          Any Email should have 'Echoes from the Past' in the title. I get a lot of 
    'join my ST RPG' stuff, and could easily mistake your mail for requests to get 
    involved in simming, which I delete.

          --Introduction--
    
          Hello. This is the hardest game, and you're reading a hand-holding 
    walkthrough for it. The dreaded mines of Orientis Gamma IIIB and the fabled 
    Frozen Ruins shall torment you no more. You shall be victorious.
    
          --Little recommendation--
    
          I cannot emphasize enough the importance that you emulate this game. You 
    will need to use save state in order to 'force' this game. But if you are 
    looking here, I assume that you already know this. The ROM is not easy to find, 
    but does exist on the net. If you have spent over about 4 hours trying to find 
    it, Email me, and I'll see what I can do to track it down for you, or even 
    consider Emailing you the ROM. Another note- If you're playing this through a 
    Genecyst, you'll have to set Raster effects on before the ship battles will be 
    understandable.
    
          --Revision History--
          Ver 0.1
          Started the guide. At this point, it does not cover the mine mission.
    
          Ver 0.5
          Massive update to the walkthrough. Now covers up through the Test of 
    Compassion.
    
          Ver 1.1
          Walkthrough now covers the whole game. A little bit about boarding the 
    Nakatomi added. Little additions all over. If I don't get any requests for more 
    stuff, this will probably be the last version.
    
          The most recent version of this FAQ can be found at GameFAQs.com.
    
          ---PART ONE: BRIDGE CONTROLS---
    
          1. Communications
    
          Here's where you talk to people while on the Enterprise. When the blue 
    ball above the viewscreen is flashing and there's a little beeping noise, you're 
    being hailed by someone. (Refer to the specifics of the walkthrough to find out 
    if it's a good thing or not, and whether or not you should answer the hail). 
    Talking in a hail is simple. When someone is talking to you, read what they say 
    and then continue. When you are talking to them, press right or left to switch 
    between choices you have of what to say. Saying the right thing can often save 
    you the trouble of getting into a battle. Ships (and also possibly planets) can 
    be hailed even if the blue thing isn't flashing, but don't always expect a 
    response.
    
          2. CONN
    
          Here's where you steer the Enterprise through space. Indicate what star 
    cluster you want, then press A. Keep going through the menus until you see what 
    you want. Once you've selected your destination, press C to get the warp menu. 
    Then press left or right to alter your speed (and time spent cruising through 
    space. Remember, like all windows in this game, you can usually press up or down 
    when at the top or bottom of the list of selections to get more choices. A note 
    about speed: going really fast will wear down your warp engines, while going 
    really slow is just begging for trouble with the Romulans. Go fast, and repair 
    your engines when you get there.
    
          3. Sensors
    
          Here's where you can look at what's in the viewscreen and get pointless 
    numbers and little hints to what's about to happen. It's useless, but I'll tell 
    you in the walkthrough whenever it tells you something interesting. You'll be 
    able to read the interesting stuff here, so there's no point for it in the game 
    itself, except to slow you down when you try to quickly get from the viewscreen 
    to tactical :(
    
          4. Computer
    
          Here's where you save your game (unless, of course, you're emulating it. 
    Then you use save state.) The only useful options here are 'Record Mission Log' 
    and 'Review Mission Log'. 'Record' saves the game, while 'Review' loads it. 
    Using the words 'Save' and 'Load' would have been a lot simpler, but the game's 
    designers persist with their Trekkieness wherever they can even if it means some 
    poor gamer loses their file 'cause the options look so similar. The game also 
    automatically starts you at the beginning, so you have to take caution to not 
    overwrite your real game while trying to load it. Another note: When your 
    'Computer' system has been overly damaged, you will not be able to save or load. 
    That means you've gotta wait for the enemy ship to kill you in order to start 
    over :(
    
          There's also an incredible amount of obscure star trek information in 
    here. It has no bearing on the game, so read it while you're waiting for me to 
    update this FAQ.
    
          5. Tactical
    
          You really needn't concern yourself with this place until you get to a 
    required battle. If you run into Romulan trouble, get to warp. You should only 
    fight when you absolutely have to, in which case I will walk you through it in 
    the walkthrough.
    
          6. Engineering
    
          Here's where you repair stuff. This is probably the most important part of 
    the Bridge. When a system is damaged, there will be a red bar to the right of 
    it. The length of the bar is the amount of damage. Select the system you want to 
    delegate resources to, and press right or left to add or subtract resources 
    working to repair it. A heavily damaged system will not work properly, as I have 
    made an example of with the 'save' function of the ship's computer. You can 
    leave resources working on a system before it is damaged, which is nice. If 
    you're smart, you'll put men working on your weapons, shields, warp engines, and 
    Hull all the time, so you can be repairing in battle. Remember to come back here 
    after you zip to someplace to repair your warp engines.
    
          7. Transporter
    
          Here's where you form and send down your away teams. When this place 
    becomes an issue, I'll deal with it specifically in the FAQ.
    
          8. Ready Room
    
          Here Picard tells you a little bit of advice to help you get back on the 
    right track if, say, you got lost on your way to an important location, or you 
    just spent 15 hours reading what the ship's computer has to offer while waiting 
    for me to update this FAQ.
    
          ---PART 2: THE WALKTHROUGH---
    
          (any paragraph that starts with '*' is non-essential information that can 
    be skipped.)
    
