Starship was a fair 3D Wireframe strategy/action game which was being released on the Atari ST first, and then ported to the C64 at a later date.
It seems that the Atari ST version never surfaced also, as nothing can currently be found on the web whilst doing research.
We assume that the game was a kind of Elite clone, which was quite popular at the time, but we are unsure how true to Elite the game really was. It could be that it was deemed too much of a clone by a particular company and the game was scrapped.
We honestly don’t know much more, and need more research and findings before we can push on with this game.
Something to ponder for the meantime anyway…
