For System 6.x - Mac OS 9
This game works with: SheepShaver, Basilisk II, Mini vMac

"Set in the year 4620, the game puts players in the role of a starship captain sent to explore the galaxy. There is no set path, allowing players to switch freely between mining, ship-to-ship combat, and alien diplomacy. The story eventually expands to resemble a space opera à la Star Trek. Self-aware humor also plays a role within Starflight, such as an encounter with the Starship Enterprise, infrequent messages between a disgruntled loan shark and a smuggler, and a hidden binary code which reveals the telephone number of the developers' home office. In March 1987, Computer Gaming World declared it 'the best science fiction game available on computer.'"


Followed by a sequel, Starflight 2.

I don't have time to fix up this page right this moment, but this is not an EA game. It's property of Binary Systems, and it's found all over the web with the authors' permission.
