Star Trek
Welcome Aboard the U.S.S. Jupiter
The object of your mission is to travel as far back into time as possible, and destroy the evil Spectrons who will otherwise wipe out the human race.
Every Stargate passed through will bring you back 1000 years but before you can go through the gate you must first dock at lease five starbases.
Your position is shown as a on the galactic chart. Stars are shown as *'s, starbases as B's and the stargate as a #.
To fly the starship you need to enter the warp and vector. Other controls include scanners and shields. The scanners will give early warnings, and the shield will reduce damage.
From time to time the evil Klingon fighting ships of the Spectrons will attack. To defend yourself, activate the Battle Computer (press B) and either use Photon torpedoes (which never miss) or lasers (which do).
The Klingon will fire Electron Pulses at you which will drain your energy.
Energy is obtained at the few starbases scattered through the Galaxy. By the way, don't pay any notice to the crew. Good luck!
