Star Trek has always been about the ensemble. The most memorable line in the entire 53-year-old franchise (other than “Beam me up”) is “The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few… or the one.” It's a philosophy that has driven the success of the show from The Original Series to Discovery or simple savefrom youtube downloader, and it's what makes a multiplayer VR game like Star Trek: Bridge Crew feel like an essential part of that universe.

On Bridge Crew, you and three other players become Starfleet officers on the U.S.S. Aegis - a sleek, Kelvin timeline Federation starship, with additional retro missions (complete with Jolly Rancher toggle switches) on the TOS Enterprise. Bridge Crew was originally released for PC and PlayStation 4 in 2017. A follow up DLC, The Next Generation, was out a year later, which added the Enterprise-D, a new bridge station, and the ability to create Data and Lore-style android avatars in addition to humans and Vulcans. The Oculus Quest release of Star Trek: Bridge Crew brings all of the content from the 2017 original release, including the Star Trek: Next Generation DLC. This untethered experience of playing a multiplayer game immerses you even deeper into the bridge and increases the opportunity for close coordination.
