Though it risks damaging the space-time continuum by having characters from different times in history, this cartoon spaceship simulation is fun for Trekkies and Trekkers alike. In Star Trek Trexels II: The Next Resolution, an attack on the space station Equinox forces its evacuation, but suddenly, your ship gets sucked into a nearby anomaly and ends up in an unexplored area of space. So, while you have to fix your ship and manage your crew in this simulation, you also have to explore strange new worlds, and seek out new civilizations. All of which is done in a cutesy, cartoony way, one that somewhat covers up the fact that the Enterprise's Lt. Uhura and Voyager's Ensign Kim were born a hundred years apart.

If you can get past these continuity errors, you'll enjoy how this game mixes strategy and resource management in a fun way. Combat works like a simple real-time strategy game, but away missions are as much about exploring and gathering resources as they are about phasering some Borg in the face. That said, serious fans of space sims, or Star Trek, won't appreciate this game's somewhat silly approach, while newcomers to this kind of game may find it initially confusing. Still, if you always thought it was funny that the barfly on Deep Space 9 was named Morn, you'll have fun boldly going where no one's gone before in Star Trek Trexels II: The Next Resolution.
