    I'm trying to identify an old Star Trek 'game' that I had for the PC in the late 90's and am really struggling finding any reference to it online, so I was hoping you might help!

    I use the term 'game' as it didn't have a game as such, it was more of a simulator.

    It was basically a bridge simulator of all the main ships from the Star Trek universe up 'til that point: Enterprise, Voyager, Defiant etc. It used real photography that you could rotate in 360 degrees (I think) to look all around the ship's spaces. You could move around the spaces in a Myst-style, investigate everything on screen, interact with consoles, go inside turbolifts.

    When you 'used' a console, you could press the buttons on the interface. For example, you could go up to the weapons console on a bridge and fire torpedoes / phasers.

    It wasn't Bridge Commander or Starship Creator if that's what you're going to suggest. It wasn't really a game at all, more of an interactive digital museum piece. If you know what it is, please tell me!

    Could it be the Star Trek Encyclopedia on "CD-ROM"? Or the Omnipedia? (Were they different? I canna remember)

    Only Star Trek game I remember playing was a TNG point-n-click adventure, but that was something different.

    I remember a Star Trek Voyager FPS where you could visit pretty much the entire ship between missions. Forgot what it's called though.

    That was an official mod/expansion for Star Trek: Elite Force, wasn't it? The FPS sirtacos said, not the one in the OP.

    That's almost certainly Captain's Chair.

    I'd kick the living daylights out of the producers of Tipping Point - Ghandi
