FarSight Studios tries their hand at Kickstarter once again, this time with a Star Trak table.

In an effort to bring the Star Trek The Next Generation Pinball Table to The Pinball Arcade, FarSight Studios is asking Kickstarters to pool together and pledge a total of $45,000 to help pay for licensing fees and other costs that make bringing pinball tables such as this one to the game difficult.

FarSight has previously found success through Kickstarter in bringing The Twilight Zone pinball table to the game's list of tables. The company successfully raised $77,500 to help pay for fees associated with that tables licenses, which greatly surpassed their goal of $55,000. 

The Pinball Arcade has already been released for multiple platforms including the iPhone, iPad, the Android platform,the Kindle Fire, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PS Vita, and Macintosh; and is slated for release on the Nintendo 3DS and Wii U platforms. So far $28,461 out of the goal of $45,000 has been raised with 25 days to go.

YES! I sooooo want this table. I need this. I am throwing money at the screen, but nothing is happening yet. Consider this one pledged. Now... I wait...

Didn't someone try this recently and failed to get the money? I know some company tried to raise money on Kickstarter to get the TNG pinball license but came up short of their goal.

You're probably thinking of the Twilight Zone Kickstarter, where we got $77,000 pledged (only a little less than $70,000 actually paid) but failed to meet the $110,000 stretch goal to get the Star Trek TNG table licensed.  The excess money ended up being rolled into this Kickstarter instead, which is why it's less than the $60,000 they need.
