Summary: This game had everything going for it, even Walter and George reprising their roles as Sulu and Chekov, but the game just falls flat. The levels are repetitive and very difficult, almost impossible even with invinciblity as another reviewer here said. The game gets old fast, the game play is just the same thing every level. This game is also very dull, I tried to play this game twice and I always stop by the fourth level.

Summary: I went ahead and bought this game, despite the repeated onine warnings against it. While I actually enjoyed the ship graphics (the character CG is terrible), I got terribly frustrated. Even with all the cheats, this game is near impossible to complete. I gave it a month, on and off, and finally got rid of it. Unless you just want the opportunity to blow up original series starships, do yourself a favor and stay far, far away!
Summary: That is what you will ask yourself after a few minutes of playing it. The story begins with Sulu commanding the Excelsior and when he responds to a distress beacon from Enterprise (commanded by Chekov) the ship flies into a "vortex" and is suddenly transposed into an alternate universe. The Federation is no longer a peacful utopian organization and Sulu is accused of treason.
Summary: I love Star Trek in its many forms. I am 38, I grew up with Star Trek. Unfortunately,.. 1. This game is difficult enough that the what fun there could have been is sucked out of it. The controller configurations are not intuitive, it takes a lot of effort to get used to them, I finally choose the second configuration. The missions are very very long, and they typically cresendo to very difficult challenges at the end.
Summary: An interesting idea for a Star Trek game and the thought of having huge fighter battles while weaving through massive cruisers sounds quite appealing, especially to Star Trek fans, however the reality is altogether a different matter. The makers of the game probably created it over a few coffee breaks judging by how much effort went into it.
Summary: Bad, that's the only word that comes into my head when you mention this game. No pretty words, here are my feelings on this game and it's shortcomings. Your fighter is just... Sluggish and barely controllable. Your capital cruiser just sits there and is more than willing to take whatever pounding the AI cares to throw at it.
