narrowed my Star Trek choices to stategy games, which are Bridge Commander and Starfleet Command 3. But... I can't figure out which one is good... What should I do?? I have to buy one or the other... My dad won't allow to buy all two.....

In Gamespy, SFC 3 has a better rating, but people sais Bridge commander is also good. what I;m looking for is 1 Good graphics!! 2 Long Storyline and Missions!! 3 Easy to mod and install new ships!!! 4 More Tactical stuff!! 5 True ship to ship Combat!! 6 Detailed stuff of commanding a ship 7 Nice gameplay without getting bord....

I really have to know... if anyone has opinions or experiences, pleese help.... :confused: :mad:

Bridge commanders graphics sweep star fleet command 3 away , even though sfc3 is newer.. Bridge commander has a better and more focused storyline, both the games have picard in it one way or another bridge commander has more and better mods if you want more ship options I would have to say sfc3 has more , because you can launch shuttles for one, otherwise they are very similar, bridge commander all teh way for ship to ship combat, and with all the mods bridge commander has i dont think it could ever get boring..

I really don't like SFC3, SFC2 is much better in my opinion, if I were you I would go with BC, it's cheaper than SFC3 also since it's been out a bit longer than SFC3. The engine and graphics and game play in SFC3 are a bit cheesy if you ask me, still cool but approaching cheese level :agreed:

I guess it depends on your "Point of View". When I got SFC3 I was "extremely" dissapointed. The planet textures and background vistas are terrible. The SFC is a cool series, with SFC2/OP staying my favorite out of the three. But I have become spoiled by the in game "speed" of Bridge Commander. I like using the cinematic views and toggling between the Bridge view in QuickBattle.

If you like a game with "strategy" then get SFC2 "Orion Pirates". If you like to see your ship moving with the "TV" realism of the ST series. And barking out orders from the "Captain's Chair"? Then Bridge Commander is the ticket. Bridge Commander also has the best mods. Out of the two games. :agreed:

Probably SFC:3 has a better rating at gamespy because it's more adapt and easier to play online also it allows you to completely customize your ships' systems (or shipname) without modifications while you can't do so in Bridge Commander (it's a lot more reliable then BC for this in my opinion) also the game offers way more ship classes, said that recursively a lot more people tends to play online SFC:3 than BC (let's say the truth trying to play Bridge Commander online is a real pain...), that reflects a lot on the votes/stats and so the rating the game gets.

However, from what I read you should try ST:BC.

Aren't all those SFC games just 3D ships flying around on a 2D map?

I know at least the first one was. Therefore, buy Bridge Commander. Or have your dad buy you one, then get a job & buy the other for yourself. Or get them both for the price of one on Ebay!

SFC3 is ALOT better. More ships (yay) better single player(diff campaigns) , better multiplayer (2 choices...MP skirmish or dynaverse with no "Scripts" crap) and you can customize all ships which is a very good feature (while BC becomes predicable because you know ships specs). Oh, its more fun too:D
