Super Star Trek was a text-based simulation game.
It was originally created by Mike Mayfield in BASIC on a SDS Sigma 7 mainframe computer in 1971 as Star Trek (not to be confused with the World Builder game of the same name). He re-wrote it for a HP 2000C minicomputer in 1972.
Bob Leedom expanded the game and David H. Ahl published it in his updated book, BASIC Computer Games, with permission from the Star Trek rights holders, in 1974. This gave the game massive popularity, as BASIC Computer Games was the first computer book to sell over 1 million copies.
Chris Nystrom converted it to C in 1996 as Super Star Trek Classic.
