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.

    Add R for Romulans' who cloak and move, O for Orion who ram or run and M for Space Monster which can be described by text and sound.

    Old style text game, from 15 years before my time, that's still fun today. Great strategy game for those who enjoy those. Text on the Nexus 5 in the how to play area is tiny and almost impossible to read

    It takes a while to understand how the game works, but once learnt, the game is a lot of fun with great sound effects! *BUG REPORT* Shield use has no effect on total energy available.
