My impression so far (like, 5 levels in) is that I like this better than Marvel Puzzle Quest, though it is very similar. VERY SIMILAR. Except that it's Star Trek. Looks pretty and runs well on iOS 9.

I'm surprised that no one is talking about his game more. I like it much better than the others if its kind (but not a fan of the "always online" part) and strangely addicted to it.

Unfortunately all of the IAP is consumable. So I cannot make any purchases. I actually do like the core game. I think it's the first match 3 game where the AI actually uses the same board as you to make their moves.

I thought that was pretty cool.

I stumbled on to this game through a Fantasy Football site and was shocked that I hadn't heard about it before. I'm really liking it so far. Basically the Puzzle Quest formula, but with more to do.

You can fight space battles with your ship, battle against bad guys (picking your team out of your crew) and even against your own crew when you need to convince them of something. The variety is a nice change of pace, but I would have been happy enough with just the ship battles. The rest is icing.

There is a nice story element going on and you can run stories from both TOS and TNG crews. Winning battles gives you more crystals, coins, crew and ships.

My only draw backs for the game is the "online" method - this should only be for "versus" mode and the "grind" aspect. Each battle lets you play it four times, with a better reward each time. In truth I don't mind playing a mission over, but since it's story based, it's odd to see the same section of story four times in a row if you want the extra rewards. Yes, you can skip, but... You know...

One other gripe is that the story blocks move by too quickly. Often you can't finish reading a box before it's gone. Devs need to give an option to slow it down. I can imagine those who have English as a second language being very frustrated.

But overall I am a Trek and PQ fan so this game is perfect for me. Graphics are nice and I'm enjoying the game and story. I haven't hit anything yet that has made me consider an IAP, so that's nice so far. Nice game.

After the first episode, I could see how this game was really going to require IAP. No good way to collect coins, which you really need to get characters. I love Star Trek. I love match 3 games. But I just couldn't justify this one. Maybe in the future it will be balanced better, but I felt like I was hitting a huge paywall after some initial enjoyable gameplay.

It was mentioned that "there was no way to earn coins" other than IAP. That's not quite right. It's in the grind I mentioned above. You play the same mission a few times and you get coins. I've been able to do plenty with coins without IAP. But there is the grind.

On a 4S (at least on mine) it runs choppy. It begins well, but all the ships animations/lasers, etc. end up in hiccups and even freezes. iOS 7.1.2 JB, btw.
