Mission Critical (1995)

About This Game

The hull of your crippled vessel has ruptured, air is leaking into space, and weapons systems are down. Your mission could have ended fifteen years of interstellar war, but now – as the only remaining crewman – your first order of business is to stay alive…

This thrilling adventure will take you from the bridge of the battlecruiser USS Lexington to the surface of the stark and deadly planet Persephone. In an alien landscape of endless rock spires under skies of crackling electrical storms you open a crystalline portal to another time and are faced with a terrible choice and the ultimate question:
What does it mean to be human?