          1. Vulcan in Distress
    
          The game's intro is as follows:
    
          *     Captain's Log
    
                It has been two days since Starfleet stopped our shore leave on 
    Hobson Delta II. The Crew is covering their disappointment well as we return, 
    once again, to the edge of the Neutral Zone which the Romulans have been 
    threatening to cross.
                Romulan High Command claimed that a research team disappeared over a 
    month ago. As a gesture of goodwill, Starfleet offered to assist their search, 
    but the Romulans declined, citing security reasons. Three days ago, they asked 
    permission to search for their team in Federation space. Needless to say, 
    Starfleet refused.
                Given the sensitive nature of the region, the Enterprise has been 
    sent to monitor their search. We are currently in orbit around the star Oriens 
    Delta, using its unusually high magnetic field to hide the Enterprise from 
    Romulan scanners.
                While the crew is unaware of our orders, most are quite capable of 
    reading a star chart. They know where we are.
    
          You start out being hailed. Answer it.
    
          *     Distress signal
                Broadcast all frequencies:
    
                I am Dr. T'Laris, archeologist of the United Federation of Planets. 
    I am working at ruins on Codis Nu VI. I have just detected a Romulan ship in 
    orbit around the planet. Repeat. Romulans detected at Codis Nu VI. I am in need 
    of assistance.
    
          Set course for Codis Nu VI, warp 9.20. If you encounter any Romulan 
    vessels on your way, ignore then and immediately reset your course to Codis Nu 
    VI.
    
          After arriving, repair your warp engines. Then make an away team (it 
    really doesn't matter who you use, but you might want Worf to be the main man) 
    and beam down. There are 5 Romulans to kill here. Hold B, then press right or 
    left to switch what item to use. You'll want the Phaser. Good luck.
    
          When the Romulans have been defeated, flip the switch to get to Dr. 
    T'Laris. What you say to her does not matter (remember, you can pick what you 
    say by pressing 'left' or 'right'. After talking with her, you are beamed back 
    to the bridge. Task done.
    
          2. Plague Rages/Derelict Vessel
    
          After returning from the surface of Codis Nu VI, there is no obvious task 
    for you. So, for no reason, go to Starbase 220 at Pintor Alpha VIII. There you 
    will be hailed. Answer it, and you'll have your ship instantly repaired, your 
    torpedoes restocked to 275 (even though you should have that amount already 
    anyway) and, most importantly, your wounded away team members will be healed. 
    Immediately you will be hailed again. It's Admiral Baldwin again, the guy who 
    just healed you up.
    
          It doesn't really matter what you say, but you'll get the most information 
    from him if you answer as follows:
          'We are the closest'
          'These space merchants never stop'
          'A quick question'
          'Since our last report'
          'Certainly, has the Romulan High Command been contacted?'
    
          Now set course for Oriens Alpha IV, maximum speed. As usual, ignore and 
    warp past any Romulan ships you may encounter.
    
          You will encounter an unknown ship on the way, that does not hail you or 
    respond to hail.
    
          *     Your ship's sensors read the vessel as:
                Unknown damaged spacecraft
                Name, Class, Association, Registry, Lifeforms, Technology, shields, 
    Hull: all unknown.
                Damage ( % efficiency ): Shields 6%  Hull 42 %
                Unknown lifeforms are detected inside the ship. They are not moving. 
    Ship is trapped in a decaying orbit and functioning on emergency power only.
    
          *     In the Ready Room, Picard has the following to say:
    
                Captain's Log
    
                En route to Oriens Alpha IV to deliver medical supplies, the 
    Enterprise has encountered an alien vessel trapped in a decaying orbit around 
    the planet. Life signs on the vessel are low and fading.
                Although the inhabitants of Oriens Alpha IV urgently need our help, 
    the immediate peril of this craft compels me to make a difficult decision: 
    should I send an away team and see if we can rescue the vessel and its crew 
    before its orbit decays completely; or should I risk delivering the medical 
    supplies first, in the hope that the alien vessel can sustain its orbit long 
    enough for us to return to its aid?
    
          The alien vessel will be there and in the same situation, but you'll get 
    yelled at if you delay the medical supplies. Go to Oriens Alpha IV and drop off 
    the supplies, then come back to the vessel (which is in orbit around Oriens 
    Alpha IV).
    
    	Include Data in your away team. As soon as you arrive on the ship, make 
    him your party leader. He has the ability to (kinda) see in the dark. The 
    Tricorder reads this room as 'Engineering'.
    
          Go north and open the two cabinets. One of them contains a Power Transfer 
    Conduit. Take it and head west, until you find two more cabinets. There's 
    another Conduit in here. Take it too. Now go to the center of the room where you 
    see... two slots with missing conduits. Select each Conduit in your inventory 
    and press A while facing each slot. Lights will turn on, and most doors will be 
    openable. There are two Optical Circuit tiles just a little bit to the left of 
    you. Take the one on the right, then the one on the left.
    
          Now head through the south door. The Tricorder reads this room as 'Shuttle 
    Bay'. There will be a robot creator and possibly a few attack robots directly to 
    the west of you. First shoot the creation panel, then kill the robots. A little 
    to the west of that are two more Optical Circuits. Again, take the one on the 
    right first. That's all you have to do here. Now head back to Engineering.
    
          Now take the east exit from Engineering. The Tricorder reads this room as 
    'Cargo Hold'. There is a little maze here, but its no problem. Go north whenever 
    possible, be sure to explore everywhere, and you will be fine. The first place 
    of intrest you should have come to has two cabinets, but they are empty. Ignore 
    them and head east. In the next 'room', you will find (and take) a 
    Pressurization Pump. This place has two more Optical Circuits. Take the one on 
    the right first, then the one on the left. Now continue east, where you'll find 
    and take a tank of Liquid Storium. Now go back to Engineering.
    
