I started playing this starship (i.e., Startrek) builder program that I've had forever and only used one time...and now I'm hooked. I've built my own starship (I have several others too) cristened the U.S.S. Shakespeare, NCC 23455. It is Akira class, very cool looking, maybe I can upload a picture somehow.
Anyway, there's not much action to the game. You just have to go through numbers and statistics, then fly missions to get credits to build your fleet.
It's amusing enough. Plus the missions can be run in stealth mode so you don't have to sit there and stare at the screen. It runs in the background and you make money (or lose it depending on your outfitting choices) without knowing it.
