Mission Critical is an engrossing game that may be the best original hard sci-fi game ever created. As lone survivor of the ship's crew sent to find alien technology to avert the course of war, you must survive the ship's malfunctions and complete the mission. Puzzles are easier than normal, perhaps due to vastly simplified interface, but the excellent and complex plot more than makes up for it. There is also a surprisingly well-designed strategy game-within-a-game and great performance by Michael Dorn (Worf in Star Trek: TNG).
