Star Trek Fleet Command, the popular mobile strategy game, is making the jump to PC. On Monday, Scopely and developer DIGIT, in partnership with ViacomCBS, announced Star Trek Fleet Command's cross-platform launch, bringing the 4X massively multiplayer online title to PC players. Scopley estimates that Star Trek Fleet Command has seen more than 14 billion battles and over 500 million hours played since launching in November 2018. Originally based on the "Kelvin Timeline" of the rebooted Star Trek film series, content updates have brought new elements from Star Trek: Discovery, The Next Generation, and The Original Series to the game.
Star Trek Fleet Command's PC launch offers fans cross-platform play, allowing for seamless transitions between devices. Players can control the same fleet on their mobile phone as they deploy on their desktop or laptop PC. Social features like Alliances and Battlepass will receive cross-play boosts, helping to bring PC and mobile players together.
David Eckelberry, Vice President and General Manager of Star Trek Fleet Command at Scopely, said in a press release, "The team at Scopely and DIGIT, our Dublin-based Scopely Studio, have long been looking forward to welcoming PC players to the Fleet Command community and providing flexibility to existing mobile players.

Together, we hope to build an even more enjoyable and lasting experience."
