While some of the Star Trek titles have really only appealed to a select few--i.e., die-hard Star Trek fans--this title brings a different slant on the world of tactical combat simulations. Based around a first-person view, you are either the first officer, Captain or Admiral aboard a Galaxy-class ship called the Dauntless. But just because it is first-person doesn't mean that you will be gun's-a-blazing and running from deck to deck like Star Trek Voyager; as the title suggests you will have your bum firmly planted in the chair as you command others, in your spaceship's moment of need. Based across 25 in-depth levels, you are slowly thrown into the melee, learning the systems--with the help of Jean Luc Picard--as you ferry him to another spaceport. Boredom or a quick completion are unlikely. The game also boasts a quick-battle arena where you can set a number of parameters and fight up to 16 other computer or human controlled craft across a LAN or the Internet. If you've ever fancied taking control of the Enterprise, but up until now were afraid of all the tactical RTS-style games such as Star Trek Armada 2, this is a perfect opportunity to earn your wings.--Jason Denwood

Features:
- UPDATED SYSTEM COMPATIBILITY: works well in XP.
- Star Trek: Bridge Commander puts you right where you belong - in the Captain's chair! Set in the NextGen universe (and featuring a couple of surprise guest appearances, complete with the real actors doing the voiceovers), Bridge Commander puts you at the helm in a first-person, "through the vid-screen" view of a Federation starship (see the Amazon.com review for more details).
- Supports mods and multiplayer battles, with an active online community.
