Trekkers who can’t make it to the annual Star Trek convention in Las Vegas can now fix their sensors online at the first Official 3D Virtual Star Trek Convention to also check out the latest in Activision, Inc.’s Star Trek lineup. As a convention co-sponsor, Activision will be giving attendees a special sneak peek at its highly anticipated titles, 'Star Trek Elite Force II' and 'Star Trek Starfleet Command III' by debuting two new gameplay movies.
Taking place August 2-4, 2002, the Official 3D Virtual Star Trek Convention is being produced by virtual-conventions, llc, under license from Viacom Consumer Products, and offers attendees the chance to control their own Star Trek-themed avatar and interact with other fans. Additionally, participants will have access to a "live" wide shot of the main stage at the Official Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas where Leonard Nimoy is scheduled to receive a lifetime achievement award from Creation Entertainment.

"We are thrilled to be a co-sponsor of this ground-breaking event," states Tricia Bertero, vice president, Activision Global Brand Management. "As the top publisher of Star Trek games, our aim is to give fans a chance to experience this rich universe in new ways. The 3D Virtual Star Trek convention continues in this tradition and is the perfect event to showcase our upcoming games."

In Star Trek Elite Force II, players join the ranks of the Hazard Team, an elite Starfleet security unit assigned to the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC 1701-E under the command of the legendary Captain Picard. Over the course of the game, players will engage in first-person combat with the deadliest foes of the Federation including the Borg, Romulans and mysterious new alien species. Star Trek Starfleet Command III offers players a very different experience by allowing players to take total tactical control of their favorite starships and engage in epic strategic warfare. Once at the helm, players will be able to customize their ship's loadout and crew complement for maximum firepower as they explore three separate campaigns played from the perspective of the Federation, Romulan Star Empire and Klingon Empire.
