Star Trek (ZX81 Cassette 50 Game 6)

Do you want Kirk kissing an alien, or men with Cornish pasties on their heads or Whoopi Goldberg working behind a bar, or even some JJ Abrams lens flare? Or any other lazy cliche about Star Trek you or I care to regurgitate?

There might be some of that in this game*, but I don’t know because I lost the will to live halfway through reading the on-screen instructions. That’s not really a surprise given that I’ve never even watched an episode of Star Trek anyway and couldn’t really give a stuff about Klingons and Borg and that bloke in The Next Generation who’s supposed to be a robot but just looks like he has jaundice. (Cue the emails of complaint from men who have never touched another person in a sexy way telling me how amazing Deep Space 9 is).
