Full Guide and Roadmap (Inc DLC)

*Credit to Fourchan for majority of the roadmap, Analgia for the main guide and Midersaw for the DLC achievement guide. I have merely added DLC info to the roadmap and put it all in one place!

Overview

- Estimated achievement difficulty: 4/10 (2/10 for 200
- Offline 12 (235 )
- Online 0 (Can be boosted if necessary)
- Approximate amount of time to 235 : 5 hours(1-3 Hours for 200 )
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 10-15
- Number of missable achievements: 0
- Glitched achievements: 0
- Do cheat codes disable achievements?: No
- Does difficulty affect achievements?: No

Introduction:
Star Trek DAC is based upon the 2009 movie that's in theaters. The game includes various weapon upgrades through out the game marked as white floating squares, orange powerups with special abilities (Orange Squares). The game includes 3 classes to choose from (Fighter, Bomber and Capitial Ship).

Step #1: Preparation
When earning achievements use the Cheat Code to unlock the Kobayashi Maru Achievement - during game press start to pause, press: then unpause - giving your ship quicker shield recharge and shield regeneration. This also helps improve your weapons fire rate and now when boosting your ships speed isn't taken off your available weapon power. The code can only be used in single player and can be used in all game types.

Step #2: Playing the game
Even as hard as some of the achievements look, most of them can be earned by playing the game in single player with or without AI controlled bots. Without using the bots you can pretty much do all the capture achievements yourself, which can take roughly 25-30 minutes to get.

Step #3: Finishing the 200
If you can't get the 200 or roughly around the 180+ some of the achievements might need to be boosted. So far, the only achievement that you could have trouble with during this is the Nero's rage achievement. I got this by spawn camping the enemy spawn point and waiting for a group of them to spawn in that area, already having the invulnerability power up picked up.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
The quickest and simplest way to get the achievements in the game is to just hack away at it. Sit down and play it. Some of the achievements will come naturally and looking below at the completed guide will show you the easiest way to obtain the achievements.
DLC: Deluxe Edition

Firstly, follow the achievement guide to get Dreadnought with relative easy. Now comes by far the hardest achievement in the game, Captain on the Bridge. This will most likely be very frustrating and cause you to pull many things out of many places, but keep at it and it will eventually come. Follow the achievement guide, but personally I averaged around 6-7 million each time, then pulled 13 million out of nowhere, so it seems lady luck does have her part to play.

Conclusion:
The games a simple 200 with minimal boosting required. You can do this single player so Live Gold isn't fully required for those who don't have the Live Accounts. Although prepare to smash things when going for the DLC, great fun but oh so annoying

DLC


Dreadnought 15
Destroy all 5 ship classes plus 1 escape pod using the Missile Cruiser in Versus.

Simply start up a Versus Team Deathmatch game against the AI. Change the settings to max amount of time, max kills, max number of opponents and change the difficulty to Easy. Choose the Missile Cruiser and keep playing until you get it.

Captain on the Bridge 20
Earn the Captain rank in Survival Mode

This one is surprisingly tough. You need to earn at least 10,000,000 points to reach Captain rank and the points are not cumulative from game to game. I did it with the Bomber class because it is the fastest ship and has a powerful weapon. The Bomber is also the weakest class and can only take 2-3 hits once the enemies become red. Be patient and play conservatively. Stick to the edges of the maps because many enemies tend to gather in the middle. Use your crappy power-ups immediately to try and get Invincibility, and save it until you're about to die. There is one level where a ton of space pirate ships come and drop huge amounts of point boxes; there are also Temporal Distortion power-ups on this level you can use to gather a lot of point boxes. More importantly than trying to get kills and points, stay alive. Patience really is key.