          Now take the west exit from Engineering. The Tricorder reads this room as 
    'Medical Laboratory'. There are two empty cabinets immediately north of you. 
    Ignore them and head south, then west. Be ready to kill robots, then quickly 
    head north and destroy the robot-creator. Just to the east of the robot-creator 
    are two more Optical Circuits. Take the one on the right, then the one on the 
    left. Take the two tanks (Dinitrous Coolant and Ionic Vifium), then head east 
    back to Engineering, ignoring cabinets on the way.
    
          Now, resist the urge to place any storage tanks in their hookups and 
    instead take the north exit from Engineering. The Tricorder reads this room as 
    'Computer Room'. The first thing you will notice is the panel in which to put 
    Optical Circuits. Don't do anything with it yet. Head west until you see and 
    destroy a robot-creator. Then turn around, and start going east, keeping your 
    right side to the wall at all times. You will enter what your Tricorder calls 
    'Crew Quarters'. The first 'room' you will enter has nothing; keep following the 
    right wall. The second room has two more Optical Circuits (take the right one, 
    then the left one). The next 'room' has a robot creator, a Pressurization Pump 
    (that can't be taken), and an exit to a north room. The north door leads to 
    'Hibernation Area', but there's noting to do there, ignore it and keep following 
    the right wall. You will come to one more set of Optical Circuits before you get 
    back to the Computer Room. Take the one on the right first. Once you get back to 
    the Computer Room, keep following the right wall. You will come to a north door 
    that leads to the bridge, but there's nothing for you to do there except get 
    shot at by robots, so ignore it and keep following the right wall of the 
    Computer Room. This will lead west into another 'Crew Quarters' area.
    
    	The first 'room' has two cabinets that are empty, keep going. When you see 
    a pipe hookup, set your Pressurization Pump under it. You will now be able to go 
    through the north door. This door leads to a 'Hibernation Area' that has two 
    more Optical Circuits. Again, take the one on the right first. Then go back to 
    the Crew Quarters and keep following the right wall. You'll come to two more 
    Optical Circuits. Again, take the one on the right first. The wall will now bend 
    to the south and you come to one last robot-creator before your job here is 
    done. Now, go back to the main Optical Circuit panel. If you have collected the 
    circuits in the order in this FAQ, put your #14 circuit in the leftmost slot, 
    then your #5 circuit in the next slot, then your #10 circuit in the next slot, 
    then your #3 circuit in the next, then your #12 circuit in the next, then 
    finally your #5 circuit in the last slot. The ship's main computer should now be 
    on.
    
          Head south back to Engineering. Of the two canister slots, put Liquid 
    Storium in the north one, and Ionic Vifium in the south one. Now flip the switch 
    just to the left, and you will automatically be beamed back to the Enterprise. 
    Task done.
    
          The alien vessel will now be hailing you. Respond. Depending on what you 
    say, you will get various information from the aliens. Most importantly, you are 
    given a 'Tavad' from the Eunacians. Its purpose is to let you get involved in a 
    'test' to see which race gets the IFD- a powerful weapon that must not fall into 
    the wrong hands.
    
          3. Cacoon Cave
    
          Now just wait. You will be hailed by Admiral Baldwin about a mining 
    problem on Oriens Gamma IIIB.
    
          *     In the Ready Room, Picard has the following to say:
    
                Captain's Log.
    
                Following orders received from Starfleet in a subspace communique, 
    the Enterprise has arrived at the moon Oriens Gamma IIIB to investigate a 
    distress signal sent from a small mining colony. Originally thought uninhabited, 
    it appears that the recent disappearance of a number of miners may be connected 
    to sightings of unusual life-forms deep within the mines.
    
                It has been some time since the distress signal was received and I 
    am concerned that we are unable to contact anyone. I am therefore preparing an 
    awayteam to mount a search and rescue mission without further delay.
    
          Go to the Transporter and make an away team. It really doesn't matter who 
    you take, but I recommend Picard, Data, Worf, and Beverly Crusher. For reasons I 
    won't get into now, don't take Geordi LaForge. Got it? Good.
    
          Here is an *approximate* map of the first floor. It is not exact, but it's 
    sufficient. And hey, it's the only map out there.

    2 Miners
    12 Ore
    
          'W' was the closest I could get to a wall. If you have this FAQ printed 
    out, feel free to use a pen to darken the 'W's into actual walls.
    
    W= Wall  nothing= nothing   x= breakable wall (shoot it)
    O= Hidden pit   G= Trapped miner   R= Ore
    S= Start. Where you beam down.   E(number)= An elevator to that floor
    
          It is important to note that at places where ore is ('R'), the ore does 
    not block the path. The ore is embedded in the wall just to the north of the 
    'R'. The locations of the ore are on the map so you can find it all when you 
    come back here later in the game. Do *NOT* take any of it now. While it won't 
    really hurt you, it will really confuse you later on. Just in case you were 
    wondering, if Geordi LaForge is leading the party, the ore will glow bright 
    blue.
    
          This place is infested by burrowing alien creatures who like to shoot 
    projectiles at you. Shoot them on sight, and they'll temporarily leave you 
    alone.
    
          This FAQ does not cover what you should do if you're stupid enough to walk 
    over an area where I have a pit located on the map. If you fall through one, you 
    can try to locate yourself on one of my maps, or you can just beam out by 
    pressing A, B, and C at the same time.
    
          Oh, and... to free a miner caught in a cacoon, shoot the cacoon. Then 
    ignore the guy and follow the map to find the next miner.

          There is only one miner to rescue on this floor, he is just to the west of 
    the starting elevator. After freeing him, head east to elevator E3.

