I saw that.  How is Starfleet III?  I think I only played II way back in the day.

"In addition, two real-time strategy titles, Star Trek: Armada and Star Trek: Armada II are coming soon and you can now add them to your wishlists."

From an old GameSpot review in 2002:
"It's clear from the outset that Starfleet Command III is striving for a broader audience. While the first two games were applauded by Star Trek fans and hard-core strategy gamers, they were also maligned for their cumbersome interfaces and complicated gameplay. Taldren has overhauled the Starfleet Command series to appeal to a wider audience, and the changes are immediately noticeable."

"The biggest difference from previous editions is a change in setting from classic Star Trek to the Next Generation. The new setting means that all the ships, weapons, and technology are brand new, and the races are significantly changed. The numerous factions of the previous game have been pared down to the four core races of the Next Generation canon--the Federation, Klingons, Romulans, and Borg--which also translates into tighter campaigns and more-focused gameplay."

Nice, but still think I'm gonna wait for a GOG sale to pick up SFCIII.

Place where the Starfleet Command game enthusiasts have wound up and where, I think, one can still buy said game.

The FireSoul's ship mod makes one go all giggly as they slew around the stars in their round nacelled Federation ship (as God intended).

I played through Elite Force and EF2 so I may not pick up at the full price. But I'm picking up Bridge Commander and Starfleet Command III now! Buying the Armadas as soon as they release!

Too bad Star Trek: Birth of the Federation is still not there... :(

Got myself the Elite Force 1&2 as well as Bridge Commander. Will also get both Armadas. Already have all these games but being able to just download them without drm and running on windows 10 is cool.
