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

The Dynaverse feature does NOT work out of the box. Apparently Flipside.com, the planned host of the Dynaverse servers, backed out of the deal after the game went gold. Interplay is scrambling to create new servers in-house, but there's quite a few complaints.
