"Star Trek: Infinite", a new 4X strategy game from Paradox Interactive, has debuted on macOS, offering players an expansive galactic playground filled with diplomatic intrigue, espionage, and thrilling warfare.




Players can select from four distinct factions: the United Federation of Planets, Klingon Empire, Romulan Star Empire, or Cardassian Union. The role of faction leader holds significant sway in determining the outcome, as each faction offers a unique approach to the game's progression.

Star Trek: Infinite delivers an authentic Star Trek experience where players' leadership choices shape the narrative. Align with the Federation to recruit iconic captains like Picard, Janeway, Sisko, and Data, or choose other factions for well-known characters like Gowron, Makbar, Garak, and more.



Players choose from a range of starships tailored to their faction and character. Options include the Federation's Intrepid and Defiant class ships, Cardassian Galor class vessels, Romulan D'deridex, and Klingon Negh'Var battleships. The Enterprise-D can be unlocked and added to the Federation's fleet via a unique Star Trek: Infinite storytelling system.

Star Trek: Infinite is available on Steam for $29.99 or $39.99 for the deluxe edition. It is available for Apple Silicon, and will run on just about any Intel Mac made after 2016.

    Wow, they really didn't try to hide the roots, did they?  If it wasn't for the clearly Star Trek races I'd have just said that's Stellaris.  Seems like it probably could have just been a DLC.

    No, they didn't — it was officially described as such:

    "Star Trek: Infinite is built upon the core systems of Stellaris, leveraging the deep and complex system and making them its own. Aspects of these systems have been streamlined and simplified to better resonate with the Star Trek franchise."

    Alas, even though the game’s universe is limited to the alpha quadrant, the [humans] still calls it Infinite… 👀🙈

    I feel like it's got good skin, and good bones (given that it's built on a stripped-down Stellaris engine), but no real meat or connective tissue.

    Mike's short review? Wait for patches and perhaps some more content.