          You arrive here via the north of the two elevators. Both elevators on this 
    floor are labeled 'E4', as they both lead to Floor 4, altough they lead to 
    different parts of it. To progress further in the mine, you will take the 
    southern elevator.
    
          The chasm can be crossed at 'Q' on the map. There, you will find controlls 
    that will activate or de-activate the drawbridge. There's really no point to 
    turning the bridge off after you cross, so don't bother.

    2 Miners
    5 Ore
    
          There is really not much to tell you about this floor. Just head west and 
    free the miners. Before you free the last one, wait, take a *deep* breath, and 
    shoot the cacoon. The miner will tell you that he is in the market for Beta 
    Neutrino Drills. You are then automatically beamed back to the Enterprise. Task 
    done.
    
          4. Negotiations
    
          After rescuing the miners, there is nothing obvious for you to do. So set 
    course for Starbase 220 at Pintor Alpha VIII. On the way there, you will be 
    hailed by Dr. T'Laris:
    
          *     Enterprise. This is Dr. T'Laris. Because of my poor equipment, I am 
    unable to engage subspace communications. Starfleet has informed me that you 
    have had contact with a species familiar with the IFD. This is of particular 
    interest in my research. At your earliest convenience, return to Codis Nu VI. 
    Out.
    
          You will then be hailed by the Starbase as soon as you arrive. Admiral 
    Baldwin will fully repair your ship, including healing to those involved in the 
    'Cacoon Cave' away team.
    
          Now, set course for Codis Nu VI. As soon as you take off, you will 
    encounter a Ferengi ship, that hails you. Respond. Daimon Terplak tells you to 
    look for Daimon Radny somewhere in the Codis system. Fun.
    
          Continue on your way to see Dr. T'Laris as Codis Nu VI. Send an away team 
    down when you get there. This time, there are no Romulans to fight. Talk to Dr. 
    T'Laris. She tells you that the IFD was once controlled by the Senatorius, a 
    political group. It is of immense size and near infinite power. The away team 
    has the Tavad, received from the Eunacians, beamed down to Dr. T'Laris. The away 
    team is automatically beamed back to the Enterprise. Task done.
    
          *     Picard in the Ready Room has the following to say:
    
                Having spoken with Dr. T'Laris, it has become obvious that there is 
    a lot more truth in the myths surrounding the IFD than I had at first suspected. 
    We left the Tavad, given to us by the Eunacians, with Dr. T'Laris in the hope 
    that she may be able to discover its purpose. We will return later to check on 
    her progress.
    
                Meanwhile, I am having the Enterprise search the Codis star cluster 
    for the elusive Daimon Radny. According to the Ferengi trader Daimon Terplak, he 
    may have more information concerning the rumored Romulan invasion.
    
          No need to search, just head to Starbase 202 at Codis Zeta V. You will be 
    hailed by the Starbase's Admiral Hilloko. No matter what you say, she will 
    direct you to the planet below.
    
          *     Picard in the Ready Room has the following to say:
    
                I am sending an awayteam down to the trading post on Codis Zeta V in 
    search of Daimon Radny. Judging by the sound of this character, there's a good 
    chance he will have already moved on.
    
          So, go to Codis Zeta V (the planet), and send down an away team. Include 
    Deanna Troi in the away team. The first thing you will notice when you arrive is 
    that no one in the away team has a phaser. This is actually a good thing, 
    because nothing tries to kill you here.
    
          With Deanna Troi leading the away team, the people here are more willing 
    to talk. An alien on the east wing will say that Radny is here, asking if you 
    have looked everywhere. Now go back west to the table with three people. The 
    west door here will now open. Beyond is Daimon Radny.
    
          After talking with Radny, the away team agrees to get a buyer for Radny's 
    mining equipment (the miners in the Cacoon Cave) in exchange for the Romulan 
    communication encryption codes. Task done.
    
          5. More Mysteries
    
          After dealing with Daimon Radny, go back to Starbase 202 at Codis Zeta V. 
    You will immediately be hailed. Answer it.
    
          *     Distress signal
                Broadcast all frequencies:
    
                This is the SS Nakatomi located at Tytris Iota IV. We are under 
    attack by a ship of unknown origin. Our shields are gone. Boarding is imminent. 
    Repeat. Being boarded.
    
          You will then be hailed by Admiral Hilloko. Being much nicer than Admiral 
    Baldwin, she politely fully repairs your ship.
    
          *     Picard in the Ready Room has the following to say:
    
                We had better make good speed to the ship in orbit around Tytris 
    Iota IV. It look like the Romulans have made their move.
    
          Head to the SS Nakatomi at Tytris Iota IV. As soon as you arrive, you are 
    hailed.
    
          *     The ship's sensors read the following information from the Nakatomi:
    
                Freighter SS Nakatomi
                Class: Freighter
                Association: Federation
                Registry: NCC-4721
                Lifeforms: 33 Humans
                Technology: Interstellar
                Shields: Deflector screens; forward energy deflector array
                Hull: Buttressed Titanium
                Damage ( % Efficiency ):
                  Weapons:   N/A
                  Shields:   100%
                  Hull:      34%
                Current cargo: Electronic instruments
    
          Responding to the hail, you will meet a stubborn member of the Chodak 
    race, who will not negotiate with you. He ends up escaping with the hijacked 
    Nakatomi.
    
    
          5.5: Boarding the Nakatomi!
    
          When talking with the Chodak on the Nakatomi, you can convince them to 
    allow you to send an away team over. Convince him by saying the following:
    
          'You have hijacked a Federation Freighter'
          'It is you who lacks strength'
          'Most certainly not'
          'One moment'
          'Perhaps another accord can be reached'
          'Very well. There is one more option'
          'We only ask that you return our people'
          'Understand that it will take some time to evacuate'
          'Now it is you that makes the joke'
          'Really, commander, you aren't afraid of us, are you?'
    
