About This File

Story: After the lifeless bodies of D'sparils body guards crumble and fall to the ground, for the first time in ages you feel a sense a sense of relief... as you enter the portal that finally takes you... home?

This is a challenging map for Heretic, and your gonna need to keep moving as well as taking full advantage of artifacts if you want to survive.

I decided to touch up on an old map, add a few areas and release so that it didn't just gather dust on my hard drive. I might release another bigger, and more epic Heretic map in the future to go alongside this one, but we'll see how things go. :)

Pretty much the perfect Heretic map. Nothing about it is incredibly grandiose, it's just good simple fun. The gameplay is a bit tough, but totally fair. There's enough ammo & breathing room that it feels satisfying to clear out each room. The architecture & lighting are in the classic E1 style, but a bit better detailed, with some nice directional shadows. The level design is simple (just one key required), but manages to be non-linear in a rewarding fashion. Even the secrets stood out as nice. Really, its only crime is being too short.

Short map with simple layout - there is not much to do. Ambiance is ok but not special. Gameplay @ UV is not difficult, strafing is the way to go; ammo is tight, so creating infighting is necessary. Overall: I very like Heretic levels, but given the skyhigh ratings above, this one is disappointing; +1 because we need more Heretic maps = small 3*. BTW @ 5* voters: there are a lót of Heretic maps in the archive which are much, much better, so sorry, but this one is not legendary at all.

Very good single map wad for Heretic. If only more people would make maps of this calibre for this unappreciated game I would be a happy man. Would be nice to see more maps from this author for Heretic. 4/5 Kristus.

Excellent Heretic wad by a skilled mapper. Ammo balance might have been a tad bit on the tight side, but then again, I probably suck at using inventory. So yeah, good stuff. -Snakes

Nice work, even it's hard(if you go wrong way, then get ass kicked), but I have a lot of fun with it, and a rarely good piece of Heretic map I must say. The layout just a bit confusing me so I take some time to found it out. 4/5 -playerlin

Woah! Why have I not seen this level before?!? I love a good Heretic map that stays true to the first episode (Docks theme) and makes it look pretty without someone having to throw in some 2nd or 3rd episode stuff in. It was a bit short, however it was perfect.

      I tried it years ago and was impressed... its actually made in EDMAP! The ancient map editor from hell itself.   But we really need an updated UDMF version of this   The 'other' startrek wad of old is also very good for its time   we need more startrek in doom

      C'mon, is not that bad! There's so much doomcute here that i'll think that i start to have diabetes from all the sweetness lol. Even if big part of the movies are all "Oh My Goddess!" with wrong titles as well for the, the textures a cute cartoony design, even if pretty flat sometimes. The techno midi is awful. Overall cute map.   A fun trivia: iirc in the movie "7 doors of death" aka "The Beyond", near the end the main characters tries to escape from zombies (or they are possessed ghouls? I don't remember) and every time they using 3 shoots in total for all the time, using a revolver. Also that guys have a black and red mimetic like dress, like a certain monster in a certain game....

      Not sure to talk about this map on the Wadarcheology thread since i'm pretty sure it's pretty well known around there, even with only one wrote review by Doomkid? However, this is a pretty good map sets in the famous Enterprise starship from Star Trek: The Next Generation, new graphics, sounds and cute sprites of crew inmates, the work done is pretty admirable, too bad that there's no exit (at least i didn't find it)! However, a pretty cool partial conversion!

      Not bad, the premise of choosing your own combo of guns is pretty cool and visually the map is nice. T recall that his map was more harder in my youth, but it's not really challenging with only 70 monsters in the map on HMP. Also the map can be finished fast if you find the secret exit.

      We live in a world where you can play Speed of Doom pretty much whenever you want. And for that I am thankful 🙏
