Star Trek: Shattered Universe

The good:

- All the authentic ships of the Star Trek universe.
- Six diverse fighter craft to control.
- The voices of George Takei (Sulu) and Walter Koenig (Chekov).
- Solid, clear and smooth graphics.
- Great sound effects and half-decent music.
- The villians and locations from the original Star Trek TV series.

The bad:

- Can get repetative.
- Some infuriatingly difficult missions.
- Cutscene graphics make Sulu and Chekov look strange.
- No multiplayer.
