Summary[]

Star Fleet Battles is a tactical Starship combat game set roughly in the original series Star Trek Universe. The game allows players to take command of one of several Star Trek fleets (such as Federation, Klingon, or Romulan), or one of a few of Star Fleet Battle's own design (such as Lyran).

It should be noted that the original license for Star Fleet Battles does not come from either Desilu Inc., or Paramount Inc., but from Franz Joseph, the creator of the Star Fleet Technical Manual, though they have now a limited license to continue from Paramount. As such, the universe presented within the game is based not on the television show, but on Franz Joseph's work. This limitation is why Star Fleet Battles cannot use designs found in later official Star Trek ventures, such as TMP or TNG.

Star Fleet Command[]

On July 31, 1999, Interplay Productions released the first of its Star Fleet Command series of computer games. What makes this unusual is that the game combined the regular Star Trek license from Paramount as well as a license from ADB. The result was, effectively, a computerized version of the Star Fleet Battles game, taking place in the official Star Trek universe of the 'movie era'.
