The Organians have hired the Interstellar Concordium (ISC) to help restore peace and order to the Alpha Quandrant by forcing
eight races into submission. You pilot your own ship in one of the eight galactic governments (Gorn Confederation, Hydran
Kingdoms, Interstellar Concordium, Klingon Empire, Lyran Star Empire, Mirak Star League, Romulans or the United Federation of
Planets) forced to thwart this action.
Star Trek: Starfleet Command Volume II -- Empires at War, a space combat simulation, features both single and multiplayer
missions, with the latter played over the Internet in the online Dynaverse 2. Single player action offers tutorial, skirmish or
campaign modes. The tutorial covers all aspects of ship control (weapons, defense, movement, science and command), skirmish
mode puts you instantly in battle utilizing a ship of any of the eight races and the campaign provides a choice of race and
The Alpha Quadrant contains not only enemy races but monsters of unknown origin. You can sabotage the enemy by beaming
aboard their ships and taking out specified systems. Electronic Counter Measures (ECM) are used to destroy incoming missiles.

only one ship in battle (the computer handles the rest), you can relinquish control to a secondary officer at any time and move to
Photon and plasma torpedoes, standard missiles, phasers and mines are some of the weapons available in your arsenal. Tractor
beams hold missiles at bay while your defensive systems destroy them. Ships have limited energy and nearly all actions, including
speed, ECM level, shield strength and weapons, drain power that must be restored. Some races, (e.g., Klingon and Romulan) use
cloaking technology which also drains power.
The interface is mouse and keyboard controlled with various hot keys available for weapon selection, camera angles, jumping
from ship to ship and bomb placements. Other keys allow grouping of weapons, cycling through targets, launch of shuttles and
probes, switching displays, toggling cloaking devices, activating tractor beams and shields and adjusting the game's slider speed.
Whether playing for pride or survival, blood lust or prosperity, you must help your race survive and destroy the ISC before the
galaxy is conquered!
