I didn't make it!
Hi - I'm trying to decide if I should buy this game or not. I read up on it but haven't been able to find anything about the ability to pause / issue commands. Is it possible with this game? With so many different abilities of each ship, I just don't want it to become a click-fest like Warcraft 3. Thanks!

Hi Aquagamer, Visit the network site and download the demo - http://armada2.filefront.com/file/Star_Trek_Armada_Demo;34266
As far as i can see about the pause and command options it appears it is possible to que up attacks whilst the game is paused, don't take my word for it though...hopefully you will be able to avoid the "clickfest" and the resulting RSI...

The game does have a pause button (it's the pause/break button) and you can group ships into fleets or select all the same class etc to issue commands. I haven't played Warcraft, but having played the game and it's predecessor for slightly over ten years now, I can say that it's not a click fest.
I do however think finding the game to buy will be very difficult and expensive, however if you have the money or have found it cheap you should grab it asap as they are rare and it's a really great game especially with all the great mods out there. :)
