Mothership Game Play As Captain Kirk, you view the action from behind the windshield of the Starship Enterprise. Use the Joystick to maneuver your ship through space and aim your gunsight at the appropriate target. Use button 4 to fire lasers at your enemies and the torpedoes they hurl at you. If you can't hit the torpedo, press button 3 to place a protective shield in front of your ship. Your shield will cause the torpedoes to bounce off. If you destroy all the ships in a sector, you will automatically move to the next sector. Each new sector has more enemies who move even faster. If your clear out the first eight sectors, you will enter Sector 9. and face the dreaded Klingon Mothership. Getting Hit If you are hit by a torpedo, your windshield will crack. If you have additional ships left, you will be given another chance to clear out the sector you are in. The Black Hole Rather than fighting through all eight sectors in order to get to Sector 9, you can take a shortcut through the Black Hole. To enter the Black Hole, aim your gunsight and press button 2, the Power Link. You will automatically be transported to Sector 9. There is only one Black Hole in each game. Klingon Mothership Sector 9 contains the deadly Klingon Mothership, which furiously shoots torpedoes of all types at you. The Mothership must be hit directly on the nose in order to be destroyed. Additionally, the Mothership can only be destroyed when its nose is lit up. Beware. very few get out alive! If you do manage to survive (somehow) you will be automatically transported back to Sector 1 and the game will continue. Laser Power and Shield Strength Laser power and shield strength are limited. The gauges are at the bottom of the screen - the line on the left is your remaining laser power and the line on the right is your remaining shield strength. Each of your ships will start with full laser power and shield strength. Keep an eye on your gauges. When the lines start to look low, you will need to refuel at your Space Station. Watch carefully each time you complete all nine sectors in a galaxy. Every new galaxy uses up lasers and shield at quicker rates. Refueling Time your refueling carefully because you only have 1 Space Station in each sector. To refuel, you must hook up with the door of your Space Station by lining up your .
gunsight with the door and then pressing button 2, the Power Link. If you make contact, the Space Station will freeze as your tanks fill up. Number of Ships At the beginning of each game, you will have 3 ships. A bonus ship is awarded each time you destroy the Mothership. Scoring Points are earned for destroying enemy ships, torpedoes, and the Mothership, as follows: Object Points Torpedo 300 Romulans and 300 --- 800 The farther the enemy is from you, Klingons in the more points you get.
