Well, go to your friendly neighborhood command line
(*nix, inlcuding BSD, Linux, and Mac OS X: a terminal window. Windows: emulated DOS)

go to the directory containing 'uqm'.
Type 'uqm --help' and hit enter. This will summarize options. For example:
"uqm --cscan pc" will substitute words for the bizarre 3D0 symbols you see on the planet scan screen.

On a macintosh, you will need to activate uqm from further out the directory tree in order for it to find the content. For example, I need to issue the command
"Ur-Quan\ Masters.app/Contents/MacOS/uqm --help" to see the command line options. I imagine that there could (but not necessarily) be a similar displacement in other systems.

If you are running Windows and wish to simply use the "run..." start menu option, you will have to provide the explicit path. I do not know whether you will be able to receive text responses (like those returned by "--help")

FYI, here are the options supported on my version:
The Ur-Quan Masters v0.13 (compiled 02/04/03 23:04:41)

Options:
 -r, --res=WIDTHxHEIGHT (default 640x480, bigger works only with --opengl)
 -d, --bpp=BITSPERPIXEL (default 16)
 -f, --fullscreen (default off)
 -o, --opengl (default off)
 -a, --openal (default off)
 -c, --scale=mode (bilinear, biadapt or biadv, default is none)
 -s, --scanlines (default off)
 -p, --fps (default off)
 -n, --contentdir=CONTENTDIR
 -M, --musicvol=VOLUME (0-100, default 100)
 -S, --sfxvol=VOLUME (0-100, default 100)
 -T, --speechvol=VOLUME (0-100, default 100)
 -q, --audioquality=QUALITY (high, medium or low, default medium)
 -u, --nosubtitles
The following options can take either '3do' or 'pc' as an option:
 -m, --music : Music version (default 3do)
 --cscan     : coarse-scan display, pc=text, 3do=hieroglyphs (default 3do)
 --menu      : menu type, pc=text, 3do=graphical (default 3do)
 --font      : font types and colors (default pc)
 --scroll    : ff/frev during comm.  pc=per-page, 3do=smooth (default pc)

one last note: many of these are double-dashes. Pay attention to the length, or copy/paste.

NOTE: as of last evening, no longer the #1 poster.
