I did not vote in the poll because I never canceled my pre order for the ST LE.
Wile I do feel better after watching the videos and think ST will be a hit I am still disappointed at Stern for not making this the first LCD game and I still don't like the RED DMD or some of the cartoonish graphics but all of that is out of my control for now. Still hoping something may change when they have their big reveal at the expo.

Quoted from Hwawonyu:

Also I am getting pissed at the ball hang up or dead spot below the pops.

The Star Trek Pro I played at Flippers also had the ball hang up below the popbumpers. Wonder if that's gonna be a problem on the LE as well?

Quoted from nichipax:

No second thoughts. As a hardcore Star Trek fanatic (my ST collection is valued over 250k), I would have bought the machine no questions asked. However, is it definitely overpriced and does not deliver as I would have hoped. When, the announcement came out felt like a total letdown when there is so much of ST to offer. Wish JJP would have got the license instead. It is a generic pinball machine with a ST toy. Will wait to buy a used one in the future.

I agree with some of what you said. I may not be a hardcore Star Trek fanatic but I have been a fan sense the first show aired on broadcast TV September 8,1966 when I was almost 8 years old. I have many different Star Trek items in my collection but I have no idea what the total value is. Too many items to list, probably some hid away I have forgot about over the years but my biggest items include all 4 Star Trek pinball machines, well I pick up the LE hopefully Monday. Three working SEGA Star Trek SOS vector video games, including the Captains Chair cockpit, Star Trek Voyager cockpit video game as well as a new in the box Voyager video game kit. Hardcore, well maybe, lets just say I would have bought the STLE if it turned out to be a turd but it's not, I haven't played the LE yet but I have played the pro and it's a great game and the code is not complete yet (I hope)
Like you I would have loved to see what JJP could have done with the title as I really wanted Star Trek to have an LCD display so yea that was a disappointment as well as the red DMD but that will be fixed with a ColorDMD and hopefully someday we will have color dots.
Yes I think we all are disappointed by the price of the LE, I really don't see the justification for the big jump in price and if it were any other title than Star Trek I would never even consider buying it so unless Stern or another company builds another Star Trek game this is it for me.
