I have an urge to replay both of them. I now own both on CD so they should be easier to get to run and have all the extra voices and such. But I wonder how tough they are to get working. Has anyone tried these recently? I have the collector's edition of the 2nd one but Im not sure if it came out after Win95 or not. I'll have to dig them out to look. Wonder if they are even worth the trouble? I remember loving them. but that was 15+ years ago. They are still my favorite Star Trek games ever.

quick google fu has abandonia saying this to run it:

Apart from using DOS, DosBox and VDMSound, Judgment Rites can be ran in plain Windows XP with full sound and music, altough that requires a bit of fiddling. Right-click on the game executable and select [PROPERTIES]. Then go to [MEMORY] tab. Change all drop-boxes to "automatic" and put a tick in the "protected" checkbox. In order to get the sound running, run the game's setup and select "Roland SCC-1/General Midi" for music and "Sound Blaster Pro" for sound effects. While reason would dictate using the latter for both, it only results in the game playing with sound effects but no music.

So in vista/w7 maybe try setting to windows xp if it fails to run at first.

Also saw sierrahelp.com list it as w7 compatable but they did list dosbox by it.

Ya forgot to say I have Win7. I may be stuck using DosBox. Seems it may be tough to get running. But it sure is tempting me to play it. Or try.

The setup described doesn't sound too hard at all for Judgment Rites (though I'm loathe to trust anyone who uses the phrase "[they] can be ran").

Let us know how these games hold up, Daehawk.  They are some of my favorites, as well.
