This game is slightly on the difficult side when it comes to gameplay, however it really brings Star Trek to life.
It is really frustrating to use the strategy map to give orders. The mouse is very bad at responding.
It is kind of cheesy when an enemy ship is about to blow up an they say "This is no challenge. Tell me where I can find an opponent worthy of my skill."
The game claims to have "every ship from the movies and TV series" but there are some huge gaps: What happened to the Scimitar from Star Trek Nemesis?, What happened to the Valdore type warbirds? and Why does NX-01 Enterprise look so different from the TV series?
The graphics are good, and the effects are spectacular. However it is funny when your ship is covered in laser burns, venting gases, has sections of hull missing, and is only at 20% damage. All in all, it is a very good game, with a few problems that don't cause a real problem, but a quite annoying.
Note: I strongly recommend that you get the free "Ultimate Universe" mod. The only problem that it doesn't fix is that the ships still do the "This is no challenge..." script line.
