Development History / Background:

Star Trek: Alien Domain is a Star Trek themed browser based strategy MMO developed and published by American game studio GameSamba in conjunction with CBS (the IP Holder for Star Trek). The game features traditional browser-based strategy elements, such as those found in games like Clash of Clans and Game of War, but with a Star Trek theme. GameSamba is looking to capitalize on the dedication of Star Trek fans. Star Trek: Alien Domain is one of the only Star Trek themed MMOs, aside from Star Trek Online. The game's first round of closed beta testing began in December, 2014. Third round of closed beta testing began on April 7, 2015, but at this point the game opened its doors to everyone.

    Horrible game run by even more horrible devs and moderators. NO respect or care of any kind for their community.

    Just goto their forums, you'll get all the info you need on why you should steer clear of anything these guys touch.

    This is a review of Star Trek: Alien Domain. I started this

    game on a 1 day old server. For the first week and a half everything was fine. The
    game seemed great. I spent 100$ when I
    started and as it was going well I spent another 200$ to keep up with another
    player. I was taking 1st place in boss fights and no one could kill
    my ship. They had contests at the start for who could level faster, get the
    most stars in elite stages ect… The contests ended 2 days early, right before I
    was about to take 1st. I submitted a ticket. They promised to take
    care of it but never did. The boss fights started getting bugged which slowed
    my progress. 4 days now they have not
    been working. Also they have purple boxes that are supposed to drop great loot.
    I have opened over 100 boxes and got nothing. The forums are full of people
    with similar complaints. The point being is DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON THIS GAME.
    They set this game up to make fast cash. They open a new server every couple
    days and forget the old servers. There is no maintenance. It is my guess that
    they will keep opening servers until people become aware of the scam and then
    they will sell the game to someone and it will die out Just like The Matrix
    Online. Even if the game is lucky enough to be picked up by someone who makes
    it awesome, right now it is not worth spending money on. You will get high
    level fast and then the server will brake and you will just end up with
    headaches. Don’t get suckered into spending cash unless you only plan on
    playing it for a couple weeks.

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Yeah these games are always pretty big money sinks and can get expensive very quickly.

    • keef

      You sunk $300 into it? lol

      Try Star Trek Online where you don't need to spend a penny if you don't want to.

    • WSSNW

      You say no one should spend any money on this game. Here's a thought....how about you stay away from extremes. Zero dollars or $300. Are those the only choices? What kind of special genius spends $300 on a game in beta. btw It's a year later and its still in beta.

    • DERP

      As long as idiots like you throw money at these people without properly letting them play out and get developed, then these problems will continue. Are you too stupid to realize that? Why should they do anything for anyone when people throw huge amounts of money at them right off the bat?

    • fcabanski

      Why did you spend money on it in the first place?

    • Gremm

      wow $300? You have no life.

  • steve mc

    This game is terrible. if u play as free its ok. But. DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON THIS GAME. it bugged and often crashes for 24 hours plus. I have regretted spending every dollar on this game. Support sucks, forums sucks.

  • Clifford H. Poyneer

    Thanks all, I am glad this sight allows both positive and negative feedback. I will continue to watch this game t to see if it either improves or disappears.

  • Jake

    To be honest about the game, yeah it is fun. Burns time.

    To say something but the company, they are incompetent.

    Every patch, is a game breaking patch. Then it takes them anywhere from 2 to 3 weeks to fix their bugs while you sit there and have to play a broken game.

    Since their last update the lag has been so horrid at the beginning of every hour, settles down, but then you come to the boss fight or system battle, and the game is almost unplayable for about 5 to 10 mins until the lag finally goes away.

    Their last update changed an officer that has been, for what the company claims, "A mistake" for over 6 months. They changed it after they allowed players to pump in credits to raising this officer. In return, they did not compensate for it.

    A few patches before the latest one, they were "lowering" damage in pvp to make pvp last longer. Right now, pvp is 1 to 5 seconds long. All they would have to do to make pvp longer is make ships tougher, or to change the mechanics of shields, armor, and durability. They have very little imagination in their coding. I have coded more advanced pvp in a text based game almost 20 years ago, than their 1 hit wonder code they have here. So in doing their change in that patch, they said that damage would be lowered by 30%. You know... no big deal. Their coding was not a 30% damage reduction, but more of a 30% damage prevention. No matter the level of your weapons, no matter the quality of your weapons, and no matter what ship they were on, it always did a max of 70% damage. If the person was almost dead, after someone else attacked them, and you came in, you did a max of 70% damage of whatever they had left. Would not kill them because there was always a 30% damage prevention.

