History of Star Trek
Armada and the sequel Star Trek Armada II'
Armada'1 launched: February 29'th 2000
final 1.2 patch issue: Feb' 2001
Armada'2 launched: December 7'th 2001
patch 1.1 issued: late Jan' 2002
What is clear is that the concept of Armada dates back to at least summer 1999 - a time when graphics cards were mediocre in the extreme, and Pentiums were quietly at 0.1-0.4Ghz (at most).
A2' followed on from
the original relatively quickly, although as one reviewer noted... "A
number of new complexities have been introduced in Armada II, which make it seem
more compelling than the first game from a strategic standpoint. Unfortunately,
in practice not all of these new features are successful. In fact, if you
enjoyed the original Armada, you might find yourself nostalgic for that game
while playing Armada II".
See Gamespot.com for a full review of A2, which also looks back to the superior (in playability terms) of the original Armada.
