Amazing game. Love the light show.

This is a fantastic machine. Amazing layout. Incredible lightshow.

This machine suffered initially from incomplete code (as many do!), but the layout and lighting still saved it. Now that a major code update has dropped this pin has really come to life.

If you like the theme, it's a no brainer. Even if you don't, it's a fast bright, flowy machine that'll challenge even the hottest players, and engage newcomers with its sequential challenges. It's one when you really can say, "Shoot at the blinky lights", and it just might start to mean something to a first timer!

Great light show. STLE will only get better with more code. Yes, the play field is similar to SM, but the code makes it a different game. No problems with quality. I will upgrade the speakers. Klingon Multi ball is great. The projector does add to the effects. Buy the LE, premium or pro , you will be happy. Edit. New code, 1.61, new ratings.

Game is great as is, but could be a lot better with some updated code on some certain features:
Vengeance level 3, warp ramp awards, and some other misc.

Best Star Trek to date. Fast, full range of difficulty, amazing artwork, outstanding cabinet and lighting. Did I say "fast".

I am absolutely blown away by this game! Hands down the best flow and lighting ever in a pinball machine. Steve Ritchie machines have always been fast and fun but this is by far his best work. Everyone who has seen and played this has been wowed by the 60 color changing led's. Each mode has a different color and makes them very unique in their own way. There still needS to be some minor tweaks to the code but I am very satisfied how it plays right out of the box.

Unbelievable, I own this game and it is a blast it keeps getting better and better the more I play very deep mode rule set on this one. Has to be one of the best machines I have played in my lifetime. It is sharp looking with a great artwork package and awesome mirrored back glass, the playfield has many satisfying shots with the best being the warp ramp shot, the toys look great, and VUK and return lane add more to the game then the pro, the laser projection is great addition, and the warp light just make this stand out and make the rest of my collection look really plain... My only complaint right now would be the omission of the ST theme music that would be killer, and the code is not quite complete, but for right out the box this machine is a winner. Stern you got it right, this machine will absolutely never leave my collection... This machine has a legitimate chance at cracking the top 5 IMO... Enjoy for those who own them and if you don't run out and get one or find a friend that has one cause you don't want to miss the experience of playing this fantastic game.

Update with 1.6.1 code - The game code is now complete IMO and is now an elite machine in the Stern collection. The machine is stunning, has a well integrated theme, is a blast to play with it fast flowing shots and is fairly deep, the only drawbacks is some of the modes feel like they are the same but really with 18 modes you are going to get some repetition, and the game is quite easy in standard audits and you get long ball times but this can be adjusted by making the machine more difficult, this is a standout game for Stern and is a top 5 machine overall...

Great out of the box and only going to get better

When we started it up for the first time, members of my family gasped at the light show. The game flows fast and smooth, and the shots are reasonable and satisfying. The light show is breathtaking, and the color schemes for the LEDs are going to set the standard for future machines. The music is strong and compelling, the voices powerful and mature, and the TV theme played at the end of the game comes as a delightful surprise. Nothing here not to love. This is the new high-water mark for pinball.

A solid effort featuring classic Steve Ritchie flow, decent rules, and some crazy-ass light shows.
