Set your phasers to awesome! Classic Game Room reviews STAR TREK THE MOTION PICTURE the video game for the Vectrex from 1982. Star Trek the Motion Picture was Paramount's 1979 lackluster answer to 1977's Star Wars. For the first time the crew of the Enterprise arrived on the big screen and confronted V'ger, a giant space-something-or-other heading towards Earth! Watch out! Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Sulu, Uhura, Scotty, Chekov and numerous nameless ensigns piloted the brand new Enterprise into battle against a model surrounded by cotton balls and fake spider webs. The result was about three hours of some brilliant filmmaking mixed with a terrible script and some bizarre outfits. The result was a unique Star Trek film that doesn't quite fit with the series. Star Trek The Motion Picture the video game for Vectrex has little to do with the movie at all, in fact it has more in common with Star Wars. Players shoot Romulan and Klingon space ships with a laser cannon, refuel shields at a space station and fly through black holes. Smooth controls and vector graphics make the game fun and playable, although very repetitive. Fans of old school space ship shooters should enjoy Star Trek on Vectrex because of the old school gameplay and fun Star Trek overlay.
