This is such a great game and has very smooth play through. The game logic is easy to understand and very satisfying. I love the vengeance ship and the various multiball game play. I added a color dmd which makes the game even better. Such a great variety in game play modes and missions. Who doesn't like to take a punch at Kahn!

What a game. So much to do and hard to master. Great sound and lighting. Install a color DMD and the fun gets even better. Just do much fun to play and really fast. Hard to master, but that is a goood thing.

Great game. Rules are a little vague, but you'll figure them out after spending enough dollars.

There's not alot of Stern Tables that I 'love', but I genuinely love playing this game. Very fast game with a really deep rule-set. Great theme and lot's of great callouts.

I don't understand why this game is ranked so high.
Code is very bad IMO, very boring and repetitive. Callouts are always the same for each Vengeance multiball. Ramps are smooth but i find the gameplay is bad (ball hop at flipper bats, cheap feeling, airballs...)
There's really nothing really exciting in this game, we are far from a Met or a TWD. STTNG is a better Star Trek machine for me.
I keep my ST Pro two weeks and it was really enough.

Excellent Start Trek "update". The warp shot is so satisfying. The pro model is just as good as premium and limited minus a smaller lightshow but that is very much so OK. The rules needs to be straighten out with code uptates but I keep coming back to it.

Great sound, excellent lightshow around and fun gameplay. A bit dull playfield art unfortunately.

Geat game fun to play. Challenging and has a rewarding playfield. Highly recommended to play. The only thing and the only thing I thought was a problem is I would loose sight of the ball sometimes when all the led s started flashing. Wih I owned one.

Game play is fast and fun and just what I was looking for. The warp ramp is very satisfying when you can hit it multiple times in a row. The sounds are surprisingly good to me since I’m not a big fan of Star Trek. The lighting effect is pretty good for a pro version. The ramps are smooth and great for combos. If you’re thinking of adding this game to your collection don’t hesitate. I also think the code is pretty fun especially how you can pick which way you want to progress. The button on the apron is cool too.

What I like most about this game is the feel of the shots. Stringing shots together just feel great. Modes are fun to play, and depth is great. Might not be the most complex of rules, but the game just shoots and plays fun.

Love this game. Fast and fun with a deep ruleset. Very enjoyable and plays well. Very good pin to have for a first buy or if you only space for one in a collection.

Star trek is a fun game with good rules, good sounds and callouts, and cool toys. I really don't like the playfield or translite artwork.

Awesome game I will play for hours!!

Stern top five for sure. Great lighting and layout. Fun ramps and amazing game speed. I wish I could afford one but for now I will just play when I see it. Underrated in my opinion as thus pin has everything for adrenaline junkies like me. Speed flow and consistent shots make this a top five pin in my opinion.

This game really takes the good points of STTNG and provides longer ball time. Fast play, fun shots. Really cool sounds. Animations and artwork could be better

I can't say enough about this game. It has great flow and modes. For a pro model I am impressed. The light show on code version 1.61 is superb. The playfield is a liilte bland when it comes to art, but the rest makes up for it. I think this one will go up in value later on. Space the final frontier......

Wide flowing shots with a mission based ruleset. Pro and Prem/LE gameplay almost identical.

I enjoyed this game quite a bit. Rules seemed to have a decent depth, shots are definitely there and I enjoyed the art package.
That being said, some of the features and art/animations seemed a bit dated given the time that this particular machine came out. I still would love to own one, and can see myself playing it when I see it in the line up - it was a fun game and kept me engaged.

"Star Trek" is a smooth machine. I love that you can choose which "mission" you want to play before you play it. It never really feels like the same game twice. Ramps and targets are fairly easy to hit. That's not really a criticism as the speed of the game more than makes up for it. The callouts and dialogue are a touch weak as some line readings come across as phoned-in. I know it's an arcade piece but the actors could have at least made it sound like they were trying. The game reminds me of a high-tech "Attack From Mars" at times. It's a hell of a lot of fun to play and the action makes you feel like you're living the new films.

I hope this clip art era of pinball is dying. Good game, first time I played I was able to start a multiball, 2 games I was able to win a game. I will always play one when I see one.

Fun and fast game with good flow. I agree with the several comments saying this game was one of Stern's standouts during the couple of years surrounding its release. I think the game's strength is in the combination of the modes, the flow of the shots, and the interaction of the playfield activity with the activity/graphics on the DMD, accentuated with the lighting effects. But while this machine is very good, it has a few disappointing weaknesses. They include lackluster and unmotivating callouts/speech, and missed opportunities to go deeper with the good rule set and to get one or two more features into the playfield. More specifically, while the rule set and the playfield are quite good -- above average -- they are missing a little something extra that would have made them great. And while the speech and callouts are okay, ultimately they are mediocre when you consider the material that the theme made available to Stern, and they do little to help build emotional engagement and tension with the gameplay. Thus, in summary, this game is solid and entertaining -- fun to play if available on location -- but falls short of true greatness in my opinion (which is worth saying because the game could have been better without a lot more effort).
