trek is a game of space glory and war.
Below is a summary of commands. For complete documentation, see
by Eric Allman.
The game will ask you what length game you would like. Valid responses are “short”, “medium”, and “long”. 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 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.
