This is a very playable version even though it pre-dates quite a few of the others. There is the familiar galazy map with its 64 sectors, one of which is always displayed at the top of the screen, showing in graphic form the Enterprise, Kliingon ships, Starbases and stars present. You are told the sector your are in, energy level, shield level, torpedoes left and the status condition. Command options include manoeuvring, shields, phasers, photon torps, scan, galactic map and the computer. The computer, when selected, allows you to navigate, use hyper-drive, use smart bomb, send out a probe, self-destruct and check status. In addition to the fiendish Klingons Romulan vessels with invisibility cloaks may attack you. Good value for money although the graphics could have been more colourful.
