I picked these up today in a lot with some other Atari stuff. I'm more knowledgeable about Nintendo than I am Atari so I'm hoping someone here can help me with any info, value, etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've never seen a Star Trek demo cart like that before. Really neat.

Those are loaner cooies. I have that Star Trek cart as well. If you are interested in selling shoot me a message, I will give you a fair price.

I've seen that one before.  I have no idea why they made a special label for it, but it's legit.  Maybe because it was Star Trek?

There's at least 2 or 3 others floating around. One was sold on eBay in the last year. You also have a picture of one on your site, although that cartridge has a different case that appears to be the same one used by Fox/Sirius for their 2600 games.

Regarding the "special" label, I have a Tac-Scan prototype with a similar blue and white label. Nothing special about it...I think they just used those labels early on before switching to the other ones later. The Bally/Midway titles always have those pinkish red labels that are very similar to Activision review carts.
