Welcome! These are the most comprehensive Starfleet Command III (SFC3) conquest mods currently available for download.

Typhon Pact V 6.0.2 takes place in the TNG Universe following the aftermath of Star Trek: Nemesis and the Hobus Star collapse, resulting in the creation of the Typhon Pact by the Romulan Empire and its allies.

(Typhon Pact V 7.0 coming soon!)

Typhon Pact: Borg Invasion V 1.5 is an overlay mod for our Typhon Pact mod and takes place approximately 5-years into the war between the Federation and the Typhon Pact. Species 8472 has nearly succeeded in defeating the Borg; however, the Borg are undeterred and have glimpsed a temporal outcome in the Mirror Universe that threatens to converge unless they act swiftly - there may be no stopping the Borg this time.

(Typhon Pact: Borg Invasion V 2.0 coming soon!)

MirrorrorriM V 3.5.1 takes place in the Mirror Universe during the same time as our Typhon Pact mod and follows the events after the fall of Terok Nor. A shattered universe can unite or face defeat from Species 8472.

(MirrorrorriM V 4.0 coming soon!)

Our mods provide instructions for installation and all the necessary files within to include the required All Language Taldren Beta v534b patch (where noted). For newcomers, our mods are singleplayer (multiplayer where noted) fully integrated 10-race (4 to 8 playable) conquest campaign mods set on a 30 x 50 galactic hex. Taldren's original missions and tutorials features are disabled for these mods. Retain a copy of your vanilla Sfc3 Activision folder in your directory after set up for stock or additional mod play. You will need your copy of Activision's Starfleet Command III and the CD key to install and play beyond skirmish (demo). Digital copies will require the CD key bypass.

Developer Comments UPDATE JULY 2021 (PLEASE READ):


  • Starfleet Command III was originally developed for earlier Windows platforms; however, our mods have been set up to play with Windows XP, 7 & 10*.

    • *WINDOWS 10 NOTICE: Microsoft updates since October of 2019 can be problematic with installation, visual rendering and general game play. The download options provided below may correct for the issue for some players, but obviously not for all. At this time, we are no longer able to support troubleshooting issues on Windows 10 installs. We highly recommend setting up a VM and run the game via Windows XP or 7. A download option is available below for you to try with a VM setup. Good luck.

  • All mods have been updated for use with VMware Machine 15.5 on Windows XP. Instructions on how to properly set up your VMware Machine is available (see SFC3 HD Patch for Windows XP link box below). Note: A final update release of each of our mods will be available in the next few months or so correcting for minor issues and adjusting for better interaction with the AI. Our mods will have been reconfigured for singleplayer play only. When completed, we will update the downloads.
  • Please read provided game play and tip insights on the download links and any included with our mods prior to contacting us with mod/game questions, as the information provided will typically resolve common issues. Some links may no longer be available, so if you have a question please let us know or you can post at our main forum page here: Starfleet Command Forums
  • If you lose this page bookmark while searching for our mods, you can search for 'AlDaja'. Click on the user name and it will bring you back here.
  • Use the SFCLauncher and follow setup for full screen play.
  • XP users: If you experience rendering issues with the space backgrounds, you can swap out Adam's Space Backgrounds. The mods currently use the RLE bitmaps. Download and swap them out with the RGB bitmaps. If you still are getting FPS/rendering issues, try adjusting the physical memory for your VMware Workstation and/or swap the "Space" (Assets/Models) in the models folder out with the stock folder for Sfc3.
  • IMPORTANT: The updated SFC3.EXE may have been omitted from one or more of the uploads for these mods. If while playing you notice each race beyond the default (Federation, Klingon, Romulan, Borg) slots have the Federation shuttle, then you have the wrong SFC3.EXE. Up-to-date version can be found here: 2019 SFC3.exe
  • Mission debug issues: When playing some of the missions (specifically base/planet assault/defense) an insertion error message may come up. To continue with the mission, select "ignore". Usually, this will allow the mission to load without issue. Presumably this is an impeded scripting issue that the game cannot differentiate between multiplayer and singleplayer and/or cannot resolve a conflict with pitting enemies/allies against one another when loading the mission.

Additional Notes:

If you experience graphical issues while playing on Windows 10 (bloated HUD images floating while playing, etc.), save and exit your game then reload. This usually corrects for the issue. You can also add the game to your AMD user interface (or presumably other graphic card platform) and launch the game from there. It does help.

