Nice Game 5/5
It is good game with Bugs did are working on them
The game doesn’t load 1/5
Can’t start the game after recent update. It gets stuck in localization and doesn’t go further no matter what I try to do. It’s sad, cause I played it since the launch.
A game is a game 5/5
By nickname is gone1
You can manage without paying it’s just a little bit harder to play but it’s a fun game
Rip off game 1/5
What kind of game has a seven day event that ends early to do maintenance?!?!?! Woke up to finish quest and I can’t log in. Developers will rip you off!!
Star Trek Command review 3/5
Fun game but wouldn’t let children play the game because there are players like tag (GOD) Mychew that are game bullies and make it so it’s not fun for anyone at all. Great game besides. It would be even better without all the massive bugs. So I would give it five stars, but because of the bugs and allowing players like Mychew to ruin the fun I can only reluctantly give it a three.
Can't Invite Friends 3/5
By Thaler AB
It's a fun time waster, but it's odd to find a multiplayer game that doesn't let you invite or play with friends. You will have to luck out on a friend randomly getting assigned to your server. There is no way to change your world server assignments.
Great concept but developers need a customer service dept 2/5
I have been playing this game for about 6 months and I find it very enjoyable. The game does have some major bugs that the developers claim they fixed or are working on it but yet no fixes for several issues even months later nor any kind of refund or discount to help off set losses in the game due to their bugs. The worse part is they are releasing updates with new events which sounds great and needs to happen but first they should sit down and make a list of every bug and get those fixed before adding more content. Additional they need to really add a few more nodes in higher levels of space after they fix these bugs.
Serious legal issues that Apple is ignoring. Uninstalled 1/5
If you can sell people tokens (which can’t be stolen/pirated), but sell people actual resources that can be stolen, you’ve set up a system that encourages theft in the hopes that people will pay more cash to replenish what they’ve lost.
Apple, why is this allowed? What’s wrong with you?
Now let’s get into why this is the antithesis of a game. Games are supposed to be fun. They’re not supposed to drain your wallet at an alarming rate, or overcharge for virtual items that don’t offer any bang whatsoever for your buck, or give you a panic attack in the morning because someone attacked you while you slept and stole resources you paid a ridiculous amount of actual cash for, all because you didn’t have any more 8-hour peace shields to get a good night’s sleep. This game fails in all these ways. You could go out and buy a VR headset for what you’d pay in a month at a mid-20’s level in this game. HALF of a garbage character that’s not even playable is NOT worth $100. And how many currencies does one game need? Parsteel, tritanium, dilithium, 2, 3, and 4 star ore, crystal, or gas, and an absurd amount of ship parts and components that just over complicate the whole thing. Plus this game is the opposite of Star Trek. It rewards big for stealing and pillaging other people’s stuff, but extremely poorly for diplomacy. But are there dailies? Sure, if you choose to play this game instead of using those 12 hours a day for something other than trying to mine 3 star materials when there aren’t enough nodes, or killing over 100 enemies for various dailies in lackluster fight scenes that don’t involve any skill or fun, all for loot boxes that reward garbage compared to the insane amount of resources you need to upgrade anything at level 25. Oh, and did I mention mining? Somehow they think this is fun. It’s not. Getting blown up 5 minutes after sitting on a node because people are desperate and they didn’t add enough of them is not fun. Sitting around and waiting to get one rather than blow someone up (because this is STAR TREK where you’re not supposed to be a jerk) is not fun. And making the cost of upgrading a station module TWICE what your generators can create is not fun. And the balancing is so off it’s just ridiculous. Why does an Envoy have more than 20 times the protected cargo of a north star?
