Thanks to Yerzmyey for the heads up on a new ZX81/Timex Sinclair 1000/1500 game, "Ferengi", said to be "a continuation of the classic ZX-81 game 'Klingons'". It looks like the archive contains versions for both unexpanded and expanded systems, with instructions to record to a real tape if you prefer not to play in an emulator. Get the archive file (.rar) here. From the notes:

A ZX-81 game (C) 2008 by HOOY-PROGRAM & ANDRE***

Idea, gfx, code by YERZMYEY/H-PRG
Code improvement by ANDRE***

INSTRUCTION:
This game is a continuation of the classic ZX-81 game "Klingons". :) This time Klingons were flying through space with a ship full of gold-pressed latinum for the Empire. Sadly (luckily for you ;) ) they crashed in an asteroid field and all the gold-pressed latinum bars are flying among the asteroids now. This is an opportunity for you. And you're Ferengi so you LOVE latinum. :) That's why you have to enter the asteroid field with your spaceship and collect as many latinum bars as you can, before more Klingons come here. ;) Ferengi Rules of Acquisition tell you to do that even though the asteroid field is the most dangerous place for a spaceship. You must avoid the asteroids - they will make you a dead Ferengi for sure.
Control panel of your ship: cursor keys - "5" and "8" (left/right).
Good luck, YOU UGLY ORANGE DWARF!!!!!!! ;-) ;-) ;-) (I said "dwarf", not "Worf").
Yours faithfully,
YERZMYEY/HOOY-PROGRAM
