Default Re: what's the 'DISP' command?

That forces the game to display your text in it's own window, instead of using the planet exploration window. On a planet-based quest, that's irrelevant, but IIRC, it can matter when a quest triggers at times other than planet exploration.

Relevant quote from Fingers at Infinite Space Federation (and mirrored at
The PAGE block is indeed an "event". It usually has a page of text with an image, but if the ACTN line doesn't include "popup" then nothing will be displayed. Note that if the page is triggered by an exploration event, it will be displayed in the exploration window (the one with the planet). This can be overridden with the "DISP 1" command as seen in the victory message. This causes the page to be displayed in its own pop-up window.
