The Borg have returned! A starship from the future has materialized to warn of the latest Borg threat. You are in charge of the fleets on Federation, Klingon, Romulan, and Borg ships that will wage this epic battle. Build starships, construct space stations, and research special weapons to lead your side to victory. Along the way, you will survive a Klingon civil war, Romulan subterfuge, and the Borg's search for perfection. The future is in your command.
Star Trek: Armada is the first real-time 3-D strategy game set in the Star Trek: The Next Generation universe. In various campaigns, the player assumes command of the fleets of the Federation, Klingon, Romulan, and Borg, using up to 30 starships in dynamic ship-to-ship combat as well as overseeing the construction, repair, and staffing of the ships.

Each race has it's own set of missions to form a campaign, and without giving too much away the different missions are interlinked. You don't even have to complete all the missions for one race before playing as a different one!
On the downside some of the missions are quite difficult to complete, even in the Easy difficulty mode. There is a cheat code to bypass difficult missions, but I think it's best to keep trying until you either; a) win or b) give up and use the cheat code!
I got bored of the single player missions after a while and decided to try the multiplayer version instead. Although I was unable to establish a connection to the outside world, probably due to the firewall settings on my router, there IS an "Instant Action" mode available which allows you to play against random or chosen adversaries in a randomly generated environment. I've had great fun experimenting with different combinations of enemies and difficulty levels. A word of warning though - the Hard difficulty level is not an overstatement!
You will receive warning messages when installing and running this game under XP, however it will work provided that you either; a) install and run using an Administrator account or b) use the "Run as Administrator" option when right-clicking on the setup file (to install) and "Play Star Trek Armada" icon (to run the game) if you are sensible enough to use a Limited User account for day-to-day computing.
The game seems to run even better under Windows Vista. Apart from answering a User Account Control (UAC) prompt to install Armada, the software appears to run with no problems on Vista, even with a non-Adminstrator account.
Overall this game has already provided me with hours of entertainment already and I plan on playing it for many more hours to come!
Survive up to 20 Camaign Missions and few extra ones if you are lukey, if you are a Trekky this is a game defiently for you, if your not, it is bound to get you into ther role of the Star Trek Univerese:D.
Many campaigns to choose from and the ability to have instant games. Its possible to play this online however i'm not sure if the servers are running anymore.
It is possible to create your own maps with additional software that's easily available online. Using this software you can have fun creating your own instant action maps against up to 7 computer opponents. (I always put me as fed's and 1 klingon on the hardest setting VS 6 borg. Fun stuff!
In my honest opinion I felt this game was even better that armada 2 in every aspect.
