I must say that I am grateful to see a version of Star Trek chess that better emulates the show. I need to get a tri-dimensional chess set so I can try it out. All the rules are so logically simple, yet still extend chess into the third dimension in an elegant fashion. This game looks better than the official version to me. It makes good use of the attack boards, while the other horribly limits them, IMO. I'm sure it deserves an excellent, but I'll wait until I've actually played it. LLS again invents a brilliant game!
