A fan-made recreation of the Enterprise from Star Trek: The Next Generation has been pulled offline following a cease and desist.
Ubisoft has announced that Star Trek: Bridge Crew, its (primarily) virtual reality recreation of the classic sci-fi television show, will be getting a Next Generation themed expansion for PlayStation 4 and PC later this year.
Star Trek: Bridge Crew - The Next Generation, to give the expansion its full and thoroughly unsurprising name, will be available for PSVR, Vive, and Oculus Rift - and, as of December last year, will also work without VR if you don't have the appropriate kit.
When the expansion arrives, crews will be granted a new bridge option for their adventures; alongside the existing bridges of the USS Aegis NX-1787 and classic series USS Enterprise NCC-1701, players will be able to work together on the bridge of the USS Enterprise NCC-1701-D, as seen in Star Trek: The Next Generation.
