STARCROSS responds by showing you the release number and serial number of your copy of the game.
This command causes time in the game to pass. Normally, between moves, no time is passing as far as STARCROSS is concerned -you could leave your computer, take a nap, and return to the game to find that nothing has changed. WAIT is used when you want to find out what will happen in the game if you do absolutely nothing while time passes. For example, if you encounter an alien being, you could WAIT and see what it will do.
