Star Trek: Starfleet Command III is a Star Trek computer strategy game published in 2002 by Activision.


It is 2379, a few months before the events of Star Trek Nemesis. The alliance between the Federation and the Klingons has never been stronger. Together they have constructed a huge space station called Unity One to represent the achievements of both peoples. Unfortunately, the Romulans do not want the station in operation because of the station's sensor array, which can detect cloaked vessels many sectors away.

"Stardate: 56200.1: It has been sometime since the USS Voyager returned home. The alliance between the United Federation of Planets and the Klingon Empire has never been better, and our peoples are enjoying a new era of peace and prosperity. Together we have sought to build Unity One, the most advanced starbase in the galaxy. Unity One's sophisticated sensor array makes it capable of detecting all ships, even cloaked ships, far into the Neutral Zone. The chaos inherent in the Alpha Quadrant demands that we be vigilant, and we must use every tool available to preserve the peace we worked so hard to create..."


United Federation of PlanetsEdit

Klingon EmpireEdit

Romulan Star EmpireEdit

Borg CollectiveEdit

The Borg Collective is not involved with the storyline of Star Trek: Starfleet Command III. They are a secondary race in multiplayer and conquest modes. Copies of the game sold at Best Buy had an independent Borg campaign that ultimately centered on reassimilating a group of renegade Borg.


The Rakelli are a serpent/humanoid race who originate from Klingon territory. They claim that areas of Klingon space were a part of the Rakelli empire before the Klingons conquered them. Since their fall about a hundred years ago, the Rakelli have sought cold-blooded vengeance against the Klingons, raiding convoys and ships. They wait for the day when they can take revenge on the Klingons. Known Rakelli bases include Beta Thoridor II, and Alpha TyGorkor.


Although the Ferengi Alliance is friendly with the Federation, some vessels still attack smaller ships and freighters. They act very similar to pirates.

Background informationEdit

  • Very few copies of this game were produced, since Activision filed a lawsuit against Paramount nearly a year after its release. As a result, all unsold copes of it and other Activision Star Trek games were taken off store shelves and destroyed.
