“I’ll take Star Trek for $500, Alex!”
A PC Edition would be nice. Will it be available also in germany? The german version of the same show is also here on tv!
Downloading it now. Will let everyone know how it turns out. Damn you Microsoft! Making me buy 500 credits when the add on is only 400 credits…
Is this a standalone game or do you have to own the original?
And is it only available outside of North America? I cant get it here in Winnipeg Canada?
Its pretty good, although I would prefer a mode that allowed you to skip through the questions quicker by maybe removing the ‘host’ and the player avatar interactions, they become very tedious very quickly and slow the game right down.
I have been a Star Trek fan since the 70’s and was getting up to around $125,000 and $250,000 before they got too difficult. I was using lifelines in the upper part of the middle section and onwards.
That’s just about the right difficulty level for me as it is not too difficult so I can’t make any headway at all and not to easy so it encourages me to play again and again.
It was interesting that when you get to the slightly harder questions I usually got out on one that I thought I knew the answer to. I think they have constructed the answer sets very well, so whereas the easy ones are really easy, the harder ones do have ‘trick’ answers in them.
You do need the main gave to play this though. I downloaded the Star Trek game for $8.50 (Australian) and nothing happened until i downloaded the main game for $15.50. If you get this watch out for the main game bundle offer that gives you a coupel fo extra bonus packs of questions, much better value in case you get bored or Trek questions, or want to play with non-trekkies.
Well, I won the £1 million, two out of three times…
I did find it pretty easy until the 250,000 & 500,000 questions and I got the million pound question wrong the last time I played.
Your average Star Trek fan would probably find it pretty challenging. Idiots like me who watch every episode over and over and over and over (and over) again shouldn’t find it too hard.
The game was £8 and the addon £4 – so not too bad. Great atmosphere – slightly odd aesthetic choice to have the vulcan in a gold uniform but I’m just nitpicking. I quite enjoyed being a smart arse, but I’m not sure I could play it with the family around.
They would kill me..
No PC version? No can use. [le sigh]
Looks like someone used a replace all to add target=”_blank ” to all tags and applied it to all instances of the character ‘a’
Finally we here in North America have something to gripe about :) I always wondered why people outside the US felt it necessary to gripe every time about video clips that won’t play there. Now I can’t even pay to play a cute ST trivia game on my PS3 :(
So, is Lt. Uhura the only “name” character you can be?
Looks cool, I’m hoping it comes to the states soon.
“Who Wants To Be A Target?” sounds like a REAL interesting show. Hunting humans on prime-time.
Jon1701 – Thanks for the great review for us NorAmericanos. That puts it in perspective and I do think I would do about that same as you. (“Over and over and over and over (and over) again.” Love it.)
sorry about weird html code in the article. it has been fixed
Anthony. You are a true Trek Geek.

Ha. Thanks. There are some pretty good touches too. The planets in the viewscreen are from the original non-cgi series. They are spot on. Also, one of your phone a friends is nomad!
Definitely a lot of care and attention went into it.
Disappointed by the lack of a PC version…
Oh look…more good games for the P….oh wait, nevermind, they conveniently once again left the PC out. To add to that, they ALSO conveniently left anyone in North America out as well. Why am I NOT surprised?
Nice! Now, when to we get it in the states? Or are they going to pull the biggest tease & rip off in history and not give it to us too?
