Star Trek Generations is a first person shooter with adventure game and strategy game elements by Microprose, based on Star
Trek Generations, the seventh film in the Star Trek film franchise.
All of this is brought to life in this game, with a succession of 12 away missions on various planets linked by strategic space
combat, and Stellar Cartography planning to track Soran's next move. Away missions are in first-person 3D and feature action and
puzzle solving. Each is played out by a different member of the crew, all of whom have their voices digitised. Some sub-plot
elements and related video sequences from the stars (Patrick Stewart, William Shatner and Malcolm McDowell) are not in the film
and have been added to the game.
Gameplay: The game tries to combine many computer game genres in one, not distancing from the main non-linear philosophy of
alternate paths to complete the game, followed in other Star Trek games.
The major portion of the game occurs in Stellar Cartography (also appearing in the movie, although only for some minutes)
where the player plans their next moves, the main opponents being time and Soran. This part of the game includes the strategic
part where the player has to calculate and guess where Soran could be, in order to travel there and stop him before he destroys
The main gameplay is when a crew member beams to a planet or space station where the game switches to first-person
action/adventure. The main objective of every away mission is finding and fighting with Soran, who beams seconds before being
killed by the player. The mission is then successful; however, not all away missions need to be succeeded to win the game.
Some enemy ships can also be encountered while in space. The game then switches to pure tactical/simulator where the player
will control the Enterprise against the enemy ship(s). The fighting system is simplified and improved over the extremely difficult
tactical part of A Final Unity.
