To put it in more detail:
  • The scaling is perfect!
  • Working Jeffries Tubes!
  • Your ship NPCs are dressed appropriately!
  • Shuttered windows for cannon lawyers and the ability to see space for everyone else!
  • Certain rooms suck as the Transporter Room and Engineering are exact replica's (the Sick bay, while a little off, is as close as they could get it!).
  • A "F" Type shuttle and pet (was so not expecting this).
  • 3 new costume types fore the period! (My only complaint is Klingons really need some classic TOS love for their outfits)
  • A Type 2 phaser that can be given to all your crew immediately instead of having to spam the same feature series episode over and over and over again! ( It is SLIGHTLY less powerful than the feature series gun).
  • Old school bridge sounds and abient noise in the appropriate places. You will actually feel like your on the Enterprise. I was just waiting for the computer to ask for someone to report to something, the sounds were just that good.

Besides for some really anal retentive nitpicking from cannon lawyers, I can find nothing really wrong with this package and for 1400 Atari tokens (about 15 dollars worth), you are not going to get a better buy for money than this package.
The Enterprise package comes with an entire star ship and it still does not measure up to this value pack.




That all being said I merely have one request, one tiny little favor to ask to make this set perfect:
  • ADD A "BEAM OUT" BUTTON TO THE TRANSPORTER ROOM!
Actually, they need a beam out button for all transporter pads in the game (like the one in Memory Alpha), including the ones in space stations and on ships, but I would kill for this feature on the TOS transporter.

I almost cried when I realized I could not beam out from this area on my ship and had to go back up to my bridge to leave my ... bridge... which seems a tad awkward.
I am very impress with the new bridge and interior pack. Cryptic did an awesome job. They should not make the interior so that you only get it if you pick the bridge. I do wish the elevator actually worked instead of having to use loading screens. It should me one big map.

Is it wrong to fall in love with an add-on to a video game!?

I'm not one for using OMG... but if there was ever a time, this is it.

Working Jeffries tubes is a genius touch, and using the 'conference room' instead of the ready room... superb.

The feel is perfect in my opinion... and am I getting ahead of myself of does the doctor in sick-bay look suspiciously well poised to become a contact for healing injuries!?

It is near perfect - my only complaint is the the NPC officers on the bridge are still in the "Standard Fed NPC" uniform instead of the TOS one, but that can be fixed with more bridge officers in uniform (too bad you only get 4 when you fly the ship at the right level, need at least 2 more to fill out the positions).

Though, I must say I actually said "This is SO AWESOME" while walking around... I'm such a nerd

Here's to hoping they make an era appropriate shuttle bay when it's put in game as well.


Also, love the plaque on the bridge.

Are you sure? All of my NPC's were in TOS uniforms.

Those are your BO that is why they are not in TOS uniforms. If you put them in TOS uniforms then they will have them.

Yes, I am loving this pack!!!! Very cool! The only thing that would make it better is, having the ability to swap your BO's into TOS uniforms but still be able to keep another uniform.

Another little problem is, I took the Type F pet out of my Shuttle craft, thinking I could simply use it on my ship, but it will not let me! Now, when I try to put it back in the shuttle, it won't allow me! Now what do i do with it?

A pity we can't go to the Hanger deck and actually see said shuttle. One day!

Oh, and how good did it feel to sit on the bridge, looking over his shoulder at the view screen? Now if we only got the ability to travel while on the bridge..... perfect would be achieved!

Just keep the little shuttle in your inventory. You can then use it to get the pet to follow you.
