The Star Trek: Bridge Commander wiki last edited by conmulligan on 05/09/13 10:52AM View full history

Overview

In Star Trek: Bridge Commander, players take control a Federation Starship as its newly minted Captain. Bridge Commander is best known for its unusual gameplay systems, most notably the ability to control the ship by giving orders to bridge officers.

Gameplay

Bridge Commander gave the player the ability to manually control a starship in 3D space and battle other ships. The player could also view the ship from the perspective of the captain and simply issue orders to officers instead of directly controlling the ship. Bridge Commander gave the player the ability to target subsystems on other enemy ships, giving the player a variety of strategies to use against enemy ships.

The game has two main modes, campaign and free play mode. The campaign follows a captain who is awarded command of gradually stronger ships as the story progresses, until finally the player is captain of a Sovereign class ship. The free play mode allowed players to go online and battle other players or battle AI and create custom scenarios involving starbases, starships, asteroids, etc. Federation, Borg, Romulan, Klingon, Kessok, Ferengi, and Cardassian ships appear throughout the game.
