    Ow they admit they like Star Trek. Strange, most of the times non trek people don’t admit they watched an episode or movie or played a Star Trek game in my nearby surroundings Smile
    Then it has to be something good.

    I love it! Can’t quite get enough of it at the moment, being behind the Apple Arcade paywall I think helps as the game itself isn’t as hardcore free to play and loot crate dependent as other free titles!

    A: Need a subscription to a service to play.
    B: Apple.

    I might, if i was very tempted and in a good mood, be convinced to overlook point A....

    But i've been anti-apple since the Trinity (apple II, TRS80, Commodore PET) releases in 1977.

    Somehow everybody seems to remember the apple II being the best and most influential of that trinity while the Apple II and TRS-80 both were using relatively primitive integer BASICs for their first six months on the market while the PET had a full-featured BASIC with floating point support, a sophisticated screen editor, and lowercase letters, the last being a feature that the two competing platforms would not have for a few years.

    In fact by the time the Apple II and TRS-80 cought up with Commodore, Commodore was almost ready to release the ViC20 which was followed less than 2 years later by their legendary and world record holding C64.

    The PET layed the foundation of a dynasty of game changing and industry leading computers that ended (sadly) with the Amiga.

    But somehow a large portion of the world seems to insist on giving credit to Apple for things they actually didn't create or pioneered. There's the a lot of those but most irritating are perhaps the Apple 1 (initially a kitboard computer inspired by a demo of an Altair 8800 inspired computer which Wozniack attended) the ipod (an mp3 player they released in 2001 while the Diamond Rio PMP300-mp3-speler had been successfull since 1998 ) and ofcourse the ipad (a Tablet computer with touchscreen released in 2010 while there had been touchscreen tablet computers (even with MACos no less) for years before Jobs came up with his pad)

    But the main reason for my anti apple conviction is that apple was, is and will be the enemy of consumer freedom. If i buy a product, i want to own it, and do with it as i see fit. If you buy an Apple product, Apple owns it, and you may do with it ONLY what Apple deems fit. If you buy anything Apple, you know there is a product available that does exactly the same and more, for less money and without most of the restrictions Apple imposes on every Apple consumer's soul.

    So i hope the game will be released on any other platform than apple, otherwise i'm affraid i will not ever experience it myself.

    (apologies for what i see now inadvertantly turned into an anti apple rant. I shall endevour to prevent myself from doing these in the future)

    I am a self-confessed “Apple Tart” (as my husband puts it) - I have at least one of most things Apple offers product wise (including an Apple Pencil)! I think the only thing I don’t have is Apple TV, but I can access that via an app on the PlayStation.

    You are the same as I am in that matter. But here in Belgium we have a provider we’re you can buy apple products with your phone/internet subscription and you pay a monthly fee for 2 years and after that you can choose to exchange it with a newer model. Smile
    So now I have an iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch but still now MacBook.
    But it is true that it is not always cheap and sometimes not fair to non apple users to exclude them from some games they publish.
