Featuring more than 25 missions with dialog penned by famed sci-fi writer D.C. Fontana, Star Trek: Bridge Commander features an epic campaign that propels players across the Alpha quadrant. Over the course of the single player campaign, players will encounter classic Star Trek antagonists such as Cardassians, Klingons, Romulans and Ferengi, and explore many of Star Trek's fundamental elements -- exploration, diplomacy, combat, rescue, and scientific discovery. Once in command, players can choose the style of play that suits them best, issuing orders to their bridge crew or jumping right into the action by personally taking the helm.
After mastering the single player campaign, players can continue to explore the final frontier in the Quick Battle instant action mode, or warp online for interstellar multiplayer mayhem. Players can control any ship in the game from the tactical view in four different gameplay modes including Deathmatch, Team deathmatch, Federation vs. non-Federation, and Defend the Starbase with up to four-players over the Internet play or eight-players over a LAN.
