Re: Star Trek: Strategic Operations Simulator (1983)

A friend of mine has a MAME arcade cabinet with Sega's Star Trek installed. One day I fiddled with the game configuration settings and got it to recognize the rotary "spinner" wheel control as the arcade units had. Trust me, if you've only played the home versions, the control is NOTHING like the spinner version, which really lets to wheel around and zigzag. The photon torpedo on the arcade game was amazing, and no home version really replicated it.
