The game was purported to be an adventure built around complex, pre-rendered 3D locations. It was to play as a kind of "choose your own adventure" with the player given options and choices that progress the story depending on how the player decides to proceed. Pre-release screenshots show 3D environments and characters, including alien worlds, alien peoples, the cast of the television show, and the USS Enterprise (NCC-1701-D).
In addition, there was to be a real-time space combat mode. In pre-release screenshots, this mode appeared to be similar in style to space shooter games such as the Wing Commander series.
