I have been playing a fantastic pc version of this game for a couple of years. Nice graphics, great game play and you can create your own ships/captains. Go to this website for the download:

www.slightlysilly.net

Good luck and enjoy!

You should add it to the links section of the game page, and to this geeklist.

Have the downloads been removed from this site? I owned this game when I was young and would love to tinker with it again. I remember loving to flip through the rule book. Cheers!

Does anyone know how to reach Jason Robinson of slightlysilly.net The link for ST:STCS no longer works but I would love to have it again. It was on my old computer and is a very good gaming app. I'm not seeing how to email him through his blog...

Thanks,

It looks like the site has been inactive since March. A shame.

I know he has included the files needed to run it on windows 7 (I am playing it now). Not sure if they will help it run on win8. Maybe run it in compatibility mode?

I've done what he said to do several times and still can't get this incompatible piece of junk to run. So I once again uninstalled it. If you can get it to run I'm happy for you.

All hands,

I was having the same problems with Windows 7 (64 bit) compatibility. Kept crashing each time I ran the program. You need to download the following:

MSVBVM50.exe

...and run it. Don't bother with the link provided on the website, as it's the wrong version for 64 bit OS's.

One I installed the above file, the game ran fine.

Kind of a necropost, but perhaps someone else who was looking for this may stumble upon it.

As if I needed any more reason to detest the dumpster fire that is CBS television's legal division. From Jason Robinson's homepage:

ST:STCS Site – Make It Not So

I received a copyright infringement notice letter from CBS today referring to my computer conversion of the old FASA Star Trek: Starship Tactical Combat Simulator game. Consequently, I’ve taken the site down and the game is no longer being distributed. I guess FASA’s alternate universe got swallowed by a corporate black hole. Here’s hoping that Star Trek: Beyond will return to the roots of the series (morality plays set in the future) and doesn’t end up as another generic sci-fi setting.


So that's that. thumbsdown

It can still be found here:

Still can't get it to work on Win7 though.