    Their customer service, is horrible. You have to fight tooth and nail with them. Besides 2 people on the CS, Maggie and Applezhou, they are nothing more than a distraction. They know nothing about the game, their english is horrible. Each and every single one of them will ask for the same info over and over, even though, you already gave it to them 3 or 4 times. You do not get real results unless you threaten them with disputes through Paypal or your credit card company.

    Next off, they open new servers every week to every other week. All they do this for is a cash cow. Get players to start playing, it seems like so much fun at the start of the game, seems well put together, so you spend money. The new servers keeps old and unhappy players away from the new players that have been playing the game for 3 to 4 months and are so pissed off at this company.

    So, honest answer, yeah play the game, it is decent. Do not pay money. This company does not deserve the compensation of their lackluster game ridden with so many bugs, that take weeks to fix, if they ever fix them.

    This is my honest review of this game and this company. I also would think many would agree with my review of GS and STAD.

  • Ryan Kasa

    It won't load past 3% for me. Cannot play it.

    • revwillie

      worked for over a year, now I'm having the same won't load past 3% problem.

  • Victor

    The game sucks. There's no info and if you don't pay, you can barely play. Free game? I think not. This is just another money sucking attempt at creating an addictive game, but lacks the forethought to create even a single explanation of the goals. For example there's no info as to how to 'gain stars' even though you need them to complete one of the tasks given to you.

  • otis root

    I think it is fun but DO NOT spend money on it.

  • Michael Liu

    This is actually a mildly entertaining game. However, customer support from Samba leaves much to be desired. They treat me as if they are simply out to grab my money and communicating with them takes restating the problem multiple times - with them asking for details already given in the original customer service request. Furthermore, if they do rule in my favor- it is only after over half a dozen e-mails after they realize I am angry due to their lack of respect for someone who has invested in their product.

    There are bugs and spelling errors in the actual game - but these are easily overlooked. It is the customer service response that is rather disconcerting.

  • George R Davies

    This game i have been playing for 2 years.

    i was a game helper on their also.

    Advice is to stay away. so many bugs in the game they they never fix and all they do is keep introducing new items that you pay for that out does the previous one. There is no longer any balance left in the game and everyone leaves. On my server maybe max 50 players left. They also cannot merge servers so now have over 200. Gamesamba are the publisher for Ngames/ Game321 and have apparently zero control on what the devs do and never get told before hand what is happening if we get an update. when we get an update it comes with new bugs that wont be fixed.

    If you want some insight into what is going on now and how pissed off the whole community is then check out there forums and you will see tins of complaints. Which they never listen to either. You cant even contact support as they have never fixed the bugs in support ticket creation either. They bring out a ship and you pay for it and then change it after by nerfing it and making it useless. When we question before hand if they will nerf the current new ship "razor" so that we are not caught out again. That we wanted a promise before we bought it. They promise it wont be nerfed. we buy the ship and hey they nerf it. This happens all the time now and the only time they fix a bug is when its payment related. Never when we actually need a game bug fixed.

    lag is very bad and you don't get to watch half your battles. The game is dying and many now have a bad rep of CBS due to this game. I will never play a star trek game again because of this game.

    Ngames/Gamesamba are only keeping the game going to farm as much money as they can get. they expect you to top up thousands of dollars to get new items. all event items are over priced to take as much as they can from players before the game finally dies.

    This has been the worst gaming experience i have ever experienced in my 25 years. No support. very bad and rude customer service. more bugs than any other i have seen, that also never get fixed.

    Mods on forums employed by gamesamba keep feeding players lies from ngames and make out teh players are lying when we see things not working as they should in game.

    Stay away from this game

    Barely fun, more routine and boring with few fun parts - basically designed to drive you to insanity from boredom so that you pay to speed things up (definitely a cash grab). Also, no respect for fair game play from the dev's (they have a lazy attitude when it comes to even slowing down cheaters).
