Packed with pixel-y renditions of famous characters, Star Trek: Trexels II offers a lot for fans of the many TV shows to enjoy. It also may be the cutest Star Trek game you’ll ever play.
Building out your ship—and eventually a fleet—is the core experience. Starting with a Jem’Hadar fighter or the SS Botany Bay (Khan’s vessel from the classic Star Trek episode “Space Seed”), you’ll rearrange rooms and add extra ones that generate key resources.
Need research energy? Install long-range scanners, then assign someone to the new equipment. Or you can create rooms for training crew members, like a security station that boosts combat ability.
Your landing party will need that phaser prowess in away missions, which often pit beloved officers like Jadzia Dax and Harry Kim against hostile Borg or shuffling plant beasts. Other scenarios demand engineering skills to lower force fields, or diplomacy to deal with injured Klingons. You might even meet new crew members.
A multiplayer mode adds a third element no Trek fan can resist: PvP ship battles. With the game’s blended timelines, your Kirk-era Romulan Bird of Prey might face the USS Defiant in a tense, turn-based duel that’ll have both challengers on perpetual red alert.
The chance to pair characters from the franchise’s different incarnations promises all kinds of head-spinning possibilities. A ship whose crew includes Lt. Uhura, Chief O’Brien, Captain Janeway, and Ensign Crusher? Star Trek: Trexels II makes it a reality.
