I must say this DLC adds an enjoyable map for Versus and Challenge modes. I took my time to review this as this is one of my favorite maps when online with friends, and it would be usefull for people not to accidentally skip this content. The full three dollars might be a bit much for some, so it might be smart to get it in a 33% or 50% off. But if you miss this content in your list I do advice you to pick it up any time soon!
...this dlc is worth it. Provides more content than the average "just one map" dlc and it's really well made. You're gonna like this new equipment, depends of course on your treknerdmeter. As for the price, most preferably get it on a sale or something, if you can handle the absence of an existing Magicka dlc from your hard drive.
DLC like this is a bit of a mixed bag for me; the little extras are nice and all, but are they really worth the cost of admission? Maybe at around a dollar (sales, discount codes?), but for $2.99 I'd have to say probably not. Here you get a new versus and challenge map, a new Trek-flavored robe, and a phaser. I generally find cosmetic items kind of useless, so the robe doesn't really do anything special for me. The phaser, in my experience, kind of sucked; it didn't seem to do much damage, which makes it also largely cosmetic. The map ends up being the greatest addition to gameplay. I'm tempted to rate this lower because it lacks in the content/functionality department, but I am a fan of Magicka and--let's face it--phasers *are* pretty cool. Thus, a fairly generous 70/100.
The PvP map is a faithful recreation of the infamous arena battle between Kirk & Spock from Star Trek. In addition to the map, this DLC includes Federation robes and phasers for that extra bit of detail. Worth a purchase alone for the robes and weapons but as a package it's highly recommended.
Finally, a Magicka dlc worthy of its price. For the price compared to the rest of the DLC you get loads of new content. A new map for use in PvP and the challenge mode as well as a few new enemies and a new outfit! Its a great buy and adds some new variety to the game.
