How to play Star Command as the Star Trek: The Next Generation crew

Make it so
Product: Star Command | Publisher: War Balloon Games | Genre: Casual, Strategy

Star Command is the best Star Trek game of the year.

Yes, we're well aware that an actual Star Trek game just came out on consoles.

If you want to enlist a ragtag crew of tactical officers, engineers, and doctors, and traipse about the galaxy opening diplomatic relations with aliens, though, War Balloon's Kickstarted iOS game is your best bet.

(Okay, so the game is more about shooting zombies and blowing up spaceships than sipping Earl Grey and debating philosophy. But it's close).

To really get the true Star Trek experience in Star Command, you'll need to carefully pick, name, and assign your crew. Follow our handy guide below to have the cast of Star Trek: The Next Generation under your command.

Step 1: Design your captain

Star Command

Once you've booted up Star Command, your first job is to design your captain. Character customisation is a little shallow, in truth, but we can create a bald white geezer called Jean-Luc Picard, and leave the rest to our imagination.

Step 2: Name your ship

Star Command

Next up, we need to name our ship. Name it the USS Enterprise, and hit that big old tick button.

Step 3: Choose your crew

Star Command

Now for the important bit. When you're able to hire crew members (you'll need tokens, and you'll need to be stationed at Earth if you want humans), scroll through the randomised crew select menu until you see the following faces.

Also, make sure you assign the crew member to the right room so that he or she will sport the correctly coloured uniform.

Star Command

We'll start with Starfleet officer William T. Riker, complete with trademark goatee. Put him on the bridge or in an engine room to give him a red shirt.

Star Command

There are no visors in Star Command, so we'll have to make do with a black visor-less dude. Put him in engineering for a dashing yellow top.

Star Command

Tasha Yar didn't appear much in the Next Generation, but she's still an important sci-fi character. All she needs is short blonde hair and a yellow blouse. Boom.

Star Command

Worf worf worf. You've got two options with Worf: either hire a Trilaxian on planet Norfoo to indicate his alien roots, or just hire a black guy with a goatee. Up to you. Either way, make sure he's wearing yellow.

Star Command

Our first blue-clad healer. Carrot-top Beverly Crusher needs ginger hair, white skin, and should be stationed in the healing room for the full 'Trek experience. Sorry... Treksperience.

Star Command

There are only two skin tone choices in Star Command, so pasty-white android Data will have to make do with a peachy complexion, I'm afraid. Put him in engineering for his yellow shirt.

Star Command

Finally, we have half-human, half-Betazoid counselor Deanna Troi. With no swooping low-cut tops permitted on board Star Command, we'll have to make do with a blue uniform and dark hair.

And Red Dwarf, of course! Great job on this one, though.
