Fleet Operations is a popular skirmish and multiplayer orientated total conversion modification for Activision's real-time strategy game Star Trek Armada II. The project's goal was not only to create a simple "modification" but as total conversion to make Armada II a worth successor to the second best selling Star Trek game Star Trek: Armada (behind Interplay's Star Trek: 25th Anniversary by a small, but fair margin). Version 3.0 includes advanced graphics, a whole new user interface, completly replaced ship models, 5 balanced races with totally new gameplay and tons of new possibilities making Armada II a real real-time strategy multiplayer game.

The first patch for the last big update has been released, 3.0.7. It's focus is less features but to eliminate a row of minor and some major bugs encountered in the release of 3.0.6. Balancing wise this patch has the biggest impact on the borg vessel resource costs but also fixes a few other minor issues that could have been exploitable in multiplayer games. The AI has been further tweaked, not only technically but also visually - by popular demand - the Hard AI is now named the Merciless AI. On the bug fixing side of things especially the fixed out of sync issues with multiplayer games should be noticed.

Special thanks for all your suggestions and input in the forums and to everyone who helped to test the 3.0.7 pre patch. Patch 3.0.7 is only compatible with a previous 3.0.6 installation. Patching an earlier version (3.0.5a and below) results in a corrupt installation.
