Description of Star Fleet I: The War Begins!

No doubt the most complex space combat simulation games ever released, and one the most complex games in general, Star Fleet 1 packs an amazing amount of gameplay and realism less than 200KB of space.

In a plot and gameplay inspired by Star Trek games that were floating around almost every mini-computer and mainframes in late 1970s, Star Fleet lets you command a spaceship and undertake various missions to defend the earth from the aliens Krellan and Zaldron. Every ship system is modeled in meticulous detail-- a must play for all every armchair commander. The version of the game here is the first official release version by Interstel, after it was incorporated by Trevor Sorensen in 1986. The game itself, however, began selling as early as 1981 by Cygnus, back when it was still a "garage sale" operation.

Definitely as must-play for every armchair commander.

I setup my Last name and password like it said, but when I go to log back in it doesn't recognize my last name, saying File Read error, you must sign on as MANAGER to work on or reset the data files.

I knew I still had my original box of this game when I played it on my commodore 64, so looked through some boxes in my attic and found it and everything was still in it. OFFICER'S MANUAL, OFFICER'S MANUAL SUPPLEMENT, Quick Reference Card and the piece of paper I wrote my name and password on. I still have commodore 64 and my cousins 128. My GF and I at the time played it all the time.

Where can I get a copy of the manual? This "Word Lookup" protection is irritating.

I LOVE you people. My entire floor was addicted to this game in college. It took me forever to remember the name of the game and now that I've found it again...Christmas!
Excellent Smithers....Excellent.
