SummaryA great real-time strategy game
The GoodThe graphics are great. Ships fire phasers, torpedoes and a slew of other weapons.
You can actually zoom in close to watch the action up-close. The sounds are incredible. You'll think that you are in a movie. Every time you click on a ship, the captain says something in appropiate response to your commands. The controls are intuitive and soon you'll find yourself mistaking the mouse and keyboard for a tactical control panel. The story is also top notch and could be straight from a movie. You get to be the Federation, Borg, Romulans and Klingons, each with their own special weapons and attributes.
The BadThe AI can be poor. In a normal game, your opponents have an annoying habit of building stations in your base and building mining stations nowhere near dilithium moons (the place where you get resources).
