Kobayashi Alternative: Miscellaneous Images


Star Trek The Kobayashi Alternative, along with other Simon & Schuster games, featured an unusual book-style of packaging. Rather than a box, the game sported a hard cover and spine with a ring-bound manual inside. To secure the floppy disk, pamphlet, and other loose materials, they were contained within a plastic sleeve or "page" that was also ring-bound. The pamphlet contained startup instructions and a command summary.

Thanks go out to Tim Palgut for several of these images and the above information! See also our MANUAL IMAGES page.

We strive to archive high quality images for our games, but we need your help!

  1. Please check our list of requests below and scan in/photograph anything you have on that list.
  2. We request that you scan at 300 DPI, and please do not edit the scanned image in any way (we prefer to do that). We're looking for photographs to be sharp looking and a minimum of 640x480 (the bigger the better).
  3. Email your images into gaming@trekcore.com You will be fully credited and help preserve gaming history!

We are in need of the following scans:

  • Photos of game assets sitting together.
  • If you have an image you think would go well here but isn't listed, please email us.
