My ST Premium should be here in a few days, and I'm crazy excited to talk about this amazing machine. What are your likes and dislikes? Favorite mods? Highest scores? Let's talk Stern Star Trek! I realize there's a Generic Star Trek club, but I'd like to focus on Stern's version.

Great game you're gonna enjoy it!

Built like a brick shithouse. I haven't had a single issue in over a year. Never had to lift the playfield even.

Lame animations but, meh.

Leaving my pro un-modded save for Cliffy's switch slot protectors on the in-lane switches.

Be sure to check out this thread for scoring tips!

Welcome to the club - you're gonna love the Premium's light show! One of my favorite features.

I'll have to keep and eye out. I didn't realize they changed from tier to tier.

I agree, the best animations are not on the first level. I always try to stack 3 deep on at least one tier before I move on. I think Nero is probably the easiest for me.

The Generic Star Trek Club is 80% about the Stern version. Great game, enjoy it!

I got to page 9 without any Stern. There are 111 pages. With my luck the Stern's show up on page 10.

They do (looks like post #479 by Zitt). This was when the game was first announced though.

Other than the interesting (in retrospect) initial angst over the perceived look of the game, you can probably skip well ahead in the thread to when the code was more developed and more ST owners were providing experienced input.

I know there is a ton of info in the thread... Sorry if I sounded like a smart ass, that wasn't my intent when I sent it. I went through exactly what you're going through now since I didn't buy mine until after the code was updated (about a year or so after release I guess). I know there is page after page on Sterns version with just an occasional question about STTNG popping up.

No offense taken. Just found it weird there wasn't a dedicated club. Either way, I'll go scour the Generic thread. My iPad is slow, so I lost patience and started this one.

Can't wait for mine to arrive!

I'm with the op though. Couldn't care less about stng and would rather not have to sift through impertinent info.

There's my problem I never go 3 deep and don't get much farther than Kobi!

I think I shall start trying that!

I'll be a red shirt. If Lt. Leslie can make it 57 episodes I feel like I'll be alright. He did wear gold and blue occasionally though...

#17 5 years ago

Freight just called. My Premium will be here tomorrow! First NIB. Will I sleep tonight?
