The Starfleet Project has been created to support the Windows version of Begin, A Tactical Starship Simulation
This project is the direct result of Ben Hallert
a long time Begin fan, starting the BeginStarshipCombat
Yahoo group which I happen to stumble upon in February 2005. The group showed me there was still interest in Begin and so I decided
to create a Windows version of the program. - Tom Nelson, March 2009
Now available for downloading...
, A Tactical Starship Simulation, for Windows!
This is a quick and very rough port to Windows of Begin 2.0
, from MS-DOS.
The final source for 2.0 was lost so this version is missing a few of the commands that were available in 2.0, but it is mostly all there.
A few new features have been added too. Sample screen shot
The documentation is now available online at
Starfleet Project Wiki

Instead, just post a link back to this web site. This helps me keep track of how much interest there is in the game. Thanks!
