Best of the Franchise
I'm a big Star Trek fan, I've been raised on it since the original series. A Final Unity is probably the best Star Trek game of them all. Other games seem to focus on ship-to-ship or phaser rifle combat more than the core ideas that made Star Trek so unique. A Final Unity is at its core an adventure game, like Sierra and Lucas Arts' catalog of the early and mid '90s. I believe that Adventure is the best genre for the series. The focus is on discovery and diplomacy, puzzle and problem solving. Away missions require you to be familiar with everyone's talents. The entire main cast is there to provide fully voiced dialogue. There are moments of combat, especially if you decide to take leave of your senses and pilot right into the Neutral Zone. I like that the game gives you that level of control. However, if you do not wish to deal with combat, you can press the "delegate" button and let Tactical Officer Worf handle it. The entire game really feels like one really long episode. Any fan of the series owes it to themselves to pick it up, especially if you miss what real Star Trek and good science fiction is supposed to be.