AMD Radeon users: Versions 20 - 21.7.1 has corrected the "warp bug" issue for SFC3 on Windows 10. If it recurs, exit the game complete and relaunch this usually clears the glitch. You may need to reboot if the problem persists. Also, if you are experiencing rendering, game lag/crash problems, AMD corrects for this by adding SFC3 to your AMD game library. More here: AMD and SFC3

TIP: Using a professional defrag/optimization program that is compatible for gaming, will eliminate the inconvenience of Runtime and/or Library Full errors SFC3 may generate interrupting game play. Allow the software to run automatically and it will keep the cache files clear.

I have recently returned to playing each of the mods (time consuming given the amount of ships/races to play through) and am updating/correcting for minor or overlooked issues (ship/character/map balance issues, etc.) and hope to have a final release at some point for each mod. As far as missions for each mod though, these will not be updated from the last beta release currently with the mods that are downloadable. They do work for the most part, but you may encounter a runtime error during some missions when they are loading. If you come across a runtime error, just click "ignore" this usually corrects for the AI hosting conflict when the mission is attempting to load. SFC3's logic if this/than that impeded settings sometimes can't or won't allow resolution when calculating how many AI to pit against the player/AI or when assigning AI as a neutral/ally character. By clicking ignore, it appears to release the run error and defaults to the original allowable (?) AI populating build set up by Taldren. It may mean if you have several enemy AI in the hex, you will have to attack each one or its fleet until the hex is depleted of enemy AI or the game accepts a resolution it can handle. It seems to happen most often during station or planetary assault/defense.

If you get a mesh build error or memory release-type error, I believe this is a Windows 10 issue and not the mod or the Taldren missions. You can attempt to resolve the issue by clicking ignore or debug, but usually no matter what you do, the game will crash. Re-loading the game and clicking auto save will allow you to pick back up where you left off. These error messages thus far, only seem to show up playing on Windows 10.

UP DATE 8/21/21: Some of the load/crash issues have been resolved since the above post. I was able to correct for some of the mission issues (not all that require C++, I'm afraid). For the most part, mod testing only results in minor issues and this is a combination of script errors that I am currently not able to resolve or a combination of SFC3's "brokenness" misbehaving as a result of Windows 10 or on its own. Usually, selecting ignore or exiting the game and reloading via auto-save corrects the problem. Recently, I have been playing the mods with the AMD monitoring and O&O Defrag software and its has made a positive contribution to game play with Windows 10.

A few of the new beta missions we introduced a year or so ago I just had to scrap and place back ones that were more stable from previous releases. MirrorrorriM's Planetary Assault/Defense Meta was one such file. There was a consistent and progressive cascade issue when missions attempted to load.

A few new models will be introduced to each mod, notable the updated Ares class battlecruiser which will be featured in the Typhon Pact mod series. Also may introduce a wider range of abilities on some vessels, like antimatter mines.

more to come...

New updated conquest maps are now available for download. These new maps have been adjusted for quicker Hex flip for less defending regions and allows for better AI/Human interaction. Update also included the 2019 SFC3.EXE application that did not get uploaded with Typhon Pact V 6.0.1 and includes a minor correction for the Strings in Typhon Pact and Borg Invasion mods.

I'm wanting to play SFC3 again and I see you have it running on VMWare Workstation 15.5. I can't install it from physical CD on Windows 10 (DRM) so I'm down to trying to run it on VMWare Fusion on my Mac. Do you think it will work?

Worth a try.

I might also try opening up the game menu on the disc and launch the game/install from the executable application directly. Some Windows 10 set ups for whatever reason won’t auto-run the disc. I might also recommend running the disc from a portable read/writer. That’s what I had to do.

VMWare does have a free trial so I might give it a shot at least. Thanks for the tips.

HD Patch for Windows XP file download: HD_for_XP.rar was missing the CORRECT SFC3.EXE application file.

Check your version. The SFC3.EXE in the directory should have a date stamp of 10/1/2019. If not, download the update: HD_for_XP.1.rar. I updated the download a few moments ago.

Let me know if it works. It seems the earlier versions for Mac with this game had issues.

Check the recent update upload for our mods. Map has been improved to account for faster hex flipping. Enjoy!

UP DATE 8/21/21: New maps (30x50 9+Neutral) that will be included with the mods have been set for accelerated hex flip - note, some hexes may flip neutral or reduce the hex value if occupied by your empire, if the game determines the conclusion of the mission as a draw or marginal victory. I have also set the ratio to allow for the enemy AI to be more proactive in flipping hexes for their goals and allowed uncharted space to do the same.
