Classic Text Game:

Each game starts with a different number of Klingons, friendly Starbases and stars, spread throughout the galaxy that is arranged as an 8 by 8 grid of "quadrants" and each quadrant is further divided into an 8 by 8 grid of "sectors".

The Enterprise's surroundings are displayed in the default short-range sensors and issuing the library computer long-range sensor scan command. The Enterprise can move around the galaxy using Impulse Drive or Warp Engines using polar coordinates directions.

The Enterprise is protected by shields and can attack Klingon warships using either Phasers or Photon torpedos. Movement, combat and shields all drain the energy supply of the Enterprise, which can be resupplied again by docking to a Starbase. Issuing tactical commands takes up some game time, closing on the limit imposed at the start of the game.

The game ends when the Enterprise is destroyed, all Klingons are destroyed, or the time limit runs out. A score in the form of a ranking is presented at the end of the game, based on energy usage, damage taken and inflicted, and any remaining time.

    So, I'm starting this thinking it would be boring, but it kept me on edge. I'm constantly trying to find Klingons, but at the same time, I'm trying to find Starbases. So much better than I thought. Great job, great job.

    If u want to duplicate Original text game, u need to add/fix 3 things. 1) in original, if docked at starbase when Klingons attacked, ship not destroyed because as game would tell u "starbase shields protect the Enterprise." 2) original had library compute

    Nice implementation of a classic. Brings back memories of playing VAXTREK for hours on end back in the day.

    I love this game but I encountered a problem. I was low in power, my impulse engines down, not enough power to warp to get them back online and there klingons destroyed in that sector. There was also a starbase there but could move to it. It you could add
