Program 2020: Star Trek
What does the Amiga have to do with Star Trek? At first glance, there is only one commercial game: Star Trek: 25th Anniversary for the Amiga 1200/4000 (AGA, 2 MB Chip-Ram, 9 MB HDD). But the history of the Amiga is closely linked to that of Star Trek: In addition to the commercial game, there were still various PD / Shareware games, of which certainly Star Trek: The Game (OCS, 1 MB) by Tobias Richter is the most famous game, In addition, the Amiga has been used for numerous special effects in several Star Trek movies and TV series (header DS9). Furthermore, there were numerous publications on PD-CDs such as graphics, animations, etc. On the AmigaWinterTreffen will be built in various Amigas, where everyone can try the different games.
