Jan 20, 2016Star Trek: Timelines offers a lot of fun for mega-fans of the franchise, but understand that you won’t get as much out of it as you would want unless you’re willing to spend some money. And, once you start, it can become hard to resist the temptation to drop another $5 for another chance to unlock a rare character or ship...Of course, I wouldn’t put up with any of that if the game wasn’t so much fun.

Its a fun game for about a day, then the paywalls hit in and the game becomes a horrible cash grab. This game needs a better IAP model because I can't see this game surviving long with its current insanely expensive pay to play systems.
For the first few days, or should I say the first mission you'll have relatively few problems except maybe with ship battles, the starting crew is more or less sufficient for new free players to get through this phase, then after that the rather painfully obvious pay to play aspects immediately pop up because you'll need crew, lots of it - some missions will require very specific combinations of crew and without them, you cannot pass at all.
The crew also needs items, some of these items are especially difficult to get, leveling up crew you have to fuse 2 of the same crew members together, and obviously most of the 'free' crew you can't do this, only the better cards can be fused, assuming you get multiples in the first place.
The ship battles look great, but that becomes another whole new MESS of a problem, actually getting an new ship for free players is impossible, or 99% impossible. Overall, if you don't plan on spending money..avoid… Full Review »

It takes forever to get items your crew needs, while you get an abundance of items which are useless. Very frustrating to play. It's nothing more than a money-grab.… Full Review »
