This app is a must-have for Trekkies! Turn your Android tablet or HD phone into a Utopia Planetia database pad!!!
This app is a starship database containing schematics and technical data on 50+ classes of star ship found in the Star Trek television series (TOS, TNG, VOY, DS9, ENT) and the movies. These include ships from the Federation, Starfleet, the Klingon Empire, the Romulan Empire, the Cardassians, the Dominion, the Bajoran Militia and the Maquis; with more being added in future updates!!!
This app was designed to imitate the look and feel of the Library Computer Access Retrieval System or " LCARS " interface from the popular sci-fi TV series and movies, just to make it that bit more fun to use, and to scream "I am Trekkie, hear me ROAR!"
The app has a number of sound features (all of which can be enabled or disabled in the settings menu) including touchscreen response beeps, computer style voice prompts and the ability to play a constant warp-core hum noise in the background.
The warpcore hum noise can even be used in your Android system while the app is in the background if you press your Home button instead of exiting the app. That way, you can carry on surfing the web to the soothing sound of a class 9 warp drive running inside your Android! You can even leave it running on your bedside table at night and see what it would be like to sleep on a starship! True trekkie white noise.
You can also take a screen shot of any of the ships you see in the database, so you can save them to your SD cards to be used as backgrounds, backed up to the cloud, or shared with Google+, Facebook, Twitter, etc. - wherever you share!
Note: You can also disable screen shots in the settings to remove the save icon in the top left of the ship database while you are not using it, that way it wont intrude on the display and spoil the LCARS styling.
We will soon also be offering a template and some resources on our developer website which will enable you, the fans, to be able to design and submit your own additions to the ship database, subject to guidelines and selection process.
The approved user submissions will be included in the app in future updates!
***As with any app on Google Play, ratings and comments matter a great deal to us developers - so please take the time to rate and comment on this app, it is sincerely appreciated and deeply felt! Thank-you!***

Development and Test Devices : HTC One X, Nexus 7 ( I know I am biased, but it looks really good on these devices!)
I designed it for Nexus 7 - but the playground is open! ;)
