Description from the packaging.

Star Fleet I "The War Begins" Version 2.1 by Trevor Sorensen.

You have completed your training at the Academy. Now is the time to see if those long hours pay off as you accept command of one of the most powerful fighting ships in the known universe- the Invincible class heavy cruiser. Your mission: protect the outer regions of the Alliance from the invading warships of the Krellan and Zaldron empires. You emerge from hyperspace in the Deneb IV region, confident of success- to find yourself surrounded by Krellan destroyers!

Widely acclaimed, Star Fleet I is the first in a series of Star Fleet space strategy games. As the commander of one of 36 galactic heavy cruisers, you control 13 ship systems and are responsible for the lives of 500 crew members while you aggressively eliminate the enemy. Rescuing starbases, capturing and towing enemy vessels, laying mine fields, searching for intruders and repairing damaged systems are all part of a successful battle plan.

You have at your fingertips the use of nearly two dozen starship commands including: phasers, torpedos, shields, transporters, mines, tractor beams, navigation, long-range probes, damage control, internal security, computers, and more. You are automatically given more challenging missions as your command abilities improve, and are awarded decorations for outstanding service as a Starship Commander.

Star Fleet I features:

  • Full color battle action.
  • Enemy tactical and strategic movement.
  • Thirteen starship systems simulated.
  • More than 20 commands available.
  • Sophisticated weapons fire control systems- auto/manual.
