Star Trek for the Archimedes

Post by Kazzie » Wed May 01, 2019 2:27 pm

I'm looking for a port of the (1971-based) Star Trek for the Archimedes. It's the game that involved searching for Klingons on a rectangular grid, and firing torpedoes at them. I recall playing it on my A420/1, but it isn't on any of the floppy disks that stayed in my possession.

Going by memory, I suspect it ran full screen, but I think that it was a RISC OS application (as opposed to a BBC program run through !65Host) because I distinctly recall the orange of the 16-colour palette being used for the grid.

Thank you.

!StarTrek is the more familiar name of the two. I'll give them a try this evening once the kids are in bed. Thanks.
