Murky Memories: Dominic Cianciolo and I used to play the Commander’s Edition of this game in the early 1980’s.

At the time I was very into the new Marvel Super Heroes game, Dungeons & Dragons, Car Wars, Toon, and the video games Zork and Wizardry, but there was something about this game that just hit a nerve. I loved it.

Sadly, I can’t find my rule book or the box which I thought I’d tucked away for my children to enjoy one day. I do, however, still have my folder of information about Captain Jacob Flynn and his ship, the USS Trident. Captain Flynn and his first officer, Cartho Tallvac, were heroes not unlike the great Captain Kirk and his crew.

I’ve just learned of a variety of online versions of this game, I may have to find the time to play a bit this summer.
