Rescue! - the old Mac game from the early 90s

Anyone else play this gem back in the day on their old Macs? It was shareware but there really wasn't any limitations if you didn't contribute money. I remember eagerly anticipating the next versions. It used sounds and effects from TNG, but Paramount got on the developer's case and the game had to be modified.

You had to warp around to different planets and rescue colonists before the planets were destroyer by Warbirds, Ferengi, and later, the Borg. You could use tractor beams, phasers, photon torpedos, etc., but had to manage the ships power with all the warping around. Awesome game!

Here's a wiki and there are some background links on that page.
