5 Not as bad as all thatdigitalmaverick | 30/07/2008 | See all digitalmaverick's reviews (10)This game has been widely panned as being a poor game with gameplay modelled on Risk (the boardgame). Indeed some reviewers have said how poor the game is here on this site. However, I would like to argue that it is not at all as bad as it is made out to be. I owe so much to this game, because as a Trek-mad dad I have been trying to introduce my 11 year old son (an avid gamer, he's no novice) to the delights of the mythology of Star Trek for years to little avail... until I bought this game. My son is now a FULLY confessed Trekkie and I attribute this to him enjoying this game so much. Through the game he has learned about ships (that he now spots in episodes he watches) and races which has all helped his understanding of the TV show. So all in all, I can't praise this game highly enough for fulfilling my dream of turning my son into a Trekkie!
