Video Trek 88 is a computer game developed and published by Windmill Software in 1982, based on the earlier Star Trek text game. As opposed to the mainframe version, both the galactic chart and the local map are displayed side by side.
The game is suitable for monochrome or color adapters, but is best viewed in monochrome. It was one of Windmill Software's earliest games, written in the BASIC programming language (specifically, BASICA) and requires an interpreter such as GWBASIC to be executed.
This Video Game contains examples of:
- Excuse Plot: The United Federation of Planets has recommissioned you from retirement to take charge of the defensive attack against the combined forces of Romulan and Klingon Empires.
- Gotta Kill Them All: You must kill all the enemies in the sectors of the galaxy.
- Timed Mission: You must kill all the enemies before you run out of time.
