Star Trek fans can tour the bridge of the USS Voyager via the Oculus Rift.

The Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset currently under development which allows gamers to “step inside their favorite games [to] completely immerse themselves in the virtual world.”

The USS Voyager bridge program was created by Thomas Kadlec. “I’m a huge Oculus Rift fan, Star Trek fan, and Unreal Engine 4 [software framework for the development of video games] fan,” he said. “So I just figured I’d mix those all together!”

The USS Voyager bridge demo allows a viewer to “walk around a fairly accurate recreation of the Voyager’s bridge … [staring] out into space as you whiz past distant stars.”

  1. FAIRLY accurate? Looks pretty dead-on to me. It also reminds me how I always thought that Tuvok’s and Kim’s stations would be perfect little nooks in which to hang out and chill out of sight of the captain, if only they had chairs.

  2. Its beautiful work for sure. What in world are they going to do with it? Make a new game?
