Starflight - Interstel Security Access

Interstel Security Access Code Wheel

Security Code Wheel provides the access code that allows player to leave Starport in the game. Entering incorrect code would send unbeatable `police ships` to destroy the player's spaceship. Follow the instructions from Command Summary Card:

YOU MUST ENTER A SECURITY ACCESS CODE when requested by Interstel Security at launch. The access code consists of three variables: a location, an artifact, and a race. Locations are on the rim of the outer wheel; artifacts are on the rim of the inner wheel. Races appear below the cut-out windows on the inner wheel. Use the wheel like this:

  1. When the request appears on the screen, find the location on the outer wheel. Line it up with the artifact on the inner wheel.
  2. Without changing the alignment, find the race on the inner wheel. The correct access code is visible in the window above the race name. Type the access code and press Return.
The Game

Starflight is a space exploration role-playing adventure video game developed by Binary Systems and published by Electronic Arts in 1986. Originally developed for IBM PC compatibles. Set in the year 4620, the game puts players in the role of a starship captain sent to explore the galaxy. There is no set path, allowing players to switch freely between mining, ship-to-ship combat, and alien diplomacy. The broader plot of the game emerges slowly, as the player discovers that an ancient race of beings is causing stars to flare and destroy all living creatures. The game has been widely praised by both contemporary and modern critics, and is one of the earliest instances of a sandbox game.
