When the player exits the game to DOS, the following message appears just above the command prompt: "Thank you for playing StarGlider - Have a nice DOS!"
The game was shown regularly on the Saturday morning ITV kid's show Get Fresh
. To quote from Rainbird's official memorial site, "two players had to battle at the same time get the highest score in a specially modified time-restricted version of the game". This was probably the first instance in UK television history of a computer game being included on a television show not as a freaky high-tech novelty, but as a organic part of youth culture, as relevant as pop music or BMX.
