System 47 is a "LCARS" style screen saver with various flashed-based animations.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM GODZFIRE:Loving this screensaver as much as I do, I was very sad when I found out that it would not install or function on 10.5 or 10.6. MeWho hasn't posted an update since mid 2006, and all attempts to contact him have failed. With what little knowledge I had, I was able to update the 'ScreenTime for Flash' installer so it now properly installs on the newer operating systems and functions when opened in the Screen Saver Preference Pane.

I take NO credit for ANY of System47 myself. Any, all, and every credit more...

I downloaded the latest, 2.3. However, the install screen is all white and preview crashes system preferences.

What am I doing wrong?

Forget it!
I was using Chrome to configure, works like a charm in Safari ;)

I, too loved System47.

I thank godzfire for their work in updating System47 to an Intel screensaver.

My only qualm - and it is slight - is I'm running OSX Mavericks, and, while System47 DOES work, it is slightly wonky.

I'm about to contact godzfire to see if anything's been done to update it.

But, if you - like us - like Star Trek, System47 IS THE screensaver.

Mavericks! Damn you!

What are the chances we can get an updated version that works with OSX 10.9?

Love this screen saver and have been using it for many, many years. I need it back! :)

I've used this screensaver in the past and love it, but it doesn't seem to work on 10.8.

Figured out how to configure... Use finder to navigate to your personal Library (shift-cmd-G) then open the configure.swf with Firefox:
file:///Users/your-account/Library/Screen%20Savers/System47.saver/Contents/Resources/configure.swf

I was able to turn down the sound to a whisper... just enough to let my geek flag fly without pissing off my cubicle neighbors!

Love this SS, have used it for years dating back to OS9 and I have it on a PC. So glade it works on my new iMac, well mostly.

What are the chances of an update to resolve the crash issue when you try and change the settings?

I had no idea until tonight that this screensaver had ever been updated for OS X. I found and ran the installer for v2.1 and of course it failed. So I was very happy to find this updated version, which is working well. Thanks for creating the new version that runs in Snow Leopard!!

I love this screensaver! The graphics are great and it's entertaining to just sit and watch when it's on. If you're a Star Trek fan...it's a must-have!