I now wake up happier than I’ve been in months. No more 20 notifications saying, “ALERT: YOUR STATION HAS BEEN ATTACKED!” only to find the resources you’d been collecting for weeks are all gone. No more setting countless alarms and timers to make sure my mining ships are off a node in case some trigger-happy fool is gonna take you out. No more checking on your peace shield to make sure you don’t get robbed. No more frustration about how not-like-star-trek this whole thing is. Having to stop at every system between 2 points? That’s not how warp works. Making you pay dilithium for research and building non-warp-capable things? That’s not how dilithium works. And why is it that I can’t control a ship and, you know, have fun, but you have to initiate stupid obvious commands like “repair ship”? It’s there and it’s broken. Seriously?
Don’t install this. As much as you’d like to think you’ll get somewhere without paying a couple thousand dollars a year, you won’t. This game is greed and stupidity at its finest, and an insult to Trek. Gene Roddenberry would be rolling in his grave if he knew this thievery was attached to his legacy. And honestly, I’ve never seen a company overestimate the value of something so absurdly. $200 for “Carol,” who, like everything else, is unplayable and dull? I could hire an actual person that’ll provide a lot more fun for a lot less than that.
Broken + Pay Walls = Delete APP 1/5
By run away from this one fast
The app crashes constantly. PvP battles are not mutual, so you will be destroyed by stronger players often and have to wait long periods of time to repair your ships. PvP is completely unbalanced. You will hit pay walls. RUN AWAY FOR YOUR WALLET’S SAKE!!!! The mining requirements are ridiculous considering you can only convert small amounts of materials every 9 hours. All of those materials are needed to upgrade both your station and your ships, so you must pay to advance or waste literally months mining and converting to slowly hit the next level. Really poor development of a game that had potential
A different approach to Star Trek 4/5
By Paul iP2
I’ve been a Trek fan since the 60s. This game challenges some of my perceptions of those involved and the war angle is challenging for some. Still addictive and it’s had its difficulties. Progress continues as this update shows.
Hoping it works well.
Game is glitchy and buggy 2/5
Doesn’t always give the right awards
And sometimes just kicks you out
Gameplay okay, player base trash, no server switching 1/5
I really wanted to like this game. I played it straight for months after release. It has a serious flaw, and that is, or can be the player base. This game forces you onto a server without the ability to change. You are unable to log on with friends. And while pvp is a part of most online games, you may get stuck with a server where you simply can not level because you are constantly being destroyed. You can’t protect even meager amounts of your stored resources without spending a ton of money and tying yourself to a timer so you can reset your shields. Who wants to be chained to a friggin GAME? The pvp is based on the biggest fish wins concept with some limits, but generally the bigger fish are too high a level for you to mount any adequate defense. That being said, It is possible to get a server that has a great player base. I know from friends and experience (I also have an android version). Some servers have player self policing and set up in game etiquette so everyone can get higher levels, then you can have fun epic fleet battles. But be prepared to have a crappy chaotic “every-man-for-himself” community with no hope of moving away from it. If you do play; Do not spend money on this game until you are sure what kind of player community you have. You will not really know until around level 19. That is a fairly easy level to get without spending. Lastly, with the forced pvp based on piracy, this game has very little feel as part of a Star Trek universe. It’s more like Firefly with minor content that has pictures of ST characters. To evaluate it yourself, try Chromebook, Bluestacks or an old droid phone and play both platforms. You’ll see what I mean. If server swap and better pvp rules are ever created, I’ll try again and change the rating accordingly. However for now, as far as iOS servers are concerned, I don’t recommend this game as fun.
Pay to play 1/5
I spent $100 dollars and can not complete. Game is is for rich. Avoid at all costs
Horrible support 1/5
The game is neat could be improved but I doubt they will. What ruins the game is their customer support. If the game glitches out and you lose everything that you were grinding their response is that’s too bad but please note we will not fix it. I sent them in screenshots that still no good. Messaged for 3 days with all of them saying too bad we don’t reimburse if the game glitches so just grind it again..... it took me three days your game took it away now I’m supposed to grind again fir 3 days????? And hope it doesn’t have another issue. But oh wait you know your game is buggy and you suggest players play through the buggy game? But you don’t intend to fix the game??? There is no continuity with support they don’t fix your problem but every day your talking to a new person (all on your original post). That new person only reads your last message so you get to start all over again. For 5 days I argued about losing everything I had saved (which is important for the game play if you want to keep up with everyone else do you can at least protect yourself) they told me they do not fix those problems and cannot help though they can see that the game glitched on me for 2 straight days.... but they won’t fix the issue. If you want a game that will piss you off then play this one! If you’d like to play a pointless game with 90% chances to experience glitches that will make you fall further behind everyone else then look no further this is the game!!!! If you like throwing your money away and them saying they’ll reimburse that and then say oh wait no we can’t reimburse just try a new purchase instead.... yes this game will flush your money right down the toilet for you!!!!!
