Very cool cannon creature inclusion. Hope to see more iconic creatures debuts as cannon fodder. That's all I ever wanted: "star trek shooting gallery online"

I agree with this. Rename it The Mine Trap

It looks liek fun, and my guess is the Rombies are in fact Copper Vampires.

Yes, I saw that. You were replying to his post, and I was replying to your post. You didnt think that your post was somehow the end of the conversation that no one else could reply to did you? If so, welcome to the internet

"The Man Trap" was a very interesting episode. As a matter of science-fiction movie fact, the salt creature design was inspired by H.G. Wells' Morlocks from "The Time Machine".

I am a little surprised to find "Star Trek" fans who do not know about "Star Trek" and science fiction history.

I bet you don't know how "Transformers: The Movie" (1986) is connected to "War of the Worlds" (1938) and "Star Trek" (1960s).

Sorry, I expected something a bit more than resurrecting 'campy' creatures like vampires and zombies. At least Morlocks were outright cannibals (farming humanoids for food), a bit different than creatures wandering the universe and removing nutrients/organs from chance encounters with other creatures.

*shrugs*

Where is your imagination? "Star Trek" is all about going beyond the limitations of humanity. Many of "Star Trek's" episodes cover talking dogs, fish, cats, lizards, etc... What is the difference between a floating jelly fish and a floating Abraham Lincoln?

*shrugs*

Science-fiction begins with science facts, and then it stretches them into new realms of 'possibilities'.

If you watch science-fiction movies created prior to 2000s, you will find that writers had a better grasp on experimenting with new ideas. Current Hollywood is afraid to do new things, so they are stuck on remakes and reboots.

Cryptic is bringing in those neat concepts, which belonged to "Star Trek" history. As long as they keep them true to form, I have absolutely no problem with the species being added.

It's a nifty little nod to Trek nerds, and I approve.

I think a few people here need to take off their "I'm an elite, discerning gamer because I bash everything" beer goggles and appreciate things for what they are.

Time to enlist Abraham Lincoln- vampire hunter into the Federation, eh ?



...But since these creatures are original Trek canon I'll remove my objection to them. I'm still laughing at them tho.

Yeah, I agree that some concepts are cheesy.
