SPAG (May 15, 1994)
Its parser lacks some of the nicer features incorporated later. The writing was very well done. It presented the alien artifacts without making them too bizarre or cryptic. The plot allowed for plenty of exploration, yet kept things moving towards the final goal. The game's main weakness is its NPC's.
