Here's the official synopsis:

"'Star Trek: Infinite' is a grand strategy experience that lets you play your own 'Star Trek' story as the leader of one of four major factions in the galaxy. Choose from the United Federation of Planets, the Klingon Empire, Romulan Star Empire, or Cardassian Union and lead your chosen faction to victory and prosperity.

"Iconic characters such as Picard, Janeway, Sisko, Data, Gowron, Makbar, Garak are just a few that will be available to their respective factions as recruitable officers. A diverse range of ships is also available, from the Federation's Defiant-class, the menacing Cardassian Galor-class vessels, the sleek Romulan D'deridex, or even the formidable Klingon Negh'Var battleships as so many more are ready to command."

The clever designers and developers at Nimble Giant have engineered "Star Trek: Infinite" to deliver an authentic and engaging "Star Trek" experience while giving gamers the opportunity to organically shape the direction of their playthrough depending on the choices made as their favorite faction's fearless leader. 

Besides the aforementioned legacy characters, different factions provide their own distinct set of characters to enlist like Gowron, Makbar, Garak and many others.
