Aside from having the Star Trek branding, there is little else to prove this game has anything to do with Star Trek, given the limited screen real-estate of the Microvision. The game essentially challenges players with shooting phaser blasts at moving targets that swipe across the top of the screen. Three arrow buttons are present on the cartridge face for shooting diagonally left, right, or straight up.

Players may choose the size of the targets (ships represented by a line of pixels onscreen) as 4, 3, 2, 1, or C, which stands for Changeable. Speeds are Fast, Slow, or Changeable. The Targets button allows players to select a number of ships from 1 to 9. These numbers are multiplied by 10, so selecting 3 will give players 30 targets. An audio signal sounds with successful attacks.