          You can then beam an away team over to the Nakatomi. Be ready to fight, 
    and have fun! This little subquest can be very hard, and you may wish to just 
    let the freighter get away. Saving the hostages is not at all neccessary to 
    complete the game.
    
          (Back to 5: More Mysteries)
    
          *     Picard in the Ready Room has the following to say:
    
                Captain's Log
    
                Having responded to a distress call from the captain of the 
    Federation freighter Nakatomi, the Enterprise has encountered an unknown alien 
    race. Unfortunately, they seem to be extremely hostile. They have taken the 
    freighter by force and are keeping its crew hostage.
    
                In a communication with a being that seemed to be their leader, I 
    attempted to get this alien to lower the freighter's shields. Tragically, I was 
    unsuccessful. The vessel escaped with all the hostages aboard. The path of the 
    freighter was tracked but mysteriously vanished somewhere in the Verenitor 
    cluster. I can only hope that the crew is still alive.
    
          As soon as the Nakatomi leaves, save the game, and go to Engineering to 
    configure your ship's Resources for battle. Just putting everything on shields 
    in general should be fine, but you might want to spare some for weapons, hull, 
    or life support. Now wait.
    
          After waiting long enough (which may involve fighting with Chodak ships), 
    you will be hailed. If you have taken damage from fighting, be sure to repair 
    your Communications before you answer the hail. Answer it:
    
          *     DTX 151284. Romulan Star Empire. Coded. From Romulan Command. 
    Warbird Haatona engaged in battle with alien vessel at Lothos 7. Alien vessel 
    appears similar to previously encountered vessels. Maintain positions. Alien is 
    secondary priority. Repeat. Secondary priority. Reinforcements en route. End 
    transmission.
    
          You are then immediately hailed again:
    
          *     Enterprise. This is Dr. T'Laris. Come to Codis Nu VI. I have 
    discovered the function of the Tavad. Out.
    
          Well, you heard her. Go to Codis Nu VI. As soon as you go to CONN, Worf 
    tells you the following:
    
          *     Long range scanners have detected a disturbance in the Verenitor 
    cluster.
    
          Ignore it for now, just go to Codis Nu VI. If you are attacked on the way, 
    ignore them and jump back to warp to Codis Nu VI.
    
          *     Upon arrival, Picard in the Ready Room has the following to say:
    
                Captain's Log
    
                Yet again, the Enterprise is in orbit around Codis Nu VI. Dr. 
    T'Laris informed me that she has discovered the function of the device given to 
    us by the Eunacians.
    
                I can only hope that I have made the right decision coming here 
    instead of investigating the unusual signals emanating from the Verenitor 
    cluster.
    
          Send yet another away team down. Talk to Dr. T'Laris. She tells you that 
    Tavad stands for Temporary Artificial Variable Anomaly Device, and it navigates 
    a subspace anomaly. This Tavad is programmed to seek the IFD. It *would* work 
    just fine, but it needs the ores that can be found in the mines at Oriens Gamma 
    IIIB. The Tavad and the away team are automatically beamed back to the 
    Enterprise. Task done.
    
          6. Mineral Madness
    
          After getting the Tavad back from Dr. T'Laris, Picard in the Ready Room 
    has the following to say:
    
          *     Take us back to the mine on Oriens Gamma IIIB as fast as possible. 
    We must get the minerals needed to power the Tavad without further delay.
    
          You heard him. Go to Oriens Gamma IIIB, ignoring and warping past any 
    ships you may encounter on the way. Upon arrival, you are hailed. A miner tells 
    you to come down and collect all the minerals you need. This would be almost 
    totally impossible, but the maps in the 'Cacoon Cave' section of the walkthrough 
    give the location of every piece of ore. Prepare an away team, and this time, 
    have Geordi LaForge lead it.
    
          With Geordi in the lead, the ore glows bright blue. This time to the 
    mines, you still have to be careful of those worm-like aliens. It may be a good 
    idea to save beforehand. Good luck, and don't forget the maps!
    
          After taking the last bit of ore, you will *not* be automatically beamed 
    back to the Enterprise. Count how many you have. If you have gotten them all, 
    you should have 49 pieces. If so, press A, B, and C at the same time to beam 
    out. Task done.
    
          7. Into the Unknown
    
          After getting 49 pieces of ore and beaming back, Picard in the Ready Room 
    has the following to say:
    
          *     We now have sufficient supplies of Pellentium and Ravarium to 
    activate the Tavad.
    
                I cannot help having certain reservations about using this device. 
    It is, after all, completely untested. I feel, however, that if there is even a 
    hint of truth about the awesome power of the IFD, the journey through the 
    subspace anomaly is of the utmost importance. Lay in a course for the Verenitor 
    cluster.
    
          Actually, head to Starbase 202 at Codis Zeta V for healing of any wounded 
    away team members and a restocking of Photon torpedoes.
    
          *Now* go to the subspace anomaly in the Verenitor cluster, ignoring and 
    warping past any ships you may encounter on the way. As soon as you arrive at 
    the anomaly, the Tavad does its work and Picard is beamed down alone to a 
    strange planet. You will notice that you do not have your phaser, and that a 
    Romulan and a Chodak have been beamed down as well.
    
          As interesting as this place may seem, the only thing for you to do here 
    is walk north, then stand on the leftmost emblem (the Romulan and the Chodak are 
    on the other two).
    
          A set of three heads appears and speaks:
    
          *     So, you have arrived. Ten thousand years have passed since the last 
    test. Perhaps one of you has the strength, wisdom, and compassion to lead the 
    galaxy into a new age of peace.
    
