What's this all about?
Star Trek: The Next Generation A Final Unity is an adventure game that was released in 1995. This game tries to incorporate a lot from the television show and in some ways plays out like a normal episode. You take control of Picard on the bridge and, within reason, do what Picard does best with engaging in diplomacy and dialogue. Or if that doesn't work there's always the tactical computer to engage in ship to ship combat. There are also away missions which are your traditional point and click style. It really is a game of many parts.
Most of the main cast reprise their roles and voice their characters in the game too. Which is pretty damn great!
I'll be doing a straightforward playthrough, I'll try to stay true to form of the show with the dialogue.
There are also different difficulty settings, I will be playing this on "Cadet difficulty which is the easiest. Mainly because it makes some things a lot faster and I'd rather concentrate on the storylines and dialogue. In Cadet mode, tactical combat is controlled by the AI, navigation is automatic as well as your crew and equipment selections for away missions. I do plan on showing off some of these features at some point. I also plan on making bonus videos for some of the missed dialogue and scenes.
If you need to discuss spoilers, please tag them as to be polite.
I'll aim to do at least one update a week, more may happen depending on my work schedule.
