Fun fact: Having every sound effect from this game permanently burned into your memory from having played it approximately 14,582,184 times at age 5 back in 1986 makes the classic Star Trek episode, “The Alternative Factor”, much more enjoyable, since that's the episode most of the sound effects in this game come from (although there's also one sound bite each from "Mirror, Mirror" and "City on the Edge of Forever" as well). You may occasionally get a feeling of confusion at the episode's nonsensical plot, but then Spock and his computer will do that "doo, doo, doo! Captain!" duet, or Kirk will say, "All stations to... immediate alert status", or the Enterprise will fire its phasers with the orchestra swelling, and your annoyance will be broken up by the feeling of, hey, there's that sound effect from that game!

The game itself is, of course, just the Demo World that came with World Builder, with a bunch of Star Trek sounds added, the sprite for the Robot replaced with a picture of Nomad, and an extra puzzle added at the end whose solution involves repeating the exact lines Kirk says in the phaser firing scene at the end of "The Alternative Factor." Man, someone must have really liked that episode.

Highly recommended for those with adorable Jetsons bubble timeships, captured Klingon battlecruisers, or other means to time travel back to early childhood.
