Quoted from jorant:

So I used to own a stern star trek as a pro, and I want to buy a premium to own once again. I was thinking this morning, my god this game seems under appreciated. Why? It is fantastic, and yet people seem like they forgot it existed. Wtf?

This is a very popular game to stream on Twitch, I see it streamed almost every week. So I wouldn't say people forgot about its existence.

I recently acquired my Pro about a month ago and I LOVE IT! I'm relatively new to the pinball world but this game is exactly the kind of game I want to own to get better at pinball. The shots are tight, the modes are deep, and the gameplay is fast. This isn't a beginner's game at all, it forces you to be precise with your shots. Its a keeper for me.

Quoted from zephee:

I tried. Got a message when I called the support number on my machine that the suport line was shutdown due to the pandemic and to send an email instead. Sent an email but have not gotten a response yet. I will try again this week.

Contact your distributor, they will make it right.

Quoted from airplanequartet:

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.

Quoted from ectobar:

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.

Quoted from J85M:

Cool but how do you update a colourdmd? I only own one (my first and only) and the previous owner installed that etc.

Go to colorDMDs website and look under the FAQs section. Very simple and easy to do, takes about 5 mins total.

Mine is one of the last Pro runs in 2019. No issues here.

Quoted from Aard:

I have a Star Trek Pro and want to have some mods installed on it. What are your favourite mods?
I was thinking about upgrading the plastic ramps left and right with the wireframe ramps from the LE machine. Unfortunately I don't know where to buy them.

Mirror blades look great on my pro. Relatively cheap and easy to install, I highly recommend.

I also put shaker motors on all of my sterns. It adds a whole new element to the game and the resale value holds more than other mods.

Last, if you have the money, this is one of the best games to add a color DMD to. Probably my favorite mod and a must have IMO.

Quoted from Mathazar:

I've done all three of those mods to my STPro and whole heartedly agree. The only other mod I've done is to add Cliffy's for ramp protection.

Yes! Cliffys are awesome. My pro was built in 2019 and already had the metal ramp protectors strangely enough. So all I added was the ball eject protector.

Quoted from mbwalker:

Those do look nice. I've been looking at art blades for mine, but can't say I found any that tickles my fancy.
Are those real mirror, or the polished metal?

mbwalker i didn’t know there was a difference! If I had to guess, I’d say they are real mirror. I bought a pair from coin taker during their Black Friday sale. I threw the other set on my AIQ and absolutely love the way it looks. Takes the light shows to a whole new level!

Quoted from cldgin2:

I’ve joined the club! Traded my guardians pro for a pin I’ve wanted for some time . Love this game so much. It’s very modded here still a couple I can do!

Throw a color DMD on that bad boy and you’re set!

Seriously though, this game has a ton of animations that make the color DMD a must have IMO.

Quoted from Ecw0930:

BTW that topper is badass! Love that!

Agreed, I love this topper. Simple yet visually effective.

Quoted from jorant:

Does anyone know where I can buy a NOS stern star trek premium playfield? Mine is warped to hell.

Check with Ron Kruzman, he has a variety of playfields.

Also, there’s a playfield buy/sell/trade thread somewhere on pinside. Post there to get more visibility.
