On the Amiga version of Elite to trigger the first mission you just need to jump to the next galaxy and then make a number of jumps there, maybe 16 or 32. Quite a good plan is to head for a couple of stars that are very close to each other then you can do multiple jumps without having to refuel.
After this I think the following missions are triggered similarly by doing a galactic jump followed by a number of local jumps.
Its not to do with kills or status.
Good luck Commander - and watch out for the Constrictor!
