Ater playing STAR TREK several times, you'll discover which techniques work best for you. Here are some tips you will find helpful in your mission:
THE KLINGON ENCOUNTER
* Keep the Enterprise moving - Klingons can't easliy destroy a moving target.
* Store up Photon Torpedoes for later sectors when enemy Klingons are more numerous.
* Learn how to get Klingons to persue the Enterprise in a line, and easily destroy them with one Photon blast.
THE ANTI-MATTER SAUCER
* It always moves away from the Enterprise; to destroy it, make a swift about-face and fire away.
* Dock with your Starbase in early rounds to build supplies for more difficult rounds.
* Try NOT to dock in later rounds for increased bonus STU's.
ASTEROID FIELD / METEOR SHOWER
* You can only use your Enterprise steering controls.
* Wind your way through obstacles by lightly moving joystick left or right to turn and immediately let Enterprise center itself.
* Only for wide sweeping turns should you HOLD the joystick left or right.
* During this round, relax and replenish Enterprise supplies and prepare for NOMAD.
* Be patient, observe MOMAD's movements.
* NOMAD has a tendency to place mines in a cluster, steer carefully towards the mines to trak NOMAD.
* Avoid hitting or shooting mines, they will explode and deplete your supplies.
* Effective use of Warp Drive can allow you to position yourself near NOMAD.
