Dominion Wars is an explosive real-time strategy game based on the last two seasons of the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine television series, and allows you to experience every photon blast and phase strike as you campaign through each and every intergalactic struggle.

Raging through the final two seasons of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, the Dominion War pitted an alliance of the Federation and Klingons against the Cardassians and invading Dominion fleets in a prolonged and costly battle for control of the Alpha Quadrant.

Command up to six ships simultaneously. Choose your fleet from more than twenty different classes of starships, including several original, never-before-seen ship designs created exclusively for the game. Officially sanctioned by Paramount, these include the Jem'Hader Strike Cruiser, the Kilingon K'Vort Cha', and the Cardassian Hutet Warship classes.

Film quality special effect include detailed explosions, individualised weapons effects, large scale spatial anomalies such as the Badlands and even animated phaser-rings on all Starfleet starships, just like they appear on the TV series. All ships display multiple levels of damage states, from minor hull scarring to full hull breach. Warp nacelles vent plasma and can even be destroyed.

The title will also include several multiplayer scenarios for Internet and LAN play, such as Starbase attack/defend. Up to eight online gamers can simultaneously play from the point-of-view of any one of the four races - Federation, Klingon, Cardassian or Jem'Hadar.
