Make no mistake this game does have its flaws. the biggest one being the complex controls which have your fingers dancing on the control like wayne sleap on speed. however as mentioned before if your into star trek you WILL like this game, the fact it spans all eras of the saga is a major boon giving you loads of ships to choose from including voyager and all incarnations of the enterprise.
the graphics are good and gameplay is relatively smooth. the game allows for those of us with a tactical nature by making you pick your fights carefully and giving you full control over your ships by being able to choose your impulse speed and giving you the option to divert power to various ship systems such as weapons, shields, engines etc.
all in all this is worth the asking price and the re-playability is high with the various multiplayer skirmishes.
