Game description

From the back cover
To play the all-new Star Trek© Trivia Challenge™, you'll need your brain on the bridge, your finger on the pulse of pop culture, and your tongue firmly in your cheek!
You'll need to know that Khan likes to serve his revenge cold and that Ricardo Montalban once pitched a product for serving sandwiches hot.
That Data is, indeed the "little wooden boy" from the Star Ship Enterprise and that Woody Allen's "Stardust Memories" featured a young Brent Spiner.
Yup, we got your alternate Trek universe right here. Prime directive? To lighten up. Phasers? Set on FUN!

Gameplay

Much like the previous game by Sound Source Interactive, Star Trek: The Game Show, the game takes the form of a quiz show with questions being drawn from both The Original Series and The Next Generation as well as from greater body of pop culture that has built up around these two series.

When starting a game players can choose to have the questions involve either one of the series. Alternatively, a "Combination Game" can be played where questions involve both The Original Series and The Next Generation. The game can be either played solo or with up to three players playing and competing against one another on the same computer.

The game then takes place across two rounds, the "Combination Game" featuring a Original Series round first followed by a Next Generation round, the interface being suitably themed for each series. There are four categories (each with a Star Trek themed name) to every round each category featuring four questions.

There is then a final round where players are required to guess what a particular phrase is drawing from either one of the shows. After the end of the game player's high scores are added to the in-game high scores chart.
