No longer do you represent mere interplanetary dictators. In Master of Orion 3, you become the controlling force behind an entire galactic civilization. You'll explore solar systems, complete with jump lanes, wormholes, and hostile alien races, and take part in large battles. Crush your enemies with oppressive force or negotiate to scheme your way to the top. It is not enough to be an able economist or a great captain to succeed. Political, administrative, and espionage skills must be applied to craft your civilization's glorious chapter in the annals of time and space to claim the rightful title of Master of Orion.
