Star Trek- Bridge Crew in May; Will Include Original Enterprise

UbiBlog announces the latest release date for Star Trek- Bridge Crew, saying the VR game will beam in on May 30th. The game was originally expected  last November, but yada yada dilithium crystals. The payoff for the wait is they are adding the Enterprise from the original series to the game so you can boldly go where others have gone before. Here's word:

When Star Trek: Bridge Crew arrives on VR platforms, it’ll present players with the opportunity to explore the Star Trek universe from the simulated bridge of a Federation starship, in virtual reality. Better still, you’ll now get to choose which starship you inhabit: In addition to the previously revealed U.S.S. Aegis, a ship created just for the game, you also have the option to serve on Star Trek: The Original Series’ version of the U.S.S. Enterprise, either as a solo captain or as an officer in a crew of up to four players.

Developed in close cooperation with CBS Consumer Products, the Enterprise will be available in the game’s Ongoing Voyages mode, which features procedurally generated solo and co-op missions.

“The original U.S.S. Enterprise is such an iconic part of the franchise,” says David Votypka, senior creative director at Red Storm Entertainment. “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.”

You’ll be able to experience social-VR adventures from the ship – and platform – of your choice when Star Trek: Bridge Crew launches on PlayStation VR, HTC Vive, and Oculus Rift on May 30.

I get why they picked the Enterprise. However I personally would have liked to see the Defiant; it's a tough little ship.

LITTLE?!

EDIT: Ah, cool, it says you can play as just a solo captain.

How can that be? Solo was the captain of the Millennium Falcon!

star trek IP management is always a complete clusterfuck according to anyone who has worked anywhere near it... nothing but nightmare stories when you go beyond the usual corporate PR circle jerking

Never understood why they weren't making ST CRPGs.
Reason is highly likely to be licensing intricacies like cost or control.

he he get it? a "crew"? . Ride around in space with your bros. Run from galactic cops, unlock sweet ground effects for your Enterprise.

In all cereal though, this is ubisoft. It has a 1% chance of being fun.

This is why a really good base game CRPG builder similar to NWN would be an awesome business model to build around. You could easily license any numnber of IPs to churn out content packs so people could make their own Star Trek adventures, D&D, whatever you want in whatever genre you want. Never understood why they weren't making ST CRPGs.

But what if I want a totally anti-social-VR experience, does it come with the M-5 computer if you want to play solo?

EDIT: Ah, cool, it says you can play as just a solo captain.

Will Ryker Include Original Enterprise? Remember, he won't go back. The Borg control everything. Starfleet is gone!

If there was ONE game that would cause me to get a headset it would be this. But considering how basic the controls are, you will never get anything close to Bridge Commander or Starfleet/Klingon Academy.
