Bridge Commander Warps Out of Dry Dock
and Onto Retail Shelves 

Totally Games Highly Anticipated Space Combat
Sim Touches Down at Retail

SANTA MONICA, Calif., Feb. 28, 2002 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Activision, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI - news) and Totally Games® are putting gamers on the bridge of the most powerful ships in the Federation with the release of Star Trek: Bridge Commander. In the game, players must take command of a Galaxy- class starship after a massive solar eruption destroys a Federation colony and kills the captain. Throughout the title, players will have to outwit, out maneuver and out fight hostile aliens in ship-to-ship combat across the far reaches of space. Star Trek: Bridge Commander is rated ``E'' for everyone by the ESRB and carries a suggested retail price of $49.99.

``Totally Games has made the dream of being a starship captain a reality for millions of fans,'' states Larry Goldberg, executive vice president, Activision Worldwide Studios. ``In Star Trek: Bridge Commander, you can control the massive firepower, maneuverability, configurable systems and crew interaction that is the hallmark of the Star Trek franchise.''

``Totally Games is proud to release to trekkers and gamers everywhere the first title to faithfully recreate the experience of being a starship's captain,'' states Lawrence Holland, president and creative director, Totally Games. ``Star Trek: Bridge Commander delivers the quintessential Star Trek experience by allowing players to show if they have the right stuff for Starfleet through diplomacy as well as blistering ship to ship combat.''

Featuring more than 25 missions with dialog penned by famed sci-fi writer D.C. Fontana, Star Trek: Bridge Commander features an epic campaign that propels players across the Alpha quadrant. Over the course of the single player campaign, players will encounter classic Star Trek antagonists such as Cardassians, Klingons, Romulans and Ferengi, and explore many of Star Trek's fundamental elements -- exploration, diplomacy, combat, rescue, and scientific discovery. Once in command, players can choose the style of play that suits them best, issuing orders to their bridge crew or jumping right into the action by personally taking the helm.

After mastering the single player campaign, players can continue to explore the final frontier in the Quick Battle instant action mode, or warp online for interstellar multiplayer mayhem. Players can control any ship in the game from the tactical view in four different gameplay modes including Deathmatch, Team deathmatch, Federation vs. non-Federation, and Defend the Starbase with up to four-players over the Internet play or eight-players over a LAN.
