You can all see, speak and interact with one another in virtual reality, using the headset's built-in microphone and touch controllers. Communication is key.

One sample mission has our brave crew flying into near catastrophe, to rescue escape pods from a destroyed space station before the sun goes supernova and cooks everyone.

Bridge Crew takes place in J.J. Abrams' rebooted Star Trek universe, on board a special new ship that resembles the Enterprise, but with quite a few differences. No regular Star Trek actors appear in Bridge Crew -- it's all about you.

LeVar Burton (Geordi La Forge), Jeri Ryan (Seven of Nine) and Karl Urban (the new Dr. McCoy) all reportedly got a big kick out of playing Bridge Crew.
