STARFLEET 2013™ 480p is a computer-simulated battle based on the famous Star Trek television series and the board game Star Fleet Battles . Via computer terminal, you can clash with enemy Klingon battlecruisers /D7 Class and use the same strategies that James Kirk used. You control a Federation vessel similar to the Enterprise; an academy computer program directs the enemy.

Decisive Victory -- You completely destroy or cripple the attacking force.
Tactical Victory -- You out-maneuver the enemy using high-speed escapes, or the enemy surrenders.

All distances are measured in megameters, one million meters (abbreviated `M'). Speed is expressed in 'Warp Factors'. Each warp factor equals 100M per second. All angles are expressed in common degrees from zero to 360, measured counter-clockwise from the x-axis, similar to reading a protractor. Only two dimensions are used. Play is as follows:

1. You issue one of a number of commands (fire phasers, change course, launch antimatter pods, surrender, etc.) by selecting the appropriate command;

2. The enemy, under programmed instructions, issues a similar command;

3. Both your commands are executed (phasers are fired, probes are launched, damages are assessed, courses changed, etc.) in 1/8 warp second intervals while the vessels move through space;

4. Unless certain end-game conditions are met: you destroy the enemy, the enemy destroys you, you out-maneuver the enemy, you both destroy each other, or one party surrenders; the above steps are repeated.

The following is a list of codes which can be used while in the command mode aboard your ship:

CODE COMMAND ===========

F /PH FIRE PHASERS
F /PTRP FIRE PHOTON TORPEDOS
L-PH LOCK PHASERS
L-TRPT LOCK TORPEDO TUBES
LAP LAUNCH ANTIMATTER PROBE
APC ANTIMATTER PROBE CNTRL
RSH RAISE SHIELDS
LSH LOWER SHIELDS
L/NTRPT LOAD UNLOAD TORPEDO TUBES
HLM HELM COURSE/ WARP FACTOR

Simple Strategy If you are a beginner, a simple strategy to follow is A: fight only one attacker; B: pursue him (code HLM) at warp factor one; C: lock on all phasers (code L-PH); D: continuously take position reports and watch his range; E: when he gets within 1000M, fire all phasers (code F /PH) and keep on firing when he is in range; F: When the enemy is out of range, take damage reports and scans of the enemy (icons - enemy ship console). After a few trial games using the above strategy, you will want to become as efficient as the enemy at firing photon torpedos. Finally, when you master launching antimatter probes, you can designate more that one attacker.

    Most of the buttons dont do what they r supposed to. the raise shield button either arms photons or phasers, i still dont know how to target an enemy ship as clicking on it does nothing. in short this app isnt worth a dollar let alone fifteen. Worst purchase ive made on this store. Im guessing the six people to plus one this are friends of the designer.

    Each game takes around 45 minutes. Federation ship has phasers, torpedos, drones and 350 crew.

    Fantastic futuristic graphics. May require a larger size Android device screen to see all the game information without zooming. Realistic 2D warp space with antimatter devices hailing from all directions and all hell breaking loose.
