Internet: the Final Frontier.

Unfortunately, the popular Star Trek slots will not be exploring this brave new world just yet.

The Star Trek series by WMS are some of the most innovative and engrossing slots experiences that a land-based casino can provide…especially for those of us more familiar with Tricorders than we are with Texas Hold’em.

Of course, the power of the fans and the franchise could elevate even a mediocre slot machine, but WMS has far more to offer than simply slapping the Star Trek name on a slot machine and calling it a day.

For one thing, there’s “Adaptive Gaming”. Basically, you can save your progress and log back in later with all of your achievements (i.e., Starfleet Medals) still in the system. Though video games have had this ability for decades, it’s a radical idea in the slots world.

For another thing, there isn’t just one Star Trek slot machine — there’s five so far, and no end in sight! And each one has a wealth of unique bonus features and “Win Warp” features.

That’s right, “Win Warp”. Every single time you make a winning combination, something happens. Something wonderful (no wait, that’s “2010”, sorry). Sometimes the Enterprise will fly by and give you new combinations. Sometimes a crew member will appear to multiply your line wins. There are four unique Win Warp Features in each episode!

Well, the land-based slots may have won this round, but we have an entire universe of sci-fi themed slots to strike back. Even if you happen to be playing from the planet US!
