One of my favorite capital ship space sims of all time — in fact it’s in very close running with the Rules of Engagement games — is Star Trek: Klingon Academy. It’s a lovingly detailed cap ship sim that, thanks to its multiple stations and verbal order system, gives you meticulous control over nearly every aspect of your vessel. Unfortunately, since Windows XP I believe, I’ve not been able to get the game to run at all. Well, that’s all changed thanks to Jiří Dvořák, who has made some custom patches that allow the game to be run in (in my case) Windows 7 64-bit with widescreen resolution options. It runs like a total champ, and I couldn’t be happier. Check it out!
Now if you wanna enjoy this game’s fairly unique and singular experience, get yourself a copy with the manual if you can (Amazon, Ebay), then apply the 1.02 patch (you might have to open it with an unzip program and copy the files over to your game directory if you’re on a 64-bit OS, as I had, thanks to Glexn over on GOG for that tip), and then apply the patches linked above. You should then have a fully working copy of Klingon Academy. Now go out there and slay some Federation petaQ! ;)
