Star Trek Bridge Crew in VR is a Trekkie fan’s dream come true

For Star Trek fans out there this has got to be pretty exciting.  With the upcoming Star Trek Bridge Crew game, you can get a chance to be in the control room of the enterprise and work together as a team with your friends do tackle space missions where you work the control panels with different jobs.  Very cool.  See the first video below for preview of the game targetted for May 30th.

Furthermore, if you are going to play with computer AI instead of friends, they are planning to enable voice commands using IBM Watson.

From the Verge: The feature has been made possible using IBM’s VR Speech Sandbox. The software combines IBM Watson’s Speech to Text and Conversation services with the company’s Unity SDK, using the natural language processing capabilities of IBM’s Watson software to parse your barked commands, and allow AI-controlled characters to act on them. Players will be able to launch photon torpedoes, jump to warp speed, or lock S-foils in attack formation (maybe not that last one) by requesting that your crew members push the relevant blinking buttons on their own command consoles.
