This is a 4 pack of screen savers. It is run by choosing Launcher from the screen saver list. Under options you can check one to four of the screen savers, then when the program starts it will randomly choose from the list. Each screen saver has it's own options that can only be accessed while they are running by pressing Shift-C. The preview button is inactive which makes checking this out quickly a bit difficult.

The first one is Bouncing Balls, which is small colored balls bouncing around a black screen like a Pong from hell game. The options are how many balls you want. how many colors you want the balls in, and the max speed.

The second is Rolling Balls, which is several balls rolling from side to side and up and down on your desktop. There are no options with this one.

The third one is Borg Assimilation, which is quite strange. There are little gears and things that sorta look like Seven's face jewels, little bug like things running around and occasionally this circle pops up with more clockwork and a picture, Voyager, a planet, a borg cube etc. This all takes place on the desktop. The options are sound effects on/off background sound on/off and animation delay.

The fourth one is Throwing Bricks, which is bricks heaved at your desktop and shattered by something. [bummer wouldn't let me shot them down] The options are sound on/off and delay between bricks.
