Judgement Rites is a sequel featuring eight new "episodes" also featuring the original voice actors, sound effects and music. Starfleet Academy was originally published in 1997. It's a simulation game featuring full-motion video and 3D graphics, but it only runs on Windows.

  • Awesome! I'm going to have to check this out. I haven't played these in eons. I've also been playing Star Trek Online on my old iMac as well (it really runs in a wrapper called Cider and not a real Mac client running OSX code, but whatever. It works well enough for now).
  • Awesome. I remember playing this on my old Performa 63xx back in the day! Downloading now... Sent from the iMore App
  • Goodness this bring back memories... I remember spazzing out in front of a bunch of friends in high-school when I saw the ad for the 25th Anniversary in magazine. I remember playing this on (a likely) 386SX PC and thinking it was the greatest thing to have graced a computer screen. I'm interested in trying it out and see how it holds up. Wow, I see GOG has Tie Fighter and X-Wing, too. Man, the 90s were a fun time to be a kid and game.
