    You really can't complain much about a PS2 game with a starting price of $14.99. For less than the cost of a Star Trek DVD you get a decent strategy game with a good selection of races to choose from and some arcade style ship smashing. Keep in mind that the ship combat plays more like Classic Seafaring combat than space. You swing around the enemy ships and try to "Cross the T" to You really can't complain much about a PS2 game with a starting price of $14.99. For less than the cost of a Star Trek DVD you get a decent strategy game with a good selection of races to choose from and some arcade style ship smashing. Keep in mind that the ship combat plays more like Classic Seafaring combat than space. You swing around the enemy ships and try to "Cross the T" to bring the most guns to bear on the enemy. This isn't actually discussed anywhere in the game or the booklet but anyone who has played a Sid Meiers Pirates game will notice the similiarity right away. There could have been MANY more unlockable features, much deeper strategy elements incorporating more weapons, upgrades and structures and some more interesting Admirals to choose from. Would have been nice if the Admirals actually DID something instead of acting like a levelable stat upgrade for your fleet as well but all in all it's pretty damn good for the price. Expand

    You know, I wish that publishers and PR people would keep skewing these scores to get people to buy their games. Now way is this game a 9.

    For a budget level game, this has surprising depth.. Good arcade sections and pretty deep strategy, good fun!

    Freed from all the TV actors and even the characters themselves, the game instead just rests comfortably in providing a tried-and-true game of strategy with enough variety and differences in play style to make every race feel like they can tackle the game differently.

    It's an offensively bad use of a cherished license, and it's an offensively simple and thoughtless strategy game.
  3. There's some good strategy fun to be had here, but the good is offset by some problematic areas. Star Trek fans and old-school strategy fans will enjoy it the most.
