    Licence issues no doubt for these types of tables with a big third party copyright company like CBS, hell look at the trouble Zen had with the universal tables, and they were not even actual real life tables, and they still could not get the offical music on any of them.

    Thankfully i was lucky enough to grab TNG and ST Vengence tables on PBA, and even grabbed all the VR Stern tables on the Oculus rift, as god knows how long before these are gone for good, because just two weeks all ACDC tables were removed from everything FS pinball related....got to grab these tables when you get the chances because they might never appear again.

    And due to the issues that stopped offical music appearing on the three universal three tables, can you imagine the copyright licence nightmare of actually getting on Zen....
    TNG and ST Vengence tables, The Twighlight Zone, Addams family, Last action hero, Starship troopers, Terminator 2, Dr Who, Bram Stoker's Dracula, Judge Dredd and Ghostbusters......but i would like to be surprised and wrong.

    Default Charge More for Better Tables

    Zen needs to charge more for better tables like Terminator, Star Trek Next Generation, Addams Family, etc. People that complain about paying more for something that gives them ours weeks months and years of fun have no reason to complain. Zen needs to hire more developers make more original tables and release some of the better Williams tables that people will pay more money for. There is truly a market for quality pinball that people all paid for let's do it .

    This is one of the best real pinball tables ever made. A recreation by Zen would be wonderful. The Star Wars tables aren't relevant. Different license, different table style.

    I doubt Zen will throw £50'000 into licensing just for any table, assuming that price has not gone up since PBA did STTNG pinball, Farsight tried that model, they even had numorous kickstarts to pay for the licence of T2 and Adams family, and each cost over £100,000 in licensing, and they still had issue with the actors, and in AF they had to change some of the artwork so it did not infring on some of the actors faces.......so do not build your hopes up for anything from Bally and Willimas that has a third party copyright IP covering movies and TV shows, unless the licence is really cheap or Zen intend to also go the kickstart route for specific tables.

    TNG, probably my favourite table of all time. Played it for countless hours with my best friend in our favourite bar. so many good memories.
    There is a good VP10 version out there, but having the FX3 version would be just great. even if zen would charge extra for those license tables....shut up and take my money!

    Yea I made one on vp9 and have played the vp10 but I do like the zen tables. It would be nice but probably wishful thinking.
