Join gaming leaders, alongside GamesBeat and Facebook Gaming, for their 2nd Annual GamesBeat & Facebook Gaming Summit | GamesBeat: Into the Metaverse 2 this upcoming January 25-27, 2022. Learn more about the event. 

The space strategy game Galactic Civilizations III now has Steam Workshop support, and that means it’s time to settle an old score.

While you can use the 250 ships that launched with the game to explore, expand, exploit, and exterminate, community modders have added a huge selection of 234 extra ships for free. Of course, the best ones are from Star Wars and Star Trek. This means you can bash ships from these two universes together to see which is better once and for all.

How busy have modders been? Stardock shipped Galactic Civilizations III with eight factions and 250 vessels. The publisher told GamesBeat today that players have added 181 custom factions and 234 new ships.

We’ve gone ahead and collected some of the best Star Wars and Star Trek ships in a gallery below, and you can find them all by checking out the Galactic Civilizations III Steam Workshop page.
