Let's try an explanation of the different parts of this ASCII art:
The middle part is the battle action happening, this being the final showdown:
The USS Reliant commandeered by Khan fires a torpedo (RELIANT FIRING PH TORP).
This deals a crippling blow to the Enterprise, which loses warp drive capability (WARP DRIVE DAMAGED).
Khan has triggered the Genesis Device which will explode soon, but the Enterprise cannot escape the blast radius on impulse drive alone (COURSE SET TO 8-8).
Spock sacrifices himself by repairing the warp core by hand, suffering deadly radiation burns. (**NEW REPAIR TECHNIQUE**)
Finally, the warp drive comes back online, the Enterprise escapes the blast radius (WARP DRIVE REPAIRED!)

The bottom part represents the battlefield around the Mutara nebula:
B is the Space Station Regula One, where Dr. Marcus developed the Genesis Device
It is in orbit around the Planet Regula (or Genesis Planet) G
The Reliant(R) has fired a torpedo(#) at the Enterprise(E)
