Boldy Going Where Mods Have Gone Before
Paradox are officially releasing a Star Trek strategy game, with a very familiar interface. Thankfully they did make the decision to release Star Trek Infinite for $30 instead of a price matching current new releases. The cover art is a little misleading, though it certainly catches the eye, as the game is set long before Star Trek: TNG. That timeframe also makes the inclusion of the U.S.S. Cerritos in the deluxe addition rather odd.
You will be able to play as the Klingon Empire, United Federation Of Planets, Romulan Star Empire, or the Cardassian Union with unique storylines and quests for each faction. It releases on October 12 and does not need the base Stellaris game. If you are itching to try something similar, Stellaris modders created a very comprehensive Star Trek mod with far more playable factions which you can try out right now.
