Star Trek 3.5...Atarimania guys...here's some scans

Recommended Posts

Looks like an interesting game, would love to explore the final frontier, battle Klingons, Romulans, are the Gorn included? Not many people know that Star Trek was a big game influence on old computers. Remember that thing they did with a grid, had to scan, locate the Klingons, etc. It was done in Basic and ran on mainframes and early micros that predate the Atari 800 and Apple II. Someone should do a history of Star Trek games.

I ran across a Star Trek game web page that had a fairly complete history of the game a few years ago but I don't know if it's still around.

 

Lance Micklus had one of the best if not the best variation on the theme IMHO.

I first played it on the TRS-80 Model I (first published in Softside Magazine if I remember right) and later versions got better and better.

I think his last port was for the Tandy CoCo which he claimed was the best version.

I had a Coco and to this day I've never played the coco version.
