Description

Volume II of Starfleet Command, this new version adds two races, the Mirak Star League (the Kzintis in the boardgame), and the Interstellar Concordium, each with their special weapons and ships. The game also introduced fighters and fast patrol ships (gunboats, sometimes called pseudo-fighters). A full "dynaverse" was included as a dynamic mission generator with full campaign mode.

Trivia

If you order this title directly from Interplay, you get a "bonus mission CD". However, this CD does NOT work without obtaining another patch from Interplay due to a change in the mission file structures before the game went gold.