                For peace is the purpose of the IFD. Its creators, the Senatorious, 
    fell to the temptation of using the IFD for evil. They recovered and, armed with 
    the knowledge of evil, sent the device into the future.
    
                The future is now. You will be tested for the three qualities of 
    leadership: strength, wisdom, and compassion. Scattered on worlds in this system 
    are three kinds of shard, each kind representing one of the qualities of 
    leadership. Find them, and return here for the final test. The test of the IFD.
    
                Let us begin. The test of strength is first. Find the lonely, frozen 
    moon to start your quest.
    
          Picard is then automatically returned to the Enterprise. Task done.
    
          8. Test of Strength
    
          After being returned to the Enterprise, Picard in the Ready Room has the 
    following to say:
    
          *     Instigate a search for a lonely moon in the Verenitor cluster. We 
    are going to take part in the tests set forth by the Senatorious.
    
          Now would be a wonderful time to go to Engineering and make sure 
    everything is repaired and set for a big battle. If you feel you need more 
    torpedoes (275 is max), head over to Starbase 202 at Codis Zeta V. Then set up 
    your resources appropriately, *save*, and go to Verenitor Beta IIIA.
    
          When you arrive, you are attacked by drone-ships. Fight them. Good luck.
    
          Battle strategy: Set forward and aft shields to max, with a little bit 
    working on the other areas. Do not put any resources to photons, as they are 
    useless in this battle. Put a lot of men on your phasers. Don't ignore impulse 
    engines or aux power. Ignore everything else.
    
          The drones love to fight at a distance, where they spray you with endless 
    photon torpedoes. To kill them, get very close to them and match their 
    movements, while holding down 'A' (fire phasers). The drones can only use 
    torpedoes, and can thus be easily defeated at close range.
    
          After the battle, go to Engineering and repair your ship.
    
          *     Picard in the Ready Room has the following to say:
    
                Captain's Log
    
                Upon arrival at Verenitor Beta IIIA, an isolated moon in the 
    Verenitor cluster, the Enterprise was immediately engaged by a host of robot 
    attack ships.
    
                This is where the race for control of the IFD is to begin. It 
    appears that we are to be tested by a race that died out ten thousand years ago, 
    the first test being one of strength, which, I must confess, I find rather 
    insulting.
    
                My main incentive for participating in these tests is the fact that 
    whoever completes them successfully will gain control of the IFD, a device of 
    unimaginable power. I know the Romulans and the Chodak are both planning to take 
    the tests. Romulans, we know, can be hostile towards the Federation and the 
    Chodak have shown nothing but enmity every time we have encountered them.
    
                I cannot risk either of these two races gaining control of a device 
    that could well give them the power to enslave countless worlds.
    
          If you thought the Cacoon Cave was fun, you're gonna love the Frozen 
    Ruins. The map is too big to put here all in one piece, so I've broken it up 
    into four parts. To use it, this FAQ will have to be printed up and you'll have 
    to do some tape and scissors work.

    W= wall  Y=Water  X=Frozen Robot  Z=Robot enemy  V=Big Alien
    Other letters: switches and corresponding gates.
    Numbers: points of intrest, to help clarify the walkthrough.
    
          Reading this map: As from before, 'W' signifies a solid wall. Feel free to 
    use a pen to darken in all the 'W's, but be very sure to not accidentally cover 
    over any other letter. 'Y' signifies water. You'll understand when you get 
    there. 'Z' is the approximate location of a flying robot enemy. 'V' is the 
    approximate location of a big fat alien enemy. 'x' is a place where there is a 
    patch of ice on the north wall. Don't shoot it, or you'll release one of those 
    flying robots.
    
          For other letters, a capital letter is a barrier of some sort, and a 
    lowercase letter is a means of opening the barrier (example: flipping switch 'c' 
    opens gate 'C'). The numbers are points of interest that I will refer to to help 
    you navigate these ruins.
    
          Now, let's get started. First, save the game. Now, prepare an away team. 
    Everyone should be fully healed now, because I had you go to a Starbase before 
    coming here. The away team should be: Worf, Data, and Picard. No one else. Beam 
    down, and let's begin.
    
          You beam down at '1'. Have Worf break off alone and head west, destroying 
    the first attack robot. Then have him head north and destroy the second robot. 
    Now send him south and west to gate 'A', and destroy the third robot. After the 
    robot is destroyed, flip switch 'a' to open gate 'A', then have him go to switch 
    'g' at '3'. After flipping switch 'g', have Worf head east and north through 
    gate 'G'. Then have him wind his way to '4'. There you will find another frozen 
    north wall. Shoot this one, and you'll get a 'Valve Control'. Head down to '5' 
    and you'll find another ice wall. Shoot it to get another 'Valve Control'. Is 
    Worf still alive? Don't worry, you don't have to fight with him anymore. Now 
    switch over to Data.
    
          Now have Data (alone) go west, then north through gate 'A'. Have him flip 
    switch 'c' and go through gate 'C'. Then have him flip switch 'd' and go through 
    gate 'D'. Then have him go to '6', where you'll run into an alien. Stand so your 
    phaser beam barely makes it through the door and shoot it from the north. After 
    awhile, it will die. Then have Data go and flip switch 'b'. You're done here. 
    Now it's Picard's turn. Switch to Picard.
    
          Have Picard head west, and go north at '2'. Have him kill the robot at 
    '7', then lure the alien to '8', where you can shoot down at it the way you did 
    with Data. After the alien is dead, have Picard go north through gate 'B', then 
    flip switch 'e', and go through gate 'E'. There, flip switch 'f', and go through 
    gate 'F'. Now head to '9', where you'll have to shoot another alien. After it's 
    dead, go to the weird equipment at '10'. Now have Worf and Data come here too.
    
