Frontier First Encounters

Frontier First Encounters was released for the PC market in 1995 on both floppy disc and CD. The major difference between the two versions was the inclusion of full motion video in the spaceports and space stations. A Commodore Amiga version never saw the light of day. FFE was originally intended to run in Windows but was changed at the last minute to run in DOS - one of the main reasons there were so many bugs on release.
