There goes the neighborhood! Seems the Romulans have been experimenting on a top-secret weapon in the Neutral Zone and something has gone wrong during testing of Project Shiva. New resource-rich planets are blinking into existence throughout the buffer zone because of a spatial anomaly, and the temptation is proving too much for the peacekeeping United Federation of Planets and expansion-minded Klingon Empire.

The Romulan Star Empire is claiming rights to the new worlds since they're responsible for creating them. Indeed, colonies from all three factions are appearing on these worlds, a process bound to end in potentially dangerous confrontation as disputes over borders and territories emerge.

The year is 2292 and action takes place shortly after the setting of Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. These anomaly systems, known as the Tabula Rasa, are about to become a hotbed of intergalactic exploration and conflict. But, further investigation reveals that not all is as it seems, or is it? What is the true source of these worlds and is there an ancient species at their core, waiting to make an appearance? These are questions you'll probe as you delve into the mystery at the heart of Star Trek: New Worlds.

In this real-time strategy game that requires 3D acceleration, you play as a Federation officer, Klingon warrior or centurion of the Romulan Star Empire. There are 42 missions, 14 per race, each with a specific number of objectives and primary goals. Missions must be played in linear fashion and completed successfully in order to advance to the next; optional tasks and quests become available as the storyline unfolds. Depending on which race you choose, the story is revealed in varying ways through different perspectives and, in fact, some new worlds can be visited or seen by specific races only.

Each race has a large complement of structures, weapons, vehicles and upgrades available through a specific technology tree-based system. Once colonies are established, you must oversee the operations, security, engineering, medical, and science aspects of your bases. Six resources (raw dilithium, talgonite, silicon, kelbonite, magnesite ore and dolamide) must be found and mined by each colony then processed or converted for power generation, structural building materials or maintenance of facilities.

Combat in the game is employed to capture or destroy enemy outposts, vehicles, structures, weapons, and bases. Specific vehicles are governed by "playbooks" which are used to direct actions such as attack or protect while moving, rally, engage from static locations, bombard, capture or construct. Scanning, active and passive, is utilized in relation to medical, science or engineering aspects and vehicles.

Game features include three viewing perspectives (full 3D, isometric or close-up isometric), a point-and-click interface fully supported by keyboard shortcuts and hotkeys, and a multiplayer mode that accommodates up to three individuals. Multiplayer games have three possible victory conditions: destroy enemy headquarters, eliminate the possibility of an opponent meeting a mission objective, or complete your own mission objectives before the previous two conditions are imposed on you. The game supports LAN or Internet play for three opponents and modem play for two.

It's Star Trek space borne adventure with a twist -- a land rush! Prepare to disembark on Star Trek: New Worlds.

For Windows (32-bit Systems) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']

WHAT YOU GET:

This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.

IMAGES:

All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.

COMPATIBILITY:

Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.

PLATFORM:

Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.

MEDIA FORMAT:

Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.

RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A SMOOTH PURCHASE:

  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.


  • SHIPPING:

    We typically ship all items out within 1-2 business days after payment is received. In regards to the stated shipping and handling, remember that these costs include more than just postage.

    International buyers please email/chat with us to determine if you are eligible for shipping of a specific product. If you are, then international buyers not shipping to an address within the U.S. can expect their orders to take anywhere from 5 days to 4 weeks to be received, depending on how fast/well USPS is moving. Additionally, international orders typically have to go through governmental customs, which can delay the arrival process. Import duties, taxes, and charges are not included in the item price or shipping cost. These charges are the buyer's responsibility. Please check with your country's customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to buying. Customs fees are normally charged by the shipping company or collected when you pick the item up. These fees are not additional shipping charges.
