Victory, you say?
The story for this game is just fantastic. It gives us a general idea about what happened after WCSO, and still leaves a lot to be developed by other games. It works perfectly.
I dunno its pretty irrefutable now. Personally I'm disappointed, franchises with better received movies such as Resident Evil felt no need to incorporate the movies; and whilst I know the feelings of many of the mods here on the matter I fully believe there is no reason you can't have two parallel but different canons for a franchise.
Broadsword - lightly armored???
What type of capital ships are in the game? I know I've seen it mentioned that the ConFed side gets the Midway class but what do the Kilrathi get. Since all the other ships in the game are from earlier games I'm assuming it's a ship we've seen before.
It looks very similar to ships from the WC movie, but it's hard to tell if it's supposed to specifically be a Sivar/Snakier/etc.
"I was actually going to buy the Star Trek: Legacy X-Box theme"
-- Legacy was pretty good. The major complaint is ship movement/targeting.
The ships improve throughout the game and this becomes less of an issue. The initial ship is garbage. It turns so slowly. It makes you say: "I hope the whole game isn't like this"! Then the ships eventually become useable.
As for Legacy, it is a short game. Maybe 10-12 hours of game play. You MAY be better off renting it. 1 or 2 really challenging missions. The rest were pretty easy for me (not for my wife though).
