It's time to boldly go back to where it all began. Star Trek: Tactical Assault
is an odd mix of space combat, RPG and strategy games. In the past, Star Trek
games that exist on the ship-wise scale (as opposed to the ones that let you control the individual crew members) have typically been large scale, turn-based or real-time strategy games that pit your empire or federation against all of the others.
Tactical Assault is similar to those, but lets you focus on the wars on an individual ship-by-ship basis. Instead of controlling the hundreds of ships that each race has at its disposal, you play as a captain and go from sector to sector fighting out little skirmishes and managing your crew to better your government on a more individual level.
