Description

A Romulan experiment gone wrong has suddenly made multiple planet systems appear out of nowhere in this formerly barren sector. The area is named Tabula Rasa, and the three neighboring races... Federation, Klingon, and Romulan, are ready to exploit the newly found riches... But first they must deal with the natives, who may be friend of foe...

You are in control of a colony for your "empire". You must grow your colony and build defense and offense to secure your goals while mining the resources you came for. Build from the heart of your colony... the colony hub. Build mines to extract minerals from the ground (but they can run out). Build resource processors to get higher efficiency. Build vehicle yards to build better vehicles. Build research facility to get improved technology and better units, and so on and so forth. You must balance energy, growth, exploration, defense, crew, and when you get to it, offense. It is also possible to capture enemy structures.

Each side has a special unit with unique capabilities to make the battle more interesting. Multiplayer is supported over Gamespy. Several tutorial missions are also created.

This is an RTS style game based in the Star Trek universe, not an RTS revolutionising effort Lil Dave (3) 4.4 Stars4.4 Stars4.4 Stars4.4 Stars4.4 Stars
Initially promising, but falls quite short of the "enjoyable" mark Dave Schenet (130) unrated

Trivia

Tabula Rasa, the name of the new star system, is a Latin phrase meaning "smoothed or erased tablet." This phrase is commonly used to describe something in a pristine, untouched state.
