From the makers of Homeworld. The game has combat just like Homeworld. The game adds strategy play of colonizing and conquering worlds. Fun game play. The tutorial sucks at explainig things. A lot of the game is learned just by trying stuff.
Sword of Stars was part of a Bajorian prophecy when the three vipers ( 2 Cardassian scientist, 1 spy ) came to DS9. It turns out the sword of stars helped pierce the wormhole to keep it open just enough for communication to travel through it while at an idle state.
