Review : This RTS game, quite frankly, rocks. As does any game where you get to use a Klingon Bird of Prey against a target on the ground. There don't seem to be any space levels, though.

Review : I do love the features, and the fact of that you are incharge of a colony, its more of a "Command and Conquer" style game than the normal space combat games that we know from Star Trek. I would prefer if it had more options, a non-war mode that allows you to build the colonies bigger, but the problem with the graphics and that it no longer works on XP Pro (well my version anyway) it lacks, I would love to see a mod or even a "New Worlds II" made by fans or an offical game company.

Review : I hate to be a voice of decent, but I'm shocked to read these overwhelmingly positive reviews of this game. It is hands down one of the worst Real-time Strategy games of our time. To compare it to Command and Conquer is an insult to that franchise, almost as much as to call it a real-time strategy game is an insult to the genre in general. The controls are nigh-impossible, the graphics are bland (yes, even for the time), the storyline is underdeveloped, and the gameplay, the most important part of any game, is atrocious. Units are slow and construct even slower, and to make matters worse, the maps are huge and there's fast way to scout. Plus there's no skirmish/custom mode of any kind, and no one ever played this online, so once you're done with the (largely slow and dull) campaign, that's it! I can attest that it at least works on XP home, however. For what little that's worth. Gamespot's review said it pretty well: "Star Trek: New Worlds promises to let you 'witness colony life at the most fundamental level,' but if that's true, then colony life isn't very exciting."

Review : I second what the marine had to say... save for the absolutely worst RTS of all time... that grave dishonor belongs Total Annihilation: Kingdoms ;)

Review : WTF? This is quite possibly the worst game ever to disgrace my DVD-ROM drive. After playing this, I felt I should apologize to my computer monitor....
