    Star Trek Armada 3? Never heard of it!
    If you consider yourself to be a true-blue Trekkie - OMG - have you ever missed out!!!
    For those of you who have never played Star Trek Armada 3: it's a Trek mod for Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion.
    Actually, STA 3 is a LOT more than just a mod for SoaSE:R: it completely transforms it into a game that directly hits all the right buttons in a true Trekkie soul.
    If you like scifi strategy games and you think you'll get goosebumps when your Excalibur class dreadnought majesticly glides out of the shipyard and warps off to lead your fleet, then you really need to give STA 3 a go.

    STA 3 is a strategy game, set in a variable sized universe that is filled with diiferent kinds of planets, which are inhabited with races from the Star Trek world. At the start of a game you may choose between Federation, Klingon, Romulan, Cardassian and .. the Borg. Once you choose one of these races you get the whole shebang: the ships, the AI interface, the technology tree, everything changes to the specific characteristics of that race. You will even hear some well known Star Trek voices captaining your ships. The attention to detail by the developers is astounding!
    Besides these 'main races' you will also run into Ferengi, Nausicaans, Bajorans and other well-kown Star Trek races as you move from planet, expanding your territory and influence.

    Another awesome fact about STA 3 is that it is STILL being actively developed, updated and patched and the developers still respond to feedback from the STA 3 community. This keeps STA 3 very much alive and in my opinion the best Star Trek mod there is.


    Star Trek Armada 3: Uprising
    STA 3: Uprising is the latest release of the series. It's been available since March 2019. After playing STA 3: Uprising for the past months I can honestly say: the developers have done it again! The is yet another GREAT addition to the gameplay options of STA 3.

    OK, so what's so new and great about STA 3: Uprising?
    Up untill now you had 2 options of expanding your territory and influence: you either warped to someone else's planet with a huge fleet and smacked them into submission, or you developed a powerful domineering culture, the influence of which would also expand throughout the universe and incite revolt and chaos on other planets.
    With the release of STA 3: Uprising you now have an extra option: diplomacy. You don't have to conquer alien races, you can form alliances with them and draw them into your influence by diplomacy and cooperation. Up untill this release the characteristics of the 'minor AI races' weren't really developed, and they didn't really serve any other role than something that you had to subdue in order to gain control of a planet and it's resources.
    But in STA 3 a lot of those characteristics surface in beneficial options that become available once you manage to form an alliance with that particular race on a particular planet.
    Before you can do this you have to master certain skills, so the tech tree has also been altered to accomodate this.
    This adds a whole new field of play and depth to STA 3. One that I personally really enjoyed.

    Want to try out this new feature, or have a go at STA 3 for the first time?
    You have to have the latest version of Sins of a Solar Empire: Rebellion. You have to buy this Ironclad game, either through Steam or another source.
    The Star Trek Armada 3 mod is free - which I find truly awesome of the developers - given the huge amount of time they put into maintaining this mod.
    You can read more about Star Trek Armada 3 and download the mod at Mod DB:

    I hope to see you at the coming STA 3 events!

    This is an amazing MOD, and to say it is entirely fan made is a massive achievement, the finish to the game is remarkable and well worth a play, you can easily lose hours to this game!
