Quoted from MrMikeman:

It works perfectly. I have both boards in my STTNG.

Thank You!

Quoted from ectobar:

No it wouldn't. Super ramps are independent of modes. Sounds normal to me.

sorry it said galactic ramps are lit (or galactic warp ramp is lit) can't remember but it did say 'galactic' not 'super' (that was my mistake when I said super ramps).

#8853 12 days ago
Quoted from rai:

Just played today first time I’ve come on this but I did an away team shot and it said supper ramps is quailed but it also must have been the last shot timer so it just sent me into the pick a mission routine. Must be a bug because if super ramps were qualified that would have added time etc.

The Away Team shot also functions to start the next mode when it is flashing. You had probably just completed the third mission on the right side of the triangle, which gives you three in a row and super ramps.

Quoted from Flyfalcons:

I think it must've been simultaneous that the last shot became lit just as I hit the GAT shot, but it was weird to me that it said 'galactic warp ramp is lit' at the same time that the mode was over pick a new mode.

Anyone have a secret technique they use to hit that away team shot? I'm struggling for sure.

should be easier when the ball is trapped (not easy on the roll) but also make sure you drop the away team flipper to close the door as the ball gets past it gives it a bit extra encouragement to get in.

Quoted from M1Cha3l:

Quick question I have a STTNG and I converted everything to LED and now some of the lights don't work correctly. I searched and realized I can't really do this on the machine and was wondering if installing an LED OCD Board and GI OCD board will correct the issue. if not what is the best solution to keep a full LED conversion and have lights work properly? Thanks!

Like mrmikeman said, it works great. I put in the LED OCB and GI OCD boards in mine as well - very happy with the results.

If you're not already aware, there's a specific STTNG group here on pinside (https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/sttng-owners-club). There's a great wealth of information there (and support from fellow pinsiders) specific to STTNG. Very handy if you run into issues.

What I do is hit and hold both flippers at the same time when hitting the ball off the left flipper. It's a distraction to me to raise the right the right flipper first. Still a challenging and fun shot.

Try a quick backhand from the right flipper. On my pin it is solid option. Admittedly I haven't had as much success with it on other STs.

#8861 11 days ago

Every now and then on my Stern Star Trek Premium the ball get stuck on top of the Vengeance drop target while it's down. I've seen posts about the drop target not dropping - this is different, it has dropped but the ball is on top of it and won't roll down because I guess the target is not 100% flush with the playfield.

Is there a simple fix for this?

It is a simple fix. Screw these screws in until the drop target is flush.

The other super fun way is shoot the right orbit and let it come around and dead flip off both lower flippers and then lift the upper flipper at the last second. My pin goes through phases where this is really consistent.

I never tried that but could be like on my Metallica where an orbit will dead flip into the scoop.

Curious what Stern Star Trek Pro is valued at ?

It is huo , with about 750 plays
has color dmd
Aurich translite
side blades
a couple additional toy ships installed

thanks much

These are still available NIB so keep that in mind when deciding what a used game is worth to you and what value you place on the mods already installed. To me, 750 plays is barely touched, but most likely past infant mortality issues on the parts.

#8869 11 days ago

I’m not sure about the price but I sold SM with color DMD for $5300 this should be in that range maybe a bit higher or lower.

I’m guessing anywhere from $4900 to $5300

I think any higher price would get people looking at ST premium.

I'm thinking about the same. Maybe up to $5500 having both the Color DMD and Aurich package which is now tough to find and pretty desirable. I think closer to $5k would be a pretty quick sale, $5.5k might sit awhile waiting for the right buyer, but not crazy.

#8871 11 days ago

I just bought a ST Pro with Aurich and Vengeance for $4900 so I concur.

#8872 10 days ago

You’re better off to take out the color DMD and sell for 4900-5000. Use it in another game later, saving yourself the 400 bucks...

Yup, I agree with this 100%. For whatever reason there are tons of people out there who don’t “value” upgrades to pins. Take out the color DMD and offer it to the buyer for an additional $300.

The reason is that some of us actually like to play pinball and don't care about 'upgrades'.

I will say that the color dmd is nice, but I'm still not interested in paying for it.

That’s great for you!

That means you’ll get the game at $4900 with a regular DMD.

Or is he one of those “I don’t want it therefore I shouldn’t pay for it but I don’t want you to remove it”...

#8877 9 days ago

Color DMD is best mod ever, worth every penny. I’ve bought at least a dozen maybe more.

Just looking at modding my Star Trek Premium, and I would have a few questions:

- With regards to the laser, which option is best: the GI dimmer or the replacement green or blue laser ? Looks like the blue laser is rather high power, and the green would be preferred for safety ?
- With regards to the PoP bumper caps, are they going to be restocked anytime soon ?

Regards

Awesome. I recommend the pinbulbs.com upgrade for the bulbs. Buy a couple extra Cyans for the shield targets and a couple red/oranges for under the upper L playfield

#8884 1 day ago

Scoot #8862 Thanks again I just noticed that adjusting the drop target screws so it's flush with the playfield also fixed the ball going SDTM when rolling out of the Vengeance.

On my personal machine; I have our high power blue. The safety is a concern only if you operate without the star field generation cap ... and it's a concern for all the lasers.

If I'm being honest; the green contrasts the best because of the redness of the playfield art. Blue tends to be absorbed by the lower part of the PF.

Stern Star Trek Popcap are retired as explained here:
https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/opinioninterest-check-stern-star-trek-popcaps/page/5#post-5874987
There is a very small chance a may have a few available at some point; that said - you should consider these not being restocked and only available second hand on machines.

I'm doing a small run of my Star Trek translite/decal packages if anyone is looking to ditch the actors and pimp their game up some. I think most people who were interested have already contacted me, but just dropping a quick note in here to PM me if you weren't on my list and you want in. Closing the list soon, so kinda last minute call.

It was actually all led'd out with 2smd's from cointaker from the last guy. Except for the red ship inserts on the right. Those are on a board.

I got a nice mods package coming already. Couldn't resist. Coming next is a headphone/audio control and shaker.

But I'm eyeballing that stainless steel one in the comments just above tho.
