Star Trek is a 1979 pinball game developed by Bally. It was the first pinball machine based on the franchise of the same name. A second pinball machine of the same name was released in 1991 by Data East.


First versions of the backglass showed the crew of the Enterprise dressed in the uniforms from the original Star Trek TV series. This was changed early in the production to show them dressed in single-color clothing to fit with the Star Trek Hollywood movie that was coming out at the same time as the game. Gameplay include 2 Flippers, 3 Pop bumpers, one Kick-out hole, one 4-bank drop targets and a free ball return lane.[1]

The table has also made an appearance in Rammstein's "Amerika" music video.
