This review was written by a startrek layman. My knowledge of the universe is limited to recent theatrical releases, and when asked „Star Trek or Star Wars?” without hesitation I would answer: the latter. However, I have a feeling that this will make me more fair towards the game, because the evaluation of a die-hard fan of the startrek world could be too harsh.
A generic Star Trek quote I wish I had known
Star Trek: Alien Domain can be played in a browser, but don't think that you'll play it for 5 minutes during a break at work like Ogame or Traviana. After logging in, I was greeted by a loading screen (kt re takes a nice while, especially at the first launch), after which the browser asked to display the game in fullscreen mode. No problem. We then choose one of the available sides in the galactic conflict: the United Federation of Planets or the Klingon Empire.
After choosing a faction and a name for the captain of our flagship, a long tutorial begins, during which e can learn about the mechanics of the gameplay. The interface at first glance is quite overwhelming with a multitude of options and menus, so it's worth focusing on completing missions at first, kt The gameplay is reminiscent of titles from a few years ago, which will teach us the key aspects game. So we put the first buildings in the base, extract raw materials (metal, crystal and deuterium) and fight the enemies.
You Rebel. ehm, Klingon scum!
There are a few aspects , kt Star Trek: Alien Domain resembles a typical browser-based click – resources, kt re we collect in real time, base expansion, technology development – but here the similarities end. Rather than logging into the game for a few moments to issue a few commands and close the browser, you'll spend an extended period of time traversing space, taking down hostile Klingon ships in (as in my case) or a broken down Federation.
The fight is quite static. The ships alternately shoot towards each other and we observe the fading shield fields and decreasing stamina bars. Every once in a while we can use kt have a special ability: shoot a series of lasers You can also use your weapons to shoot at the enemy fleet, or fire a powerful shot aimed at a single unit. Usually the clash lasts several seconds, and after it is over, we are on our way to the next planetary system, where new opponents are waiting.
Trees in space
I like the upgrade system – There are many trees of development creation. They concern practically every aspect that we can imagine in relation to the command of the space fleet. I am leaving aside such things as the development of new models of ships In Star Trek: Alien Domain we can freely change the armament of each of our ships. In Star Trek: Alien Domain we can freely change the armament of every ship in our fleet. Depending on the type of weapons will depend on the skill tree of the unit – Specific attacks can be upgraded, increasing their combat capabilities. e find different types of weapons by winning space battles and exploring unknown systems.
But what is a ship without a crew? Here e also have a large selection r. From d available cadets e appoint the command dc and officer in, which e then allocate experience points to them using special cards. By promoting crews to higher levels, e also increase the strength of our fleet.
Only for nerds
In Star Trek: Alien Domain players will find something for themselves who ho: a) love Star Trek, b) are looking for nostalgia. Graphically the game resembles the titles from a dozen years ago. Pseudo-true battles, tinkering with skill trees, polishing your own fleet will attract, in my opinion, only those who ho would like to relive the old days. Especially watching the clashes and colorful injury numbers floating above the ships can bring a smile to your face. I'm not saying it's a bad game. I just think that Star Trek: Alien Domain has quite a narrow audience. If you like digging up titles from years ago, you're a fan of science fiction and you just feel like getting into a time machine, it's worth taking a look at the production of CBS Studios.