What a shame! 1/5
I’ll add to the chorus of people who are let down by this game. For the first week I was enamored by the number of quests, variety of tasks, and the size of the map. I even spent about $20 on some upgrades. But once PVP becomes a factor, the game becomes a slog and falls victim to paying players. Low level characters with insanely powerful ships that destroy you for fun. The devs are well within their right to cater to their high-paying customers but eventually the server will just be filled with griefers and there won’t be any suckers to prey on. Right now I’m losing interest as my quest log piles up and I can’t mine materials thanks to griefing. So much potential here.
Wow!!! 🤩 5/5
I love this game!!! I waited and waited and waited until I finally downloaded after the like seeing billionth ad! Sorry I took so long but what an awesome opening week!
Great game but you have glitches 4/5
Your battle reports in email will not delete.
You don’t listen to
Your customers but other than that it’s an ok game
By robert geistel
Awesome game but time consuming
This is a fairly good game and I enjoy playing it. You get to build and use many different ships from the Star Trek universe. My biggest complaint is how unbalanced it is. The Jellyfish ship, which you can get fairly early in the game is so OP that is you have it, you’re basically unbeatable. Once your base is level 15 or higher you’re almost required to constantly have a shield up for your base or they can attack your base as often is they want. I’ve gotten hit over 20 times before within a 2 hour window that I wasn’t playing the game.
If they either nerfed the Jellyfish, or made it a later game ship, or put limits on the number of times someone can attack your base then I would give it a higher rating but right now as enjoyable as it can be to play, this is very much a pay-to-win game right now.
This game is pretty fun, especially for a Star Trek fan.
Star Trek Fleet Command 5/5
Great game. Lots to do.... building, research, battles and missions. Highly recommended, even ftp
I screwed up my game by building too many duplicate ships.
I need a way to scrap some.
Had no idea there was a limit per level.
Other than that, I love this game and recruit people all the time
Buggy Mess will give you cancer 1/5
This game is crawling with bugs. You will have to restart your client every 5-10 minutes due to visual glitches. Things you do will not be saved, such as shields to prevent other players from taking your stuff. Even if the shields do go up, sometimes others can attack through them as though they were never there. Save both your time and money and play anything else.
Fix free problems 4/5
New problems with a lot of people can’t open the free chests and recruiting officers and can’t refine materials... why should I spend money on a game that doesn’t work properly?
Don’t download 1/5
Still buggy, support doesn’t care, don’t spend money here. They will ignore you, ban you, or find ways to further take your money. Don’t start playing if you don’t have an addiction problem and a fat wallet. I don’t understand how they even have a 4 star rating, someone needs to review the reviews I smell a scandal.
Good game but... 5/5
By Justa waffle
I think you should be able to have two things upgrading of coarse not when you start but later you can buy like a different builder to you can upgrade or build two different things at a time because it’s starts taking a long to to upgrade or build.
Pay to win 1/5
Soon as you hit a level to do pvp(15 I think it is), expect same level players with bought for ships twice your level to come around and blow you up and steal your cargo. Mining is required if you don't pay for it but you will die everytime you try to mine and have your cargo stolen. Makes it very frustrating to progress.
