Interplay Entertainment Corp. proudly announced today that the latest addition to the critically acclaimed Star Trek: Starfleet Command® franchise, Star Trek: Starfleet Command - Orion Pirates has shipped to retail. Starfleet Command - Orion Pirates is a stand-alone expansion pack that adds a new storyline and significant new features to the Star Trek: Starfleet Command series and will allow gamers the unique experience of playing as the ruthless Orion Pirates for the first time. Starfleet Command - Orion Pirates is now available for Windows® 95/98/00/ME based computers.
Released through 14 Degrees East, a division of Interplay, and developed by Taldren Inc., Starfleet Command - Orion Pirates centers around the deadly Orion Pirates, a popular, long-standing element of the Star Trek Universe. A brutal force of privateers and criminals controlling territories of Federation Space, the Orion Pirates consist of eight cartels, each with unique histories, user interfaces, crew voices and identifying logos.
The game features a 12-mission campaign plus 26 skirmish missions and three bonus missions based on the classic TV episode "A Piece of the Action". In these bonus missions, players must return to the Planet Iotia to execute a deal negotiated by the Starship Enterprise, collecting dues from 1920's style gangsters. Instead, they find that the "Orions" have been hard at work muscling in on the Iotians, carving up that part of the galaxy. This latest installment of the Starfleet Command series features new phaser types, including shield piercing, along with other new weapons such as heavy photons.
Star Trek: Starfleet Command - Orion Pirates is a stand-alone product that does not require Star Trek: Starfleet Command Volume II to play. Complete information on Star Trek: Starfleet Command - Orion Pirates can be found on our website. For the latest Star Trek news and information, visit the official Internet home of Star Trek.
