Ever wonder what it would be like to have Klingons at the helm of the USS Enterprise? Or to see Captain Kirk and Mr. Spock fighting for the glory of the Romulan Empire?
In Star Trek: Fleet Command, you can mix and match familiar heroes, villains, ships, and factions in canon-breaking ways. There’s no such thing as highly illogical here.
Fleet Command’s blend of base-building strategy and real-time starship combat takes place in the sleek and shiny Star Trek universe featured in J.J. Abrams’ movies. As you upgrade your sprawling starbase’s facilities, you’ll recruit famous faces – like Chris Pine’s James T. Kirk – to man your ships. Random fan favourites are sprinkled in as well. Who can forget General Chang, the Shakespeare-quoting Klingon from Star Trek VI?
Between looking after your starbase and heading out on missions, you’ll find a galaxy’s worth of stuff to do. A helpful A.I. companion keeps you on track as you battle vicious Nausicaan Raiders and meet dozens of characters who need your help – or want you dead.
Building a new vessel and watching it glide out of dry-dock is an awesome spectacle – complete with Abrams’ trademark lens flare, naturally. And an optional augmented reality (AR) feature lets you snap photos of your ships in real-world settings. USS Intrepid, reporting for living-room patrol!
Some missions even have you making tricky Trek decisions. Should you free a captured Klingon spy or toss him in the brig? Do you order McCoy to treat the wounded crew of a crash-landed freighter, or urge Spock to start repairing the ship’s ruptured hull?
Once you’ve decked out your ships with upgraded weapons and shields, you can make forays into more dangerous stretches of space. But before boldly going where no one has gone before, consider joining an in-game alliance. Whether you’re teaming up to mine asteroids or launching an all-out assault on another squad's base, it’s good to have friends in the final frontier.
