This game works with: Mini vMac

With the ship stranded in a mysterious star system and all out of the protein it needs to synthesize food, Kirk leads a team to the nearest planet to seek out a fresh supply.

As in other games from TRANS Fiction Systems, the player must lead without acting unilaterally. Kirk, like the Presidente of Chimerica, will have to rely on his staff if he is to get anywhere. (The manual, which discusses this and other topics, is well worth a look.)

The game has been installed on a playable 800K disk image for convenient use with Mini vMac, but it plays just as well from a System 6 hard drive on a Mac II, or an MFS floppy on a Mac 512K. Mac OS 7 crashes it, though. (Note that the back cover and "Loading the Program" insert disagree on whether the game disk is bootable. The back cover is correct; my copy had nothing but the application itself on a 400K disk.)

Version: 1.0