Starts out fun and then it’s all about the Benjamin’s 2/5
Loved this game when it came out, interactive universe and lots of missions. and it seemed to have a balanced pay vs grinding it out you of play. But once they start the missions where people can buy the stronger ships and upgrade immediately, it was all downhill from there. I don’t mind spending some money on a a good game, and I did enough to keep the game flowing. But when I started getting attacked from people with ships that were my same level but with triple the hit points, that was kind of shady. And then there was some type of loophole that allowed to be attacked when your peace shield was up. Read a lot of the other reviews, you need to pump some serious cash into this game to even compete. Save your money and go find a game that doesn't cater to the all mighty dollar .
Great game! 4/5
Very captivating, but it does take up a lot of your time. Not at all a quick potty game! Best part of the game is if you can find a great alliance to work with. Honestly makes the game MUCH more enjoyable, especially when you realize how much you have to grind.
Fun for a while. 2/5
I’ve played this game for quite some time and in the beginning, it's fun and challenging. It's fairly fast-paced moving through the levels and acquiring new ships and advancing the crews of those ships.
Then you hit what I call the pay to play levels. This seems to be around levels 23 to 24. You have to have large amounts of resources to do anything and if you haven't spent cash the people that have will take almost everything from you. It takes days to upgrade your station and ships so unless you can afford to buy peace shields to stay in a constant bubble the people with large bank accounts will take everything from you.
I have push notifications turned on but don't get alerted that my station is under attack until well after everything has been taken. The developers constantly promise this will be fixed...it never has been. I have a theory that people that spend big bucks get freebee attacks on players that don't spend much. This is just a theory but seems odd that after I paid for an upgraded ship I received alerts immediately upon being attacked. Since I haven't bought anything recently I don't get notified until I'm cleaned out.
Enjoy the game, it's fun for a while.
By Ox Head 13
My father went in to hospice home couple weeks back. I started playing this game from adds I saw. It helped pass time while sitting waiting for my father to go to heaven. Which he did
Aug 9 2019 at age 84. It’s been a great distraction from my feeling down. Good interactive game.
Level 20 player 4/5
The game is fun to play. It cannot get 5 stars however. To many glitches in the game. Progress in the game stalls at level 20 do to unrealistic game requirements. Developers need to fix know problems in the game or people will just leave the game around this level of play
Good game but not perfect 4/5
I grew up watching Star Trek original series and everything that followed. This game certainly hit the mark for me. The mix of strategy and just plain grinding is good. However like all games there is room for approvements. Further work on glitches would make the experience better. However a great game that I love to play. Thanks Scopely!
Great game 5/5
I’m a long time Star Trek fan so this game is cool
The game is well laid out and has a lot of content to go through to keep you interested. Only reason it’s not a 5 star is the bugs and glitches. I don’t know how they work their quality control, but some of the events are problematic when first added in. Also your system can get bogged down with the sheer amount of notifications going on.
Addictive, fun, talk w people from all over 5/5
Addictive, fun, talk w people from all over
Amazing Game! 5/5
Simply put it is the best game of this type I have ever played. I’m 43 and have been a hobby gamer since the NES was new.
Trek Fans will enjoy 5/5
By Punn Farr
A good balanced game, with plenty of references that fans will recognize
Not worth the time worst experience you will have 1/5
By OG DOME KANOBI
Don’t even download this you will hate Star Trek after playing it worst game you can have on here if you could call it a game
Brings out the worst in people 1/5
The game is very addictive. While the solo game play is great fun, the PvP features makes this game a pain. The loose agreed upon rules are not enforced by the developer and rogue players are always breaking them. Just like in real life, give someone unfettered access to a gun and it will be abused.
The chats are choke full of foul language mostly R rated. I don’t think Roddenberry had this in mind when he created Star Trek.
There should be away to turn off the PvP features and just play against the computer.
