Plus, the controls on this one are weak.

I enjoyed the game, but I agree that the controls sucked.

The "Phantom" is probably the most well rounded fighter, but the "Shrike" is by far my favorite. Too bad there weren`t more options as far as selection and balance.

Erm... only hostile forces own Starfighers in "Shattered Universe". The Starfleet of the normal dimension has no fighter vessels, only the Terran Empire in the mirror universe. The Klingons and Romulans also have them, but that's because they're hostile forces. That's why Sulu is shocked when the shuttlebay chief reports that "things have changed down here", and why the Mirror Sulu uses Klingon and Romulan fighters ONLY, because he is stuck on the USS Excelsior and therefore has no fighters of his own. "Shattered Universe" takes place in the mirror universe so that fighters can be explained, and it's done well.

As for the controls, you must be playing the Xbox version, because PlayStation2 controllers and controls for "Shattered Universe" are wonderful and far superior to the bricks that are attatched to the great lump of a nasty video game console that is sold by Microsoft.

Good ex. is the Arika Class Starship the carry mult. fighters. plus if you watched DS9 you could see them in action.

i think that should remake shattered universe so when you have all ranks you can have an option of ONE capital ship such as the miranda class or they could send their engineers onto that exelsior class starship(the level sight unseen where you investigate the ships that u usually blow up)  and when you get all ranks a screen comes up saying congratulations you have the commander rank we herby grant you this exelsior class starship. they could do a pach-up disc to re-write data on shattered universe owners disks to make the starship avalible. this starship will be available to choose on fighter select screen. (or just revamp the game)

Yes, but at the time "Shattered Universe" is set, there are no fighter craft for the Federation Starfleet. The fighters you mention come later with the threat of the Dominion. Good point, though.

true the fighters I pointed out are later in the timeline but in the Mirror Universe (which this game takes place. Fighters have beleive to exist during the time frame the game takes place. Plus in the Mirror Universe they went up against the Borg early on that did the Universe in which we see on TV.

Yeah... I was making reference, in my original post, to the fact that the hostile Terran Empire had fighters, but the peaceful Federation didn't, and that was why "Shattered Universe" is able to use fighters since it takes place in the mirror universe. Someone (I forget who) said that it was stupid putting fighters into the game since the Federation had no fighters at the time. Did the mirror universe really meet the Borg Collective earlier than "we" did?

Accord to the Mirror Sega by W.S. (better known as Captin James T. Kirk) they did. You see what happens when you come-in in the middle of a topic. I do know that it was sometime before TNG that the Fed. starting using fighters. When actually I don't know.

Sorry... the boards are being tempremental at the moment. I think your idea is a good one: flying the Starship Excelsior or one similar would be a great feature. Perhaps a cross between Bridge Commander and Shattered Universe could see you, instead of firing phasers, issuing the order to do so. To make things even more interesting, some of the crew (just because it's the Mirror Universe) could ignore your orders and start a mutiny for the Hell of it... it would add a layer of unexpected plot twists to the story. That, plus if you felt like it, you could take a fighter out for a spin and command the battles from outside the ship while still issuing orders like "Evasive manueveres!" or "Target that Romulan ship, now!" to your Starship. Interesting. Good thinking!

thats also a problem you can only shoot forword, but on the tv they can aim at and fire at an angle it wood be good if you aim a the ship and phasers shoot at it no matter where it is but only if they are in sight.

If you hit a ship with phaser beams, hold down X and then move your ship, you get the same effect from the TV shows where the phaser beam stays in the same place, concentrating on the shields or hull of your target. That, plus guided torpedoes mean you can fire and forget even if the target is behind you. See the Phantom Type-III for the best example of this. Still, I would prefer some kind of 360 degree phaser strip, although controlling it would be difficult, like the kind seen on the saucer of the NCC-1701-D.

Part of the reason way the Pasher only shoot foward is because fighters are might to be small and hard to hit. By add Phaser so you can hit a target that is behind you would make the fighter bigger and a easier target for the starship. Fighters depend more on their speed to hit targets.
