Very rarely are we actually handed a Star Trek game that one can hand the title of "Mediocre" to. Usually, they're really, really good (the old Sierra titles, like Judgement Rites, come to mind, or Deep Space Nine: The Fallen) or really, REALLY spectacular turds (Star Trek: Klingon Honor Guard).

Unfortunately, Shattered Universe is a prime example of a great idea fallen short by bad execution. The graphics are mediocre, though fine if you're on a small screen. The controls are decent but not great. The storyline is a great premise but sets up routinely boring missions, and the principle actors -- Walter Koenig as Chekov and George Takei as Sulu, merely phone in their roles instead of getting into them. Ouch.
