The new VR game Star Trek: Bridge Crew has been released, so TrekMovie grabbed some cameras and headed to the Ubisoft offices in San Francisco to get a hands-on demonstration of this first virtual reality Star Trek game.
Our crew was there not just to check out this new technology but to also put the game to the test to see if it lives up to the billing of being “the only game to offer a true-to-life level of immersion in the Star Trek universe.”
TrekMovie will also be following this up with a full review of the game with more details, so keep a look out for that.
More from our Demo Crew
The away team TrekMovie sent to Ubisoft was comprised of Michael Owens, Evie Vincent, Jon Sung, and Claire Little. Evie and Jon are part of the creative team behind Tales From Ten Forward, a unique fan series that is based on the concept of having an inebriated fan recount the plot of an episode, which is then “reenacted by our team of actors, and the result is a glimpse into an alternate universe where the crew of the USS Enterprise are generally sassier, usually under-budgeted, and always completely soused”.

An extra thank you to Director of Photography Sarah Jaffe, Assistant DP Sarah Wells, and sound recordist Sepe Rafiei for their hard work.
