Re: Is Anyone still playing Birth of the Federation?

I used to play this every year during the summer when I was off from school, but I haven't played it in a couple of years now.

I do agree it's the best game Star Trek ever had. I spent countless hours with all the civilizations. I even endured the slow down bug that appears after a while.

Re: Is Anyone still playing Birth of the Federation?

An absolutely great game. My brother was still playing it as recently as last year, but I haven't for quite a few years now.

If you're a fan of 4X (eXplore, eXpand, eXploit, eXterminate) space games, why not try Distant Worlds? Only draw back is it's quite expensive and no demo sadly. However, it is worth it. I make Trek mods for it.

Re: Is Anyone still playing Birth of the Federation?

I love the game and still play it occasionally when I have the chance.
A few years back I compiled a few dozen pages of ideas for a sequel, with the Dominion as a sixth empire, minor aliens from every series and new structures and planet types.
Sadly, we'll never see a sequel, with or without any of those ideas.

I moved on to Starfleet Command when they got the combat right.
