Shields … shields!

This past weekend I picked up the DVDs of my favorite old-school Star Trek movies. After watching them for so long on VHS, they seem like completely new titles.

Watching Kirk and crew bound around the galaxy has reminded me of the Starfleet Academy games, Starfleet and Klingon Academy. I still have the Klingon, but haven’t played it in ages. Both games are great – and by great, I mean “story-great.” Honestly, the gameplay isn’t anything to write home about – but the story carries the action, and that goes a long way in my book.

That said, I may never finish Star Trek: Klingon Academy – but I’m still hoping to someday. The older I get, the more I know I’m going to have to put off some games until the rest home… “Nurse, please bring me my juice – AND my favorite controller!”
