Star Trek Lower Decks Mobile is a single-player offline simulation idle game, which is brought to you by Canadian game developers East Side Games Studio. This game has an average rating of 4.5-stars and has over 100k+ downloads. Star Trek Lower Decks Mobile gives you a chance to retell classic Star Trek stories. The game begins with a series of conversations between the characters of the Star Trek Crew. The gameplay is divided into episodes that have exciting simulated missions. Once you have completed your tasks for the given episode, the episode will end, and you would have earned yourselves some rewards!
Tip #1 – Merit Points
Your Merit Points are based on your performance in the drills. Merit Points are indicated by a Blue Starfleet Insignia. You are scored against other crews by these Merit Points. So, get as many as you can! When a Simulation is automated, it will collect Merit Points even when you are away from the game!
Tip #2 – Holo-Crew
You can also spend your Merit Points on a Simulated Crew (aka Holo-Crew) to help you and your teammates. You might be wondering why you should sacrifice your hard-earned Points. But don’t worry. This is going to generate you more Points in return because of your efficiency, i.e., these points are exponential in nature! Each new Holo-Crew member takes up to 8 Merit Points initially but takes up more later in the game. You can switch between adding single or multiple Holo-Crew with the X1 and MAX buttons.
Note: At the end of each episode, your Holo-Crew is reset. However, any upgrades to your Simulations or characters are permanent.
Tip #3 – In-Game Currencies
You will gain rewards in the form of Merit Points, Latinum, and Dilithium. These are your currencies too. You can claim rewards after you have completed the tasks given to you.
Tip #4 – Unlock New Characters
There are Epic and Common characters in Star Trek Lower Decks Mobile. You can unlock up to 41 new characters in the game by buying various Crates, which will cost you in Latinum. For example, I got Stevens as a permanent upgrade from my purchase mission of Gold Crates. He is assigned to collect all the Merit Points on behalf of the main crew. You can also upgrade your characters so that work can happen more efficiently.
Tip #5 – Simulation – The Essence of Star Trek Lower Decks Mobile
In Star Trek Lower Decks Mobile, Simulations are the key areas where the production of different in-game elements happens. With each episode you play and complete, you can unlock new Simulations. There are a total of 11 Simulations Collections that you can get hold of. You can unlock simulations like Shuttle Bay, Warp Core, Borg Cube, Genesis Planet, Klingon Ascension Rites, and many more. You can also upgrade your Simulations using Dilithuims. So, players, you can go “where no man has gone before”.
Tip #6 – Time Skip
An interesting aspect of Star Trek Lower Decks Mobile is that you can also skip time to save yourselves from hard work (it’s okay to cheat a little eh). To do so, you have to go to the Shop and scroll down to the Time Skip option. You can choose between 1 hour, 4 hours, and 1 full day, depending on how much Latinum you can spend. You can download it from Google Store and App Store. This guide is also going to help you in the majority of the gameplay. So players, Live long and prosper!
