So Jimbo and I played this last night.
Sooooo good. You basically take control of one of the positions in the Bridge. The sights and sounds are amazing. The little ping you remember, and the sense of being there on the bridge is fantastic.
It's all set in the timeline of the original series although there is now Next Generation dlc which I will serious consider buying.
Jimbo was Captain and I was at the helm. You can flip between different stations if you want. It can be played solo, but co-op is definitely where it is at. You all have to work together at your station to get the job done, be it navigating through asteroid clusters, transporting survivors or blowing the shit out of Klingons.
We Star Trekked across the Universe nearly blowing the shit out of our ship without any help from the Klingons.
If it hadn't been so late when we started I think we'd have played it all night
All you VR and non VR owners need to get on this if you have any love for Star Trek at all.
