Bethesda Softworks Announces
STAR TREK®: Conquest for Holiday 2007

STAR TREK®: Conquest to be Released for the Wii™ and
PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system

August 3, 2007 (Rockville, MD) – Bethesda Softworks®, a ZeniMax Media company, today announced its next STAR TREK videogame, STAR TREK®: Conquest, a blend of strategy and intense action set in “The Next Generation” era. Conquest will be available for the Wii™ home video game system from Nintendo and PlayStation®2.

Players take control of Federation, Klingon, Romulan, Cardassian, Dominion, and Breen forces and lead them in a campaign to control the Galaxy, one planet at a time. Build and manage your growing empire in turn-based strategy, fully utilizing the Wii Remote™ as you select and maneuver your starships throughout the large, galactic map.

Strategically, you must effectively manage limited resources to expand your empire. You decide how to best achieve objectives by managing your fleets and admirals, building support structures, researching technology, and engaging your enemies in combat.

Once battle is initiated, Conquest switches to a ship level tactical view allowing direct command of your ships as you engage in real-time combat. While maneuvering your starship with the Nunchuk™, take direct aim and fire away with the Wii Remote™.

Conquest has not yet been rated by the ESRB. Scheduled for a simultaneous release this Holiday at an estimated MSRP of $29.99 on the Wii™ and $19.99 on the PlayStation®2. For more information visit http://startrek.bethsoft.com.

Sounds to me like a console version of "Birth of the Federation". Judging by the graphics, i'm not impressed. Even I know that both the Wii and even the PS2 can get better graphics then that. At the moment, this does not seam interesting.

Judging a game by its graphics is a poor philosophy.

Its not the graphics that count - its the gameplay - take "Tactical Assault" as an example - graphically, because of the platform it was on, it was not very good, but in terms of gameplay - many say it was the best release from Bethsoft last year.
