Yeah, I'm playing it (*ducks for cover from the hail of rotten vegetables*).

I mostly don't notice it - you can go almost vertical, you just can't roll over the top.

It is a little annoying, but it does maintain the atmosphere of the game a bit more - you see the Enterprise making big banking turns, not barrel rolls.


Just because you didn't see it happen, doesn't mean it didn't.

True, but they've got a ton of material (how many movies and TV show episodes) establishing how spacecraft maneuver in this setting. I think it's reasonable that the game mimics this. You don't roll over the top, but you can do a steep bank that is nearly the same thing while maintaining the look and feel of the ships in the shows and movies.

While I have occasionally (maybe two or three times) found it annoying, it I can understand why they did it, and even think it was probably the right call.
