Star Trek reference

The game obviously tries to distance itself from mentioning anything Star Trek-related by name, probably to minimize the risk of lawsuits. However, a careful look at the de-protected BASIC code reveals the following string names, which refer to various crew positions:

SP$="First Officer:":CK$="Navigations Officer:":UH$="Communications Officer:":SC$="Engineer:":MC$="Medical Officer:":SU$="Weapons Officer:"

The two-letter abbreviations correspond quite neatly to Spock, Chekov, Uhura, Scotty, McCoy and Sulu - names that every Trekkie should recognize instantly.
