I just thought I'd put this out and see if anybody's still interested in
this old game. For those who haven't read backissues of Audyssey in a
while, it's an extremely detailed simulation of tactical combat in the
Star Trek universe which is almost completely accessible.
The game was originally written for Dos but has recently been revived by
one of its original authors. The Windows version isn't accessible as of
yet, but the author plans to do that once it starts becoming more than
just a straight conversion. I absolutely love this game, its atmosphere
is remarkable as is the level of detail and replay value. Most
conveniently, it is one of the games that I'm able to play since making
the switch to Linux as my primary opperating system a little while back.
If anybody's interested in getting this up and running, there's a yahoo
group which is quite well-frequented. That group is beginstarshipcombat.

The game itself can be found various places. A quick Google for "Begin:
Tactical Starship Simulation" will turn up one such, which also includes a
nifty blow-by-blow walkthrough of a battle.
