Quote:A few days ago, word surfaced that Ubisoft's Red Storm division was making a virtual reality game based on Star Trek. Today, we got our first official look at the team-based space flight game, called Star Trek: Bridge Crew. Bridge Crew is supposed to be coming later this year to all major virtual reality platforms, but you can see it above played with an Oculus Rift, using Touch motion controllers. Behind the controls, you'll also find a few familiar faces: The Next Generation's LeVar Burton, Voyager's Jeri Ryan, and the Star Trek reboot's Karl Urban.theverge.com
Quote:The key to efficient starship management, as Captains Picard, Kirk, and Janeway have demonstrated, is communication. With Romulans closing in fast and Klingons on the starboard bow, you can’t be mumbling orders from the captain’s chair — you need the kind of commanding presence to inspire blind devotion in your crew.theverge.com
And now you’ll be able to hone those command skills in virtual reality. Star Trek Bridge Crew — the VR game that puts you in the slip-on space shoes of a Starfleet officer — already emphasizes vocal communication when you’re playing with real humans, but it will soon allow you to use your voice to issue orders to computer-controlled characters, too.
So this is using voice commands for a more immersive experience.
