Microvision Phaser Strike

handheld video game

Originally entitled Star Trek: Phaser Strike, this handheld game was designed by Milton Bradley in 1979 to coincide with the release of "Star Trek: The Motion Picture." It was the first electronic handheld game to include a Star Trek theme, with players destroying Klingon ships using three phaser banks located at the bottom of the screen. When Milton Bradley's licensing agreement with Paramount ran out, the game was re-packaged and entitled simply Phaser Strike, dropping all Star Trek references.
