North America Retail Box ArtTake to the planes of space once more with Star Trek: Starfleet Command 3 for the PC. The game, which continues on from the popular Star Trek Commander series, allows you to pit your wits against the Klingons, Romulans and occasional Borg in this real-time strategy battle fest. Set before the latest Star Trek Next Generation movie--Star Trek Nemesis--the Klingon and Federations alliance has become awfully close--too close for the liking of the ever encroaching Romulans. And so with the chance of peace on a galactic scale, the Romulans want one thing and one thing only: war. Playing all three races, there is plenty of depth for both the RTS fan and Star Trek aficionado alike, and with an array of weapons, shuttle craft to control and scanning to be done, this game will soon eat a couple of hours without any thought. Graphics and sound are similar to the previous incarnations, meaning this game will easily run on a low-spec machine. Meanwhile the standardised inclusion of multi-player options, quick skirmishes and campaign-based levels shows that Activision is still offering plenty to play within the game. If you are a hardened fan of the Star Trek genre, then this game will certainly be for you. Yes, there is less choice than in previous versions, but somehow this comes across as a good thing. For the real-time strategist, it offers something different, with plenty of time to manage weapons, ships and entire fleets --Jason Denwood
