The alpha ramp of the Star Trek TNG Pinball is the ramp which never came with ramp protectors. The left side will break out first and after a matter of time, the left side will crack and break also. We have designed an easy to install (30 seconds) set of professionally machined stainless steel set of ramp protectors (left and right inside). If the damage has already started, this will help prevent further damage and greatly add value to you machine. Don't pay big bucks for new ramps, protect you investment! Buyer pays $4.00 shipping. Check out our other protectors for Addams, Theatre, Funhouse, and Star Trek TNG.
