SummaryEdit

The Dominion War rages! Now you can take command of Federation, Klingon, Cardassian and Dominion fleets and get right into the battle. No base building, no resource gathering - just unprecedented access to all facets of space combat.
In Star Trek: Deep Space Nine Dominion Wars, you'll command up to six ships simultaneously. Select from more than twenty different starship classes, including several original, never-before-seen ship designs. Choose a captain for each ship. Groom your captains as they move through progressive missions. Establish the crew for each mission - including engineering, security, and bridge personnel. Fully control each ship. Execute sensor sweeps and space scans, allocate power to shields and engines, identify threats, and deploy weapons. Transport crew members for boarding and conquering enemy ships.
Join in multiplayer online gameplay for up to eight players. Play as any one of the four races in such scenarios as "Open Space Deathmatch", "Deathmatch with Asteroids", "Planets", "Nebulae", and "Starbase Attack/Defend". You can also import ships from Star Trek: Starship Creator Warp II, included in the box. Design Defiant-class, Galaxy-class, Akira-class, and Klingon B'rel class Birds of Prey, then fly them in multiplayer Dominion Wars battles.

  • nVidia GeForce 6100 and any newer series


If you have a v1.04 disc, which can be identified by game files dated 2001/9/7, you don't need any patch. There are different version of DW that require different patches:

  • US version 1.01: need US 1.01-1.04 patch
  • Europe version 1.03: need Europe 1.03-1.04 patch
  • German version 1.03: need German 1.03-1.04 patch


Do not download or use the v1.05 patch which will break the game. After patched, set compatibility mode to Windows98/Me if you are using Windows XP.

  • DW requires at least one CD/DVD drive. If you have a laptop, use daemon-tools or alcohol 52% to emulate a virtual CD drive. You can use no-cd exe, but a CD/DVD drive is still necessary.
  • DW doesn't like multiple video cards or monitors, even if you have only one monitor or video card connected, but with two or more in device manager. Check your device manager and remove or delete unusedmonitors.
  • DW in some cases has been known may not run on Vista or Windows7. In cases where it runs, graphical issues may present.
