What is the uncensored version of egatrek?
EGA Trek was a really really compelling simulator of a war between the Federation and Klingon Empire, where you were the commander of the Enterprise - it had inventories, targeting torpedoes by coordinates, responding to planetary distress calls, etc, etc.

The original was pure Star Trek - but then it got censored due to copyright, and the Klingons were replaced with 'Mongols' etc. What an astounding game - I might have one of the few copies left in existence of the original, if the floppy disk still works.

How can one play these games now? Do you have to run them in some sort of emulator - or from DOS I suppose? Is there anywhere online you can play them (in a browser ...?)
Some of them might still be playable, I'm not sure. DOSBox is what people use for DOS games in modern operating systems if not. Some might need modding - I know Klingon Academy works, but has some graphical problems, which can be patched for XP, but maybe not Vista/7/8.
