The first Star Wars game ever released

Original Apple-produced Star Wars/Star Trek cassette tape game released in 1978 for the Apple II, featuring the unlicensed software "Starwars, P/N A2T0002X" and "Startrek, P/N A2T0002X." This was the first Star Wars game ever released, casting the player as a 'space pilot trainee' who destroys TIE fighters using a first-person heads-up display. The original Star Wars movie had been released only a year earlier, and Apple hoped to capitalize on the Skywalker-mania that gripped the nation. The inclusion of the Star Trek game made this cassette a grand unification of sci-fi fandom. These tapes were manually copied as orders came in, using a rig that fed eight recording tape drives from one master-an innovative example of the 'print on demand' model used by many businesses today!
