Summary: Love the game play etc. but there are graphics glitches in this game that were never addressed and patched or corrected that can lock it up or make it jump back to the deckstop and ruin a good roll you might be having in combat. If it does not flake out on you, it is really a kewl approach that would have been great to see sequals to. Especially with all of the voices from actors from the DP9 TV show. Could have been great!
Summary: Let's just start by saying I am a Trekkie at heart. That said, this game makes me embarrassed to admit to loving Star Trek. This game takes place during the Deep Space 9 Star Trek series and, much like the series it is based on, is absolutely the worst thing to ever happen to Star Trek. The plot is weak, the voice acting is paper thin, the gameplay is worse than a second grade play, and the game suffers from what I call "too much, too soon" syndrome.
Hard to make work, but once you get it working... it's a lot of fun.

Summary: There have been many Star Trek games over the years, and while a few have been outstandingly fun, others have been terrible, and still others had great potential but were hobbled by flawed presentations. This game falls into the last category. I'm going to write this in two sections. First, some basics on on the game and on gameplay, and second, a "how to" about how to make the game run properly.
Summary: This game was a great game. It had a great story line for the Federation and dominion. It provided you with a what-if story if the federation had lost. The importing ships from creator was a nice touch. you could upgrade the ships, import them, and watch them fight in instant action, and if you have an endless supply of credits in creator warp 2, and upgraded your ship well, you can watch it take on the entire AI fleet.
Summary: This game is not perfect but it is loads of fun. The graphics are excellent and so is the gameplay. However, I will get to the point regarding the glitchy mouse control. Don't bother getting patches 1.05 or whatever some people here have been suggesting. My computer runs on Windows XP and I had the same problems when I first ran the program. The solution: 1. go to the Dominion Wars shortcut. 2. right click on the icon. 3. select properties. 4.
Summary: I will only say that I've never played a worse game in my life. I'm a huge ST fan but this software creation (if that's what it can be called) is a smack across the face. To be more specific... Highly unstable with countless software glitches, the game isn't even ripe for a beta test.
Summary: The game is actually rather good. the graphics are exellent and look like lower resolutions of the models on the show. However, they did mess up a few things and omitted some others which would have made the game better. "Starship Creator warp2" which came with my dominion wars and allegedly lets you import different designs of ships and captains was a complete debacle, the transfer of ships simply doesn't work.
Summary: I bought this game because it was Star Trek. Also, it CLAIMED that it would work right on Windows 98. But, NO, when I first played it, it crashed, then when I went to XP, it worked but the cursor was slow as heck. Then, I went looking for the patch I needed, and it wasn't there, however there were what looked like dozens of other patches there. It was obsolete, they said. Well I guess I bought the game too late to get the patch then huh?
