This was the first pinball I ever purchased over 20 years ago as a thank you gift to my brother.  It provided our family with many years of entertainment until he sold it recently.  I took on this project to build a faithful recreation of the actual look, feel, and game play of that table.  I hope it provides as much enjoyment for you as it did for us.


This has a few minor enhancements from the version originally released at vpinball.com.

v10.6 required

What's New in Version 2.1.1   See changelog


A few physics modifications including:

- improved rubber dampeners for more lively ball on rubbers

- improved flipper rubberizer for more realistic flipper play

Adjusted playfield disablelighting to prevent unintentional blinding

Best 1979 Star Trek release yet. The bounciness is worlds more realistic than previous revisions. Amazing job, Rothbauerw. :D



  • Lighting is beautiful. No desire to change it for my cab
  • Physics are nearly perfect (see "con"). The ball bounces off the targets like my in-home EM and the ball hops upwards if they reset while the ball is on top, without any "visual glitching"
  • Inclination is best described as "the just-right porridge"


  • Plunger is very strong relative to other games I play. May pipe it down a notch
    • Note: This can vary from cab to cab depending on Virtuapin Controller or plunger configuration


Personal "Winner's Tips" to help you lose friends:

  • Nudge more sparingly when it comes to the horizontal game
  • Plunge for the kicker on ball 1, then B or A rollovers after (unless B or A are complete)
  • Shooting the left-hand bonus multiplier targets from the left flipper
    • Aim for the right-hand standup (L-L-Y) targets since they're in "riccochet range" of the bonus targets. Much safer than hitting them directly (led to drains in my experience)
  • Once the right-hand L-L-Y standups have been cleared, shoot for "Time Warp" (right flank) to score your bonus. If you've been shooting L-L-Y from the left flipper, chances are your multiplier has been raised and your bonus is substantial

I'm probably the only person in the world who has more fun on this table than on ST Next Gen.


Thank You mate.

Stunning work yet again. Playing this makes me feel like I'm actually playing a real machine in a remote way. The lighting, ball physics, attention to detail in modeling, texturing, the electronic sounds, physical sound samples all combine to make a pretty believable picture. Thank you guys. The generosity is appreciated greatly.