          Have Worf put a 'Valve Control' in each of the two slots here, then use 
    the lever thing on the right. A bridge will appear at 'N'. Have everyone cross 
    it. From this point on, there is no more fighting. Now have Worf go directly 
    north, then flip switch 'k'. Before moving, while 'k' is being held, switch to 
    Data. Have Data head east and work his way to switch 'j'. While Data is holding 
    'j', have Picard go north through gate 'J' to switch 'l'. With Picard holding 
    switch 'l', have Data head west, across bridge 'L', to switch 'm'. With Data 
    holding switch 'm', Picard can retrieve the Shard of Strength at 'M'. You are 
    then automatically beamed back to the Enterprise. Task done.
    
          9. Test of Compassion
    
          With the Shard of Strength, go back to the Subspace Anomaly in the 
    Verenitor cluster. The 'Arbitrator' will then tell you the following:
    
          *     Excellent. You have passed the test of strength. Do not forget that 
    the easiest tasks come first. Unbridled strength is a means not to prosperity, 
    but destruction. You must prove that your prowess id tempered by your heart and 
    mind.
    
                To complete the test of compassion, you must find the verdant moon 
    wreathed in the color of blood. Follow your heart.
    
          Picard is then returned to the Enterprise. Now go to Starbase 202 at Codis 
    Zeta V to heal up your away team members. Then go to Verenitor Gamma VIE.
    
          *     Picard in the Ready Room has the following to say:
    
                Captain's Log
    
                The Enterprise is in orbit around Verenitor Gamma VIE, an unusual 
    moon in the Verenitor cluster. Unusual, because of the high quantity of organic 
    compounds in a ring circling this incredibly lush world.
    
                This is where the test of compassion is to take place. I can only 
    hope that we are ahead of our two deadly adversaries.
    
          Now would be a good time to save the game. Prepare an away team consisting 
    of only Worf and Data.
    
          You will find yourself under attack by strange plant creatures. Right now, 
    only 5 of them can get to you. Have Data break off my himself and kill them.
    
          Now have Data, *alone*, cross the river to the west. Do this by walking on 
    the lily pads when they appear. After crossing the river, walk north until you 
    see a guy standing by a hut. Talk to the guy; he'll give you a Crystal Amulet. 
    Now go into his hut and take a Crystal Orb. Head east over the river, back to 
    Worf. Walk over Worf while you have 'Command' on, to let him follow Data. Head 
    northeast until you see a face in the stone. Put the Crystal Amulet in the left 
    eye, and the Crystal Orb in the right eye. The head will roll out of the way.
    
          Head north past some more plant creatures, then leave to the west. Now 
    walk *into* the jungle, going south when possible. When you get stuck, go north 
    a little bit, then west again, to the edge of the screen. Now head north and 
    east, and you'll exit the jungle by a cave. Go in.
    
          There are two switches here. Once both of them have been pressed, at the 
    same time, a bridge will form. The only problem is that holding a switch down 
    will cause damage to the switch holder. Have Worf use the one on the left, and 
    Data the one on the right. Now have Data walk north across the bridge as soon as 
    it appears, and talk to the man at the other side. He gives you the Shard of 
    Compassion and you are beamed back to the Enterprise. Task done.
    
          10: Test of Wisdom
    
          Now head back to Starbase 202 at Codis Zeta V to heal up any wounded away 
    team members. Then go back to the Anomaly in the Verenitor cluster.
    
          *     The Senatorius speaks:
    
                The Second shard. Good. You are faring well. But many a strong and 
    kind fool has lead a race to its destruction.
    
                Complete the test of wisdom, if you are able. Find the planet with a 
    satellite moving in the opposite direction.
    
          Picard is then returned to the Enterprise. Now, go to Verenitor Delta V. 
    Prepare an away team, preferably Picard, Data, Worf, and Riker. Beam down.
    
          There are four buttons on the north wall. Have each person be pressing one 
    of the buttons, and the door will open. Go through it. Take the 'Cut Stone', 
    then head north into the next room. The next room has nothing, just go north.
    
          You will find yourself in a room where some of the diamond patterns on the 
    floor are highlighted, so they form a grid. By taking direct paths between 
    certain diamond shapes, you can make it across this puzzle. Start on the second 
    diamond to the left. Head north two diamonds, west one, north two, east three, 
    north one, west two, and north two to get to the next room.
    
          The next room has a cracked wall. Shoot it to pass through. After that, 
    there is a platform puzzle. Have Data stand on the first (only) platform, and 
    Worf stand by the buttons on the north wall. Have Worf push the third button 
    from the left, and have Data walk right one and down two. Have Worf push the 
    fourth button from the left, and have Data walk right one and down one. Have 
    Worf push the second button from the left, and have Data walk right one and up 
    two. have Worf press the fifth button from the left, and have Data walk right 
    one, up one, and right one. Have Worf press the fourth button from the left, 
    then have Data walk right two and down one. Finally, have Worf press the third 
    button from the left, and have Data blast through the east wall into the next 
    room. Once there, have Data press the first button. This will set up the 
    platforms so the rest of the away team can follow.
    
          In this next room, have Data, alone, press the second button. This will 
    let the east door open. With the button down, have the rest of the away team go 
    and open the door. While the door is open, have Data meet up with the rest of 
    the away team. Now have the whole team go through the door.
    
