About this project


Star Trek Civilizations started off as a modification for Galactic Civilizations 3 from Stardock Games.
However due to some limitations of the engine, in order to accomplish the game that we set out to make, it became obvious that we would have to adapt the engine to suit our needs.
The money that we generate from our support will go towards funding licences from CBS (to use the Star Trek IP) and from Stardock Games (to use and adapt their game engine).
The work to complete this game is well underway, but the project requires initial funding to overcome the legal ramifications of releasing the game in the form of the licences.

Risks and challenges

There is always the potential that either CBS or Stardock Games could refuse to grant us a commerical licence for this project.
If for any reason the licences are not granted, we would look to release the game as freeware in the future so as not to impede on any licencing. (This would require unfortunately that you purchase Galactic Civilizations 3 from Stardock Games in order to play our freeware version).
