-Activision had a license to produce [[Star Trek Games|games from the Star Trek franchise]] for a while. During the time of the TV show Enterprise, Activision was not satisfied any more with the way, Paramount resp. CBS were handling their brand "Star Trek". They were of the opinion, that this was also slowing down the game market for Star Trek games, and therefore actually costing them real money. They even went to court with CBS/Viacom and eventually gave back their license for Star Trek games in general. Therefore these games are not available at [[https://​www.gog.com/​|GOG]] or other retailers. Therefore only the second-hand retail trade remains, e.g. via [[https://​www.ebay.com|eBay]] or [[https://​www.amazon.com|Amazon Market Place]]. This is especially problematic for the title [[Star Trek - Elite Force 2]], which was officially for sale only for a rather short period of time, making original copies of the game rather rare.+Activision had a license to produce [[Star Trek Games|games from the Star Trek franchise]] for a while.
