I got this game last night.
I give it a 85/100. The game play is simple to pick up and play. It's a very fun and addictive game. You can start as one of 5 races and 1 of 3 captians for each race. Then you start out by creating a game by selecting how many opponets you want to play against. Then you can built starbases, mining base, research base or gun turrents. You can built fleets of ships and you get exp for your battles, which allows you to raise your captians skills. Then you just try to take over the universe. You can upgrade your starbases and abilities.
Biggest grip I have about the game is the lack of Multiplayer....how could you not include it? This game would be hella fun online.
It's a must buy for any Strategy or Star Trek fans. Well worth the $30.
