One thing I've noticed about Star Trek Chess is that it is a very physical as well as mental game. Because it is difficult to visualize all of the levels and angles involved, at times, opponents will get out of their chairs and line-up pieces by eye to get a better idea of the movements! This gives the game an entertaining aspect that is somewhere between Chess and Billiards! No matter what rules you use, I strongly recommend playing a Trek game at least once. It's not for everyone, granted, but some people will find it a lot more fun than simple Chess.
