Star Trek is a franchise that has captured the hearts of audiences for decades. Star Trek has become a cultural icon of its futuristic technology, captivating characters, and daring adventures.
One of the first Star-Trek-inspired computer games ever created is a text-only strategy game initially written in 1971 by Mike Mayfield. Later it was expanded by Bob Leedom, who also gave it the title Super Star Trek. The most popular version was published in 1978 in the book BASIC COMPUTER GAMES, a collection of program listings collected by David H. Ahl, the founder of Creative Computing.
Super Star Trek was one of the most popular games in the book, and it quickly gained a following among early computer enthusiasts. You can read more about it in this article.
More than 40 years later, a dedicated fan created a free remake of the classic game, merging the text-game mechanics with the graphics of another Star Trek game: The 25th Anniversary. The new game also features the original voices of the cast, taken from TV episodes.
