Star Fleet I: The War Begins!

Interstel Corporation 1983
Genre: Simulation, Strategy
Rating: 3/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Star Fleet I: The War Begins! can be described as a starship tactical combat simulation but it has its roots in the very early days of computer gaming and, to me at least, the mechanics feel more like that of a board game than a true simulation. This game is actually a clone of an earlier title that originated on university mainframes in the 1970s and it is not the only such clone in existence. So, you might be tempted to describe the game and its gameplay as unoriginal. However, the game does establish an elaborate backstory which is the basis for its small franchise which, along with the game's own colorful history, is arguably much more interesting than the game itself.

Star Fleet II provides a good deal of depth in taking on the role of a commander of starship in a tactical combat role. This includes exploration, navigation, combat, crew morale, supply management, outpost establishment, and other aspects. Many different functions are available from the bridge which are used in various capacities to complete different missions which involve flying the spacecraft into enemy territory with ultimate goal of conquering the region space. This includes navigation and strategic displays as well and communications and weapons console. As the player progresses through the ranks additional functions become available such as the ability to command a "battle fleet" including the player's ship plus up to four escort destroyer ships.
