I have a mid-2010 (Intel) MacBook Pro, and I’m nostalgic for Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force, which was released in the early 2000s (!). At some point there was a freely-downloadable Carbon version to allow people who already owned the game to play it under then-current versions of Mac OS X, but as far as I know there hasn’t been any development recently. Can anyone think of some way I might be able to get the game running again?

Did your computer ship with Lion or Snow Leopard? What version of the OS is it currently running? – Daniel Nov 26 '11 at 23:29
It shipped with 10.6.3 and is running 10.7.2 now. (I said this was a mid-2011 model, but it was mid-2010—fixed now.) – bdesham Nov 27 '11 at 1:40

Running Snow Leopard in a virtual machine will run PPC and some carbon apps on a Lion Mac.

You can also install Snow Leopard onto another drive (external or partition) and boot to 10.6 I that's all you need for that app.
