Star Trek: Armada III - The Final Frontier begins with the first stirrings of the Dominion War and allows players to take command of five unique factions, the United Federation of Planets, the Klingon Empire, the Romulan Star Empire, the Cardassian Union/Dominion Alliance, and the Borg Collective. Explore strange new worlds, seek out new life and new civilizations, and boldly go where no one has gone before.
Hello STA3 Fans, My name is Bane, one of the developers of Star Trek Armada 3, CTA and Final Frontier. I'm here to deliver some updates on the next variant of STA3, Star Trek Armada 3: Nemesis. But first...
Much has been happening in recent months since the release of the Final Frontier update in late 2016 and Ambarenya has been preparing a list of fixes for STA3 Final Frontier for an upcoming patch so stay tuned for that, but the team has decided to split the mod into two variants one designed for single player exploration aka STA3: Final Frontier and one designed for Multiplayer STA3: Nemesis, Both will offer the options of playing against AI still in single player and multiplayer, but both will have slightly different content available. Max Loef our Lead Developer will continue to oversee both projects.
Let's talk about STA3 Nemesis however which is being Led by the following developers: Draconis Gul Dukat Bane
Nemesis will be a bug fixed version of all that is in Final Frontier minus the extensive planetary systems and some of the more complex planetary textures (to maintain higher performance when using ironclad online) and will utilise both CTA and Final Frontier Maps, however, it will default to the original CTA nebulas and not contain deep space gravity wells such as ship graveyards. It will include the new capturable stations, random events and neutral updates.
So what's new in Nemesis itself:
Nemesis will feature an entirely new game mode map for STA3 which sees players battle to defeat not only each other's empires but a single station encounter that blocks the path of all players in reaching each other for an all out assault. More critically the station itself contains a secret that can wipe the entire nemesis cluster from the star maps for good.
The station encounter can be done with allies, and the player that strikes the final blow will receive magnificent bonuses for completing the encounter which will take up to twenty minutes to fight alone. However, players are indeed fickle so just be careful your allies don't turn on you! Also, just a word of warning for those smart players who are thinking of going the shockwave route the station seems to be able to target vessels with colossal energy signatures...
As well as this you get all the bug fixes, and rebalancing for multiplayer to continue the enjoyment of STA3 into the future.
Hopefully, this brief update has peaked your interest in STA3 Nemesis, I'd also like to take the opportunity to invite all Armada 3 fans to the GBgaming discord to find multiplayer games of STA3 and join our fantastic gaming community here at Discord.gg where you can also get technical support for STA3 from community members and speak to members of both the STA3 and Infinities development team even the mighty Max himself. We look forward to seeing you there and stay tuned to GBGaming to for dev diaries and trailers for STA3 Nemesis.
