One version is common, at least one other version is rare
 Game designed by Jez San.
 Game contents contained a sci-fi novella (English or German) by UK novelist/scriptwriter James Follett that described the background story. A Playguide, Keyguide and a giant game poster were also included with the game.
 In 1986, Jez San compiled a special time-limited version of STARGLIDER which featured every Saturday morning in the UK on ITV kid's show "Get Fresh". Two contestants simultaneously played the special version, and the one with the highest score at the end of 3 minutes was deemed the winner.
 An Amiga-based coin-op conversion of Starglider was developed by Bally-Sente, but never went into production [Source: The Bird Sanctuary website].
 Game designer Jez San was keen to make the Amiga conversion of the game solid 3D rather than wireframe. Telecomsoft, however, argued that this would excessively delay the Amiga release and that solid 3D would be better left for the sequel, STARGLIDER 2 [Source: The Bird Sanctuary website].
