Summary: For those of you addicted to the star fleet battles board game, this interplay game automates all of the "bookkeeping" and provides a nice UI, you can play a computer, or your friends. One unhappy note is that it only runs on WinXP (ideally sp3). As I have Win 8.1 I had to build a WinXP VM and play in that. Also you may have trouble if MSS32.dll is missing from your system. I was able to find the DLL and drop it into the game folder, after that it played fine.
Summary: Starfleet Command (SFC) is an incredibly deep starship combat game-if you can call it a game. I think of it as more of a simulator, it's so complex. Star Trek nerds will love the many references to Star Trek's realistic technology and those technologies' application to galactic warfare. So I would recommend this game to Star Trek or science fans who like highly technical gameplay...like me!
Summary: Having read the previous reviews, I've come to one conclusion: none of these people ever played star fleet battles, the board game from the late 70s and early 80s. Starfleet command is not only based on Star Fleet Battles, it's nearly exact to the board game, but it takes minutes instead of hours to play. And anyone who played SFB knows this: playing against a living person is better than playing against an automated opponent.
Summary: As I'm unable to "fully" review this game, let me just say, the game is not compatible with WIN XP. If you are lucky (or foolish) enough to still be running Win 98, then you may be able to get the game to load.
Summary: Did you ever want to buy a Star Trek game that offered excellent tutorial functions, a realistic on-screen display and 3D rendering gameplay that allowed you sit in captain's chair? Well, it's here so you better click Buy Now! because this is the game you've been waiting for. Play one of 5 races: Federation, Klingon, Romulan, Gorn, Lyran, or Hydran. All races have their own unique ships and game play which looks pretty close to what you see on the box..
