Star Trek is always one of those series in which its new products continually cost more than the previous ones. Rumors are surfacing that the new HD version of the original Star Trek TV show series will cost $217 for season 1!
But don’t worry because Bethesda Software has announced a new game called Star Trek: Conquest and boy it’s going to be cheap! The PS2 version is $19.99 and the Wii version is $29.99! Those prices are so low that you have to wonder if Bethesda is giving gamers a bargain or if Star Trek: Conquest is really a bad game…
From its description though it seems like a lot of fun. Imagine last year’s Star Trek Legacy, but with the ability to manage your fleets and admirals, building support structures, researching technology, and engaging your enemies in combat. It’s in combat when the game turns into a real-time ship blasting game.
With the Wii version in battle gameplay, you aim your laser cannons with the Wii-mote and maneuver your starship with the nun-chuck. When you’re building up your resources you use your Wii-mote to control your ships.
Unlike Star Trek Legacy, Conquest takes place only in The Next-Generation era. You can control Federation, Klingon, Romulan, Cardassian, Dominion, and Breen forces, to control the Galaxy one planet at a time.
You won’t have to wait that long for this title as it’s coming out Holiday 07.
