Added DiffLines:

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: The background briefings on enemy commanders in Galactic Conquest mode make it clear that defeated Commanders are often captured and reprogrammed to serve a new side rather than destroyed. There is no possible way to do this in-game.

As you might guess from the title, it's another SpiritualSuccessor to ''TotalAnnihilation'' (the other being ''VideoGame/SupremeCommander''), this time on a galactic scale. Not being limited to just a single planet's surface like in its spiritual predecessors, players can now build and deploy armies across multiple planets in a single map.

Added DiffLines:

** Fully activating a metal planet is this even against multiple opponents, since it will then destroy every other planet in the game in rapid succession.
