With the recent end of the Dominion War, the three major powers of Alpha Quadrant begin their plans for the future. An uncomfortable peace settles over the galaxy. Federation planets begin their process for recovery and the USS Enterprise-E is assigned to re-establish Federation support in many devastated systems of the quadrant. On the Klingon home world, newly appointed Chancellor Martok is working closely with Federation Ambassador Worf to restore the empire to its former glory.
The Romulan Senate and its intelligence division, the Tal Shiar, devise a plan to tip the balance of power in their favor. Admiral Sela begins secret negotiations with unseen allied forces near the Klingon border. On top of all this, the Borg have returned in full force.
You must control fleets of Federation ships to complete universally important missions. The fate of the galaxy depends on your actions! Defeat the enemy factions and the Borg and return peace to the Alpha Quadrant.
Star Trek: Armada can be played in two modes. The single player game begins your campaign to save the galaxy and restore peace. The first of such missions is the Federation Campaign, in which you build stations, establish dilithium mining operations, evade Klingon birds of prey and protect spaceships and stations from being destroyed. Throughout the game, you control each of the four different races and then take on the Borg using all your allied forces! When each mission's specific goals have been completed, a video containing objectives of your next mission is shown. In multi-player mode, you choose which of the four races to command and battle against players over the Internet or a LAN.
The game features many different ships available for you to command. The fighter ships help destroy enemies along with the USS Enterprise-E. Construction ships allow you to build stations and dilithium mining outposts while space stations provide the platform to create several different ships and gun turrets to aid in your battles. From Worf to Captain Picard, you'll hear the real cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation when you give commands to your ships and watch the animated video stories.
The entire galaxy is relying on you to destroy the oncoming hordes of Borg ships or humanity, as well as other races in the galaxy, will not survive. Without your help, the Borg will obliterate the Alpha Quadrant. Battle stations! ~ Nick Woods, All Game Guide
