Star Fleet I: The War Begins! can be described as a starship tactical combat simulation but it has its roots in the very early days of computer gaming and, to me at least, the mechanics feel more like that of a board game than a true simulation. This game is actually a clone of an earlier title that originated on university mainframes in the 1970s and it is not the only such clone in existence. So, you might be tempted to describe the game and its gameplay as unoriginal. However, the game does establish an elaborate backstory which is the basis for its small franchise which, along with the game's own colorful history, is arguably much more interesting than the game itself.
