Star Trek: Conquest blends turn-based strategy and real-time combat from on board starships featured in the television series, Star Trek: The Next Generation. Six playable factions include the Federation, Klingon, Romulan, Cardassian, Dominion, and Breen forces. The goal is to control the entire galaxy, so players must build structures, commission admirals, research technology, and manage fleets during a strategic phase. Fleets of up to seven vessels are deployed on a galactic map, whose size varies based on the number of opposing races.
Entering enemy territory automatically switches the game to a battle phase, which can be carried out in a real-time, action-oriented event or simulated for a more tactical feel. In addition to the custom campaign, players can jump into a skirmish mode that pits two rival fleets against one other under a number of user-defined conditions. Adjustable options include AI difficulty, fog of war, and starting credits or currency. While the two console versions of Star Trek: Conquest feature identical content, the Wii game adds motion-based controls supporting both the Wii Remote and Nunchuk. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
