Serena Nelson writes: "I still have fond memories of spending free time in my school's computer lab playing Oregon Trail on an Apple IIe, killing off my settlers because I sucked just that badly at getting them through the frontier. Which is why I looked fondly towards playing Orion Trail, a homage to this classic and a parody of Star Trek. And I will have to say that I wasn't disappointed in the least from the point of loading the game up and picking my crew to join me across the stars. My only problem? I found it hard to put down to write this review."
