Description Edit

WARNING: Can cause severe cases of nostalgia if you've played this game long enough to get a front beam laser.

This is a capture from the classic Commodore-64 version of Elite, a space flight/trading simulator published in 1985 by Firebird Software. This is a sample of the docking sequence once you've become successful enough to afford a docking computer, inspired by the docking scene in the movie "2001"

I did fudge this one a bit as I turned on the docking computers 45 seconds too late, so I layered the music (and the docking sound) onto the capture so it would play in its entirety. Hopefully it was still enough to make you look for the tan "F5" key on the right hand side of your keyboard so you could spy Diso's space station out of your port window.
