I love this game and it has gone on every PC I've upgraded to. (It works fine on 2k & XP.)

However, if you are looking for a flight sim this will not be for you as the "feel" models more on old ships-of-the-line that fired then spent some time maneuvering for the next shot. (Things are not quite that simple since there are things such as transporter bombs & drones requiring a decision on whether to fire everything or not.)

For those coming from a Starfleet Battles boardgame background, there will be some things to get used to, (probably the most important being it's RTS) but otherwise it's very faithful.

Those coming from a purely Trekker background should be the type to make allowances: This game is based off an alternate-universe Star Trek without license from Paramount for the majority (all?) of the old-series ST movies, so there's lots of creative licensing with things such as races, background, and ship systems.

The support for this game is still very active and some surfing on the net will bring up everything from alternate weapon bitmaps to models of hundreds (thousands) of ships from various sources and TV/movies series. Playing lots of such custom monster behemoths with large, detailed bitmaps and drones and fighters can quickly demand a faster machine. For example, my current 3ghz Celeron will stutter a second of two when a Death Star goes up in flames. (It should be noted that playing the game as-is will not stutter any but a serious ancient machine.) Get the update! Bugs are not fun.

This game gets four stars because the same-ol' monsters and "unknown aliens" that show up in the single-player campaign get seriously old. Otherwise, this is an incredible game.

Addenda: This game is one of the most solid with Wine (0.

This is a computer version of the old paper game called Star Fleet Battles (SFB). It is nearly identical except the real time pace and being on computer rather than on a table with a map and paper accouterments.. It is a real timer Star Ship Battle simulator that can be played alone or Player versus Player over your network. Being a long time player of SFB I fell in love with this game and I feel it is one of the best games ever written. This Orion Pirates game (actually called Star Fleet Command Orion Pirates) is a stand alone expansion of 2 previous versions called Star Fleet command 1 and Starfleet Command Empires at War (Often called SFC 1 and SFC2 with this one referred to as SFCOP for Orion Pirates). The only difference is it has more ships, more weapons, and adds the Orion Pirates races as playable rather than NPC as they are in the 1st 2 games. It is playable on any windows version from Windows XP thru Windows 8 but can not yet be played in windows 10. The trick to winning; learn to balance your power so you can keep everything running on your starship. Have FUN, I sure do!

...is one that adds something worthwhile, without drastically altering what you already liked. This expansion is a stand-alone game which doesn't require you to have SFC2:EAW already installed! It features the often talked about but rarely seen Orion Pirates, which have been part of Trek from the days of TOS. The pirate ship designs are very different from anything seen on TV, but it's not like we've seen very much. While probably worth a few bucks to get the original discs, Orion Pirates, like other old games, can be found on several Abandonware sites for free.

As long as you are not the type of player who needs to feel his heart pumping 120 Beats per min. you will be very happy with this game. It takes a little while to get used to, as it has alot of micro managing involved. But it is totally worth it. It is one of the best RTS (real time strategy) out there. Graphics are nice and if you love star trek, this is a MUST. If you get this title, you can play online (which is what most people do) at Gamespy, for free. Look me up if you need a friend, my call sign is LoneWolfe.

I love these Star Trek Starfleet Command games.
If you have played the others, Orion Pirates is very similar to the other Starfleet Command games. It expands on the races and adds some more ships to the mix.

The best of the Best of the series - Fast shipping - works on windows XP ( yep - i still use XP )
Well - it did come out when XP was released. I'm sure it will work in WIN 7 and 8 in compatibility mode.

I purchased this for my 40 year old son which was on a wish list. He seems to really like it and still learning about all the features. It is a challenge which he likes and he seems very pleased with the game so far and seems to be a winner.

Star Trek: Starfleet Command Orion Pirates is the sequel to the Star Trek: Starfleet Command II Empires at War. Unlike other expansions to PC games, this expansion does not require Starfleet Command I or II to run. You can play Orion Pirates without installing the previous Starfleet Command games. This game has slightly improved graphics from the Starfleet Command II. There are two new Federation ships that you may use in this game (One that resembles the Akira or Enterprise NX-01 Class and another ship that resembles a Challenger class ship). In this game, the player can now play and control the Orion Pirates as they use different modified ships with various weapons and ship designs taken from the Gorn, Romulans, Klingons, Mirak, Lyran, Hydran, and Federation (Imagine the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars with all it's custom parts). Some ships feature X Phasers which are the phasers used by most ships in The Next Generation and also A Phasers which have the capability to short circuit the systems of enemy ships temporarily upon firing. In terms of story, - the plot is not as exciting as the Starfleet Command II game. The action of this game is more intense. The game features new single player skirmishes which include famous scenes from the Star Trek series and Star Trek movies such as "The Wrath of Khan" where you can dog fight with Khan. So in terms of whether or not to purchase this new version of Starfleet Command, is really a hard decision to make. There are not many improvements in this game that would really make the game any different from the previous Starfleet Command games. If you are a die hard Star Trek fan, I would purchase the game for your collection of Star Trek games. However if you are just a gamer who wants naval combat of some sort, I would hold out and wait for Star Trek: Bridge Commander to come out (This game has richer graphics and appears to have a better story line).
