Think of it as a series of mini games Pros:- It’s cheap.- Play with different ships from different eras.- Visuals and sound effects are decent for PS2. Explosions are quite satisfying.- Provides skirmish (instant action), story, and multiplayer modes.- A stripped down version of Starfleet Command where you can more easily:a. fire photon torpoedoes and phasers.b. drop mines.c. beam away teams to capture enemy ships.d. manage energy use between weapons, engines, sensors, etc.- I was dubious about this game being advertised as an “arcade” version of Starfleet Command. But I think they managed to simplify things sufficiently well so the balance came out right- ie it wasn’t like playing a Xevious-like top-down shooter.Cons:- Story mode has some very very very very frustrating levels involving flying through rings with a time limit. It must have taken me 2 dozen tries to get through…

I was hoping for more of a Trek experiance, but I have to say that it’s been enjoyable so far.The gameplay is a top-down perspective on the battles, with each mission being a chapter in a much larger campaign. Missions include objectives such as destroy all enemy, recon missions, escort and rescue missions. Each campaign takes place in a different Trek era, from ‘Enterprise’ all the way to ‘Voyager’ (and the mysterious ‘Soverign’ campaign). You get a choice of two different weapons, 2 alternate functions (such as tractor beam, mines) and the ability to switch power around, diverting energy from one system to another, such as weapons, shields and engines. All the enemies from each series are present, from the Xindi to the ever-fave Klingons.As far as graphics go, the effects are pretty but the scenery is bland. Since its a space-battle game only,…
