A Classic Star Trek Episode made using Commodore 64 Character Graphics

c64-star-trek

This video features a fan made classic Star Trek episode created on a Commodore 64 using the machine’s built-in character graphics. It was written in BASIC, then recorded to videotape where the soundtrack was added. The pacing and sound could use some tweaks, but this is exactly the type of computer project I would have gotten excited about as a kid.
