Now that I have my Stern Star Trek LE I have been thinking about installing a ColorDMD. But before I shell out $400.00 I would like to know if it will fit in the LE. We know it will now work with the Sam system and it has been fitted into a few of the newer Stern games but Stern changer the DMD panel for Star Trek and to my knowledge no one has installed one in a Stern Star Trek yet but I believe it wont be long as I am sure sense they are now in stock again I am sure some are destined for the Star Trek pin. I do have a ColorDMD installed in my STTNG so I decided to remove it and make a template of the ColorDMD so I could use it to see how I could fit one in my new pin. I so much wanted it to work but to me it would seem in it's current configuration it just will not work. Wile the 4 outer mounting studs line up the 2 middle studs will have to be cut out of the way which is not a big problem and you would have to make spacers to hold the LCD panel away from the back side of the panel like it is on the STTNG which is also ok and would work. The problem is the LCD panel would drop below the bottom of the Star Trek speaker/DMD panel and that's the problem as the bottom of the panel sits flat on the bottom of the metal back box. So you could change the mounts and put the bottom of the LCD display so it lines up with the bottom of the DMD panel but then the viewing area of the LCD panel will not line up with the cutout on the DMD panel. If you could move the displayed area of the LCD on the panel to line up with the cut out area of the panel it should work but I am not sure if you can do this with the ColorDMD. I made a video showing what I am talking about. I hope we can find a way to make this work.
