Original USS Enterprise to be Featured in Star Trek Bridge Crew

Ubisoft announced on Friday that the original version of the USS Enterprise will be added to Star Trek Bridge Crew when it comes to PlayStation VR, Oculus, and the HTC Vive this Spring.

That makes for three playable starships, adding to the previously announced modern version of the Enterprise and the all-new USS Aegis, which was created just for Bridge Crew. David Votypka, the Senior Creative Director at developer Red Storm Entertainment, gave a statement on the addition of the original Enterprise.

“We felt it was important to include a part of classic Star Trek with this game, especially during Star Trek’s 50th anniversary,” said Votypka. “The original U.S.S. Enterprise is such an iconic part of the franchise – it’s the ship that started it all.  The adventures and relationships that took place on the ship are a special part of Star Trek history, so we were determined to give players the opportunity to create their own adventures and stories on this classic ship.  We’re very excited to see player reactions when they step onto the U.S.S. Enterprise original bridge for the first time, and experience Star Trek: Bridge Crew in a whole new way. We’re also appreciative of players’ patience as we finalize work on the game to bring the Star Trek experience we envisioned to life.”

Check out a look at the design of the USS Enterprise from Star Trek: The Original Series in the game below:

In Bridge Crew, you play as one of the operators on the bridge of a Starfleet starship. You can choose to take the role of Captain, Helm, Tactical, or Engineer, and play alongside three other, real-life teammates, or you can go at it alone as the Captain and three AI companions. Other than just trying to keep your starship in the air, you and your crew will be subject to Klingon attacks and various environmental hazards as you attempt to find a new home for the people of Vulcan.

Star Trek Bridge Crew will be available on all three VR platforms on May 30, 2017.
