Immediately upon leaving the station, the train enters a straight section of track. The track then shifts to the right until it lines up with the launch track, at which point a door in front of the track opens. The train then begins to launch forward and travels part of the way up the first top hat. It then launches backwards along the same launch track before travelling backwards up another twisted section of track. The train then launches forward and travels over the top hat. Following the top hat, the train makes a slight left turn before entering an Immelmann loop immediately followed by a heartline roll. The train then enters a banked turn to the right before entering a tunnel through a building. The train then travels over a series of small hills before making a right turn into the final inversion, a corkscrew. Following the corkscrew, the train enters the final brake run before making a right turn back into the station.
The ride is themed to the Star Trek: The Next Generation series. The ride features a pre-show that includes several elements such as a 3D mapping effect and various themed rooms. The ride has a musical score provided by Paderborn, Germany-based IMAscore.
