[[-a ] file ]
is a game of space glory and war. Below is a summary of commands. For complete documentation, see Trek by Eric Allman.
If a filename is given, a log of the game is written onto that file. If the -a flag is given before the filename, that file is appended to, not truncated.
The game will ask you what length game you would like. Valid responses are ``short'' ``medium'' and ``long'' You may also type ``restart'' which restarts a previously saved game. You will then be prompted for the skill, to which you must respond ``novice'' ``fair'' ``good'' ``expert'' ``commodore'' or ``impossible'' You should normally start out with a novice and work up.
In general, throughout the game, if you forget what is appropriate the game will tell you what it expects if you just type in a question mark.