          The next room has some sort of damage floor. I don't see a way to keep the 
    floor from hurting you, so just head to the southeast exit as quickly as 
    possible. The next room has nothing of interest. Just head south, and south 
    through the room after that. This puts you into another damage floors room; just 
    keep heading south.
    
          You then arrive at another platform puzzle. Again, Worf will run the 
    buttons and Data will walk across. Have Worf push the second button from the 
    left, and Data walk down two and right one. Have Worf press the rightmost 
    button, and Data walk down one and left one. Have Worf press the third button 
    from the left, and Data walk down one and right one. Have Worf press the fifth 
    button from the left, and Data walk right two. Have Worf press the leftmost 
    button, and Data walk down one and left one. Have Worf press the second button 
    from the left, and Data walk left one. Finally, have Worf press the fourth 
    button from the left, and Data walk south into the next room. There, again, have 
    him push a button to let the rest of the away team across.
    
          Next on the list of puzzles here is a transporter maze. The first room 
    only has one transporter. Have the lead away team member stand on it, and the 
    away team will be teleported to another room. This room has four transporters, 
    take the lower-left one. The next room has four more transporters. Again, take 
    the lower-right one. Yet again, you'll find yourself in a four transporter room. 
    This time, take the upper-right one. You'll find yourself in a room with a Cut 
    Stone. Take it, then take the upper-right transporter, and go through the north 
    door you see.
    
          This pillars puzzle can be incredibly annoying. To get past it, walk up to 
    the pillars, walk to the left wall, and see if you can pass through by the left 
    wall. If not, head over to the right wall, then left for three sets of pillars, 
    then south and up the left wall. Repeat as many times as necessary. Head through 
    the north door.
    
          Here, you will see boulders going back and forth on paths that you must 
    cross. Cross them one person at a time, and be careful not to get hit. At the 
    north wall, take the Cut Stone, and have each person press a button so that 
    they're all down at the same time. The east door will then be open. Go through 
    it. In the next room, there are three slots in the north wall. Put a Cut Stone 
    in each of them, and the south door will be operable. Go through it.
    
          Immediately in the next room, press the button to your left. Then go to 
    the replicator on your right to get a Transporter Component. Close the Repicator 
    door, and press the button to make another. Keep this up until you have three 
    Transporter Components. Now head south to the rest of this room. Put a 
    Transporter Component on each of the transporters to make them operable.
    
          Take the entire away team to the south transporter. You are transported to 
    a room with three floor triggers. Have three people stand on them, and the 
    fourth person head north through the door. At the very north of this area is a 
    switch that must be held down. Have the fourth person do this, while the other 
    three head back to the main transporter room.
    
          This time, take the upper-left of the three transporters. In this area, 
    you're going to have to 'give up' another away team member. Make sure that 
    you're giving up one so that the two remaining people are 'next to' each other 
    on the bar on the right side of the screen. Have one of those two people hold 
    the switch in the upper-right corner of the room, so the others can go through 
    the north door. The next room is very similar. Have the other 'next to first 
    switch holder' person hold the switch in the upper-right corner, so the 
    designated 'to be left behind' person can go through the north door. Past the 
    north door, have the last person hold the switch there, and the other two people 
    leave back to the main transporter room.
    
          Now, have the last two away team members take the upper-right transporter. 
    This is the most annoying place; if you're emulating this, you'll want to use 
    save state to be able to correct your mistakes. The tiles in this room activate 
    a platform pathway around the outside when walked on clockwise. Walk around on 
    them to get a feel for how they work. Have one person step on a tile, then the 
    other person immediately walk over to that tile before the previous one crumbles 
    underneath them. Once the platform-walking person makes it to the switch and 
    holds it down, have the last person go back to the main transporter room and 
    take the Shard of Wisdom from the pillar to the east. Task done.
    
          11. IFD
    
          First, head back to Starbase 202 at Codis Zeta V for healing of away team 
    members. Then go to the Anomaly in the Verenitor cluster.
    
          *     This time, the Senatorious says the following:
    
                You have returned. All three civilizations have passed the tests. 
    Now begins the final challenge for mastery of the IFD. A representative of each 
    civilization has been chosen.
    
                Let the challenge begin.
    
          This 'final challenge' is really quite simple. Put the Shard of Strength 
    on the pedestal by the Chodak and the Shard of Compassion on the pedestal by the 
    Romulan. Then shoot the Senatorius until he steps to the side and lets another 
    pedestal appear. Put the Shard of Wisdom on it. This will start the ending. TASK 
    DONE!

          P D Tari. He is writing the guide for the SNES version, and his work 
    convinced me to get down to business about beating this game.

          Nintendo Power. They did a little 10 page strategy thing for the SNES 
    version of this game. Their mine maps were mostly useless to me, but that's 
    where I learned how to use Deanna Troi to find Daimon Radny.
    
          The Ultima Dragons. You probably don't care at all, but I, Monetary 
    Dragon, am an Ultima Dragon. Visit the Ultima Dragons at udic.org.
    
          Jarak Maldon. He gave me a bit of info about the final test, and a lot 
    about the 'boarding the Nakatomi' subplot. His Email is jarak@stny.rr.com  If 
    you have a question about the game, and are unable to contact me, drop this guy 
    a line. He'll probably be able to help you.
    
          To ANYONE who can help me with this guide in any way. Anything, people, 
    and you'll get your name here. I'm also looking for the instructions to this 
    game. If you can Email them to me in a text file, you get your name here.

          I have written this guide so that the many beleaguered Star Trek RPG fans 
    can finally put this game to rest. That's it. I don't care what you do with this 
    document, I just hope that you spread its information to as many people who have 
    played this game as possible. Just don't use it for profitable reasons without 
    first having my consent.
