Description

Set shorty after the last season of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Armada is an RTS set in space. You can command one of 4 races to vie for control of the galaxy. How the story unfolds depends on which of the four factions you choose.

Shortly after the Dominion War, the Enterprise-E is on patrol when they encounter a time anomaly, out of which emerges the federation USS Premonition, under attack from the Borg. After the Borg are beat back, the captain of the Premonition explains that he has come back to warn the federation of an impending Borg invasion that has taken place in the future, and it is up to the player to stop this from happening.

As this is an RTS, gameplay is based on space combat, and all vessels featured are all authentic Star Trek vessels. Like with all RTS games, you have to collect resources to build your armada. In keeping with trek lore, this is in the form of dilithium, which is harvested from nearby asteroids. You can then build vessels and other structures, assuming you have the right tech level, resources, as well as crew members, who you can recruit at you starbase.

Multiplayer is also like many other strategy games, allowing you to take on human or A.I opponents over the internet or locally.
