I realize there was a similar poll out 2 years ago, but just wanted to start a new poll in case some new guys are here or have new insight. Also the prior thread was out before the remake of AFM.

I sold my STLE (sadly) and kind of miss it.

With the vault release, code update and now available color DMD for ST, I was thinking maybe I could look to replace ST LE (or premium).

I have never owned AFM so that would be much more logical to buy that instead of ST LE.

Anyway, was curious between these two pins what would you guys recommend?

Let's just say LE for both although might be the SE or premium respectively.

ST LE or Premium.....

Oh this is a great question! I love playing both games! Somewhat similar shots, of course, especially the center shot. I've never been able to truly settled this question in my mind.... and therefore couldn't pull the trigger on either. Then Star Wars came out and I got distracted for awhile. LOL.

If you’ve previously owned Star Trek, I’d go with the pin that’s new to you. AFMr is definitely a great choice and is a fun pin. If you want to experience Star Trek again, go for it. We enjoy our Star Trek pro, it’s got a colordmd and shaker. You can’t go wrong with either pin, both are fun in their own way

afm le is a very nice/special pin. general aliens attack Earth theme that doesn't require you being interested in a franchise that is kind of polarizing. My recommendation would be to go with AFM LE

Yeah I owned ST for a while and played it a lot. Thought about getting one back last month and went with a game I never owned instead.

I would do the same here. AFM is a classic. My fav A list BW dmd. On my list to get. ST LE is stunning but AFMLE is no slouch in the looks department either. Topper is sweet!

Good luck.

I have both pins and love both pins, but I would definitely choose ST over AFM. The main reason would have to be the ball interaction between the (2) toys of ST Vengeance against the mothership alien ship of AFM.

You hit the AFM mothership and it shakes, with a knock down bar in front of it and that's pretty much it (pretty cool dmd animation afterwards). However, with the ST vengeance it fires the ball back at you, can freeze the ball and hold it until you hit it again to start a multiball and start a couple of cool modes with Kahn (or Kai, whatever he says at the start of it LOL) modes as well.

Plus, who can forget Klingon multiball and the warp ramp.