You will regret playing this game 1/5
This game is designed only for pay to play, after the first couple of cheap packs that come available for purchase for the lesser amounts, the pack amounts are 100 a piece, and for a faction ship the packs only give you enough material for half a ship, so you have to spend 200 dollars to buy a faction ship, it is such a ripoff. Also game malfunctions and all the millions of rss you buy and keep stored in ur base gets raided and taken by other players due to game malfunctioning and base shields falling off for no reason, and the 200 dollars you just paid for gets taken and you try contact support to get game fixed and get ur stuff back, they tell you to pretty much stick it, will not help you even though it’s their game that malfunctioned. It’s all about the almighty dollar. Run from this game as fast as you can!
FarmVille in space. No thanks. 1/5
By Dr Kilovolt
Seriously, it’s just like all the other FarmVille clones. I’ll pass.
A pay-to-win nightmare 1/5
Scopely took all the best aspects of Gene Roddenberry’s vision out and replaced it with a pay-to-win nightmare full of grieving and bullies.
Be prepared to spend $200 to $250 a month if you want to compete. If you do buy resources you also have to buy shields to prevent your purchases from being stolen.
Hit a wall at level 20 1/5
Early game is fun lots to do, quick growth. But then along come the special events, take the swarm one, the reward is a new ship that makes it easy to kill swarm ships, but oh, you have to kill 100’s of swarmships to get the ship! And you get stuck unable to do the missions unless your level 28 or higher, but it takes years to upgrade your station and research to that level unless you spend 1,000’s of real dollars to speed up everything.
My mission queue is completely full of missions I cant complete. Until I am many many levels higher
Have fun and plan deleting the game around level 20
By Siberian Dragon 11
Absolutely amazing game I advise anyone who reads this to download it
Great mechanics, bad design 1/5
Edit3: Epic fail on the latest event/update. The entire game is broken now.
Edit2: look at the recent reviews. The five star ones obviously have not even played the game. Every other review is one star. There are just so many bugs. I will admit that the new faction and alliance menus are great looking. But it is just slapping a pretty face on something that is broken to the core. Anything they try to do introduces ten new bugs. The developers have to start over with fresh code before it completely falls apart. I am beginning to turn away from playing the game. I find my ships constantly destroyed because of game breaking bugs. I can live with another player killing me since it is a pvp game. Being killed almost every day by a broken game is unacceptable.
Edit: the game is basically falling apart. There are so many people crammed into the server. It is no doubt Scopely's attempt to make it more competitive. All it is doing is making the servers lag and crash constantly. A quarter of the mining nodes are now broken (it is a bug related to changing target just before starting to mine - amplified by the tons of lag). Many times when you attack a target, your ship just stops at the enemy and doesn't do anything. And now a new bug is popping up more and more where you get stuck in incorrect warp locations and then are trapped for ten minutes when only going to an adjacent system. If you do not recall at your first chance, or stop where you are, it keeps adding an extra two minutes to your warp time (cumulative).
The Good: This game has tons of content. Tons and tons and tons. Bordering on maybe too much to do. Any completionist out there would go crazy. The setting is great. I do not I have seen a city builder in the style of space exploration before.
The Bad: As with any city builder, you need boatloads of resources to advance. Absolutely everything is lootbox based. As some others have commented, you cannot even refine materials, you use raw materials to open a loot box with a chance at refined materials. On top of that, every button you click loads a menu. They need to study other city builders and see that dropdown menus and popups would seriously streamline the UI.
The Ugly: PVP is an absolutely mess. Griefers can basically attack at all times. There needs to either be a cooldown on pvp attacking or have pvp combat as a timed event. Let's say each round becomes 5 seconds. Precombat would happen, wait 5 seconds, round 1 damage would be distributed, wait 5 seconds, round 2, etc. This would also allow for other ships entering the combat. Right now it is called Fleet Command, but you can do single ship combat.
Seems legit but soo many hackers 2/5
Don’t spend money. Hackers are dominating and will take everything you’ve earned. Cool storyline, near-impossible odds to achieve anything cool. Game is still in development despite full rollout.
Pure rip off 1/5
I’m certain that 80% of these reviews are generated at some bot farm. Do not play. Complete rip off. Scopley will take your money and then tell you to kick rocks.
