Photos, press release, edition comparisons and much more!

One of the things that�s always bugged me about pinball sites � and indeed sites in every industry � is the tendency to provide product photos barely larger than a thumbnail. How am I supposed to see anything with those? For a large, detailed product like a pinball, resolution is what�s important � so give me a photo I can study and sink my teeth into!

And here they are for Stern�s brand new Star Trek pinball, beginning with overviews of the three different editions. On the left is the Pro �Starfleet� model, the center is Premium �Vengeance�, and on the right is the Limited Edition �Enterprise�. These photos may still look like thumbnails... but click a couple of times and ye shall receive incredible resolution!

Next, we have the two different versions of the playfield � on the left with plastic ramps is the Pro playfield, and the right one with chrome wireforms is shared by both the Premium and Limited Edition models.

Teaser video for the newest game by famed designer Steve Ritchie!

Earlier today, Stern Pinball officially announced their latest game, Star Trek, through a teaser video posted on YouTube. This new machine is based on the �rebooted� series of movies, and covers both �Star Trek� and �Star Trek Into Darkness�. Check it out below!

Now, as of this moment high-resolution photos and feature details simply haven�t been published yet, so what I�ve done for now is stitch together nine of the long pans as seen in the video, to give you a closer (and non-moving) look at artwork and playfield details. Remember to click on the thumbnail to enlarge, and then again to see the original full-resolution image!

Here are the three cabinet versions, from left to right: Pro, Premium, and Limited Edition. Sorry that they're cut off, but in the video they fade between shots. (Update: improved cabinet photos can be seen in this post.)
