Emperor Corrino has issued a challenge that the House which can produce the most spice will control its source, the desert planet Dune, with no rules as to how the Houses can achieve the goal. Meanwhile, Lady Elara of the Bene Gesserit and bound concubine to the Emperor, secretly takes the commander - the player - into one of the Heighliners, a person whose bloodline and future the Sisterhood had checked. According to Elara, they saw many visions of the commander dying many times—and only in one vision does the commander live and even rise to control massive armies and bring peace to Arrakis.

I fondly remember this game :)

Even after seeing the film I don't know why, I must have misread it somewhere, but for years I thought that the spice was actually a really efficient and clean fuel (which was also renewable by the worms) and that is why the planet was sought after, hence the famous "He who controls the spice controls the universe". The one who controls the fuel, controls the space travel.
I know since then it's a drug and it IS some way used for space travel through the navigators, but to this day I still think it makes more sense as a fuel source only (well at least for me)

I have the PS version of this. Graphics are low quality, but 3d. That one actually has two colors per faction. Main color is whatever color is chosen by the player (or just blue, red, green in campaign depending on faction), but additionally Harkonnen always have a red secondary color, ordos have green, and atreides blue regardless of primary color. In campaign there's also yellow for smugglers, brown for Fremen, yellow-green for mercs (or just yellow. When combined with grey primary color it may look different), and purple for Corrino's Sardaukar.

The game had some great features like the sandworm and the pavement, I find it sad that these are not picked up by newer rts games.

Dune, worlds first RTS game.
If westwood hadn't made this, who knows maybe Warcraft and Star craft wouldn't exist.
