Roddenberry Entertainment has been working with technology company OTOY on “The Roddenberry Archive” for the last few years with the goal of creating a digital archive of the work of Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry. The initial focus of this project has been virtual recreations of Star Trek ships bearing the name USS Enterprise, and they have just launched a brand-new portal where you can tour the iconic bridges.
Tour the Enterprises
The new free web portal includes many iterations of bridges for ships named Enterprise across Star Trek history. You can tour the different ships via a timeline and expand into each bridge for a 360-degree tour. In some cases, bridge details include working turbo lifts and consoles.
The portal includes the new USS Enterprise-F and USS Enterprise-G from Star Trek: Picard.
A visit to Veridian III
Season 3 of Star Trek: Picard did an update on Star Trek history, adding to the events of the movie Star Trek: Generations. This includes the saucer of the Enterprise-D being recovered from Veridian III and restored by Geordi La Forge at the Starfleet Museum. The new virtual tour reflects this update to Trek history.
This includes a short video showing the recovery and a certain Vulcan visiting the grave of James T. Kirk on Veridian III.
The Roddenberry Archive is a collaboration that involves a number of key figures in Star Trek history who helped build these iconic ships, including Denise and Michael Okuda, Doug Drexler, Daren Dochterman, and now Picard production designer Dave Blass. They are also getting help from Picard showrunner Terry Matalas, Star Trek star William Shatner, and Q himself, John de Lancie.
This introductory video narrated by de Lancie gives you a brief history of the USS Enterprise.
Another new video released today focuses on the USS Enterprise-D, with a history of the bridge design and details about the reconstruction for Star Trek: Picard.
They also released a preview of their extended interview with William Shatner.
