''Starship 1'' is an {{Atari}} UsefulNotes/ArcadeGame from 1976. It's a space FirstPersonShooter, with all the ''[[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries Star Trek]]'' references that Atari could get away with in those less copyrighted days. You fly through [[FasterThanLightTravel hyperspace]], dodging [[AsteroidThicket planets and asteroids]] and shooting enemy spaceships. You can line them up in your crosshairs and shoot them with phasors, or fire one of your five [[SmartBomb proton torpedoes]] and destroy everything on the screen.

* ShoutOut: Copyright was looser then, so the ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' references are somewhere between shout-outs and an outright [[TheMockbuster Mockbuster]]. One of the targets is a side view of the Enterprise with the engine nacelles moved down, while another looks like a front-end view of a Klingon D7 cruiser. Your weapons are the Enterprise’s phasers (called “phasors” here) and photon (“photon”) torpedoes. And you’re fighting for TheFederation, even though you’re shooting at both ‘’Star Trek’’ Federation and Klingon ships.
