Codex Gamicus

Star Trek: Tactical Assault is a Star Trek video game for the Nintendo DS and PlayStation Portable that was developed by Quicksilver Software, also the creators of Star Trek: Starfleet Command.



There are two playable campaigns, each covering a range of missions. The Starfleet campaign is set in 2284 and pre-dates the events of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. The player follows the adventures of Lieutenant Commander Renolds, completing missions and working up to better ships, from a small frigate to a Constitution class starship and beyond. The Klingon campaign is set after the Khitomer Massacre of 2346.

In the single-player game, the Constitution and Miranda class Federation ships are playable, as well as the Klingon D7 and Bird of Prey. There is also a new Starfleet ship, designated as a dreadnought, with three nacelles and a hull style similar to that of the Miranda class.

In campaign mode, strategy is used for battle, dialogues, and decisions. Depending your actions, you'll be awarded with a bronze, silver, or gold medal and one, two, or three upgrade points, respectively.


Both handheld versions offer head-to-head battles between two players. There are roughly twenty playable ships from among five factions: Federation, Klingon, Romulan, Gorn, and Orion.

The Nintendo DS version does not support Download Play or the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service.
