Distant Worlds is the best space strategy game ever made, although I’ll permit some leeway for the Master of Orion 2 lovers and have a real soft spot for Ascendancy. Hell, if you want to argue a case for Master of Orion 3, I’d love to read it but I’d need a heavy dose of sedatives on hand in case things became a little too weird. If you haven’t already acquainted yourself with Distant Worlds, my conversation with Edward James Olmos about its charms and intricacies may be just what you’re looking for. If you’re already a convert, news of a Star Trek complete conversion mod should be very exciting indeed. It’s here.
