The Starfleet Project
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...  Begin 3.0.1, 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

Note: I request that you do not post Begin or the manual on other web sites. 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!
