From back of box:
    Great people of the Krellan Empire. For many years we have suffered the indignity of waiting and watching the United Galactic Alliance steal from us what we so justly deserved. We have stood idle long enough! The Alliance must be eliminated!

    This day, we have a great military that is unmatched anywhere in the entire galaxy. You, great warrior servants of Zagar, shall reap the rewards of glorious victory. The time is right for our attack. Together we are invincible, and all who oppose us will be destroyed!

    I have devised a great plan. Soon, the first step in the annihilation of the United Galactic Alliance will begin! The galaxy will be ours!!
    - Henri Zae, Krellan Emperor


    STAR FLEET II - Krellan Commander is the second in the STAR FLEET series of advanced space strategy simulations. Having fought as an Alliance starship commander in STAR FLEET I to stem the onslaught of the Krellan and Zaldron Empires, you now get a chance to try command on the "winning" side.

    As Commander of a Krellan battlecruiser with four destroyer escorts (forming a "battle fleet"), your mission is to explore the star systems of the United Galactic Alliance looking for planets to conquer and Alliance warships to destroy. Your ships are equipped with the latest technology, including phasers, homing torpedoes and deadly obliterator pods. Also at your command are elite shock troops for boarding and capturing enemy vessels, and legions of Krellan warriors for planetary invasions.

    STAR FLEET II gives you more depth, complexity, and realism than any simulation before. But that's not all - STAR FLEET II is actually two games in one! Every time you invade a planet, STAR FLEET II switches to a complete planetary invasion game that allows you to control the conquering Krellan forces in their attempt to overwhelm the planetary defenders.

    From up to dozens of military targets on the detailed planetary map, select and control up to eight invasion zones from your Invasion Control Screen, or take personal command of your units. Your objectives: to capture cities and factories; knock out shield generators, planetary defense phasers, point defense lasers, and missile launchers; and eliminate both UGA troops and native militia forces. Like combat in space, planetary combat is real time (no turns!).

    Attack and pillage planets, wipe out civilizations with a single command, interrogate prisoners from a captured starliner - who said command can't be fun!
