You all know about the LCARS Terminal from Star Trek, right? Well, I'd like to make a MS-DOS/Windows (will run on either) emulator of the LCARS Terminal. The only problem: I'm not the best programmer. I could do the artwork, research, and some programming, but I would need someone to do the majority of the programming. Whatever programming language you think would be best. It'll be a simple program, mostly a menu-driven interface, but also a file/program manager. Anyone want to help?

Great! Thanks! Now I have 5+ shells to choose from on my MS-DOS machine (whoops). Calmira, CalmiraXP, LCARS24, and about three Windows 3.1 shells, as well as Program Manager. Goes well with my mood.

yeppers. I was just thinking the same thing. "I wonder who would believe MacOS running on a Pentium-S?" Unfortunately, my only compatible video card bit the dust last night. So my computer is now unusable :-( *sob*
