I don't know how long you have been but............WELCOME BACK ROB!

Yes welcome back RobT. Glad to see you chiming in these crazy ST threads. Are you getting a LE?

Quoted from SaminVA:

Stern, Do you hear Us
The pin is Great

Why does it suck?

Quoted from SaminVA:

3 reasons it sucks
!) It's a DMD not an LCD
2) It's red
3) It's in Star Trek, it should have a LCD

LOL, serious question though. Because I have heard it from a few others. What is wrong with the red DMD? Does it clash with the artwork? Would you rather have the orange one? Blue is not an option from Stern.

Quoted from Part_3:

Blue is an option from Stern. They sell the kit separately.


Yep you are right. When I said "not an option from Stern" I meant not shipped with a blue DMD in the game.

Quoted from SaminVA:

Now why do I hate The red DMD, I guess their ok on a pin like BS Dracula which I have played. I thought the movie sucked and the pin was slightly better. Sorry BSD fans.
Blue is my favorite color and I think it goes better with Star Trek or any space theme.
At this point if we are stuck with the red DMD then I hope ColorDMD will make a color DMD kit like I have on my STTNG but boy an LDC screen with real movie c

Thank you for the post but it really doesn't explain why a blue DMD is better than a red DMD.

Quoted from Part_3:

Red seems harsher on the eyes......

You could be right. I feel that red may be a better choice for the premium owners because of the red side armor. Plus I like the contrast of red to blue on the LE. Too much blue and it's gets bland to me.

Quoted from RobT:

Say it however you want. Wide body pins aren't as fast as standard body pins.

I agree. Ever play a Space Invaders, Hot doggin', Stern Split Second, Flight 2000? I could list more but all these games are slow. F2K even added extra kickers and still you watch the ball go East and West. These games are fun but still not as fast as they could be if you put the same layout on a standard body. Play a Flight 2000 then go play a Gamatron, same layout but one is much faster than the other.
