SlyDC just updated his blog with a bit more info:

He's traced the pins of the NEC all in one micro, (thanks!)

PlgDavid: can you ask slydc to flip the pcb over in this pic: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-S0V0h08qeQ8/ViRDlpe0uPI/AAAAAAAAASc/NLHVDKUgaCw/s1600/battle%2Bvader.jpg and take a picture of the back?

The 'two missile pins' and 'two start pins' thing is confusing. Are they shorted together when the button is pushed?

On the cartridge:
capacitor C01, I see one leg connects to upd pin 18; where does the other leg go?
Also what are the markings on capacitors C01 thru C04?
Also is resistor R02 5.6K or 5.7K? the stripe is poorly visible.
Also are there any markings on R04 to show what value/type of resistor pack it is?
