Never had "Star Raiders", but a friend did. I have fond memories of
calling the Atari 800 number and requesting tech info packages with
the register level info (and examples!) for configuring the various
chips. I wonder if I still have any of those old photocopies...
My best project was to bit-bang interface a small ADC to the 800
through the joystick ports. The plan was to sample audio and display
it on screen as a digital 'scope demo, but I don't think I ever made
that work quite right. I did manage to graph voltage vs. time curves
of battery discharge, comparing nicads to alkalines and looking for
the "memory effect".
