A Star Trek variant in which you command the U.S.S.
Valiant in an attempt to stop the Mutin space fleet from launching an
attack on the Federation from the galaxy of Pladax. The screen is
divided into three sections, showing your ship and any damage sustained
together with a full status report, a command area showing your options
and position in the galaxy and a command window. All of the usual
shields, photon torpedoes, hyper warp etc. are available as you move
around the galaxy in pursuit of the Mutins. You must locate the enemy
and judge how best to deal with him, ensuring that you maintain the
safety of stars and star bases which themselves can be destroyed with
the wrong weapons - not the objective! Battle Star is an excellent
simulation of space warfare and has extensive onscreen instructions. It
should keep you busy for many an hour.
