Good

Great game, but difficulty jumped up quickly

I thought it was a great game; however, I found the 8th mission to be too difficult (or frustrating) to beat. Some may enjoy the challenge, but it was way too much for my enjoyment. I would make it to the very end of the battle and then die. I don't want to play the same mission 100 times till I beat it especially when it takes 15-20 minutes.

I recommend the game to anyone even if it is just for the first 8 missions.

Great in Theory, Poor in Practice

I am relatively new to Star Trek, although I have fallen in love the Original Series. That being said, this game both impressed and disappointed me.
It stayed very true to the franchise (i.e. Feds benefit by talking first and shooting later) and the battle and navigation systems approached the difficulties of space flight and fight very nicely. I've played other games where traveling through emptiness has been long and cumbersome (LoZ:Wind Waker), but this game made it easy to get to the next goal and impossible to get lost in space.
Unfortunately the game failed to placate my impatient nature. Turning is incredibly slow and frustrating, it took a while for me to figure out how to recharge my shields, and before you can start blasting your opponent to bits you must spend forever shooting their shields. Phasers and photon torpedoes take a long time to charge while your opponent seems to be getting of two or three times as many shots.
All in all, this game is definitely worth a rent. If, after you try it out, you still want more then buy it, but not before.

This game should be a 7.5-8.0 depending on your love of star trek. Its a good game at full price. You can get it for $15 now. Worth a rental if you like Star Trek or space combat.
