I never played this game but I got it in a grab all box some where. I gave the game to my uncle and I have no idea what he did with it.

Thrift shop find! Very interesting because it was published in 1985, so it is unsullied by TNG. The questions can be very punishing - you can be currently watching the episode on the card and still not know the answer.

Star Trek Trivia is fun... but not much replay value, esp. with my friends. Cards can make interesting discussion topics though.

I remember many of the questions for this game being too esoteric for all but the most devoted fan. It also led me to conclude that the board really does make Trivial Pursuit more fun.

This game is for serious original series geeks only. Casual Trekkers will probably become frustrated by the level of detail in the questions. Essentially all of the questions come straight from or are referred to in the original 80 episodes. It is very simple to play and requires essentially no learning curve. Good for a night of simple entertainment with no strategy or complex rules systems. Anyone with a love for ST: TOS will find this game fun. Number of players doesn't adversely affect game play because it's a point gathering system. That said, it's a great 2-player game but from 2-6 players would have the same amount of fun.

Trivial Pursuit Clone, Only less fun. Not because of the questions or subject matter, but simply the mechanics of the whole "Golden Trivia" genre.

Never really got to play this much. No one was able to keep up with me. I would win games with scores 300 pts above everyone else.
